This GTG was held in Detroit for the last 9-10 years as Winterfest.....a 3 day Getaway to attend the Autoshow and was a great time! This is basically a continuation of that Since the Auto Show has now been moved to June! Ipsilanti is a wonderful old small Mid Western town! The Eagle Crest Marriott is a great meeting place! As stated above there will most likely never be a TDI Fest as we know it! Folks who came are now older and have different Preferences!

Brian,
My time-off request was approved.

I, like uberhare, will be sans diesel.

To be fair, that VW LT that uberhare mentioned is a diesel, just not a TDI.

(I'll be sans-diesel though, myself.)

Yep. Call it Summerfest.

Or pull one from Elon’s playbook and call it not-a-TDIFest.

As of right now I'm a "Maybe" for this. Just waiting on an approval for having Sunday off. Since I'm off all the other days...

I'd like to register my interest as a fence-sitter....we shall see what becomes of things. 3 months is a loooong time from now. Hopefully interstate travel won't be restricted.

BTW, the New York show was postponed to August due to COVID-19, after the Geneva show was cancelled entirely right before it opened.

And, apparently two cases have been detected in Michigan. Might want to keep an eye to see if NAIAS gets postponed or cancelled...

please, lets keep this away from BS media hype about the flu.

i think this M2G should be called exactly what it is, TDI Club meetup. its nothing less, nothing more. nothing to do with TDI fest.

It's relevant to whether the larger event associated with this happens or not. I'm not saying anything about the actual disease, just that a lot of events are being cancelled or postponed as part of the response to it, and NAIAS could be one of those.

(And it isn't a flu. Similar symptoms, but not a flu.)
