I'd probably come to a Tahoe/ Reno TDI fest, I've got family in Reno.

I'd definitely come to a TDIFest in South Louisiana. Why don't you put something together?

Because it's birthday week around here. And I should be working that weekend anyways.
In all seriousness I suck at organizing events anyway.
If there is something I can do to help outside of my busy seasons (spring and fall) I'd be happy to.
Edit:
Also I would never recommend a far out planned event here between August 1 and October 1. We have 2 options as far as weather during that period 90+ humidity and temps OR hurricanes. During that time there really isn't much else.
"Winter" is fantastic here, normally it falls on a weekend, but some years it is longer.

Have you ever been to south Louisiana? They bring a whole new meaning to the term 'miserable heat'. Being from Maine, I had no concept of the term before being stationed there in the Army. It was so hot I have no desire to relive that again in my (or any other) lifetime.

The gator was awesome though, they know how to cook.

Yes, I have! Before I caught the boat bug, I was a field engineer and one of my customers was New Orleans Public Service. I maintained the stack emissions control system at one of their generating stations. Yeah it is hot, but the people, food and music make it worthwhile. In my opinion, anyway

You wouldn't find me there on Labor Day. I skipped the Cinci Fest because standing around in a parking lot in 95 degree weather is not my idea of fun. Done enough of that at track days.

Denver, please!

I like the idea of having it somewhere new. Vancouver, Seattle, Calgary, or skip 2016 Labor Day and have it in early 2017 in Austin, Tuscon, Miami, or New Orleans. I know there's been a Fest in Denver but it was before my time. That would be a no-brainer. Santa Barbara? Bozeman? There's lots of options.

If I got some help from other members I think a Green Bay, Wisconsin TDI Fest would be awesome. The weather has cooled down, plenty to see(Lambeau Field, Visit Door County on a tour Cape Cod of the Midwest (Since I live in Door County I'd be more than happy to give people destinations to visit) Bay Beach Park, brewery to visit, and I'm sure If I were to do a little searching there is plenty more to do depending on peoples interest)

If anyone from Wisconsin is able to help me out I think it would be definite possibility

I'd be onboard with this too, since I've been out there for many therapy sessions after my accident and again there's plenty to do out there as well Red Rocks, Broncos Stadium, Pepsi Center, great mountain roads to cruise, etc. I'm sure there is plenty more to do out there

Didn't notice any in Lake Mills back in '06. In fact, I'd say that was still my favorite Fest. Nice drive, beautiful scenery, great people (of course). And I also ended up having a client meeting in Chicago the day after Labor Day, so I spent Labor Day driving to the Iowa border and blasting alongside corn fields at 100 MPH. Then got reimbursed for mileage by my client.
