Default TDI fest newbie question

Hi,

I am thinking of coming to the TDI Fest 2006.

I am 44 years old and I am thinking of bringing my wife and kids as part of our vacation.

Am I too old for this?
You think it will be fun for the wife and kids? (They will probably spend much of the time at the mall anyways )

Basically, I just want to know if people bring their families to this event and how it works out.

TIA

Nope, you aren't too old. Tomo will be there and hes like 80. JK. I don't know the area, but I am sure there would be a lot to do for the rest of the family there. I am sure yours wont be the only family there.

Well the boss (my wife and kids ) gave me the ok, we are going to be there and I am looking forward in meeting you all.

My wife was just worried this was goign to be a meet with a bunch of young guys, cursing, and reving engines. I asked her "what's wrong with reving engines?"

Definitely come on out, and bring the wife and kids. There is a ton of non-car related stuff to do around KOP, and who knows they might enjoy the car-related activities as well. Remember, KOP is not too far from Hershey Park, a great place to take the kids for a day. Also within range is Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom, Six Flags in Jersey, The Phila. Zoo, the Baltimore Aquarium is also just a short drive away, museums, historic parts of philly (Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross house, etc...), there is a ton of stuff for the family that you all will enjoy.

Welcome aboard!

Please don't forget to register!

List your wife & kid's names in your registration, and we'll get them name tags, too (so they won't feel left out!)

Default Made a mistake when registering...

Hi Hamsterdiesel,

I made a mistake when registering:

I only put down for 2 tickets for Meet and Greet, featuring a "Taste of Philly". One for myself and my wife.

But I have 2 kids coming (5 and 8 year old). Is it $16 each as well?

I have not paid with paypal yet, how do I fix this up?

TIA
Ric

And if that doesn't suffice, there is always Washington or New York.

Peter, Julie: do either of you remember if people went up to New Hampshire in 2004 to get electronic goods and other similar items?

Too old? Nah! I'm 47, and a newbie to the TDI scene as you are. I'm a single dad, my kids are mostly grown. The ex left do do her own thing years ago, so I'll be at TDI Fest by myself unless my 18 yr-old son wants to tag along. See you in PA!

Default Echoing guyfromtor's question about registration

To anyone;

Forgot to order a shirt for my son's friend who will be attending.

For making changes, I have a couple of questions:

1 - When filling out the form, should we re-enter everything or just what changed?

2 - If we re-enter everything, how does the difference get calculated?
