Default Hotel/Fest Location finalised!

Hi all,

I know that you have all been awaiting to know where exactly in Montreal the fest will be held. This year's host hotel is:

Holiday Inn Pointe Claire (Montreal-Aeroport)
6700 Trans Canada Hwy
Pointe Claire, QC H9R 1C2
http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/h/d/hi/...questid=458200

There will be a separate thread on room rates, reservation process, etc.

TDI Fest begins with a Meet and Greet Friday evening on Aug. 31, 2007 and ends with the Awards Banquet on Sunday evening on Sept. 2, 2007.

There will be more info on the weekend agenda posted once Registration opens in the comming few weeks. This is just to wet your appetite for now.... =)

That is an exit ramp from the Autoroute 40 service road!! Traffic in the area is not....light. So, take care, and realise that you are a guest in the country and province!!

Though, you will notice that the parking lot is very large. There will be a SLOW SPEED driving skills course. But, don't do it too fast. You hit one cone and you are disqualified (as per the course designer!!)

Yes, Yes, I knew I would catch some slack about posting that. Just kiddin.

So what is this disqualified for hitting one cone? That sounds pretty challenging. From what I remember we had maybe 2 runs out of 30 or so that didn't hit the cones at the Phili fest.

Maybe Nathan was looking at the inner road around the parking lot?

Anybody got connections for a calibrated speed gun or "your speed is..." box?

Yes, so please drive the way the locals do... that means: read the KM/H signs as equalling MPH...

As far as the awards... I think I can safely predict that if there's an award for dirtiest car, I'll win it hands down !!! (Just ask Iggy...)

Looking forward...

Yuri.

Somehow a wet TDI t-shirt contest came to mind. I think we can count on Zippy and Jules, but can we get the rest of the calendar gals involved? SMOG, just think of the photo-ops for the 2008 version!!

....now MY appetite has been whetted

HAHAHAHA... you're funny. Sorry, jake. I'll be too busy running registrations to be in a wet T-shirt contest. But if y'all wanna make that an offical Fest Event, that's up to you! *insert sarcasm here*
