The 18th All Odds Nationals (AON2015) and the 1st Crown Classics Reunion (CCR) saw mostly cloudy skies with a short and light rain early on but cloudy for the rest of the day. It didn’t pour down rain so all in all it was good.
Last year was the 25th Crown Picnic and this year it’s “Crown Classics Reunion” was decided for those of us that love Crowns, a reunion each year during AON. There were 3 on display from Crown Classics including a 40 series and an MS51 Hard Top.
