February 05, 2004:  Monthly Meet

This will be a milestone for Empire Z in which it will be the first time the group has elected officials.  Rules for running and voting will be that you have attended past meets.  Since The first Thursday of January will fall on the 1st, this is why voting was delayed till February.  After positions are filled, we will finalize out membership into the ZCCA sometime in March.  Benefits and Group Events are still being worked out but should be available in the next few months.


December 5, 2003:  Monthly Meet

Time has come to become organized.  During the December meet, Empire Z finally organized the first list of individuals running for elected positions.   Current positions are still open for entry for February's election.   As of to date, members running for positions are:

President: Chris R.

Vice President: Chuck T.

Secretary: Ricky

Treasurer:  Ron

Sergeant at Arms:  Tony D

 

We had printed up 30 forms for Empire Z membership and all 30 were used.

 

 

 
April  27, 2003:  SCAL MotorSport Auto's Z Show

Empire Z met early Sunday morning, April 27, to caravan down to the MotorSports Auto Show located in the city of Orange.  This has been the third MotorSports Auto show that we have attended since our club formed in July 2000.  We left Denny's with about 20 Z's and met up later with Josh and a few others who secured a spot for Empire Z.  Thanks to Josh for getting down there at 4-5am to save us a space.  When our group reached the show, there was a line of Z's that extended from the entrance and zigzagged through the neighboring streets for about 1.3mile.  Quite a awesome sight.  As we pulled in, Josh had procured us a spot just inside the entrance, almost at the corner.  Turned out to be a great spot if you ask me.  We lined up and a few of us who were obsessed did some dusting and tire cleaning on the Z's before venturing off to look at the other Z's that were there.  It turned out to be a sunny, clear day that went excellent.  One of our members Javier placed 2nd for the modified Z31Class.  After the show we hung out with some L.A. and O.C. county guys and grabbed something to eat at The Block.  Click HERE for Pics

December  02 ,2002:  Empire Z Mountain Cruise

The Cruise began at the Chevron Station located in Highland, CA at 11:00am.  About 11 Z's showed up to make a  mix of 300's 280's, and 240's.  We met up, fueled up, and then headed up the 330 freeway to tackle the SCal mountains before the snow hit for the season.  Originally, the date was set for 11/24/02 but Brad reminded us that the IDRC Finals were on that day so, we pushed the cruise back a week.  After we made it up to Big Bear Village we grabbed a few pizzas at a local Italian dinner (pretty good pizza BTW) and chatted a bit.

Rick then suggested instead of heading down the 38 through Angelus Oaks (which was the original plan), we alter the cruise to drive down the back side of Big Bear on the 38 Highway to the High Desert area.  From there, we drove through  the Lake Silverwood area to the Cajon Pass.  Good suggestion Rick!  All-in-all it was a great cruise and a good day.
