Default Agenda out yet?

I couldn't find an agenda. Is it hidden somewhere or not out yet?

The general agenda will be similar to previous years. A specific agenda has not been published yet because we have not ironed out all of the details. Once we get some confirmation from VW, vendors, and guest speakers, we will put out an official agenda.

I am interested in attending my first TDIFest. Will there be any dyno or quarter mile drags?

GiGGer, I'm trying to get a dyno.

There aren't any 1/4 mile tracks near here... only an 1/8th mile at Old Dominion Speedway (see the Map link in my signature).

I couldn't figure out where to ask this. I've never been to a Fest and will probably register soon.

Will I be able to get my car chipped at TDIFest? Does anything like that go on? or is it more of a show and a vendor thing?

Jeff from Rocketchip will be there all weekend to take care of your chip tuning needs.

There will also be chip tunes available in the auction on Sunday, as well as other vendors who can provide you with tunes.

Sunday is BugOut http://www.bugouts.com/ and there will be loads of VW's drag racing all day. There is also a slalom on a paved oval track. I was hoping to attend TDIFest on Sat and hit BugOut on Sunday.

Any updates on the agenda? I'm new to the TDI world as of Monday, and live in DC. Problem is I have plans to head outta town for Labor Day. I'd like to plan on either leaving late or coming back early depending on what's going down over by Dulles.

DIESEL TRIVIA- For the fest this year we are trying to put together trivia Saturday night from 8PM-9PM. In addition to the trivia we are checking on having a bartender for cocktails(cash bar). Immediately after trivia in the same location will be the movie. It was my understanding lastyear trivia was weak in attendence due to the time it was scheduled. Having the trivia in the evening should provide more attendence and a nice lead in to the movie..........Thanks!

Saturday- 8-9PM Trivia/cocktails

9-11PM Movie

Yes, Thursday night is a dinner at Thai Thai restaurant in Arlington, VA. The address is...

5123 Lee Hwy
Arlington, VA 22207-1603

Get Directions
(703) 533-1919

We'll shoot for a start time of 7:00pm and probably go until about 10:00pm before heading to the hotel for a bit of partying.

If you're going to be in town on Thursday, stop by and have dinner! Everyone is invited.
