Hello folks. New TDI owner here. I bought my son a 14 Jetta TDi ($11K, 34K miles, CPO Warranty) this past weekend. I also have a Passat non TDI. I have been reading as much as I can to get up to speed on the uniqueness of these great engines along with all the tips and tricks from all the experienced owners in here. I am by profession a corporate event planner and have managed events of all sizes all over the world and I am willing to volunteer and help out as needed to make TDI Fest come back to life. With the new batch of owners/members joining now perhaps this is the right time for 2021 or 2022?

Most miraculous and synchronous post I've ever seen on this site. Excellent!

So what's the deal here? We get somebody stepping up to the plate to help and we go run silent, run deep? Or am I just not realizing that all vested are working behind the scenes to make a 2020 get together happen.



Come on people. I've got the longest distance traveled award already in the bag and I won't be denied.


Oh, and thanks miamipassat for your willingness.

Thank you rhinorear. I know it is hard work to put something like this together. Volunteers are needed for any successful event. With all the TDI's hitting the market now there is a huge opportunity here with a new audience. Hopefully someone who has planned this before will reach out. I am looking to help in any way...

HI,

I'm interested .... Figure out where and when and I'll try to be there.

Let's keep the ball rolling or I guess a meeting for 3 or 4 people it is !

We have members in California, Oregon and Washington State as well as Vancouver, BC who have attended TDIFests, so don't be so sure of that...

In 2013 for Maine Fest, Matt-98AHU and I drove from Santa Maria, CA to Newry, ME. Close friends of ours drove from Vacaville, CA. We are tentatively planning to be at fest in June in Ypsi/Detroit this summer. We would be coming from Vallejo, CA.

Ok, Ok. I will tell you all this. If I see you on the side of road you will be left there until after closing ceremonies. I'll come back and help you after that with award in hand.

My 2015 Jetta SEL was Best in Show the last 2 Fests......Fortunately for you it won’t be in attendance because my Wife won’t let me take it again....but this one won’t have a Show anyway....

Longest distance travelled? There was a bloke from the U.K. that made it to the 2001 'fest in Utah.
Longest distance driven? Maybe that'll be you this year.

My request for the day off was approved so I will be there.

How about Colorado as a location? It's pretty much the center if the united states.
I would be willing to help remotely but there needs to be someone local to the event to check out venue etc.
