General question - I assume Lawson could answer this - geographically, where is the highest concentration of active tdiclub members?

Right here at my keyboard.
Extrapolate one person per 6 square feet into a larger area and that makes me highly dense.



Wait....

Hubby's car club had a convention in Carson City a few years ago, used the Golden West Hotel for the hub, did a day trip to Virginia City on the Virginia City Railway. Carson is also an easy distance from both Reno and Tahoe. Worth looking into, especially given what Labor Day Weekend hotel rates can be in the more touristed areas.

This is a great idea - have you contacted Deegingerkid about this location. She has posted in this thread and is looking for help with a Reno-Tahoe 2017 TDIFest.

I would definitely support the Reno/Tahoe/Carson City area. I hope to eventually move there soon.

There is a total solar eclipse going from Oregon to Nebraska to Tennessee to South Carolina on August 21, 2017. How about a TDI-clipse Fest somewhere on its path? It's a little earlier than usual but just by 2 weeks, and people may be more up for traveling to an event that includes a real-life Dark Side of the Moon.

No, John, you'd just put yourself in danger of being infected with the Zika Virus.

So, you're starting to put together a proposal?

That pretty much sums up most of the US. I'm hoping Texas is part of the Midwest, because I know there are a lot of us TDIclub members out here.

I personally was going to suggest California or Central Texas (probably around Austin) myself. It's been a year since I've been to Reno/Tahoe. Nice area, but it does get cold at night there, given the higher elevation. If Reno is decided, count me in for going next year. Wisconsin was just too far this year.

Midwest is much farther north than Texas. I have suggested Texas in the past...but never seems enough interest. The Tdi member concentration isnt very high per square mile, but is pretty high overall. Especially when factoring in the neighboring states. Getting all those folks to participate...thats the trick.....
