A Visit with Bob Lutz – Aug. 27th

Our Coordinator, Jon Block, has done it again!

MCVO members have been invited back for a day at the Lutz Farm!

At 9:30 AM, We’ll meet at the “Initial Start Meeting Point”
An email with exact details and updated information will be sent to attendees the week of the event.

~It’s important that you arrive 9:30
Unfortunately, if you miss the departure, you miss the event.

Prior to leaving, the plan is for Vipers to be arranged chronologically, with Gen 1 cars first and staggered starts for each group.
~When you arrive park with the same Gen as your Viper!

We recommend you have enough gas for 120 miles.

At 10:00 AM SHARP, we’ll depart. Our Group Leaders will lead us on a fun, scenic, tour. This leg of the tour is just over 55 miles and 1 hour of pure driving enjoyment.

Around 11:30 AM, we will reach the “Halfway Pit Stop” in Brooklyn, MI.

We’ll allow 30-minutes for the stop then resume the Cruise to the Lutz Farm – with each group staggering their departure.  Make sure you stay with your group since only the Group Leader will have the address to the Farm.

We’re not done –
there will be pizza, salad, beverages and a cake.
All this for only $15 per person!

This is a historic opportunity to meet and greet Bob Lutz.  Jon has offered to bring paint pens, so you can have Bob sign that special “removable” piece on your vehicle.
Plan ahead so you are able to easily take the part off your car.

After lunch, we’ll turn the microphone over to Bob.
If you ever have heard Bob speak, you know this is a MCVO event you don’t want to miss!
There may even be a Q & A session!

We also ask that you bring your own folding chairs for seating and an umbrella for the unpredictable Michigan weather.

Clear your calendar and signup!
We need a reliable headcount in order to buy all the necessary items.
The cutoff for signup is August 20th

This is a Viper only event limited to the MCVO member and one guest.
If you experience issues with your Viper please call Gary Rappaport, prior to arriving.

Please refer to your club email, for full details and the signup Link.

2022 EOI – Snakes in the Hills – Sept. 9-11

Event of Interest
Snakes in the Hills
Hocking Hills, Ohio
September 9th – 11th

The Ohio Viper Club has been working diligently to plan a safe and still entertaining event where they will gather their club and some of the other Viper Regions and owners, together for the weekend.

Combining outdoors activities, that the Hocking Hills provides, we think everyone will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery, awesome winding roads and casual hiking.

With a hotel block arranged in the Logan area we will be close to several dining options and can easily gather the Vipers for some Cruise & Hike runs.

The plan now is to do a Friday evening hosted event, Saturday morning, we are the featured guests at the Hocking Hills Cars & Coffee.  We will head out from there for afternoon cruises, scenery & hiking stops along the way with a stopover for lunch and a group photo at Jimbo’s in South Bloomingville, OH, treated by your hosts from the Ohio Viper Club!

Dinner will be on your own but there are plenty of nearby options around the hotel and I’m sure there will be Viper owners at all of them!  Sunday morning there will be optional Cruise & Hike for those of you with some miles left in you and lunch at The Olde Dutch Restaurant, – they have an awesome selection of American comfort foods with Dessert and Ice Cream.

Cost for this event is $90.00 (plus the Eventbrite fees) per person and will cover your Lunch meals and a very cool Hocking Hills Gift Bag.
