I appreciate the offer, Steve. If I do come down, I'll be sure to cook some food for you guys.

I know this thread has had the important info tossed in it initially, but just to make the announcement fully legit - the schedule of events have officially been posted!
Events | ZDayZ 2012

I'd also like to make a comment if you're on Facebook, make sure you join the Facebook "ZDayZ" group. It's a great way to get to know a few more people that will be coming, and keep up to date on cabins, rooms, and possibly even find a couch or two to crash on in the meantime! (Or in some cases find a normal, loosely used term, person to sleep on your couch)

For those that have been, of course, you already know that you can do as much (or as little) as you like and still have the time of your life. For those of you that are about to experience it for the first time... Four days in the mountains at ZDayZ is literally life altering. Welcome to the dark side.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

-Todd

Holy crap, Ed! Glad to see you still have your Z! I hope you do get to go. You'll be amazed at how things have changed since we were first there.

Probably not since there's a lot going on here with family activities and local car events. Plus, work is getting intense.

If Dirty Harry was here, he would pull out a list of the registrants that we have already then he would look you, the unregistered, straight in the eye and say these words:
“We have almost 450 registrants, we have limited amount of space. You’ve procrastinated until the end and space is about to run out. Your time is about to run out. We’re going to end registration very soon, and you’ll be left out in the cold. So, if you want to wait another day or another week, you have to ask yourself this question…. Do you feel lucky, punk? Well….. do yah?”

OK, so Clint Eastwood couldn’t make an appearance (his fees are ridiculous, btw) so we kinda had to make that part up. But the dilemma is real! We’re closing down pre-registration soon! Don’t get left out! Register now! This year has reached unimaginable attendance and we’re still just under a month away. If you think that ZDayZ 2012 is going to be anything but an epic, record book setting experience that you will tell your kids and grandkids about, you’re sorely mistaken. Record number of enthusiasts, record number of Z/G cars, the Nissan Innovation Station and the unveiling of the Enthusiast 370Z that YOU told Nissan how to build…. The list goes on and on, if you love the Nissan Z/G/Skyline platform and you miss this year, you’re going to kick yourself in the butt for decades to come.

So, I am asking, neigh… I am BEGGING, that if you or a friend hasn’t pre-registered, that you do it now!
REGISTER HERE!!

I would also like to make sure that if you HAVE registered that you make sure you have PAID! You have 10 days from the time you register to pay before we boot you off the list to make room for additional registrants. We’ve been lenient in the past, but we’re about to clean the list. Trust me, we have a long line of people that will show up and try to register on-site. Don’t get left out in the cold, be sure you pay!
You can pay by PayPal or credit card by clicking the link in your registration email. If you have deleted or lost that email, please contact one of us here: http://zdayz.com/contact/

As always, keep it shiny side up…

The time has come for us to do the unthinkable… close pre-registration for the event EARLY. No lie, true story, we’re “for realz.” Over 500 pre-registrants and we still have a week left in April. If your friends haven’t registered or paid, you should definitely scare them into it. The shirt order goes in, the food order goes in, the sponsors are done donating door prizes. That’s it. Last call, your bottle of liquor is put away until next year if you don’t have your shot poured. Noah’s Ark is sailing. Of course we still want you to come HANG OUT with us, but we simply can’t accept any more official registrations.

May 1 – pre-registration will be closed.


Also, May 1 if you haven’t paid (exceptions being those that registered in the last 10 days) your name will tearfully be removed from the list. We’ll miss you, we’ll pour a beer out for you…. But you will not be registered anymore. :(

While we’re at it…. Be sure to “LIKE” us on Facebook! Yes, joining the Facebook world of awesome pages, the ZDayZ “fan page” is here! ZDayZ | Facebook

Yes the Facebook group will still be around, yes we will still disseminate information by any means necessary short of carrier pigeon and a magical owl (Harry Potter isn’t real, and main characters die at the end… sorry) but you should definitely go LIKE the page (ZDayZ | Facebook) and then be sure to tag all of your friends in the old photos we’re uploading! I’m at 2008 right now, and moving closer to present day. Then ol’ Bryan Settle just popped up another half a gig worth of old photos! So keep an eye out for those too after we’ve sorted through and posted them!

Shiny side up…

OK, the ZDayZ staff has had a pow-wow and we're making some adjustments and clarifications!
…. and by staff I mean Bryan.
…. and by pow-wow I mean he was thinking about this over a beer.

We want everyone to be able to enjoy this event, since… well, let’s be honest – it’s a helluva unique experience! But we have to try to have some level of organization to allow us to plan for however many people may show up.

1. ZDayZ is closing pre-registration and car show registration on May 1. So, May 1st, no more car show entries allowed, and no more pre-registrations are going to be accepted. We need time to process shirts, food, space, parking, and well… everything else! And we’re not quite sure how we’re going to fit the car show participants as is, so - if you want a piece of this action you better get in where you fit in! Because car show registration closes for good on Tuesday. (meaning pay up by next Tuesday)

2. That leaves us with late decision makers: Game on for on-site registrations. We want you to join us! Yes, that means we're accepting onsite registrations starting as early as we get there! Shirts will be limited and we’ll accommodate you the best we can. Seating at the dinners will be interesting, so I suggest thinking about tossing a folding camping chair in your truck/hatch! (just kidding… sort of) But when you boil it down we’re one big family, so the more the merrier. So come May 16th, you find out you have that weekend off - a.) start begging for couch or floor space, b.) hightail it all the way to Fontana Village in North Carolina, c.) and we’ll see you in the morning!

Confused yet? Good!
Let’s make this simple:
1. If you haven’t registered by May 1, don’t worry, just show up with cash! (Where you sleep is up to you, ha!) But there is plenty of overflow lodging that’s fairly close, you can read more about it here: Lodging | ZDayZ 2012
2. With the exception of the Car Show (which will be closed permanently May 1st) we encourage you to join us for the apparently epic ZDayZ 2012, May 17-20.
3. Have the time of your life starting May 17th.

Got questions? HOLLA!
-Todd

I hope everyone plays it safe. Looks to be really crowded this year. I've got something in the works for next year.

So jealous that you had little to no traffic. Must have been an early morning run.

I tried once to get a run in the middle of the day, and it only reminded me why I get out of bed so early while on vacation.

Middle of the day = LEO's and slow traffic.
