TDI Fest 2015
 
I am new to the TDI world but not new to VWs. I was sad to see that TDI Fest 2014 did not happen. Will there be a TDI Fest 2015? And if not would anyone mind if I take it upon myself to build a TDI event? I am a show promoter and do this for a living.

We certainly hope that there is a TDIFest in 2015. There are a few already working on it, but I have no idea where they are in their planning. What I do know is that we are always looking for help for planning, organizing, and running these fests. It is a lot of work. Your help, and experience will be very much appreciated. I strongly suspect that you will hear from some of the people who have organized past fests or who are working on 2015+ plans. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed.

Have Fun!

Well I would love to take it over!

Alright, I'm just going to put a little vote out there if a location has not been decided. Since I have been a vw owner there has not been a Colorado tdifest or even a Wyoming or NM or AZ tdifest. A rocky mountain region tdifest would be super appreciated!(But especially Colorado :)

Probably not going to happen unless a group steps forward....and from what I have seen from that area not going to happen.......:rolleyes:

Here's the deal with hosting a TDIFest. First, you have to submit an official bid for your proposed year, location, agenda, and group members. Once that is done, Fred and others will review the bid (along with other bids that have been submitted) and decide which one is the best to move forward with.

Coming in and saying "I would love to take it over" is admirable, but it doesn't really mean anything. We need to know what you're really proposing before moving forward with anything.

So, what location are you proposing, what time frame are you proposing, what sort of activities and events would you like to see, what do you have in mind for raising funds, what other budget items are noteworthy, and who else from TDIClub is going to be helping you with your proposed effort?

The same sort of thing applies for the folks who "would love a TDIFest in ______ back yard." There is a little bit more to it than that. ;)

Now, with all of that said and out of the way, we are accepting bids for TDIFest 2016 and beyond. There is lots of information about what goes into a TDIFest in the various forums, and as always, if you have any questions or need clarification, feel free to ask. :)

If you're interested in attending the '15 Fest and/or volunteering, that's awesome, too!

Looks like you need a vendors application if you want to put your business links in your posts , Smooth.

Simply would like to see the event happened and have offered my help. Taking over means no one else seems to be creating this event so I have offered to do so. Since it seems as if you are going to make things difficult then please feel free to continue on with TDI Fest 2015, 2016, etc.

Of course I would. Why would anyone be allowed to have whatever they like in their signature. Appreciate the comments guys but I have not "pushed" myself onto anyone. Nor have I "pushed" my business and/or links. Simply put it out there.

Dirtracr95 January 6th, 2015 13:36

Im pretty sure organization of the event isnt public. Once everything is hammered out the details go public.

smooth is all butt-hurt and packing his bags...good.
when you attempt to intermingle two distinct tribes, inevitably one surely will decline.

VeeDubTDI January 7th, 2015 04:59

I appreciate your offer, smooth.

Look man. I simply offered help. When it was declined then I declined. Not sure where the hatred comes from.

No problem.

The question remains… Is there a 2015 TDIFest in the works? Inquiring minds want to know.

VeeDubTDI January 8th, 2015 15:52

Yes there is.
