Also it's excellent weather around all US so driving should be enjoyable and very good mpg. I like Texas I think it's true USA, kind people, good food, a lot music, and fast hwy's.

You are aware that the TDIFest is on Labor/Labour Day weekend because that is when these U.S. and Canada have the same holiday?

As for mid-November weather, just about every northern and Rocky Mountain state/province will be having snow storms. And, of course, it is close to the U.S. Thanksgiving holidays.

I'd consider going, but if Seb is going to run away with next season like he did this season, I have little to no interest. Now..if Kimi works miracles with Ferrari or Grosjean kicks some serious ass with Lotus, I'm IN! Matt says if Lewis is having a half decent season count him in too. :D

I'm a few hours north of STL, but i'd be more than happy to help!

Sad news. The hotel booked a couple weddings out from under me. :( Something about email server failure on THEIR part. :confused: A real follow-up phone call would have been.......nice. (I was trying to avoid using the word "professional" -oh darn it I did anyway) My fault I guess for trying not to be annoying and impetuous. :o Suddenly I'm left without the perfect venue. :mad:

I'm now thinking......thinking.......:(

Verizon Wireless ampitheater has a decent size parking lot, are there usually concerts on holidays(specifically labor day)?

Part of the struggle of the fest organization is coping with the set-backs that invariably arise. Those that handle the issues best are those that still make the plan B work better than the fubarred plan A. So that venue would have been perfect? So what? Pick up, move on, work a plan B. How could B be improved to be more like A? Not necessarily perfect, but can it be close enough to A that those in attendance won't care? You might know the difference, but the attendees don't have to know.

No, obviously, as I'm not good at it.

Sounds like they were giving you the run-a-round from day one. You had mentioned to me months ago that they were desperate for business and I now know why. We can always go further out, down 44 maybe? I imagine there are some relatively empty hotels in Eureka. Though the NW area of STL is a pretty nice area. Come to think of it, I don't even think I pass a hotel in my 17 mile commute in the morning.

I hope that a St Louis area meet happens. Most likely will be the only one I would ever be able to attend. Sure can't afford a trip east or west.
