Thursday Night at Zia's

Cocktails at 6 PM. Dinner at 7 PM

Thursday night at Zia's is special - the kickoff to a great weekend, and a chance to reconnect with our SSR friends and meet new ones. It's always exciting to see those colorful trucks rolling in, especially our long distance friends coming for the first time.

Zia's is in a beautiful heritage house in downtown Summerland. They do a great job of catering to our group.

Zias Stonehouse Restaurant, Summerland, British Columbia

I have again secured access to the Catholic Church parking lot across the street from Zia's for our SSRs - no door dings!!!

Route to Zia's

From Penticton, north to Summerland. Drive up the hill, continue on the highway past the first traffic light at Dairy Queen (the traffic light in the flat section several miles out of Summerland doesn't count), get into the left lane as you continue uphill. Left turn at the second light. Landmarks are an Esso station, A & W, Petro Can station, Mac's convenience store. Head south one block. Zia's is a stone building on the left, park in the Church parking lot on the right.

Coming from Kelowna, turn right at the first traffic light, follow directions above.

***Please check the list to see if you are correctly listed as either coming or having other commitments.

For a time, we were way over the available space (over 90 possibly attending), assuming all unconfirmed were coming. After many phone calls, I had a more accurate total, still in the mid-80s.

Special thanks to Kelly and Cyndy for organizing a group to meet at an alternate location.

We typically had between 25 and 28 trucks at the Beach Cruise, which was within the range that Zia's could handle, but 46 trucks plus several friends became logistically impossible for Zia's.

Would you all be so kind to include Mark " jester " and his first :blur: on the list for dinner at Zias? Thank you! :jester
Will do, Mark.

What happened - did your original ID get messed up? Hopefully the administrators can get you up and running again.
