    IN KY VOA FYI Ray Sweers 2nd Annual Fall Color Tour Oct 23 2021 in Elkhart IN

    IN/KY VOA...FYI...Ray Sweers' 2nd Annual "Fall Color Tour" Oct 23, 2021 in Elkhart, IN


    Hello, All:

    I recently received an email from LONG TIME Viper owner/racer Ray Sweers. Many of our "more seasoned" Members not only know Ray but have also been to his LARGE Viper shop for various Viper gatherings, parties, and parades in the past...including testing on the dyno just down the street. Some have also sought his expertise is solving their own Viper's issues, noting that Ray always graciously lends a hand...and he has very knowledgeable technicians in his shop as well. If you have not met this gentleman...NOW is the time as he has a very intriguing plan for this upcoming event. This comes at a perfect time this year given the CONTINUED stress and strain of the COVID-19 situation. Please read Ray's "brief reminder"email found below:


    "Hello Steve:

    Just a heads up that we are planning the 2nd annual Viper gathering for Saturday October 23rd (10:30-4:00). We've got some new surprises in store and as the date draws closer I will be sending out more detail.

    In the meantime please inform our fellow Viper car and truck owners and encourage them to attend. Our goal is to have at least 50 Vipers !

    Thanks,
    Ray Sweers
    M 574/ 215-8777"

    PLEASE SAVE THIS DATE...You won't be disappointed !!!

    ================================================== ================================================== =======


    While there are many more details to be announced (such as his plans for food, music, and possible special parking), please mark your calendar as I assure you this will be well worth your time and effort. For years, Ray has provided friendship to the Viper community and has certainly been the "Viper glue" for owners across Northwest, Indiana as well as Southwestern Michigan, while also drawing folks from the Greater Chicago area. There were at least 27 Vipers present along with Viper Trucks and many other noteworthy vehicles at the 2020 event.

    I can testify FIRST HAND that last year's event was a FANTASTIC SUCCESS.

    IF YOU PLAN to attend, please contact Ray DIRECTLY so that he can make a head count for ordering the food.

    Ray's contact info is:

    Cell 574-215-8777

    Email ray@positroncorp.com

    Finally, "Thanks Ray" for offering this to ALL VIPER OWNERS !!!

    Best regards,

    Steve Fess, Membership and "Special Ops" Coordinator, VOA IN/KY Region, Inc.
