ZCON 2018 Roll Call

Recommended Posts

Well, it's just about 3 weeks until opening ceremonies for ZCON 2018. Who is in?

By the way, the typical high temperatures for mid October are in the low to mid 70s. Lows are typically in the mid 50s to upper 40s. It will be great driving weather for those of us bringing S30s. B)

We're IN

Jim Smirlies (S30driver), Kagy (wifey), Tavish (the varmint) and I will arrive on Sunday the 14th driving the 720 miles down from  N.W.Arkansas through Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama into Atlanta.

We are booked into the extended stay portion of the Sonesta on the ground level. Look for the NWAZCC banner on the canopy tent and the little white fuzzball---We can't wait to greet each and all you guys.

Thanks in advance Steve for all of the hard work you've put in to this awesome event. Looking forward to a week of Z'z and the drive to Helen!

My attendance is questionable now that a "bucket list" item has come up. Houseboat trip to Knoxville for Bama vs Vols game. 

It's a tough decision for because 1. reservations are made already, 2. I want to shake hands with some guys I have great respect for but have yet to meet, 3. three couples on a two bedroom boat for four days (three girls on a boat with one bathroom),  4. three drunk boat pilots. Run during the daylight anchor down at night. 

Positive side, three drunk best friends going to an Alabama game at Neyland Stadium on a boat.

Decisions, decisions! My life is tough. LOL

Surgery has killed my chance. Not healing as quick as I thought and I can’t work on my car much right now. I’ve actually hired some help to keep things going. It’s killing me that I can’t go with it this close. Very slight chance I’d drive down in another car, but that wouldn’t be as fun.

It's less than 2 hours from the host hotel. https://tinyurl.com/ycd56s74

Blairsville is about an hour from my house.

I guess the Jims will outnumber the Steves.

Sadly Janet and I have to bow out 😞  New job and we just bought 5 acres in the country for a new home so it is a busy time.

Congratulations on the new job. I hope it's less travel than the old one. Just make sure you build a big enough garage for your Zs at the new homestead.

  You know which is the "right" decision. Four days and nights is a loooooooong time on a small boat under the best conditions. Ask yourself, What could possibly go wrong? Now ask yourself what could possibly go right at ZCON. Looking forward to good conversation with you at ZCON.

Go to Knoxville where there are a bunch of UT fans wearing an ugly shade of orange, or go to Atlanta a see a bunch of great Z cars.

WHY do you suggest there is a decision? LOL

So it's a shame that some of you guys won't be able to make it. For those of you who are still on the fence, here's to hoping you fall on the Zcon side!   :beer:
