Finish it up and bring it to Sturgeon Bay. I really don't think there is gonna be any more fests just local gtg's. To a certain point, dieselgate has broken the clubs membership back. Sad but true how many times have you read here in the last couple of years........I loved myTDI but the buyback was just to good to pass on. Then all interest in 2009+ TDI's is lost and the older cars are getting long in the tooth or just disappearing due to attrition.

in the midwest for sure, the 00's TDI's are getting fewer each year. Perhaps it is time to think about Audi or BMW, but I'm not one to change easily. S.B. would be fun. It's beautiful out there in the fall.

Sturgeon Bay is getting a Tesla Supercharger soon. It would make a fun trip in a Model 3 and I'd love to catch up with some TDIClub friends. I'll certainly consider coming for a GTG sometime.

Not yet. We can configure any time but we decided to wait because we're considering buying a house. Two offers fell through, so we're back to the drawing board. The Model 3 will come soon, though.

My suggestion is to restructure the TDIfests to something that is less labor intensive to setup. Make it more of an informal gathering with fundraisers of sorts for the site. Pretty much one giant GTG that can still fund the site.

Not going to happen.....the core group basically did that....and no one wanted to step up in areas where they wanted the event so in essence the same few people did the last 5-6 Fests! and they also have lives....now days there is a huge struggle just to have local GTGs.......I spent from 1997 to last year as a die hard except for a couple middle age periods ( 2008 Chevy HHR SS and 2013 Jetta Hybrid) now I
still went to the Fests in those cars! The TDI is still a great thing! But its a different generation of folks....
That said Good Luck!

Tesla still hasn't delivered them yet? Didn't they start taking reservations for it in like 2015? I don't know how they stay in business with a crowd funding business model like that.
