Detroit Veterans Day Parade – Nov 7th

MCVO has been invited to participate in the 2021 Detroit Veterans Day Parade

The Metropolitan Detroit Veterans Coalition (MDVC) exists to give veterans a platform to serve their communities.  They seek to inspire patriotism through civic and patriotic events and community initiatives, bringing citizens, our youth, active military and veterans together for a common cause.

The MDVC will be having a Veterans Day Parade on November 7th.  The event will be broadcast/livestreamed so veterans and spectators can watch from the safety of their homes.  Take a moment to view past parades on YouTube to see the many groups who participate, their enthusiasm and how much everyone is enjoying the event!

It is an honor for MCVO to be invited, with space for 15 Vipers, no less!
At this time, the details are being finalized, but we are being asked to present them with our list of interested members.

This is a Viper only event.
You need to signup to let us know, if you’re interested.

Participation is by invitation only and participants will be required to follow the current CDC guidelines.

2021 Fall Tech Day – Nov. 13th

2021 MCVO Fall Tech Day
Featuring our favorite Viper Mechanic, Wil Thorne
Saturday, November 13th, 10am to Noon

Please join us for a relaxed morning where you and your fellow MCVO members can discuss all things Viper and learn something new.

Our host is Wil Thorne and we will be visiting his garage where magic happens. Many of our members have been on the receiving end of Wil’s knowledge and expertise.

The subject of the Tech session will be:
• Discuss in detail viper suspensions, and alignments.
• The extra tools needed and the additional measurements, in order to set up our cars correctly.
• We will touch on some winterizing tips, as well.

Please come with questions or concerns you may be experiencing with your snake, and share them with the group, especially as we prepare them for winter hibernation.

Refreshments will be provided courtesy of MCVO and the event is free to all members.

Please Register ASAP, so we can provide enough refreshments for all.
