Default MAZOC 2013 [SUNDAY] Caravan to ZDayZ - Register Here!!!

Work In Progress: I'll be adding more to this thread over the coming days. I should have a registration link up and running shortly. This is for the SUNDAY Caravan... there MAY be a second caravan for later in the week if there is another group of Mazoc members that doesn't plan on being at ZDayZ for the full week. If so, I'm going to need a volunteer to lead that Caravan and coordinate the date and time with moi. LMK.

And as some of you vets have probably figured out, I just copy, paste, and modify the cruise thread from the year before every time, so it reads kind of funny.

---------------------

Fellow Mid-A'ers... this is the thread for the SUNDAY caravan to ZDayZ. That's right, a group of us are leaving on Sunday this year instead of Tuesday like we did last year... for a full week in Fontana!

If you are participating in the Caravan down to ZDayZ from the NOVA Starbucks meetup spot, please fill out the following form to register:

Registration Link To Be Added Soon

I'll update this post with the list of participants and will add other Caravan details over the weekend, but for now, get registered!



Quote:
Registered Participants:
1. m4a1mustang (Steve) + Dana - Has radio + extras
2. Sscottfitz (Steve) + empty seat going down, full seat (Deb) on way back home- Has radio + extras
3. aniceh
4. XwChriswX
5. Shadoquad
6. Shado's mom + bro + doggies
Speed Limits!!!
I think I speak for all of us when I say that, as a group, we take pride in knowing that we aren't viewed as four-wheeled hooligans because we respect the law and conduct ourselves in a mature and civilized matter. Be it at our weekly Starbucks meets, our dinner events like GB Annapolis, or any other random events we may have, we always conduct ourselves in a way that reflects positively on the group. This cruise will be no different.

As nice at it might be to fly down Highway 81 at high speed, we will be obeying all posted limits (we average around 5 over) and respecting the rule of law. The highways we will be travelling are very highly policed, and as a group of hot sports cars we will be attracting a lot of attention. So, we'll take it slow and enjoy the drive. 81 is a fast highway, and we'll probably be passed by numerous speeders, but relax and enjoy the scenery (it's a beautiful drive) and we'll all make it to the Resort in one piece!

A few key points to consider (AKA Cruise Rules and Guidelines):
  • Speeds over 80 mph in Virginia are considered reckless driving and the fines are quite high
  • We will maintain a safe following distance between the cars ahead of us (don't ride on anyone's ***)
  • The group will stay in a single line formation in either the right or center lane while cruising. The only time we will use the left lane is when passing. Please don't pass within the group.
  • If you get separated or someone not involved in the cruise gets in line, don't worry about it. Don't drive aggressively to get around them or re-unite with the group. This is what radios are for.
  • If a faster vehicle is approaching to pass the group, the "tail end Charlie" (Sscottfitz) will inform the group.
  • If the group is approaching a slower vehicle the cruise leader (either myself or tooohip) will inform the group.
  • NO AGGRESSIVE DRIVING!!! Have at it on the dragon but not during the caravan.

Lastly, if you aren't willing to adhere to the cruise rules no one is forcing you to cruise with us. If you are planning on driving like a tool we don't want you in our group... plain and simple.

Thanks for your cooperation! And now, on to the details of the cruise:


Caravan Details

Where: We will meet at the Fair Lakes Starbucks (our Saturday meeting spot)

When: Everyone should shoot on arriving between 5:30AM and 5:45 AM on Sunday, May 12th. We will start the Caravan to ZDayZ at approximately 6AM.

The Route: ZDAYZ Caravan Route - Google Maps

I will update this section later with details on planned stops. This is our FOURTH go at this Caravan so I've got a SUPERBLY BRILLIANT handle on it now.

Food/Drink Situation

This section will be updated as it gets closer to event time I am sure. It's open for discussion.

As most of you know, ZDayZ provides dinner for us on Friday/Saturday nights. We're on our own for the rest of the meals. Last year we did most of our eating at Jon's cabin. We all brought our own food to grill on the patio. I suspect it will be the same this year -- we all bring a bunch of food for ourselves and end up sharing because we all brought a sh*t ton of food!

So, if you want to grill, plan on bringing meats, breads, condiments, etc. If yo have a portable grill you are willing to bring PLEASE LET US KNOW!

Also, bring beer. You don't want to not bring beer!!!

Other stuff you probably want to bring

Obviously space is limited in our cars so we need to be very space conscious when we pack. I figured it might be a good idea to bring up some things that you definitely want to bring with you:
  • Fold-out chair(s) - otherwise you'll have no where to sit on the porch!
  • Bug spray (and bear spray if you are worried about that )
  • Flashlight - it gets DARK at night
  • Rain gear... umbrellas, ponchos, whatever
  • A few extra quarts of oil!!! - The VQs have a tendency to burn oil so you want to have a couple-few quarts on hand just in case!
  • Spare tire or tire repair kit
  • Basic/common hand tools to your vehicle just in case you need to do anything mechanical
  • First aid kit
  • Bottled water & snacks to keep in your car

If anyone has anything else that one could easily forget to pack let me know and I'll put it on the list. Of course, if you happen to drive one blue Maxima, space is unlimited.

Keep an eye on this thread, guys, as I'll be updating it frequently!

For those of you joining us from outside of MAZOC:

If you are planning on participating in the caravan but are not from the area and need a place to stay on Monday night, here are some of the hotels nearest to our meeting location:

Hyatt Fair Lakes: Fairfax Hotels- Hyatt Fairfax at Fair Lakes- Northern Virginia Hotel
this one is the closest to the meet location... less than 1/4 mile away.

Residence Inn Fair Lakes: Residence Inn Fairfax VA hotel | Extended stay hotel in Fairfax VA | Fairfax hotel near Dulles Airport
also very close... 2-3 minutes away

The "Zdayz" event is a three-day event over a weekend in May in Fontana Village, NC. It attracts over 500 participants every year, bringing Z's of every generation, along with other fun cars.

We are going down to the resort for an entire week this year, because last year I went down alone for the whole week and had the resort (and those wonderful roads) all to myself for a few days.

Track Days is different. That is circuit driving, HPDE, tracking the Z. And that's also something I would highly recommend at some point. The Z is very composed on the track, although I've heard it gets spikier when you start pushing it to its highest performance limits.

What time do you plan on leaving Fontana on Sunday morning to head to Ashville? I may be interested in coming back some of the way with the group, but I am not leaving VA until Tuesday evening.
