Default TDIFest 2012 -Looking for Expressions of Interest

Hi Everyone,

Since TDIFest 2011 is almost upon us, it is never too early to start thinking about TDIFest 2012. Often there is a lot of talk about where TDIFest should be, but the reality is the key is the WHO and not the WHERE.

With that in mind I'm starting the selection process of a little differently this year buy requesting for an "expression of interest" by a group interested in hosting and planning the next TDIFest. I will then work with the groups to see if a viable proposal can be put together.

With this in mind the first thing I'm looking for is an "expression of interest" which is easier to put together and will require the following:
  • At least five(5) TDIClub members who are are willing to work together as a group to hosting the next TDIFest.
  • The location you think would work for the next TDIFest and where at least of the group lives nearby.
  • A few reasons why this location would be a good fit

Given that a perfect opportunity to network with TDIFest organizers is coming next week at TDIFest 2011, I am asking that these expressions of interest be submitted by September 1st. If one or more of your group is present at TDIFest 2011, we can use this opportunity to network with some previous organizers to your group put together a good proposal.

After that the next step will be to put together an official proposal and send it to me. I will then select the next group and location from the submitted proposals. For details on what is required for the proposals, please check out last years thread on putting together a proposal..

If you have any questions fire me an email or PM and remember the expressions of interest are due by September 1st.

Thanks

Fred who is looking forward to seeing where he might be going next year.

I talked to two of the regional VW clubs leadership, large groups a few years ago to see if they were interested in helping put on a front range TDIfest and got positive response. The only problem was I had trouble getting much local TDIclub membership support.

I have personal experience of being on the Rocky Mountain Dart Ass. board of directors putting on the yearly $15k-18k annual dart tournament in Denver. So I have a good idea of what is involved in doing an event like this.

But unless we can put together a local committee willing to do the work involved in having the fest here it will never get off the ground..........That said, if we can come together ( at least 8-10 of us )and have a couple of exploratory meetings in the Denver area of local TDIclub members I'm there.

I have a really good feeling about this place. MI is one of the states I still need to "conquer" in my TDI. I feel another epic road trip plan brewing...

I agree. Threw feelers out there for Colorado and not much of a response. If you ever get anything going I'd be glad to be on the board.

The sun sets earlier on this coast, so I was probably asleep when that acronym was created.
Can you help identify the location?
Please?
And soon
because all I can think of, and I KNOW it's not correct, is that GRVD signifies the Greater Richmond-Vancouver Dump
