    Fellow Viper Owner,

    It's that time of year again...time for the 7th annual Texas Viper Round Up. The rules are simple, if you have a Viper, you are invited :) Just imagine a caravan of Vipers as far as you can see in front of you and behind you slithering through the Texas Hill Country on some of the best roads around...yes, it is quite the scene! So, schedule time off of work, drop off the kids at the folks place and make sure you bring a camera for this fantastic event! There are a few details that we are holding off till you get here, but the idea is simple. Also, please feel free to forward this onto ANYONE that you know owns a Viper...feel free to also forward them the facebook invite that is listed below (almost 30 folks already have). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eXnASwT0EE

    For those of you who haven't been to one:

    What it basically is: a three day event where Viper owners get together to meet each other, check out various cars/modifications and learn about their cars and fellow owners...all the while enjoying fantastic driving through the Texas Hill Country and partaking in great food[http://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/icon1.png]<http://www.viperalley.com/forum/>and drink [http://www.viperalley.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif]

    Pretty simple...there is NO registration fee, it is open to all Viper owners...just a bunch of us getting together for a good time [http://www.viperalley.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif]

    Now, for the nitty gritty:


    - Date: March 8-10th



    - Location: Texas Hill Country



    - Hotel Information (trailer friendly): Candlewood Suites, 1100 Cottonwood Creek Trail, Cedar Park, TX, (512) 986-4825 Room block will be held till Feb 15th...good parking, great visibility and Cedar Park Police will be keeping an eye on our cars.



    - NO event registration fee :)



    Day 1 March 8th: This is when we all start to arrive at the host hotel and catch our breath and a drink over at Texas Roadhouse (just a walk across the parking lot) starting at 7:00pm and lasting till the last person leaves. Driver's packets to be handed out at hotel...and of course a cool set of round up specific driving music to be handed out as well :)

    Day 2 March 9th: THE DRIVE. Yes that is right, we have quite the drive setup. Twisties, wide straight aways, etc. You name it, it will be on the route! Lunch will be located in the hill country in a spot that most Texans don't even know is a world known location! Lifelong memories will be made on this drive...I guarantee it, just ask the repeat visitors :) We continue the cruising and picture taking and make our way slithering through the hill country back into town where we have a special dinner location picked out that you won't want to miss!!! Get the cameras ready!


    Day 3 March 10th: The race! Yup, time to take your skills and hit the track! Go kart track that is. This is where we put the trash talking and bragging to the test from the day of driving the day before. Here is a link to pass along to your club members so everyone can preregister before they arrive:https://k1austin.clubspeedtiming.com/sp_center/register.aspx At the end of the form they will need to add the event code: #45226. Everyone will still need to check in at the front counter when they arrive to sign an electronic pad to finalize the registration process.


    A big thanks to Ray, Leslie, Ashley and Chris for their help with setting up this event! This will be one to remember!!! :)

    Won't be able to make it, due to being at work :( Can't book the time off as we're short staffed (in fact, looks like for a couple of nights it might just be me, which will suck big time if that's how it plays out!)

    A little of Friday night and Saturday morning parking info. For those of you staying at the candlewood suites they are blocking 22 spots off for the 21 reservations. For all the locals or others coming in just for an event but not staying at the CS they have asked us to park across the street behind Rosa's Mexican. With all the other guest they have staying there; they do not expect any open parking spots for the other 48-50 vipers.

    Come on people you know you want to jump into an electric go-Kart and compete against your fellow Viper family. This is a tournament style event. Everyone gets a practice session and then gets a competition session based on your time. The 8-12 fastest people compete for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies. Go online and register.

    Is there any interest in a Houston caravan to Austin? If so, where and when would you like to gather up?

    Yes; anyone can show for just a specific event. Others have brought their kids on the cruises.
