June-July Events Requiring Early RSVPs

VCO Service & Parts Directory

Our Chrysler dealer sponsors and their trained Viper Technicians provide outstanding Viper service, and we're now compiling a comprehensive directory of additional types of service providers for everything from paint restoration & detailing to paint protection film installation, wheel repair & refinishing, specialty repairs for carbon fiber, and much more! Please contact Bruce with those providers you've used and have been very pleased with.


We're also hoping to create a comprehensive vendor directory for new, used, rebuilt and aftermarket replacement Viper parts to cover each Viper generation. There's much more available than many realize, with new items coming to market, and we want to connect our members with all those vendors. Please consider assisting with this endeavour. Contact Bruce at vcotracks@gmail.com to help.


Board of Director Elections

Would you like to consider joining our Board of Directors? Nominations for director are open March 1 - April 15. Half of our directors stand for re-election each year at the AGM, and if there are no other nominations they will be automatically re-elected for another 2-year term. Interested members should contact Bruce Hadfield, vcotracks@gmail.com.


Amendments to VCO Articles of Incorporation & Bylaws

New requirements of Ontario's Not-For-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) requires the club to amend these two documents with the approval of membership. The Board has been carefully drafting these amendments to ensure compliance. Specifics and all details will be emailed to current members in April in preparation for a vote at our lunch meeting on May 25th. The Board welcomes the strengthening of these ONCA requirements.


2024 Membership Renewals

If you haven't renewed yet, help us out, save us time, and do it now please. You can quickly renew with a $125 CDN e-transfer to vcotracks@gmail.com. Thank you.


Sponsor Appreciation

These are just some of our very generous 2024 club sponsors and supporters, with all being listed & updated on our sponsor page. Let's please all show them our gratitude! https://www.viperclubofontario.com/copy-of-sponsors  



Please don't forget to prepare your Vipers for another exciting and trouble-free driving season with all required maintenance service, including replacing old tires with very diminished grip...even if they still have lots of tread left! See you all at an event soon!


On behalf of our club directors and sponsors, we thank you all for your support!

Sincerely,

Bruce Hadfield

VCO President


The Viper Club of Ontario provides an unsurpassed Viper ownership & club experience!
