A midwestern TDIFest would make it a lot easier to attend for me at least. And it would serve as reason enough to drive up to see my folks in IL

I'm still simmering with my proposal/plans, I'm trying this new thing called "patience" but I'm not sure for how much longer I can tolerate....

Patience? about 6 weeks is all.
New Year's is traditionally when the "Is 'fest registration open yet?" posts begin.

I was referring to civic permissions on the proposal I'm working on.

100% count me in if it's in STL. I'll even organize a TUL-STL convoy if there's interest.

The only one I could have even remotely attended was Lexington, KY (2011), and at the time I couldn't afford to do it.

You, as well as anyone else considering such an undertaking, have been granted 'permission'. Indeed, the purpose of the 'future fest' threads is to urge any of you to submit a proposal, or several proposals.

I apologize for assuming you knew details/status of where I am at on my proposal. So here's a brief run-down for you and anyone else:

I have found a worthy hotel in price range, in a desirable locale. I've amassed a few volunteers here on the forum to verbally commit their support. I've started designing a unique activity event involving our cars and a sort of exploritory tour of the local flair. Oilhammer is on board as a speaker. I've asked for and aquired VeeDub's expert assistance in the areas of registration coordination. We have contacted the hotel event coordinator.

What WE are awaiting is some permission/answers from her and the city on official permits for our tent/parking activities and things. We've given ample time to get the ball back but now it is time for me to start pushing the cart along again, so I'll be making contact again this week in effort to get some concrete progress. THAT is where I have been trying to exercise patience, which is tough for me.

...and I thought "civic" was a way of working around the automatic language censor on TDIClub.
You see, the word "civil" is something many of us aren't, almost as if it is forbidden. Check out the oil wars, or grease vs. bio vs. petro threads, and you'll understand why civilities appear to be so uncommon.

"Bureaucratic" permissions? Now that can be more difficult than trying to get Fred's factions to agree on something.
Good Luck!

Austin, TX for Formula One event in Nov. Most time F1 is in mid November (Nov 15). It's good place to go during that time a lot music and excellent food. We can stay either Austin or San Antonio (cheaper) or North on Austin. We can visit F1 racing on Sun just buy one day tickets. Also it's excellent weather around all US so driving should be enjoyable and very good mpg. I like Texas I think it's true USA, kind people, good food, a lot music, and fast hwy's.
