Michiana Dinner GTG for Tuesday, December 12th will be at 6pm. Location is:

Logan's Roadhouse
4225 N. Main Street
Mishawaka

They are on the southeast corner of the mall that has Kohl's, Old Navy, Petsmart and Borders.

Airwolftdi: As you have not met TDI_Convert or myself yet we will wait by the entrance either outside or inside for you. I figure this would be easier for you then looking for our cars in the lot.

tiesel - Looking forward to meeting you! I will wait by the entrance of Chili's (either inside or outside depending on weather) and will be wearing a black jacket which has USA flag on one sleeve and CAT patch on other sleeve. TDI_Convert will be there too. airwolftdi also hopes to make it - don't have confirmation from him so far.

05_new_jetta - It takes me 2 hours using US 6 from South Bend to the Indiana/Ohio state line. I've been through Van Wert on US 30 - it's about 2 1/2 hours using US 6 / I-65 / I-465 / US 30. Can also take I-65 to US 20 and head west - think that will take about the same amount of time. If you do come I recommend not using US 33 thru Goshen - it looks good on a map thanks to a diagonal alignment but is slow going with all the lights/traffic between US 6 and the US 20 bypass. Use US 6 East and head north on IN 331. Stay on IN 331 (which is Main Street in Mishawaka) to McKinley Avenue - make a left here to head west. The second right is Grape Road - turn right and head north. After you cross Edison Road Gurley-Leep VW/Audi/Mercedes-Benz is on the right side. Furthur north Lowe's is on the right - Chili's is just past there also on the right. If you pass Meijer's (also on the right side) you went too far! I know this trip may be a stretch for you but hope you can join us! Feel free to PM me off list if you want more advice on directions.

TDI_Convert has told me he will be there. We will wait by the entrance either outside or inside for the others. At 6pm we will head inside to grab a table - I'll be wearing a white T-shirt with a VW emblem/"Drivers Wanted" on the front to help others spot us inside. It will be at least a party of three - maybe four or five based on the posts so far. Anybody else in the Michiana area is free to join us too - please post here if you want to come so we can get a big enough table!

That's what I'm trying to do - make this a monthly tradition. Right now since we have so few TDI'ers in the Michiana area that are on the forums plus the dinner GTG idea is still new (first one was in November 2005) it's been a very slow start. This way us local guys will know each other and can assist each other with questions/problems. Hopefully this will lead to local GTG's as well since right now mid-Michigan and central Ohio are the closest GTG's to our area. (The Chicagoland TDI'ers seem to hold their GTG's in southern Wisconsin but there are plans for a Joliet GTG in May 2007 which might become an annual thing.) Am hoping more Michiana TDI'ers will come out of the woodwork this way...

Right now the plan is to have the dinner GTG on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 6pm. Location to be a restaurant in Mishawaka's Grape Road/Main Street shopping/eating corridor. Will be rotating what establishment we go to every month but in time we may settle on one place or a select few on a rotation basis. I will announce the location in this thread about one week ahead of time - as in first week of the month.

All I know is the local VW dealer keeps selling TDI's although I rarely see them around town. I doubt most of the owners are aware of TDIClub unless they only lurk here as opposed to posting.

There is a TDI'er in Fort Wayne who is on here once in a great while. Currently he is stationed in Iraq but hopefully he will post more once finished with his tour of duty. Outside of that I'm unaware of any other TDI'ers from the Fort Wayne/NE Indiana/NW Ohio area. Perhaps some of them will post here and you can get a dinner GTG tradition started someday...

yeah, I need to get cards made up or something inviting people to join the site or atleast look into it, so I can put under wipers when I see them in p-lots and such.
