Midwest Z Fest 2009 in Colorado Sept 10-13

15 posts in this topic

The Z Car Club of Colorado will be hosting the 2009 Midwest Z Fest in Denver on September 10-13. We're still at the early stages of planning, but we're going to have a variety of events including:

- Track event at the new High Plains Raceway

- Shine and Show

- Mountain Drives (possibly to include a car museum)

- Awards Banquet

We've set up a site at www.midwestzfest.com where you'll be able to keep abreast as things firm up. In the next few weeks we'll have a hotel selected and will be able to provide specifics on the schedule and costs. In the mean time, if you ever thought about visiting Colorado, here's a great reason to do it this year.

This is great news! You can count on cousin David and I will be there. My daughter and granddaughter live there also so will make it a family event.

Garagegoon, maybe we can all go out together. I like taking the back roads through all of the small towns, more exposure to the public. I went by a school yard last year and an 8 year old boy yelled out, "Cool car Mr., lay a scratch".

Only 122 days left. Hope to have it repainted back to 908 by then.

Rod, do you mean 918 (Orange)? What was the original color of your car?

Planning is well on its way for the MZF 2009. People will be arriving on Thursday September 10th at the hotel for a Meet and Greet. Friday we'll have a Shine n Show at Tynan's Nissan and an open dinner (plenty of fun places to go downtown Denver). Saturday will have 2 options: spend a day on the new High Plains Raceway track, or take a drive down to Garden of the Gods. At the end of the day we'll have a banquet with auctions and awards. For those staying over on Sunday, we'll have a mountain drive up into Idaho Springs. All together it will be nearly 4 days to enjoy your Z and meet and get to know other fellow Z owners in beautiful Colorado. And keep in mind that if you have an Infinit G35/37 or even early Roadsters, you're invited too.

I do have to bring up a little reality check given these tough economic times: Events like these are notorious for people signing up at the last minute. The problem for the club hosting it is that financial commitments for things such as rooms and banquets have to be made much farther in advance. Usually it's safe to "build it and they will come" but with the economy remaining weak, this is probably not the year to take those kinds of risks. What this all means is that if you are planning on coming, please sign up in the next 2 weeks to ensure that we'll be able to make the event happen.

Visit the website at www.midwestzfest.com to learn more. You can register online, or print out the form and mail it if you prefer. We at the Z Car Club of Colorado hope you can join us!

How many sign ups are there?

I think it's currently around 30 or so - history shows that there's usually a surge at the last moment.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, fractured vertebre, I will be unable to attend the festivities as planed. I think my grand daughter is more upset than I am.
