Subject: RE: URGENT: Notice to VCA Region Presidents
You know as the other Half of the VCA founders (Jay founded IVR) I suggest that we simply say goodbye because what this has become is a disgusting attempt to use all the years of goodwill and work by many to allow the profiting of a few.
So let me be the first to say:
Dear Viper Club of America,
Please remove me (VCA Co-Founder and past National President) from any future mailings or communications and please do not contact me on any VCA business going forward. My lifetime membership for service should be terminated as THIS is not what I built and I have no interest in being associated with your criminal activities.
Steven J. Ferguson
Co-Founder of Illinois Viper Club
Co-Founder of Viper Club of America
First National Vice President
Past National President.
can -RUNNER or some such powerful programming person prevent the morgue from being "moderated" anymore by anyone "in power", at least until the dust settles (except for violations of posting policies such as personal attacks, foul language, etc.)
I thank Brian and Chris for reaching out to the members (with a link to THIS THREAD) to understand the wishes of the NC members.
I would encourage each and every president to do the same. The VCA has basically been hijacked and the 2 remaining National Officers (and their new appointees) are no longer acting in the best interest of the membership.
With renewals set to go out next month, each region needs a plan. But certainly each region should understand and get all the monies they are owed for current year memberships before taking any other / more formal activity.

OK, so who is going to step up and form a new Viper owners association? Needs to be somebody who has the time and credibility. JT? Just form a simple LLC in your home state. Then offer to help local clubs and do not collect any dues.
If a real group of Viper owners and enthusiasts starts a new national organization that is clean, simple, by the members and for the members, then I think that SRT would consider blessing it at some point. The current national VCA is going down the tubes fast. And before too long they wont have any members anyway.
I will throw $100 into the pot right now to help. Somebody do it and post the Paypal account info. I am sure others will join in to help as well.
I just completely bombed every new thread I could on the VCA site with this message.
I'm sure I'll be banned and the posts deleted pretty quickly, so if anyone else wants to copy and paste and start loading up the site again, have at it.
"To anyone who isn't aware.
LEE HAS NOT AND WILL NOT RESIGN! In fact, he has now removed from office and banned anyone who has been actually having open discussions with anyone else. This includes Randall, Maurice, and probably Tony by the time I write this. He is cleaning house of anyone and everyone who knows his shady dealings, instead of stepping down like he originally said. NOTHING will be changing at the VCA except the fact that the VCA is OVER. Lee has gone completely rogue and is doing everything possible to shut anyone up who knows anything. The problem is, A LOT of NEW information is flowing on the other Viper sites. After these current moves, you can be 100% sure that there are some really bad things that they cannot afford to have known, and the relationship with Chrysler/SRT is 100% dead (I'm sure they have already been made aware of Lee's latest dictator moves).
I URGE YOU TO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL PRESIDENTS IMMEDIATELY AND GET THE FULL STORY (OF WHAT HAS BEEN RECENTLY DONE) AND TELL THEM THAT YOU 100% EXPECT THEM TO WITHDRAW FROM THE VCA AT THIS VERY MOMENT! There are already additional directors and founding VCA officers resigning and cutting ties (and not with very good language to Lee either).
Please check the other sites and see for yourself. If anyone needs to reach me after this, I go by the same user name on the other sites. Something tells me I will not have access to this site within a few minutes of posting this."
