Hi Bob,

More vendor information will be provided soon, including information about tent rentals, tables, and chairs for your booth.

We will be contacting all vendors about TDIFest interest in the coming weeks, initially by email, and then with a follow up phone.

For the time being, you may register for Fest normally. There will be a question about "vendor interest" towards the end of the registration form. If you select yes, that will let us know that you'd like more information.

If there is a Trader Joe's in NVA, they carry fantastic Nürnberger bratwurst in their refrigerated section. It is labeled as "Bavarian Bratwurst" on the packaging.

OT.

One of my favorite things when I was stationed in Nürnberg was stopping at a corner in the Alt Stadt and having 2 bratwurst on a Brötchen with mustard; it was especially good in the winter!

not only are there a few Trader Joe's, but close by, the real deal.

Regrets.....
 
Cheryl and I have discussed this extensively........
We both are facing some health issues, both new and chronic. While we will miss you all madly, we just cannot face the twenty hour drive. We also feel it is better to stay closer to home while we work with our MDs to stabilize our conditions.

Good news. I'm a TDIClub member. I've already met my commitment to help purchase the fest pins, along with the V's and Tom. I've got rafflle/auction items to send y'all, just tell me where.

Y'all can keep the banquet payment. Consider it postage to send me the goodie bag with the T shirts. :). If only I can get someone to stuff it with vendor goodies....;)

Good lunch to the new auctioneer and huckster!

Greetings everyone!

Just a reminder that we have one week left in July. This means that you have one week left to take advantage of our bonus raffle ticket offer by registering before August 1st.

The next deadline following that is August 9th, which is the free t-shirt cutoff. Anyone registering for TDIFest by the end of the day on August 9th will get a free TDIFest t-shirt with their order. :)

That's cool! You should start a thread with some top tips. :)

I would like to spend part of a day driving around some back mountain roads, preferably of the unpaved variety.

Haha! You'll be fine with that beast. 100's of miles of logging roads to show you! I just posted a couple on-road routes for folks as well that are on my favorites list.

Pffft, the logging roads are often in better shape than the 'paved' roads.

Anyone bringing a bicycle to ride on occasion?

Paying at the door is possible, but we would prefer that you register in advance if you plan on coming. Accurate head counts really help us with our organization and preparedness.

You must purchase a TDIClub subscription in order to attend - an Enthusiast level subscription will cover you, one adult guest, and children under the age of 18. Additional adults beyond the one guest will need to purchase their own subscription to attend. Meal events and the group drive to Mt. Washington are separate.

The first post of this thread contains all of the relevant links and information for registering for the event. :)

In order to attend meal events (meet & greet, breakfast, banquet), people will need to register online in advance. If they don't wish to participate in the meals, they can register at the door starting at 5pm on Friday.

Abacus July 31st, 2015 12:18

I will let them know, thanks.

I would like to attend the cruise up Mt. Washington but I plan to drive in on Saturday and was wondering what time and where the meet is for that? I have checked the wiki but it seems to be just one page with no times listed?

VeeDubTDI August 2nd, 2015 20:11

The agenda with exact times will be posted next week. It's a sunset drive, so we will probably leave the hotel around 5:30ish on Saturday afternoon.

Hey Festers, just a quick reminder that the free t-shirt with registration expires at the end of the day on Monday, August 10th. Everyone who is registered before then will receive a free TDIFest t-shirt (upsizes are charged a nominal fee), a $15 value.

Also, our guaranteed hotel room block expires at the end of the day, as well, although it will likely be extended for another week or so. Nonetheless, if you haven't made your hotel reservation yet, you should probably start looking into it! :)

Don't panic - regular registration will continue until the end of August, but our t-shirt order must be submitted this week, hence the deadline. A limited quantity of t-shirts will be available on-site if you happen to miss out on the freebie deal.

jonferns August 10th, 2015 07:34

VeeDubTDI August 13th, 2015 14:58

Well here's a fluke. We didn't actually stop shirt sales on the 10th, so anyone who registered between then and 30 minutes from now will still get a shirt with their registration.

If there are any on-the-fence people, you still have a little bit of time before I run the final report and place the shirt order! :)

TDI fest
 
I live in southern Maine and I was thinking of taking a ride up to Sunday river and taking a walk around and take a look around do I need to register to walk around the venders area. I've only got a couple of hours to spend there.

VeeDubTDI August 13th, 2015 20:51

If you're just checking out the parking lot for one afternoon, that's fine. That said, we certainly would appreciate you registering, as those proceeds go to fund this great site and keep it ad-free. Plus you'll get a goody bag and get to participate in the raffle, silent auction, and attend tech sessions if you register. :)

jfwestgen August 17th, 2015 15:20

Would love to attend as it would be my first one and I live in the area
 
but my Jetta TDI has been out of commission for a couple months now... Will I be ostracized for driving my gas guzzling Tundra??? :( I know, probably not... just wish my Jetta was in a drive-able condition... Would make my first TDIfest that much more special!

Abacus August 17th, 2015 20:17

Definitely not, but putting it in the show area probably won't win you any awards.

NarfBLAST September 8th, 2015 10:05

I see the "TDFEST 2015" Link at the top of the web page is still live and brings you here...

In the MEETS/2015 TDIFest section, there is a thread for pictures. You can post yours there. And the group one from Mt Washington is already there.

It will depend on circumstances. Since my Mom passed away back in March, my sister and I have been working on clearing out her house so it can be put up for sale. Thus, I have not been able to go anywhere other than a day trip to the Bay Area GTG. In August is the annual Flyin' Miata Open House that I'd like to attend with the Miata; if the 2016 Fest is out West somewhere then I might be able to make it. Otherwise driving from California to Colorado and back then driving from California to somewhere on the East Coast and back again a couple of weeks later might be too much.

Hmmm, if the Fest is in Arizona say the Flagstaff/Sedona/Prescott region, I could tie it in with a house hunting trip to Prescott as our next big thing is to downsize, sell our property here in California, and move to Prescott.

VeeDubTDI September 9th, 2015 16:27

Be like bhtooefr and drive your Miata to TDIFest! ;)

romad September 9th, 2015 17:55

At 27 mpg? :D

At least Flagstaff/Sedona would not be far when compared to 3400 miles to Maine this year for me!

You could do that at 15 mpg! Right??

And those East Coasters could all stop at Vegas and DOUBLE their money - some of them could go home with more money in their pockets than when they started, right?

bhtooefr September 10th, 2015 04:57

Keep it under 4000 RPM, and that 27 becomes more like 34+, on a 1.6 liter Miata. ;)

(4000 is when it goes into open loop, and the fuel economy proceeds to go to total crap.)

(4000 is when it goes into open loop, and the fuel economy proceeds to go to total crap.)

Actually when I bought it in July '89 I would get an average of 30 mpg, but when the CARB mandate for RFG came in, we were told it would cause about a 10% hit to mileage. Sure enough I started getting 27/28 mpg. I usually try to keep it between 3000 and 4000 just for the reason you state. Actually it has not been my daily driver since for the last 7 years so I only fill it about every 9 - 11 weeks and it is mainly used locally so my current average is around 25 MPG. Oh, I did get 34.8 MPG tank on a trip back in 2002 for the Northern Exposure event by Ottawa, Canada.

VeeDubTDI October 4th, 2015 13:52

If you attended TDIFest, please check your email (and spam folder) for a post-event survey from Fred. It's important that we get your feedback on this year's event so that we can better serve you in future years. Please tell us what you liked, what you didn't like, and take the time to rate which activities are the most important to you.

Thanks! :)
