A staple of any ZFEST is the panoramic photo commemorating the event, and this year is no exception. Don't miss it!
1:30 PMZedkhana
This is not a high-speed or autocross event. What Zedkhana is . . . you, your car and a passenger (who will be provided) are given a route to drive, stopping and doing tasks along the way. Your Zedkhana will be timed and points given for completing each of the tasks. Prizes for the highest points achieved will be awarded at the Closing Banquet. It is highly recommended you NOT miss this event. Even if you choose not to participate in the tomfoolery, there will be photo opportunities galore, which can be used for blackmail later.
5:00 PMNo host bar at hotel
 ZFEST Awards Buffet - Las Brisas Ballroom (advance reservation only)
Ventura Beach Buffet dinner, awards, silent auction, and raffle drawings for great prizes will be at our hotel. You MUST attend this event to participate in the auction and raffle. We will be talking about what has changed since last year and where ZSCCA is going in 2017 and beyond. We listen to your comments and will keep the awards and speeches to a minimum. We know you want to party . . . and we want you to have a great time!
