Default How does one go about attending a TDIFest?

The Meetings/GTG/Regional Discussions section of TDIClub has a list of all of the previous years TDIFests’, the TDIFest Planning section (only visible to those members of the TDIFest committee past and present), and a list of all the regions covered by TDIClub. There you will find a link to the current TDIFest for that year that has all the information that you need to know about that years TDIFest and how to go about attending. Every year TDIFest is held in a different location to allow local members the opportunity to experience and participate in TDIFest. It also allows TDIFest to constantly bring in new elements, especially regionally specific elements of “local flair.”
When TDIFest first started there was no registration fee and thus all the details were arranged through emails and forum postings. In 2004 the first registration fee was introduced and in 2005 a web form was created to help simply the process. In 2007 OSCommerce was introduced to help database registrations to keep better track of things.
While OSCommerce is actually a Shopping Cart for online sales, it has been tweaked to serve the purpose of registrations for TDIFest. It is not perfect, but some tweaks over the years have enabled it to work reasonably well for our purpose. OScommerce has helped TDIFest become more organized and a little more formal.
On the OSCommerce website for TDIFest you’ll find all the information that you need to register your attendance at Fest, make donations to TDIFest, sign up for events, meals, tech sessions, and more. Pricing varies from year-to-year based on TDIFest budgeting needs. The planners try to keep the cost of TDIFest down as low as they can. The website changes every year to reflect the current year’s information. The website address:
