It’s that time again for our monthly meeting!
This month we’ll be having our meeting at the Honeytree next Tuesday, July 24th @ 7pm.
George’s Honey Tree is at the intersection of Northwestern Highway, 14 mile and Orchard Lake Roads. It’s in a strip mall that doesn’t have any other tenants in there. Big lot so we can park together without any potential door dings.
Best way to get there from the East Side – 696 to Northwestern, just past 14 mile on the right. If you hit Orchard Lake Rd, you’ve gone too far.
From the South/West – Orchard Lake North just past 14 mile. Turn right into the Mobil gas station. The driveway continues and connects to the strip mall parking lot. You’ll want to drive around the speed humps by darting into the lot as soon as you can.
From the North – Middlebelt South, turn right on 14 mile. Turn Right on Northwestern Hwy, Almost immediately on your right is the lot. (You can take Orchard Lake instead of Middlebelt but the turnaround situation is a bit rediculous at that intersection).
If you’ve never been, they have great Greek food at a reasonable price. They don’t have alcohol but there’s a Champps across the street.
See you then!
It has been way too long since our last communication. We had some ‘password’ issues that were just recently ironed out. Previous attempts at a monthly meeting were abandoned as the email communications could not go out. So – enough with the excuses..
We’re here to announce plans for the next GLZC Picnic/Meet @ Kensington Park. This will be held Saturday 7/7 at Kensington Metro Park, Lot F. Come one come all.
Please reply or respond to the forum post link if you plan to attend.

Our birthday gift to you: Free 2012 Great Lakes Z Club membership to each Z owner that attends the birthday bash. (You will get your member ID card that evening. Does not include decals or magazine subscription. They can be purchased that evening.)
In the next couple weeks, each member will receive a new membership card. For those who just joined and were looking for their card, I apologize for the delay. You will have it soon and I will adjust the expiration date accordingly.
The original concept of the membership cards was noble but not practical. They had to be created online, member photo inserted, copied, pasted, adjusted to fit, printed on a color laser printer, trimmed and layed with the back side image, laminated and then trimmed down again. Oye! I’m tired just thinking about it. The new card are more simple yet still look good. You’ll have to wait to see. 😉

Our first install meet of the year was pretty low key. We had five persons attending with three projects. As luck would have it, the weather would be clear but unbelieveablly hot.
Chris: Z32 front bumper, Glen: G35 F&R struts and springs and Ivan: Z33 Test Pipes
We didn’t get to Glen’s suspension due to lack of time. We owe you one Glen. (Sorry about that.) We grilled burgers & hot dogs and Ivan made a couple pizzas from his store in Romulus. (Awesome!) We had plenty of beer and water to help keep us cool. If the sun was not so intense, we would have had a few things going on at the same time. Looking forward to the next one already!
Thanks to everybody that came out to the monthly meeting last week. We had a great turnout and some visitors even came all the way from Grand Rapids!

For our April meet, we will be combining it with our Spring BBQ on April 30th at Kensington Park
When: Saturday, April 30th start at 11:00am
Where: Kensington Park, Novi (exact lot will be posted the week of the BBQ). 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).
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 bottles of soda or something.
Click here and post on our forums if you want to join and what you’ll bring!
March’s monthly meeting has been decided:
When: Tuesday, March 29th @ 7:00 pm
26054 Novi Road
Novi, MI 48375-1137
We may even see a few Z’s coming out of hibernation! We all saw Brian’s Z at last week’s staff meeting
WARNING: Do not take the the first entrance into the shopping square after you get off I-96 ( I think it’s called Crescent street, it’s the entrance with the street light) as there are TONS of pot holes. I’d recommend taking the 2nd entrance (Crowe Dr).
But still, when driving around right after winter, everyone should all be careful and look out for all the potholes.
