Default TDIFest 2018 planning discussion

The new hotel near my parents' house was interested, and they have a nice-sized assembly room, but no in-house food service, other than the "complimentary breakfast." Food can, however, be brought in.



I've had challenges tracking down the people who will give me room rates, but I am assuming

I'm planning a long trip to burn up vacation days and to get the wanderlust out of my system. A bit over 2k miles in 4 days. Not TDI related, but that's that.

Thumbs up The Bump

Mid August bump.

My wife mentioned to me the other day about whether an upcoming Fest this year is being planned as she had such a great time at last year's. I told her that no plans are made and she seemed disappointed.

It's somewhat of a good thing for us as she is having open heart surgery next week to replace a leaking Mitral valve and would no way be in any condition to make a Fest this year if there was one.

Tony,

I'm glad your wife had a good time at last year's Fest! She certainly looked like she was enjoying herself throughout the weekend.

I wish her well in her surgery next week and a speedy recovery afterward.

Lawson,

Thanks! and I am sure that if there is a Fest in 2018 she will be ready! (I'm hope I will be as I am temporarily lacking a TDI).

I had my open-heart (and yes, Tomo, they found one) surgery a year ago this week. PM me if you want any advice or help. After a year, I am feeling almost normal again. All the best to her for a smooth and swift recovery.

Thanks J_S, we may take you up on that once she is home. The Doc did the replacement using the "keyhole" procedure which is thru the rib cage from her side as her osteoporosis is bad enough to take away the traditional sternum breaking to access her heart. She's in ICU tonight on a breathing machine and I will be there tomorrow as they will try to take her off the machine to get her breathing on her own. Tough day around these parts.

Every city in the U.S. and Canada is in the "running" until someone comes forward with a detailed proposal.

I like this! It gives me a reason to visit the city I will probably retire in.

Careful there is a fine line for the membership to be aware of regarding vendors and Hosting events. You would be advised to read the rules first. This has been a much discussed problem for every fest planning committee.

We had a great fest in PDX in 2010.
