It would be really nice if we could have the fest at Denver and maybe we can have the big drag show,,,, where EAST meet the WEST << just a thought.

These are ALL great suggestions... but will only ever be suggestions until a group gets together and does the footwork for a serious proposal.

If you'd like help putting your proposal together/ have questions, etc. please don't hesitate to let me know. I can tell you exactly what info needs to go in one.

Time, Place, venue, team members (about 7 or so), what's there to do in the area, do you have an active core group of TDI'ers in the area, possible pricing for the venue, etc.

It's all talk until someone steps up. :-)

Chattanooga, TN! 70% of the American population live within a day's drive. Maybe get a big group tour of that shiny new VW factory?

It would be easy to figure out which exit to take... Volkswagen Drive off of I-75.

I agree Zippy. Full time Job, Part time TDI wrenching, fest planning..... IT CAN BE DONE! It just takes a dedicated team that can be flexable and pick up work loads as needed.

VWMikel, I'd go to Vegas for sure!

Texas is another option. I'd go just to drag race against Greggles! If he wont come to us, let us go to HIM!!!!!!

I'll be honest I was seriously considering backing the Denver, CO locale...but this sounds like a cool idea.

Plus the Blue Ridge mountains are a short drive away though it can still be in the upper 80s to mid 90s (temperature wise) around here in late summer...with that nasty hazy humidity that the south is hated for.

But there is tons of go-karting, white water rafting, mountain biking, hiking, lakes, and shopping all within a short drive from Chattanooga.

I can do Atlanta to Dallas on a tank. Works for me.

Here is another thought... There are a lot of motor sports parks going in that are like country clubs for car enthusiasts. Membership is too rich for my blood but they may be open to non-member events. They usually have a track and clubhouse facilities. Do any of you know of parks in your areas. Road and track just partnered with one in the southwest for events like drivers schools. I think we have one going in here in Atlanta but it is not complete yet.

One other item I would like to see at a fest is one of the drum dyno guys. Kind of like soot-on-a-trailer.

Default Anywhere but Las Vegas

I went to a convention in Vegas in 2008 - the convention was nice, but I didn't care for the outside temps - boiling during the day - even in late October. Labor day outside would be a killer. I spent the large part indoors except after 9 PM.

Way too expensive for my taste also - I'm glad my company paid for it, I couldn't have afforded it otherwise. Maybe I was in the richie rich part of town ( Venetian/Palazzo ), but it just isn't me.

How about Buffalo, NY ??? Easy to get to, Lancaster Speedway is close by, Niagara Falls, and moderate temps. School doesn't start until after labor day in NY, so that's not an issue. Lots of hotels to choose from, and I'm not opposed to holding it in Niagara Falls either ( although the hotel cost might be a lot there as compared to Buffalo ).

Alaska would be a great road trip. Could come back via Canada 1, However, we would have to put our snow screens back in to filter the skeeters!

Although depending on some responses, I might be 'competing' with you.

I'll be more than happy to help you on the Chattanooga front...I maybe a few hours away, but with the power of the internet makes things easier. I put together the first National ZX2 Meet (a while back) in Atlanta.

So I am sure I can rattle the rocks loose and provide some help to you in getting things setup....now we just need a few others to get the ball rolling.

Two of our planning members were spread out by over 900 miles. Regular conference calls are a must, immediate proximity issues can be overcome.

Correct, I was eight hours away and was one of the main planners for the 09 Fest. It helps to have at least one person 'local' to scope things out and visit sites and have face to face contact with the hotel.
