We could certainly use your help in planning, if your so inclined

Please keep this rolling.

Oh drat, someone leaked a glimpse of the area around the hotel where I'm trying to propose/coordinate the possibilty of this event!



1. The Wildwood Inn: ~100 rooms starting in the $90s for 2 people, of which 17 are sub-$150 suites up to 5 people
2. 2 level parking structure
3. Indigo Joe's: Sports Pub/Restaurant with entrees under $10, discounts for hotel guests, my sandwich was delicious
4. Table 3: A slightly more upscale restaurant
5. Llewelyns Bar and Restaurant
6. a cafe
7. El Maguey Mexican restaurant
8. Starbucks
9. Cold Stone Creamery (Ice Cream)
10. A frozen yogurt place
11. Dierbergs supermarket
12. Walgreens pharmacy
13. 10 screen movie theater
14. A shopping boutique
15. A specialty shop for ladies shoes (to help you guys sell this to your wives and girlfriends)
16. Wildwood City Hall and Police Department

Plus several other retaurants and specialty shops/antiques within a couple miles. Top quality diesel station about 5 miles east.

Don't let VeeDubTDI know about this breech in security, it is not official, and I'm prepared to deny everything you've seen.

This looks like a very promising location - need to work out a few details with the city of Wildwood regarding permits for various things (including parking). The grassy area around the garage could potentially be used for vendor tents.

As Dozenspeed said, this is all very tentative and we're waiting for more information from a few people/entities in order to determine whether or not this is a viable venue.

In the near future, I can share more information on specific roles and responsibilities that need to be filled. Staffing requirements for TDIFest continue to grow because the event itself continues to grow and we want to make sure we have all of our bases covered in order to put on the best show possible. Stay tuned!

You are correct, and there is a nice Holiday Inn down there too in case of possible overflow. Based on the poll, the Wildwood may fill up fast. Not trying to be cocky, but realistic with a contingency.

I haven't done much yet, and if this gets pulled off it'll be mostly VeeDub's doing. I'm just hemorrageing excitement, and anxious to reveal my unique Fest activity.

But thanks to everyone for their encouragement.

Not mostly my doing... you've put more thought and work into this than I have so far... and there is plenty more where that came from.

Also, my schedule this year won't allow me to commit the same amount of time that I have in the past... and I'd like to play a bit more at Fest than I've been able to in the past. Time to pass a few torches around and provide guidance.

I always thought that one of my TDIs would look good in Missouri. Only been there with (what I remember) the 68 Ford Falcon wagon, 72 Ford Torino 356 Cleveland wagon, and 78 diesel Rabbit (and a nondescript rented moving van).

I have kin there, so it could be an excuse for the 1200 mile drive...


I like it.

I'll do my best to ensure you have some freedom for more leisure and fun, and will be disappointed if you don't participate in my main activity.

One thing I'm confident of is, I've got the local area information tour guide thing HANDLED.
