Exclamation Need help with 2016 Sturgeon Bay, WI TDIFest

I'm thinking that with some help, a Sturgeon Bay, WI TDIFEST would be possible in 2016, if I could get some help.

I'd be happy to call hotels in the Sturgeon Bay area and see if they would be willing to have TDIFEST at their hotel in 2016. And hopefully figure out some activities for people to do.

If you are interested in helping bring a TDIFEST to the Sturgeon Bay area, let me know and we can see who can help with what. Figure out a plan to make this a reality

Now if only I could get some people in Wisconsin to help.

I think it would be a great location, since it's somewhat centralized.

Chicago would make for another good spot as well.

Can't believe a CHEESEHEAD would suggest a GTG in Bears country.

LaCrosse would be a better 2nd choice. Nice driving along the Mississippi, and we tolerate the Vikings fans better.

At least, make it Lake Geneva or the Dells, and let the Illinois-ances come up to the GTG. Don't make us go down there. Please.

I know it was hard for me to type, but for the convenience of all the Club members it would be an easy place to drive to for a good portion of members.

I agree a La Crosse Fest would another good location. I also really like the idea of a Wisconsin Dells location for TDIFest. That would be something to consider with all the activities that go on in the area. You have largest water park(Noah's Ark), the ducks, the go kart tracks, the Tommy Barlett Show, and plenty more.

Anyway we can make a Wisconsin Fest a reality would be great.

I'd love to see a WI TDIfest. I could possibly help with a La Crosse coordination but know nothing of the area. Green Bay is just too far for me to help with.

Isn't Dells going to be crawling with people on Labor Day weekend? I would be surprised if any hotel would consider partnering with you on that weekend.

Hopefully some more people have your attitude and would be willing to help.

That's probably true for the Dells, but you never know...most families are back at home, since the kids have started school.

I know the Northeast area of Wisconsin the best, since I grew up here and that's why I suggested Green Bay, Plus there are more than enough hotels to choose from, since all the out of town Packer fans need a place to stay.

If we can get a core group to people to help make this a reality would be a lot of fun.

Is that true for WI schools? Most MN public schools start after Labor day.

I'd be interested in helping in some way. I live close to the place that holds Country Thunder in Wisconsin, It's a huge, open area that would be great for something like this, with lots of room for campers and RV's, as well. By huge, I'm talking multiple acres of open area.

Where is Country Thunder located exactly?

Another thing you gotta think about is, what is there to do in the area?

With people interested in helping, we need to narrow down the location of the Wisconsin TDIFEST.

Obviously my vote is still with Green Bay; )

It need to be at a hotel with a convention center. They don't work otherwise.

The dells is jammed that weekend, school or not. No deals there. Green Bay is a possibility. Lake Geneva is a no go as the hotels that do have the space are golf destinations and $250+ a night. Lacrosse is nice I'll agree. Lots of great hilly roads if you head south towards Soldiers Grove and Prairie Du Chein.
