September '22 Day Trippin'

Hello Everyone,

We have 9 more days of events planned for September, and we hope you’ll take the opportunity to enjoy some of those! While our ambitious ONVE2022-Niagara Falls event is spread over multiple days, as is Drive Festival, they can also be enjoyed for a single day to fit into your busy weekend schedules!

Let’s go Day Trippin’…

ONVE2022-Niagara Falls, Sept. 16-19, Sponsored by our 4 Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealers!

Friday 9/16 – Join us for dinner at the Keg. Those staying over can check into our host hotel at 4 pm.

Saturday 9/17 – Join our Viper cruise for 9 am, or the Whirlpool Aero Car for 10 am, or Peller Estates Viper photo shoot for 11:20, lunch in Jordan Station for 12:30, dinner at the Table Rock for 6 pm, or the fabulous Currents Power Station Show for 8:15 pm…the important part is to join the fun!

Sunday 9/18 – Join us for your choice of various Niagara Falls attractions we have planned throughout the day, or just lunch at Milestones at noon or dinner at Corso Italian Restaurant at 6 pm! The cars will be parked for the day so feel free to drive your Viper or whatever you like!

Monday 9/19 – We’ll be making brunch plans soon in coordination with those staying over Sunday night, with everyone welcome to join us!

Fall 2022 Events

Who’s up for a local Fall Colours Cruise? Do you have a scenic route in mind that others would enjoy? This is the perfect opportunity for members to get involved by proposing and helping to plan a local cruise. Contact Bruce or your local Area Director…

If anyone would like to join Bruce & Deb on a Haliburton Fall Colours Cruise on Saturday October 1st or 8th, please let Bruce know at

End-of Season Events dates and details will be added to the Events Calendar soon.

And we might even make some Winter plans, including in Florida! Pass on your event suggestions! We know of several members who will be vacationing in Florida during January, February and March, and it would be great to get together for a visit with others down there. Please let Bruce know if you’ll be in Florida this winter and we’ll see if something can be planned!

New Member Introduction

It’s with pleasure that we welcome Dan de Vries from Guelph to our club, the owner of a red 1997 GTS. Dan learned about our club just over a week ago when Jamie Herrington put one of our club windshield promo cards on his Viper while we were doing our Elora Gorge event! We hope to meet Dan at our Niagara event in 2 weeks! Welcome to the VCO Dan!

Final thoughts…It’s been great to see so many of our members this summer, and we hope a few more will be able to join us before the end of the season! Don’t forget to book your ONVE Niagara hotel by tomorrow night and to RSVP soon after if you’ll be joining us. We look forward to see you all soon!

On behalf of your club’s leadership,

Bruce Hadfield
