ZCON 2016 - Toronto (Who is going?)

Recommended Posts

Other than the wrong front brake pads and the booster leaking, race car ran great. Swapped out the 4:38 for the 4:11 diff, got the rotors turned, waiting on the new custom pads which leaves just the booster, brake ducts and the new side mirrors to install before giving it a quick once over and a cleaning.

I'm on final approach for this event. In theory, I'm registered and have hotel reservations. My plan is to spend Wednesday night in Niagara Falls, CA and then finish the drive to Toronto on Thursday morning.

Here's my rough interpretation of the schedule of events for the days:

Tuesday - Opening reception at hotel and chili party dinner evening
Wednesday - Judged show at hotel and dinner cruise evening
Thursday - Track day at motorsport course and distillery district evening
Friday - Autocross and road rally - nothing planned for evening
Saturday - Peoples choice car show at Bruce's Mill and awards banquet evening

Obviously, I'm going to miss the first two days, but I'm planning to do the distillery district event and go to the people's choice show on Saturday (as a spectator, not a contestant). And I'm hoping to make the banquet at the end.

Who's the social director this time? I can foresee another emergency meeting of the ClassicZ Club at the hotel bar!

Of course you are! Hate I can't make it. I have been looking forward to it after last year... If I'm lucky I will have a running Z next year if it's not too far

There's something in Nashville next year, maybe zcon 2017?

I'll be there for sure, poolside. :)

I started this thread but now find I won't be able to make good on it.  My wife has developed a sinus issue that prevents her travel so we've cancelled our plans for Toronto.  Those of the CZCC group that make it, hoist one for me.  ZAttack in Nashville sounds great, its going on the dance card.  We should be able to build a respectable Memphis CZCC reunion!

Thank goodness Zup is coming. We need all the Jim's we can get after the unfortunate bow-out of the esteemed jfa above. I'm counting five so far.

Sorry that it's too far for a bunch of you guys, and jfa, I'm so sorry to hear that you were planning to attend, but have been sidelined by problems.

zKars, you misunderstood the Jim... S30Driver (Jim) was saying that he and Zup (Jim) would probably be at the ZAttack in Nashville, not this upcoming Zcon. So, now that jfa had to bow out, none of the three (S30Driver, Zup, or jfa) are going to be in Toronto.

But you'll have me!!  LOL

Nashville is very doable for me!  Steve and Cliff plus anyone else, we got us a Convoy! LOL

The GZC will probably have a convoy up to Nashville for Z Attack, and you guys will be welcome to join it.

You want to get in on this @Tomcat and @dtshaw66 :)  We can shoot straight up I-65 or plan out a more scenic drive, meeting up with the others.  Big fun.

It's sometime next summer.  There'll be a lot more information as it gets closer, Middle Tennessee Z Club puts it on.

I will definitely plan on it! Barring some cat-arse-trophy, I'll have time to get my car sorted out and road-worthy.There are lots of interesting alternate routes from my house to Nashville. One year, on the way to "The Derby", it took me and my brother-in-law 8 hours to make the 90 mile drive ... but we were a whole lot younger and a whole lot more reckless then!

Fewer Jims. Hmmm.  Likely a good thing. I confuse easily. Mind you if I just say "Jim" the chances of someone answering   is as good as it was before. Oh well....

For example, I'm bringing a white Nissan, but I can't remember which one I decided on...

Having a bunch of Jims together is crazy fun... a bit like "Whose on First?"!  You don't know what you've missed until you've been there. :D

Bruce is going to have to work doubly hard to fill in the gaps.  I have full confidence he will be successful!

Yes, Having a bunch of Jims together is crazy fun. If you're the only one this time, maybe you can claim multiple personalities to cover the field?

I'll do my best to cover the gaps. Rule 1 - No Pooftas, eh?

So JimK, when are you getting there?

We will be pulling into the hotel mid day Monday, staying in Sault Ste Marie the night before. You know, in all the long weekend returning traffic... yuck.... Have another Jim with me for good measure..

In Regina tonight. I'm from here, and I still don't like it everytime I come back.

Jims, Wow you've still got a long way to go. Hope it's smooth sailing!

And Granny, Thanks for that weather forecast! Looks good so far!
