Looks like they are sticking to their guns and focusing on zeds. I'm not criticising, unfortunatly they will get complaints either way.

I find it strange that although it is pitched firmly as a "Z" nationals, it is still "open to all Nissan/Datsun Vehicles".

If it is to be a "Z" event, why invite others ? The more cynical might suggest that "all Nissan/Datsun Vehicles" are invited (perhaps tolerated might be a better word) purely to make the event more financially viable ?

There is no way they can win. The 2009 event was made totally open with no focus on Zeds. We received complaints from Zed owners saying it was not focused enough and still received compaints from other nissan and datsun owners saying it was Zed focused.

Guys,

Just as a matter of interest, are we on this site the equivelant of the two old farts in the Muppets who used to sit in the balcony and just watch the world go by?

Why dont we hold an event in Melbourne in 2011 ? and if its a matter of money, well Im going to jump from that balcony and kick things off, I will tip in a $1000 in 2010 before the event to help finance it because I well intend to have my Z finished by then and it would be a privelage to have it along side the many other fine examples ppl are working on here.

Now you can all let the knives start flying saying it would be imposible for us to do so........

John

The bigger the event and the wider the marque of Nissan/Datsun vehicles on show the more interesting is the spectatorship. Dam fine by me!! Lynton 8)

Well said Chris... As long as you have fun, and there are heaps of great looking/sounding Nissan/Datsun cars, that's all I'm interested in seeing. Call it what you want...who cares?

My opinion is that there are not enough Zs to make an event just a Z event. I mean, I spent 2-3 hours at Warwick for the car show this year. If it was only Zs, I would have made the huge drive just for 1 hours worth of viewing. Yeah right! Some of my favourite looking cars at the nationals were actually 1600s/510s.

Yeh i have to agree.
Zeds are my fav datsun nissan but i think a show of all the same model of car might be a bit boring

I owned a datsun 1200 before i had my 240z and was a regular on datsun1200.com they seemed to think all zed drivers are prats. I would like to prove them wrong

Ha it's just down the road!  I love Goulburn, beautiful town - a friend who grew up there calls it God's Country and I have to agree!

This would be a great drive to go on to get there
Im hoping to have car ready for 2010  but not sure its an achievable goal
I dont care if there are other datsuns there as long its not full of "fully sick skylines"

The nationals are only every second year...no nationals in 2010. But you probably weren't aiming for that.

This has just poped up on Ozdat: http://www.ozdat.com...=172184#p172184

The short sightedness of the Sydney Z Club is just amazing...

e-mail recieved:

Z CAR CLUB SYDNEY Inc.
2011 ZCAR NATIONALS update report.

This will be a periodical update report on our progress as we prepare for the event planned for Easter 2011. being staged in Goulburn NSW by the hosts, the ZCAR Club of Sydney.

Progress for the program thus far:

FRIDAY’S WELCOMING;
Preliminary discussions taking place now regarding the Venue, Catering etc. which will be more positive as indication of the number of Participants are better known.

SATURDAY’S CONCOURS; (and breakfast)
We have successfully had Approval with our bookings for the Saturday Concours in the City Square which includes the use of the Central Pack complete with Road Closures, signifying this specific event by the Goulburn City Council.

Deposits have been paid and further regulatory requirements are required as we get closer to the event like proof of separate Public Liability Insurance and the normal assurances of Care, Cleanliness and Behavior etc. because we are guests and the event is open to the Public.

SATURDAY EVENING: TBA

SUNDAY’S RACE DAY;

We have also successfully had Approval with our bookings for the Sunday Race Day at Wakefield Park Raceway, complete with all of the Track Facilities and Safety Equipment and the assurance of the use of their nominated Insurance Coverage for our Participants, Volunteer Marshals and the Public.

Deposits have been paid and also as with the council certain Regulations have to be adhered to along with the Racing Regulations including Conduct of all attending.

SUNDAY’S BUS TOUR;

Preliminary discussions taking place now regarding Tour Venues.

SUNDAY’S PRESENTATION DINNER;

Preliminary discussions taking place regarding Venue, Catering, Shuttle Bus etc. which once again will be booked as we get closer and a better indication of participant numbers are known.
Please Note;

We have enlisted the services of a Goulburn local “Special Events Organizer”

Megan Barnham, whom I worked with developing our 2005 Nationals, and because of her close associations and her reputation in organizing several successful events has placed us in a more advanced position with more achieved earlier than 2005.

Megan as well as our Negotiating Communicator with Council/Wakefield/Venues/Bus tours etc. is totally responsible for all of the Accommodation Bookings! This is most important as the Discount is Paying for our Saturday’s Breakfast at the Concours (by the local Lions Club or similar.)

I am currently constructing a “Critical Path Analysis” to include all important action groups and responsibilities and identifying where volunteers will be invited to assist and lend a hand to make this event more pleasurable for all
We are also sending “Personal Invitations” to all of the Qld. Nationals Entrants/Nisan Datsun Sports Owners Club-Vic./the Sydney Datsun Club/the 300ZX Club Association as well as our Members and have now posted the official notification on our Home Page, please check for Updates.
More to follow, Cheers for now;

Les 260

Pres of Vice.

Hey Lurch,

Everything you said was fine except where you generalise about Z owners with grey hair not wanting to see other Nissan Datsun models.  You young blokes don't have a mortgage on liking other models apart from the Z and I think you will find that quite a few 'grey haired' Z owners would like to see the whole range of Nissan/Datsuns on display (As there was in 2005).

Cheers

Geoff  :)
