2013 tdifest should be in the classic car capital in canada. chatham Ontario.

we have a classic car exhibit http://www.rmauctions.com/Exhibit/Exhibit.cfm
and if we get enough people signed up we can do a group rate so it will be like 5 dollars a person

there is a hotel with a big parking lot in the back http://retrosuites.com/

How many rooms in the hotel, how many spaces in the parking lot?

It looks like there's just a few suites in the whole facility (and prices on most of them are a bit high for what a fest hotel usually is in), and it's set up mainly as an event facility plus a few suites for on-site guests, with most conference-goers being off-site? Typically, Fest has been held in hotels that have enough space to allow most or all attendees to stay at the host hotel.

If a Chicago Suburb committee forms, I'd be glad to participate.

I talked to a couple of local CO VW clubs and they were interested in helping in a TDIclub gathering. But every time I've tried to get the group of people needed to commit to what is required it always falls through. There are more than enough of us in the Denver area to do this so only time will tell if we ever get together to do this.

So here goes again, If anyone wants to try again to put forward a proposal I"M IN!!

We are waiting to do a follow-up conference call with Fred on the 24th to determine how to proceed with 2013. There are a few options on the table that may make getting something going easier for you local folks.

The hotel asked if we wanted to book space for next year!

The Hyatt at Dulles Airport keeps calling me, too.

We're just such a good group. I bet hotels in NJ don't look forward to Waterfest every July

A Fest in Ocean City, MD would be cool too. Been there once for H2Oi.

Hotels in either Ocean City, MD, or Englishtown, NJ are probably terrified of anything that has anything to do with VW.

You should join us for the Auto Show GTG in mid-January.

I think we'll be staying at the Marriott again unless we find someplace closer to Detroit - I'm a big fan of Ypsi though.
