Congrats to not only those below, but to all the Zone 3 folk in attendance who made Parade such a cool event. Next year: Palm Springs California!

Some 150 Zone 3 faithful descended upon Boca Raton, FL last week. All were looking for fun with our favorite marque, but some were aiming a little higher with competitive events in mind. Compete they did and many of our own dominated. Please note this information is coming from the attendees that responded to my request and may not be comprehensive of all Zone 3 results.
