TDIFest 2007
 
As mentioned on Sunday night it is now time to starting thinking about next years TDIFest and we are currently taking bids.

If you are interested, please do the following by October 21, 2006.
Here are some requirments and info that should be figured out before a poposal is submitted by that date.
1) Find a group of people (6 or more) to work with you on the planning and implementation. This will help divide up the work, and keep problems from arising should 1 or 2 move away.
2) Figure out who will be the leader.
3) Get a rough idea of costs, event places, etc
4) Submit a email to me with details on the people involved and what your plans are.
The data has traditionally been the Labour Day (or Labor Day for those in the US) weekend. This could be moved if there is a good enough reason, but remember, no date is ever perfect for everyone. Also remember these plans don't have to be set in stone. If you have something planned for Saturday morning and it has to be Sunday afternoon, that is fine. Things will change. Feel free to post questions here or email me.
Please post any questions you may have as we have all learned a lot from past fests on how to make these things better than ever.
Thanks,
Fred

One other item I'm adding due to the size these fests are becoming is experience with large events. Please include any experience you and your group have with large events.

VW Derf September 27th, 2006 02:15

As you guys are working on these things, feel free to ask me (or the past organizers) questions. It can help in the proposal process.

What is timeframe on decision?
 
Just curious--when is a decision made about where to have the TDI Fest? I've mentioned this trip as a vacation possibility to the family, with generally positive results. There's no way I'm driving to the East Coast, but somewhere in the southwest or midwest is a definite possibility for summer of 08 or 09. (O7's already planned out to the inch.) I'm looking at attending as my best chance to get my 03 Jetta chipped.

If you have read the Thread you would have seen that the deadline on Bids for this years fest is October 21st
The Fest's have been as follows........
2000 Wilmington NC
2001 Park City Utah
2002 Grand Rapids Michigan
2003 Toronto Canada
2004 Boston Area Mass(New England )
2005 Lake Mills Wisconsin
2006 King of Prussia Pa

A group of people need to GTG and organize
The only Group I have seen show an interest so far is Central FL we will see.....

Not to be persnickety, but I did read the thread, and you didn't answer my question. I was curious about when the decision is made each year about the site of the TDI fest for the following year. Speaking personally, it would be nice if some midwesterners (or even west coasters) could get it together to put one on so more of us west of the Mississippi could plan to attend. I know of only 2-3 TDI folk in my county, so we'd be hard-pressed to mount such an effort. Maybe the greater Northwest as a whole?

tomo366 October 19th, 2006 04:56

Sorry! Fred make's the decision shortly after the date listed.......
Based on what I have seen so far not much interest has been expressed so far for the 07 Fest.......We could conceivably not even have one.......

VW Derf October 20th, 2006 04:37

The deadline is drawing very near guys. I've heard a lot of talk, but plans are needed to work with from this. Should there be a group out there that has not contacted me that is interested in hosting next years fest or a little extention is required. PLEASE contact me ASAP.

About bloomin time to bring it WEST!

VW Derf October 21st, 2006 04:03

An extention has been requested to get the last few things together for a group and I have granted that. Please have things together for October 31st, 2006.

Thanks for working on this guys!

Fred

Thanks FRED for the extension date line! (for the GTG)


I am in Colorado, maybe I CAN get it organized here!
There are close to seven TDI owners here, I will contact them ASAP.
I will get back to you, also ASAP.

Don't you...(anyone) think that it WOULD be FANTASTIC to have it in the mountains for ONCE? AND in the middle of the country?

Note to all it is NOT an easy task to do ie doing a FEST.

There are only a small number of TDIers that have been to all of them.

Even fewer have done one and fewer still that have done 2 as organizers/advisors.


Your group better be prepared to work as a team. Also be prepared to spend a lot of time planning and even more time doing.

Good luck!

petger October 23rd, 2006 07:59

I'd love to see one in Colorado, and I'm sure there are many others.

PeterV October 23rd, 2006 09:18

You are slightly late getting out of the box as they say. Every one wants a fest local to themselves. I'll tell you I remember the Park City Fest I the 3 toasted turbos. The Mtns are great but the flat landers should realize the ECU needs some time to adjust.

It is scarey to see 40,000 members looking at whatyou are doing,but only have 200 in attendance.
