Viper Club of America would like to invite all Viper Owners to its *new location* National Viper Owners Invitational: VOI 14

“Celebrating 25 years of the Viper!” Mark your calendars for our biggest celebration of the year!

Due to contract issues with Pittsburgh International Race Complex, we were forced to relocate VOI-14.
So we decided to take advantage of the situation and make the event even better.
We hope you will be able to join your fellow Viper Owners as Viper Club of America celebrates the Viper at the National Harbor in Oxon Hill, MD.

VOI-14’s host hotel will be the Gaylord Resort & Convention Center at National Harbor

This spectacular waterfront resort, with a stunning 19-story glass atrium and sweeping views of the Potomac River, features a rejuvenating spa, indoor pool, stateof- the-art fitness center, and unique restaurants and shops.

As a resort guest, you have unlimited use of Gaylord’s transportation on the Harbor Circulator bus to visit all of the nearby restaurants, shops, the Capital Wheel, MGM Casino, and so much more!

Your registration form is attached. The cost includes Friday’s and Saturday’s group events with lunch at each. It also includes Friday night’s group dinner and Saturday night’s banquet, along with some great event memorabilia to be handed out, auctioned off and given away with our 50/50 raffle.
Gaylord Resort room costs are not included with your event registration. You will need to book your room(s) individually by calling 301-965-4000. Follow the prompts to their “group event” reservations desk and let them know that you would like a room(s) under the Viper Club of America block.
