Sorry for the delay in getting this out guys.

We are currently taking bids for TDIFest 2004. If you are interested, please do the following by September 30, 2003:

1) Find a group of people (5ish) to work with you on the planning and implementation. This will help divide up the work, and keep problems from arising should 1 or 2 move away.
2) Get a rough idea of costs, event places, etc
3) Submit a short email to me with details on the people involved and what your plans are


I haven't made my mind up about a dual Fest, but the idea sounds cool. We'll have to see what interested parties have in mind as well.

Thanks,

Fred

How will I keep my streak of fest attendance intact if there are concurrent fests?

I am a new TDI owner. I posted this on another thread, but I am going to throw in my 2 cents in again.I have beed involved with GTG's, nothing to do with VW's or even Car's. I live in King of Prussia, Pa. It has been a great place to hold such events. There is a hotel near by, that seems every week has some group gathering. Valley Forge Park Ridge Sheraton. It's basically a transportation Hub. As you will see down below.

I think a Baltimore/Philly Area would be great. LOL, not to be Boostfull of coming from that area. But Just as an Interstate Access point of view.. Pennsylvania Turnpike I-76. which both sections are feeders to I-70, I-95, I-80, I-78, I-81, I-83. Plus, come on, You can't pass up a Philly Cheesesteak would ya

Oh the the back roads are nice and twisty. and flat out spots too HeeHee.

I am willing to Help organize such an event, even if it were turn out to be just local/regional.

I'll second the proposal for Valley Forge... Traffic isn't great, but that convention center parking lot is huge.

At least one New England group is planning to submit a bid. At present the site area being considered is south east MA or RI.
