ZDayZ continues to move closer and, as it does, we are working to ensure there is a wide range of activities to keep everyone busy! This week, a few reminders and our tentative ZDayZ Schedule!

Room Reservations!

If you have not done so yet, be sure to book your room or cabin soon! Fontana Village Resort has just over 100 rooms/cabins and our last update from them indicates about half of those are already booked! We plan to identify overflow sites if necessary, but believe me, you will want to be on-site at the heart of ZDayZ if at all possible. To book rooms, call Fontana Village Resort at 1-800-849-2258. Room/Cabin information can be found at www.fontanavillage.com.

Car Show Pre-Registration & T-Shirt Pre-Orders!

There has already been a great response to the pre-registration form sent out a few weeks ago. Please keep them coming. The more pre-registration forms we receive, the easier it is for us to plan and prepare for ZDayZ weekend. NOTE: Even if you are not planning to enter the car show, the pre-registration form is also used to pre-order your event t-shirts (guarantees specific sizes) and to pay for the Saturday night BBQ dinner ahead of time.

Further incentive to pre-register! Since pre-registration makes things easier on us, we wanted to say “thank you” somehow for those folks who are taking the time to pre-register. So, each person who submits a car show pre-registration is guaranteed to receive, as part of their registration pack, the ZDayZ keychain shown here. These will be limited. If we have extras available they will be available for sale at the event, but those who pre-register their car for the show will receive one absolutely free!

ZDayZ Schedule of Events (Tentative)

Though the information provided is tentative, we are confident the schedule provided is close to being official. There is a possibility of some rescheduling, but would most likely be limited to minor timing changes if anything. Watch our website, www.zdayzevents.com, for updates.

Because several items are planned throughout the day on Saturday, we tried to leave most of Friday and Sunday open for driving. Activities noted with an * include prizes, giveaways, awards, or some combination of the three.

Sport Z Magazine Coverage!

For the second consecutive year, we are fortunate to have representatives of Sport Z Magazine on-site supporting and covering our event! Expect to see Bob Bell and Art Singer mingling with all the Z-enthusiasts to get inspiration for the next issue of Sport Z. Who knows… if you’re lucky, maybe your car will find its way into the magazine!

Featured Sponsor Club: Middle Tennessee Z Club

Nestled in the heart of Nashville, TN is a group of Z-lovers bordering on the fanatic. Each one loves their Z-car and the thrill of driving it. More importantly, this group just knows how to have fun. They are a great addition to any event, Z-related or not. Members can frequently be found hanging out at Crawford Z Car Service in Nashville. (I guess having the company owner as a MTZC member is a good thing!) Be sure to watch for their annual show coming up in April. This year Z-Attack 5 is being held April 15 & 16 and includes a Nissan Assembly Plant Tour, Chili Party, People’s Choice Car Show, and plenty of hi-jinx from the MTZC regulars. I attended this event last year and cannot begin to describe how much fun it was. If you have any questions about the club or Z-Attack 5, contact Randy Shemin or Doug Stewart through the MTZC website, www.middletennesseezclub.com.

Featured Sponsor: Sport Z Magazine

Not only is Sport Z covering ZDayZ… they are a returning sponsor! If you haven’t taken the time yet to pick up Sport Z Magazine, you should head to your local newsstand right now and buy an issue. Sport Z arrived on the scene toward the end of 2000 to cover the world of the Z-car… providing feature articles, how-to’s, news, and more. In the 4+ years since the magazine debuted, it has grown in popularity, expanded its coverage, and continues to provide quality articles Z-enthusiasts are eager to read. The current issue is a hefty 72-pages and now includes coverage of the Infiniti G35. Nationally distributed, you should be able to find a copy locally (if your newsstand is not sold out!). So grab one and find out the latest happenings in the Z-world. More news and fun can be found on their frequently updated website, www.sportzmagazine.com.

Featured Sponsor: GSC Motorsports

One of our new sponsors for 2005, GSC Motorsports carries a wide range of performance parts, specializing in parts for the 350Z, Supra, and EVO. Located in Charleston, SC, the company was formed in 2002 by a group of enthusiasts who, like most of us, enjoy transforming their stock, some-what mundane sports cars into rolling mechanical marvels. Employees of GSC are frequently involved in sanctioned racing events and pass along their experience and knowledge to their customers. For more information on GSC and the products they carry, contact them at 1-866-548-4472, or visit their website, www.gscmotorsports.com.

More news in a few weeks!
