I have yet to pay for the food if I want to see the AM guest speaker on Saturday. Can I do that at the fest or how can I do that? Please let me know. In particular, the "9:00 - 11:00 AM: Breakfast with guest speaker (this is a paid event with an enhanced breakfast buffet)"

We will be stopping food sales about a week before the event. You can add your breakfast any time between now and then by going to http://events.tdiclub.com

If you don't go to the speaker breakfast, the hotel will be offering their usual complimentary breakfast (smaller menu selection than what we're getting for Saturday).

All set and thanks for your help.

Heads up - our food deadline is in a couple of days. If you'd like to attend our meet & greet, the speaker breakfast, or the awards banquet, please add it before midnight on Thursday night (August 25th).

Yes, we do! These are tentative, and I may have to make minor adjustments on Monday.

Friday Meet & Greet:

Traditional fish boil includes a soup and salad bar with two soup choices and 20 items for create-your-own salad.

Main course is whitefish, corn cob, potato, and onion done as a large boil.

Dessert is cherry pie.

Alternate meal for those who don't want fish is a pre-plated 1/2 rotisserie Amish-style chicken with apple cinnamon glaze, garlic mashed potatoes, and veggies. If you'd like the alternate meal, we will need to know this in advance. We will be sending more information about this soon.

Saturday Speaker Breakfast:

Full omelette station, Belgian waffle station with local maple syrup, cherry stuffed french toast, biscuits and gravy (this might get substituted for bacon). Scones, oatmeal, fresh fruit, muffins, milk, coffee, tea, and juice.

Sunday Awards Banquet:

Four action stations to include the following...

Comfort food: Cherry and cheddar stuffed pork loin, veggies, bread, and butter
Italian: Selection of pastas with various sauces and add-ons, cooked to order
Slider Bar: Fish, pulled pork BBQ, chicken
Dessert Bar: Selection of cheesecakes, cobblers, and ice cream

With my low carb diet, I could put down lots of brats but no cherries.

I've been to shrimp boils in South Carolina, crawfish boils in Louisiana, and crab boils in Washington State, but this will be my first fish boil. Looked it up on Google and it sounds interesting.

Just a quick note: We are able to extend the food deadline to Sunday night. The hotel is placing the food order on Monday morning, so if you're interested, sign up at http://events.tdiclub.com

The same goes for the Chicago Fireboat on Saturday. You can continue signing up for that through this weekend.

This time next week, we'll be setting up tents at the lodge!
