Our 30th Anniversary Season continued this year at the GM Nationals at Carlisle Events and while the weather did not cooperate with us for the first time in many years the Staff and Management of Carlisle Events did by recognizing our 30th year and being one of the longest attending organizations at the GM Nationals. Tyler Staley and Aubrey Atwell were as alwas gracious to us and always making sure we did not need anything for the three day weekend event. Tyler presented us a special made banned recognizing our 30th anniversary and tenure at the Nationals which was a total surprise!! Our thanks to them both and the Miller Family for making us feel so welcome and important at a National event of this class.

Friday was a beautiful day and while it not known for high attendance we had a good amount of Oldsmobiles on site and we waited for Saturday as we along with the Delaware Valley Olds Chapter give our own awards each year in addition to those picked by Carlisle Events. Ken Whitcomb and Rich Saullo were Celebrity Judges for the event each being allowed to pick thier best automobile and present this prestigous award. Ken picked Keith Shannon's 1972 Cutlass and Rich Saullo picked Brian and Jamie Barberie's 1969 rare Hurst Olds as Celebrity Judges Awards. Our members did very well in Carlisle judging for a complete list of winners visit www.carlisleevents.com and click on 2015 GM Nationals winners.

Saturday rained so hard we had at least two inches of standing water under our huge tens and if member Bill Myers did not go back home to get tarps for us to block 3 sides of the tent we would have sold our Oldsmobiles and began to build an ark....LOL We owe Ken a pair of sneakers as hed had to toss them after the event. Thanks to Bill and Darlene Myers for all the help and great snacks and food for the weekend we all enjoyed everything.
