Viper Invasion 2019 East Texas Auto Amp Cycle Show Feb 15 17TH

Region: North Texas

When: Feb 15th 2019 - Feb 17th 2019

Where: Harvey Hall, Tyler TX

Viper has been chosen as the theme of the 2019 East Texas Auto and Cycle Show! Wayne and D'Ann Rauh support this organization and have brought in cars for many years. The organizers asked the North Texas VOA if we could get together enough cars to be the center point, and we said hell yeah we can! So, please plan on joining us for the weekend here in Tyler, Texas. There are two ways to participate. 1) Enter your car in the show. We'll have a prime spot all together in the main room all weekend. Car must be brought in Friday, and cannot be removed until Sunday afternoon so you'd have to spend the weekend with us. I'm going to work on getting us a block of rooms at the Marriott we always use for the Azleway Car Show so check back here for information regarding reserving rooms. If you've never stayed at the Marriott with us, we have a good time in the evening outside having drinks and cigars and some of the best fellowship you've ever seen. 2) Saturday, Feb 16th, we will have our own special Viper only parking section outside. The organizers are also going to be setting up a very basic autocross type course for us to offer spirited rides to those who donate to the East Texas Crisis Center. THIS IS COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY. You do not have to participate in the giving of rides, but it's going to be a ton of fun. There will be local press throughout the weekend as well as television and radio advertisement leading up to the weekend. This show is in it's 29th year and has several thousand attendees.

Wayne and I will also be working on setting up dinners for all of us for those who want to make a weekend of it.

We haven't ironed out all the details yet, but I'll be updating this thread over the next couple of months, so check back here for more information. Also, feel free to comment or ask questions. I have turned on notifications so I should be notified you have commented.

Please see the below information that the East Texas Crisis Center has put out there. I have also attached the registration information. There will be special considerations and gifts for Viper owners, so please let us know if you plan to enter your car before submitting the form.

"The 2019 East Texas Auto & Cycle Show benefiting the East Texas Crisis Center will be celebrating the 29th year. The show will open at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler on Friday, February 15th at 4:00 p.m. and run through Sunday, February 17th. The show brings in vehicles of all makes, from every decade, some very rare, some from car enthusiasts who own vast collections of cars and some from those who have owned or purchased the one “dream car” from their youth."
