Hey friends,

Over the past couple months the AZ, SoCal, CenCal and NorCal clubs have been working together to plan and execute a run up the PCH. Glad to say we have what we think is a very nice itinerary, here are the details:

We will post registration info on AZ VOA page or email regstration info shortly. Still working on those details. $150 per person registration covers the two dinner events. Registrants book their own hotel and Hearst Castle Tours.

We have to limit this event to VOA members and associate members only I’m afraid, because we have limited seating capacity at the dinner venues. So if you’ve planned to sign up but haven’t gotten that done yet, let this be your motivation. Come on, git ‘er done! Imagine tearing through mountain passes then up the Pacific coast in a string of Vipers 20 to 50 strong. It’s gonna be fun!

We’re looking for a minimum of 25 cars or 50 registrants across all regions. Hope for a strong showing from AZ of course! If you know for sure you are in, please reply back to Peter by email or by text. If you’re a no, or a maybe, let me know that too, so that I can keep the Cali clubs informed about registration rates. Hope to see a bunch of you on this one!
