Mark your calendars for a SERIOUSLY awesome Zone Rendezvous in Kansas City. Our host location? THE KANSAS SPEEDWAY. This NASCAR track will also be where we can park the Vipers overnight on both Friday and Saturday nights. Guarded parking in the infield garages too. Here is a tentative list of events:

FRIDAY, JUNE 24

You get two choices:

#1. Viper Baseball Night with the The Kansas City T-Bones. Relax in the luxury suites (wet bar, etc.) and catch a professional baseball game in a new stadium. Vipers will have the entire entrance to the ballpark roped off for guarded Viper parking only. We did it last year for our local club and it was a blast.

#2. Want a little more action? We will be drag racing at Heartland Park in Topeka too. This is a track that has GREAT prep and will be rented SOLELY for Vipers. Fast and furious indeed.

SATURDAY, JUNE 25

* THREE autocross venues: Factory-provided SRT-10, factory-provided Neon, and VCA member Vipers. We may even set up a fourth for member Vipers to make sure everybody gets plenty of seat time if they want.

* The Racing Experience NASCAR stock cars on the Speedway. We will have full access to this Nextel Cup group for both ride-alongs AND for driving! Yep, you can take out a full-blown NASCAR stock car for a few laps on the Kansas Speedway - with no pace cars! Pricing is yet to be determined, but it will be VERY low, with ride-alongs working towards that magic mark of "free" (no promises just yet).

* In keeping with the Kansas City charity tradition, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City has arranged with the VCA to hold their annual picnic on the infield from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. During that time, you will get the chance to drive YOUR Viper on the banked tri-oval of the Speedway and give Little Brothers and Little Sisters rides that they will never forget. We will also have access to Victory Lane and a professional photographer throughout, so count on photo ops galore!

* Saturday night provides for great food and entertainment, capped off by various driving awards and recognition. This is one party you won't want to miss.

SUNDAY, JUNE 26

While most folks will probably be departing for home, you will still have access to many of the venues, including The Racing Experience at the Kansas Speedway. Take advantage of our low negotiated rates and spend the day driving 165 mph and enjoying the thrill of the 15º banked turns. Vipers will have access to the Kansas Speedway infield and garages for the entire weekend beginning Friday night.

Our main host hotel will be The Great Wolf Lodge, which includes a world-class indoor water park. This is a gorgeous hotel where every room is a suite that can comfortably sleep 4-8 people. We will have specially negotiated rates for all attendees, so don't start booking just yet. For those looking for more simple accommodations, we will also be using the Hampton Inn Village West as our other host property with specially negotiated discounts for VCA members.

The entire area is tightly packed with things for everybody to enjoy: Cabela's Outdoor Outfitters features a 65,000 gallon aquarium, national Mule Deer museum (with two world record setters on display), a Gun Library, and even an indoor mountain - all free of charge. Also nearby is The Woodlands racetrack (horse and greyhound racing), as well as various casinos (Harrahs, etc.). Of course the Kansas Speedway, CommunityAmerica Ballpark (Kansas City T-Bones), and several famous restaurants (Arthur Bryant's, etc.) are all within that immediate area - less than a mile apart.

This is sure to be a SOLD OUT Zone Rendezvous. You have to be a VCA member (any region) to attend, windbreakers optional. Hell, join up with the NY club (City) or myself in KC to get on the invite list - it will be well worth it and we won't tell your friends... :thumb:
