Default TDIFest 2015

Good news, everyone! TDIClub is pleased to announce that TDIFest 2015 will be held at the Jordan Grand Hotel, at Sunday River Ski Resort in Newry, Maine, from September 4th to 6th.

TDIFest started in 2000, in Wilmington, NC, when a small group of TDIClub supporters got together to raise funds to keep TDIClub up and running. As TDIClub and TDIFest grew and we worked with a variety of venues all over the US and Canada, we learned that locales have significantly different regulations pertaining to conferences and events. TDIClub encountered insurmountable difficulties while attempting to take TDIFest to St. Louis, Missouri, in 2014. Canceling TDIFest 2014 was a last-resort decision that was not taken lightly. The time that TDIClub core event organizers would have spent planning TDIFest was instead spent developing a plan to ensure the success of TDIFest for future years, and ultimately the continuity of TDIClub.
Among other changes, entry to TDIFest will become a benefit for TDIClub’s financial contributors. For more information about changes coming to TDIClub, including more information about contribution, continue reading here.

TDIFest 2015 will be held at the Jordan Grand Hotel at Sunday River Ski Resort in Newry, Maine, from September 4th to 6th.

After reviewing all viable locations where TDIFest 2015 could be held, we decided to extend our relationship with Boyne resorts and return to Sunday River. Sunday River's Jordan Grand is an excellent fit for TDIFest 2015, given their familiarity with our organization and willingness to go the extra mile to meet our needs, which allows us to limit the amount of venue-specific management needed for this year. Jordan Grand is Sunday River’s newest hotel and offers numerous improvements as compared to the Grand Summit, used for TDIFest 2013 – an even more fantastic view, excellent conference facilities, and an amphitheatre-like parking area which will work well for our needs.

As described in the TDIClub updates announcement, entrance into any TDIFest will be free for any TDIClub member who is a “Contributor” level or higher. Please note that this is just entrance into the event in general and does not include meals or optional events that require additional fees. Individuals who wish to attend TDIFest will be required to first become a “Contributor” to TDIClub, either prior to the event’s start or at the door. On-site contribution will be possible, similar to how event registration has been available at the door at prior TDIFest events. While TDIClub membership will be available at the door, access to meals and any other limited-attendance events (such as the awards banquet and auction) cannot be guaranteed unless purchased by the pre-registration deadline. There are no other methods by which entry into TDIFest can be obtained. More information, including dates, hotel information, and room reservations will soon be available at http://wiki.tdifest.com.

Registration for TDIFest 2015 is currently planned to be available as of June 3, 2015. Details about how to register will be released closer to availability.

I could not be more psyched about this! Since I finally have that weekend off and am somewhat local (a few hours away), I am offering to help in whatever way I can.

Seeing a moose would be awesome... Just not right in front of me in the road! Or my car will end up being parted out at the Fest

Had a great time a few years ago. Hopefully I can squeeze in another work trip to NYC as a midpoint for the trip.

Sounds good. I'll do what I can to help, especially since I was unable to help last time due to work.

Fuel Economy: Is just one piece of the puzzle that is our bottomless appetite for oil. Cars donít have to be consumable. Instead of throwing them away, we can rebuild them, better. We have the technology.

I have a wedding to attend in France on September 6th. I guess I'll be missing this one..

I am pretty sure that one of our Utes will be attending. I'll miss you guys!

The Jordan Hotel site is well laid out. This will be another great Fest.
