The N.W. Chapter wishes to sincerely thank everybody who attended the August 2015 Can-Am Zone Meet. On Friday, the Studebaker faithful came to Kelso, Washington. The swap meet was “on” and there were a lot of vendors, with ample wares to be had. The Friday afternoon cruise to Stuffies, a 50’s diner was great, as the Studebaker crowd mixed well with the local car cruisers from 3-7 pm.

The Friday Night Ice Cream Social began at 7pm and ran until 10pm. We had an excellent slide show of 800+ pics from car shows, Zone Meets, NW Overdrives, International Meets and National Meets in Australia and New Zealand. Lots of people, their cars and scenery. A good time was had by all of the 155 participants who attended.

On Saturday, the show field was a circular pattern held in the park. With participant choice judging, the people were free to mill about and have fun. We had 2 “teen’s” cars that had their original trans axles. Yes, that’s right! Trans axles are NOT a new thing and Studebaker did it 100 years ago, along with electric cars and trucks preceding them 110 years ago! 65 vehicles made it to the show field with another 10 or so at the meet hotel. The Hospitality Room was in full swing after the show ended at 3pm. Good job to the crew there.

The weather was a tad blustery and the projected rain (1 and 1/2” to 2”) never amounted to much, but may have kept some of our fellow Studebaker friends away.

The banquet started at 6pm with Happy Hour and our slide show. Dinners were delivered promptly and then shortly after dessert, the raffle and auction happened. A South Bend pocket watch fetched $225. The Awards presentation was beautifully done with winners’ names and cars on the big screen. Long distance awards, Canadian and U.S. were put up with the Hard Luck winner getting a lamp trophy. 165 Studebaker fans attended.

Sunday morn the tour started and up we went to view Mt. St. Helens, only partially Obscured by Clouds (P.F). Then we went down to the Bluffs for a tasty bite at the Lodge and on to motor home.

Thank you to everyone for coming, and hope you had a good time at your Zone Meet.
