I'd love to go again. Until the border issues that prevent RHD vehicles from entering is lifted I'll have to rely on members pics and stories. :(

I'll be happy to give you some pull from Customs here-don't know that it would help, but I know it wouldn't hurt!

Here is a teaser for you guys-the team has a big bunch of great stuff already worked out, and more yet to finalize! ZCON.ORG should open over the weekend and registration should open shortly thereafter...

The members of The Coastal Z Club Convention Team, and the Z Car Club Association invite you to attend the 24th Annual ZCCA International Convention on Z Island! Together, we have setup a tremendous adventure for our guests. Z Treasure can be found, Treasure can be won, and Treasure can be bought!
A true Resort Experience at less than half the going rate! If you ever wanted to have a true 5 star resort experience at a hookup price-this is it $129 a night for a single, $139 a night for a doublea single at the Westin is normally more than $300 a night!
We have five days of Z immersion planned, from Competition driving events to a driving tour of one of Americas original Thirteen Colonies, we have it all for you and your Z!
Track events are set up to take care of your need for Zpeed, Historic Tour events are set up for your need to explore, and Haunted tours are set up to put the hair on the back of your neck at attention, and we have got your gullet covered too with the cookin' of both a Food Network Television Star, and a restaurant experience from the days of Black Beard, and Treasure Island! If you like Movies, Forrest Gump was among the more than 100 filmed here, as was Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Swamp Thing, Glory, North vs South, The Deep, The Generals Daughter, Forces of Nature, Wild America, and most recently The Last Song.
Ghost tours to raise the hairs on the back of your neck,-don't think I'm serious..try it and you'll see!

History tours for your need to explore, From Colonial plantations to Civil war fortresses, to The Gulfstream 650 Jet factory, Savannah has it!
Southern Comfort food from Savannahs' world renound restaurants(,Including Savannahs' own Food Network Star and 350z Convertible owner-Paula Deen.
Intrigue from Colonial and Pirate and military history, more book, television and movie backdrops than you can shake a stick at, and you'll find all of it woven into the History and Culture that makes up our home, The Most Haunted City in America, and The Hostess city of the South, Savannah, Georgia!


The first picture shows the Convention center across the river to the left-to its right is the Westin-the open area behind the Westin is the track!
The second picture shows a view of Riverstreet from the roof of the Westin with the Ferry crossing the river.
The third picture shows Riverstreet as evening falls as taken from the Hyatt. It also Two River boats-one of which will be taking us on a dinner cruize!
The fourth picture shows a satellite view of the island to give a better view of the distances between the Convention Center, The Westin and the Track! The white Roof on the Island is the Convention Center, the gray area to its right is the Westin, and what looks like a 1 on its side is the track!

Savannah is extremely family Friendly-Our team even has set up Drop off Daycare(6am to 6pm, 7 miles from the Westin-you will need shot records and appropriate supplies $35/day meals included) with Calvary Daycare/Pre-K), and the same daycare facility will provide after hours babysitting for $10/hr in your hotel room so Mom and Dad can venture across the river for a date! Pm me if you want more info!

Registration is still being worked on-event pricing is comparable to the past several years. I will see about posting some event pricing after I get home.

The Buckaneer Region of the SCCA has not finished their plans for us-they keep asking for more time to test their plans...and more time on the track...hmmm!

Track time will depend on how many participants we get, but we have one full day of laps and a full day of autocross-if there is more advance demand, I will see about adding another day-but it will add some cost.

Im not sure about the past events (first time owning a Z). and as long as this isn't the same week as my wedding/hooneymoon or mountain trip I will definitely be there for the track day.

not sure about autocross... I am happy just doing laps. I would love to "race" but i just a N/A soooo

The ZCCA International Z Car Convention is "designed" to move around the country. Clubs like Coastal Z Club volunteer to host the event in their given region. The idea has always been to allow different people across the US access to the event. Yes, there is a bid from the Desert Z club to host next year's convention which puts an event on the western side of the US.

For more information the convention or ZCCA visit zcca.com.

If you're new to the ZCCA conventions, you may not realize that there have been many west-coast based conventions. Next year's will be the 25th (25 years of conventions...).

Location is all based on a club's willingness to host it. If a club in Hawaii wanted to host, it's possible (not sure how I'd ship my car...but you get the point).

We could have several west-coast conventions so long as west-coast clubs would volunteer to support/host the event.
