This was an amazing week end with weather that was better that could be asked for. It was amazing to see 51 Studebakers parked on the top of the clyde hydro dam with the sun shinning down. The trip to the Hayes engineering works and homestaed made us aware of just what those before us had done for this country. A big thanks to Murray, Jacky, Ray for a very well organised Nationals, well done and many thanks. I know my family had a great time.
