Alrighty everyone, I'm going to roll the dice and see if I can pull off a decent event. Registration is still a question mark but I'll keep the faith.

So, Datsun Matsuri is back on.

I have a few things to work out before I can open registration again so watch for that on Monday.

Apologies for the drama.

In the mean time, shake the Datsun trees to see if any other Datsun Nuts fall out.

Keep at it Jason.

If it is any inspiration; my engine is sitting on the floor in front of the car with the timing chain tensioner undergoing surgery.

I'm planning on the trip up, but it will be weather permitting. I think that a lot of people are in the same mindset.

Hope to see you next weekend....Aron

Thanks for the heads up. If you know of others who are going to make a late decision, maybe have them post here so at least I'll have a general guestimate of how many may attend so I can plan accordingly.

FYI...the roll in has to be complete by 9:00 (starts at 8).

Ash, hope you can make it. I know the roadster crowd are planning to leave Friday if that means anything.

Ash510, I hope you come to the event. The roadster guys are kicking the 510 guys' butts as far as turn out is concerned.
