Smile Great Lakes Z Club BBQ - Open Invite 4/30/11 Kensington Park Milford, MI

I didn't realize how dead this section of ZDriver is! Just one thread this year? Well, let's put some life back in it!

Great Lakes Z Club???





Yes! Established in February 2011, the GLZC is growing quickly. Check out www.GreatLakesZClub.com for more information. Be sure to check out the forums link to see more of what's going on!

The Z Club is open to Nissan enthusiasts who drive any generation Nissan Z, Infiniti G, Nissan Skyline or 240SX (S13-15 chassis). All of these platforms are RWD based and are part of Nissan's long racing heritage.

On to this weekend's event! The GLZC Spring BBQ at Kensington Metro Park in Milford, Michigan. We will secure LOT F - Orchard Park (Sledding area) This area has a good parking lot for us to gather, a nice picnic shelter should there be a few drops of rain and public bathrooms. We should be located away from the typical jogger and fisherman traffic. See the map below.

Who: Pretty much anybody with a Z/G/240 or Nissan/Infiniti is invited as long as you are mature, responsible, and cool to hangout with. We will not tolerate burnouts, revving, etc. You do not have to be a member to come, so feel free to come, bring the family, and meet the group to see what we're all about.

How: The picnic will be potluck style. Attendees can either bring a food/drink/utensil or chip in a couple bucks (maybe $5? depending on how much you eat lol). I will update this post with a list of who's bringing what so we don't have a 20 packs of soda or something. We will ask folks to bring something to share. (Hot Dogs w/ Buns and/or frozen burgers & buns are appreciated as usually we get flooded with chips and cokes. ) We will have a couple gas grills going to keep feeding everyone.

Please help us plan the attendance. Please register on our forum and post up if you are going, especially if you plan to bring food. The park does have a grill that is first come first serve so we will be BBQ'ing, I will probably arrive pretty darn early to scope out the spot for us.

Forum: http://greatlakeszclub.com/forums/vi...c.php?f=6&t=44

If you'd rather just send a note saying what you'll bring and how many guests, send an email to: [email protected]

BTW: The Metro Park has a general $5 entry fee at the gate. If you buy the $20 year long pass, you can return as often as you like. We may do a Fall BBQ so just keep that in mind.



Those who wish to donate, the suggested donation to this event is $5 / person. We will use this money to pick up more food if necessary. If you bring something, there is no requirement to donate.

Donors and those who bring something will get an event wrist band. Everyone that brings something to the BBQ, or brings $5 toward the BBQ also gets a raffle ticket to win a custom, personalized 18"x24" full color, high quality, glossy poster of their choice (preferably, their car!). If your guest/significant other wants a chance to win, they too must donate $5 or a food contribution to the club BBQ. Only one ticket per person.

So, don't forget to ask a GLZC staff member for your raffle ticket. We will draw the winner at the BBQ. If you do not already have a high-resolution photo that you would like to use, we can take a picture of your car at the park.

Here is an example of one rolled up - they do flatten out..


The park is one of the nicest metro parks I've been to, with a big lake in the center, you can rent canoes, ride bikes etc. We'll have a football, frisbee and anything other activity (maybe cornhole for you midwesterners).

Bring some lawn chairs and come meet your local Z-Nuts. For anyone who wishes to join the Great Lakes Z Club, I will have applications on site and if you pay on site, you can immediately receive your window stickers.

We will have folks there from 11am to about 4pm. (Maybe longer if the event is still hopping and we have food left to eat.)


After the BBQ ....

Several members want to head out to see the latest Fast and Furious Movie at the Novi Theater off I-96 and Novi Road. Our target show time to be posted later this week. The film premiers this Friday so times are not listed yet.

For the ladies, Vin Diesel and "The Rock" are in the film so you will have something to look at too! See the Preview Below:

The turnout was great! We had nearly 20 cars attending and enough food for 50! Special thanks to Andy (the grillmaster), Rob (GLZC Vice President) Amar (Club Treasurer) and Steve (Club Secretary). We had a 78 280Z, a few Z32's, many 350Z's and a couple 370Z's including a Nismo 370Z.

We had such a good time that we will do this again this season. Keep watching for future events.

Pics from the event.
