National Viper Event IV - Agenda

We start planning these events 3 years in advance so we can stay ahead of the curve. The entire schedule of activities is below – down to the hour! We’ve providing this over 6 months in advance so that you can fully commit to all of your plans. Many club regions have caravans as well as pre/post trips tied to this event so talk with your president to be sure you’re included in any additional fun if you choose. The caravans driving across the U.S. are half the fun, it’s a great way to make the drive down very safe, entertaining, and memorable. Start your planning now!
