    I am planning to join you on May 18 -21, I have Three Hills S/S and 1/8 mile June 2 and 3, I would really like to go to Mission on June 19, definitely cannot miss the July 20-22 Edmonton event, have to attend August 18 Mopars at the Mall S/S this year as I missed last year. May not make the Nelson event.
    That should be a busy summer. May not find time to work.

    Ron;

    I really like your style; making decisions early and timely; rather than waiting for other opportunities that may come forward. I look forward to your attendance; you will not be disappointed at any of the events; the Edmonton event will be a real highlight; the Indy Race will be special for me as I attended 2 Molson Indy races in Vancouver and had a ball; and that was before I owned a Viper. I am still working with the Indy event organizer to see if we can get some preferred parking etc.

    Your solid support of the club is much appreciated.

    I can relate to the working 24/7 we all neeed to take a break; you deserve the time off to enjoy!!

    Good health and best wishes.

    I'm committed to attending the May 18-21 event, as well as the Aug event on Vancouver Is. Already booked rooms for both events. Can't wait to meet some fellow enthusiasts and getting out to enjoy my car. If time permits I'm going to try to attend more functions throughout the year.

    Jim, is there a rate code or web code or something for the Island hotels in Aug, or do we need to call in person to book?

    Greg and others;

    The Hotels in Coeur d'Alene Idaho; Parksville and Ucluelet on Vancouver Island have blocks reserved for the Viper Club; you must call the Hotels and just mention the Viper Club to get the preferred rate. All rates have been reduced substantially. If the interst in attending continues to increase I will book additional rooms in the appropriate blocks. If anyone has difficulty in booking please let me know right away.

    Thanks to all for having the confidence in the events; I know you will not be disappointed!! They are all world class resorts.

    Cheers,

    Jim
