ZFEST 2014 was a great success for all of you that attended. State College and the Penn Stater proved to be great hosts for our annual event.

The event went so well that ZFEST 2015 has already been announced and wil be returning to the same venue, 
it will be from  July 29-August 2, 2015. We had so much to do last year and so little time we have added an extra day, so join us on Wednesday this year for even more Z madness

The ZFEST planning committee is already working diligently to put together an event that will satisfy every Z owners soul and the details will be posted here soon.  In the mean time, we suggest that you make your hotel reservations at our 2015 Host hotel, The Penn Stater Conference and Hotel, by going to the Host Hotel tab. Please note that ZFEST 2015 this year runs thru lunch Sunday. Please keep checking back on the site often as it will be updated as events are firmed.  Also, if you are planning a convoy or, would like to join a convoy to this event, check out the convoy page.  There you will find info about which groups are planning their routes and departure times to the event.

We are reviving a feature of Roadster Homecomings past, the Themed event. Like the old Homecomings, Saturday nights dinner will have a theme and this years theme is "Be True To Your School". With this year event taking place on the campus of Penn State it seemed only appropriate to show your school colors. So no matter if you are a Nittany Lion, a Gator, a Terrapin, a Sooner, a Mountaineer or yes even a Buckeye show of those school colors. Aww heck don't just wait for Saturday night show those colors through out ZFEST.

While you are at ZFEST, and in fact, during your trip to and from, we know that you will be taking tons of pictures of your trip adventures. If you would like to share your photos, we can help make that happen.  Also, please post them on your favorite forums along with stories of your adventures.  The clubs digital quarterly magazine, CruZin' NewZ would also love to include your photos and stories in it's next issue and we can help you with that.

As far as what you think is interesting to people, I guarantee that EVERYTHING will be interesting.  For those who attended, it will be a fun trip down memory lane. For those who missed out, it will help them appreciate what they missed. 

And for those of you who would like to join the ZSCCA, its simple and inexpensive.  Just go to where you will find a wealth of information about the club, membership benefits and how to join. Oh, and here's a little secret....current club members will get a discount when they register for ZFEST 2015!

We are really looking forward to seeing all of our friends at ZFEST 2015 and as well as making many new ones. We are more then happy to answer any questions or accept any suggestions that you would like to see happen at ZFEST 2015 or future ZFEST's.  Please feel free to email
