Torbanlea Picnic Races – October 2012
Monday, October 29, 2012 10:58

Another Great Club Event was held on the weekend of 20th October, 2012 at Torbanlea Picnic Races.

Torbanlea Picnic Races is a 20 minute drive North from Maryborough. Our Studebaker group stayed at the Lamington Hotel in Maryborough with everyone meeting up for Friday night dinner at the Hotel. The following morning a Special Race Day bus was arranged to take us all to the Picnic Races at 9.00am.

And the Winner is......

24 Studebaker Club Members had a fun day watching the action packed program on & off the track. The Amateur Jockey’s Bush Races, Mini Trotters, Wood Chopping, Chainsaw Racing Exhibition, Fashion of the Field, Tug-O-War with Shane Webcke & Foot Races for the children, all of this kept everyone amused for the day.

The bus arrived at 5pm to take the weary but happy Studebaker people back to Maryborough just in time to go to Snow & Suzie’s place for Saturday night dinner as per tradition. We have all been going to the Maryborough Meet for 10 years now. At the dinner Suzie had a celebration 10 year anniversary cake with a yellow 51 Bullet Nose Studebaker sitting on top.

Everyone had a piece to celebrate. The night was a fairly early finish as the big day at the Races had everybody raced out! Next morning, we all had breakfast together & said our goodbyes until the same place, same time again next year. Thankyou  to Snow, Suzie and family for all your wonderful hospitality.   To view more of the Studebaker Race Day, please click on Gallery
