Anyone have an idea or heard rumors where VOI 13 will be?
A bit early to be asking. Im guessing the earliest we would hear anything would be towards thenend of this year beginning of next year.
Yes, but I am sworn to secrecy
Actually, they are a ways off from deciding the final venue as there are always details to be worked out.
That's what I heard too. VOI 7 was such a hit, they are going back, plus it is close to the Tail of the Dragon..........................
Looks like the Nashville Super Speedway has a road course.
WAY too early but as I remember Nashville had a huge rain soaked day. Nothing like Vegas.
vegas vegas vegas
The rain has moved out. All clear now.....
Watkins Glen would be amazing...
Watkins Glen is a great idea ! Nice venue Even Carol Shelby would approve
Vegas was great with VOI 9
Although the town is a little different than is was 7? years ago
Please ignore me if this is a stupid question, I'm still kind of new here. Have they ever done one a bit further north? It would be awesome to not have to drive for 3 days to go to one. I've never been to VOI, but it's on my list!
Just had one in Detroit.
Different now? How so? Still no last call, perfect weather, great track and plenty of hookers still. Or are there?
Driving to and from with a large group of Vipers is half the fun.
I can only imagine how fun that must be, I've only ever cruised with 2 or 3 before. It would be pretty exciting to see tons of them together.
It's about an 18 hour drive southeast to Detroit from me here in southern Manitoba, but that VOI location makes perfect sense. I've got a road trip to get some track time in MN coming up again in 2 weeks, and it's tricky even to get a group of guys (not even in Vipers) to drive 6 hours each way for that.
When everyone thinks of Canada, it's usually Toronto or Vancouver area. Not much ever happens right in the middle where I am. I just wondered how far north it has gone in the past.
Get your passports ready.
Inside info says Ontario.
I heard that if VOI 13 does happen in Ontario, that there will be a man wearing this shirt at the boarder ready to weed out red Vipers.
Yes there is nothing like Vegas and that's why nothing should be held there! LOL
Usually around the september time frame right?
Hasn't it been that the chosen venue is opposite side of the country from the previous VOI? Last VOI was East Coast previous was sort of West Coast and before that ..... seems like the Tail of the Dragon area is too close to last VOI, West Coast people would not be happy.
Bwaaaahahahaha OMG. Love it!
Correct. Most likely Midwest to pacific. Somewhere in there.
Interesting factoid. Most people want the VOI's held close to their homes to make the travel more convenient, however after every VOI this forum is flooded with posts on how fantastic a time they had on the drive with organized slithers. Often times the drive to and from the event is an even greater adventure than the event itself.
I spoke to a couple San Diego guys that shipped their cars to Charlotte, and then drove home. While they enjoyed the heck out of racing on the NASCAR oval, driving on the 4 lane dragstrip, and being able to drive the soon to be released Gen V Vipers, the transcontinental trip back home was the part that is burned most vividly into their memories.
While I understand that VOI's have tended to be moved around the regions to experience different parts of this great country, it perhaps is the people that drive the furthest that get the better part of the deal.
I noticed they never give out awards to the people that drive the shortest distance at car events.
I have to agree. Every VOI has been a decent drive. And the drive was half the fun for sure! Something about a road trip is fun, but doing one with multiple vipers....yeah. Bring on a SoCal VOI. Good long drive.
Agreed on the multiple Vipers drive. This was right after a patrol car on the side of the highway turned on his lights and looked ready to pull everyone in the VOI 12 Grand Caravan over. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GB-rzw-5neU
That trip qas a blast!
For those clubs that wish to host a VOI, it is up to their President to float a proposal. Their local knowledge is a tremendous help to the National Club that needs to choose a site.
If your club is active, and has good organizational skills, they can recommend host hotels, tracks and venues for the cruise. VOI's need a hotel that is large enough to handle the attendees, VIP's, Chrysler and SRT employees, vendor space, a venue for memorabilia, a track that is reasonably prices and available for the dates.
This should become a topic at club meetings and events. An exploratory team can be put together, and perhaps your region could be the winner.
This was the first scenic cruise group returning to the hotels, my first time throwing something together with Windows Movie Maker (no sound this time because of general chatter). Would have added the Bon Jovi version of The Boys Are Back In Town to spice it up but at the rate they need for copyright/royalties... nah.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFcOmC8jKZE&feature=youtu.be
I'm hoping somewhere in the Midwest! I really want to drive my car there and be able to attend!
