    It depends if you are a new member or not (and when you joined). Some questions have come up before with new 2014 members, which is why I bring it up.

    We have sent numerous magazines this year so far, but if you are a new for 2014 member, your first magazine is at the printers awaiting action.

    if you are a 2013 member, you are missing many magazines and need to contact angela at [email protected]

    All mambers (2013 and new 2014 members) will get this upcoming edition.

    Sorry you're having issues, we have found out that bulk mail is not 100% accurate (or quick), Angela can get you your magazines, and double check the address we have for you.We have changed printers for the next one, so perhaps we will have higher accuracy with the fulfillment (fingers crossed).

    What about the magazines for 2014? Are we already two behind? How many will each member receive for this year?

    Isn't there still one more to deliver to 2013 members or subscribers to fulfill the 6 magazines paid commitment for last year? I say that as I actually paid for the magazine subscription as a separate order before rejoining last year? All I have received are the two shipped together issues.

    Hey Dennis - My records show that we have now sent you the Jul/Aug & Sept/Oct issues that went together three times..
    The first time through the printer and twice from our office in Dallas.
    Do you have a different address I can send to?

    Thank you - Angela

    Dennis, thank you for letting me know they arrived. I also let Angela know. Do you think we should use your work address for all future communications?

    A few years ago I had ordered some old Viper Quarterlies to complete my collection. One of the packages sent to me had been opened and the magazines appeared read through as some pages were dog eared. There was a stamp and notice put on the package that the enclosed media had been inspected. I was pretty pissed, but it's all part of a post 911 world I guess.

    all 2013-members will get the 6th issue for 2013 and that it is just waiting for an insert at the printer was said 4 weeks ago. now it's almost june 2014 - nothing received. is this because i left vca for voa or is it still due to other problems as previous posts suggest?

    The subject is not being changesd. Post number 24 is a response to post number 23 by a non member owner. It is merely informational.

    There are seven months left. June through December is seven months. As I understand it, the sixth magazine from last year is also the first magazine for this year. (Please correct this if I am wrong.) There are to be four magazines this year as shown by the posted VCA budget. The posts above indicate that the sixth/first magazine will be coming soon. In the meantime, those who are anxiously waiting for the magazine who have not yet bought a Gen V should do so ASAP to help send the message to Dodge that we want the Viper program to continue. Magazines are great but without sufficient sales, the Viper will not continue. If it does not, both clubs will fade into obscurity and with them, the magazines.

    if bobpantax's understanding in #27 is true that the 6th magazine from last year is also the first magazine for this year, then there would actually be just 3 rather than 4 in 2014 - right?

    wondering why no insider simply states facts and firm mailing date(s) related to the vm.

    (btw, motivating people to buy a gen5 is a good but different topic.)

    It would be four for all new members but, like I said, I am not sure of my interpretation. I am basing it on post number 9 above. But it seems reasonable. 2013 Members who did not renew for 2014 are getting their sixth issue by receiving the first designated 2014 issue for free. That seems fair to me.

    The new Viper plug is not intended as a change of subject. Just reality. If the Viper does not continue, interest in the Viper will wane; club membership will drop;and eventually there will not be any magazines at all published by either club. People really need to step up to the plate if they care about the Viper.

    1) The magazines are complete and hit the mail this Friday 6/6, this directly from the printer today.
    2) This is the final magazine for 2013 (yea I know, late). There will be 4 more for 2014. We have done 4 in 6 months before (it's what we've done so far), so there is precedence, and the next magazine is planned out.

    Thanks for your patience. BTW, check out VOI13.com, that's where we've been spending some time...
