So that is less than 65 to 100 rooms for each of 3 days. Is this the total at the sponsoring hotel or is it all the neighboring hotels included?

How about actual hotel charges for the Banquet, breakfast and other official events. Would need numbers for these also, if we are going to speak with the San Diego convention/visitor people.

At least about Flagstaff -

Don't think San Diego is going to run out of water by 2016 - quite sure of that actually.

San Diego is a fantastic convention/tourist venue. Lots of large Hotels that can handle events ten or twenty times the size of TDIFest. Would need to research room pricing. Especially for the Labor/Labour Day weekend. San Diego hosts many, many such events and the local convention and visitor authority would be a superior resource for event planning. Again, who is going to do the actual work? I would do my share and a bit more. But who else has done something like this?

I have no problem with San Diego, I spent 2 weeks there every summer of my youth. I would certainly support and help as much as I can, like I said it is all of 5 hours to there from here. My ex-sister-in-law lived at 24th and A street, right under the landing flight path, you could almost touch the landing gear. It is a great location and if someone wanted to take a side trip to Ensinada Mx, it is very close too. Notice that I didn't say Tijuana?...Mark

We've only ever gone with one hotel. If people want to seek alternate lodging arrangements, they're welcome to do that on their own.

As for food, I'll detail all of that information in my PM to you. Expect a $5000-7500 food minimum at the host hotel in order to get use of their conference space for free and the best pricing on rooms. Three meals will cover that pretty easily.

Tahoe is also being thrown around by the Nor-Cal crew. They had the worst ski season on record this year. I see it as likely that some resort up there would take a Labor Day GTG just for the cash flow.

I'll be in touch, Lawson.

I love Tahoe, what a beautiful location and the weather is great at that time of year. You also have the option of losing you diesel fuel money at the gaming tables ...Mark

The northern California group has a good, active core who could put together a great TDIFest, IF they wanted to do it. Tahoe would be a wonderful venue! Reno is very close and could offer better pricing (but not the ambiance Lake Tahoe offers at 6224 feet in the Sierra Nevada mountains.

So, yeah, it's a big state (compared to New England states), but "long way" is relative.


and for clarification: I meant that ANY of those areas would be to my liking, not necessarily ALL in one 'fest.

That is one of the really cool things about AZ, You go through so many different changes in geography in a relatively short distance. In the cooler months, the Sonoran desert is just gorgeous and teams with wildlife of all kinds. If you don't like it where you are, drive an hour and things will change considerably. I have road tripped quite a bit back east and have named the states there ministates. You know what I mean if you have ever driven from Beaumont Texas to El Paso Texas or San Diego, or points further south to Yreka, in the north. I have a terrible habit of watching mile markers, and when you enter Northern California, the first one you see is 799 and you travel all but around 60 of them on your way to AZ...Mark

Is anyone actively looking at the Lake Tahoe area for 2016 TDIFest?

What about a Green Bay, WI Fest as long as the Packers don't have a home game that weekend of Labor Day.

New to club and this string but I live in Portland, OR. Lots of places, Portland International Raceway hosts the All British Field Meet on Labor Day weekend but there are tons of hotels and venues with large parking lots. Of course, there is also east end of town and tons of food carts. Wish I could help plan but I am looking at job hunting at the moment.
