Friday March 20th:

Mid afternoon arrival at Latorretta Lake Resort on Lake Conroe (roughly 60 miles north of Houston).

We will head out on one of our back road Forest runs. We have some great roads out in the country for stretching your Vipers legs!


Following our back roads cruise we'll come back to the Hotel and then have a casual dinner at one of the Houston Viper Club's favorite Lake front Hangouts.

Saturday March 21st! The real Fun Day :D

We have secured a private Vipers only higher speed Autocross, for 15$ a car, put on and run by the Texas A&M Sports Car Club. I have been to many events put on by this group and they are fantastic. I will design the course with them based on the setups we have run there in the past that are fun for Vipers. Tons of parking, and located on a shuttered air base so nothing to damage your car should you spin. Haven't decided yet if this is going to be a fun run type of event or if we will have classes so people can compete for bragging rights, will probably end up being a little of both. We will have timing equipment and loaner helmets.

For lunch we will most likely have a food truck come out track side. This will be the main event of the day and will take up most of our time.

Dinner: Southern Empress Dinner Cruise on lake Conroe

We are working out the details now but we are going to do a private 3 hour dinner cruise on Lake Conroe aboard the Southern Empress

Sunday March 22nd:

This is typically a half day of events for the roundup so that people can get back home. We are still trying to decide exactly what we want to fill that with, most likely a Dyno day, Another back roads cruise, or a Tech Day out at Tomball Dodge.
