Default Thank you

I'd like to send out a big thank you to the staff (Zippy_car, Radman, meganuke, mrchill, MrsChill, and TDIinRI), the advisor/planner from TDIFest 2006 (Hamsterdiesel), and IndigoBlueWagon for logistics and assistance with the new registration website.
The hard work and dedication by these people for the last 10 months with the support of the voluteers, sponsours, speakers and vendors enabled us to have a great TDIFest.

Thank you!

Let me add my thanks to the list. I had a great time and even more important, my wife enjoyed the trip and meeting new friends at the event. So it looks like a green light for 2008!

A most enjoyable weekend !!!!

However, reading the above posts, I'm afraid that the Bored Housewives' Club may need to be renamed... possibly even my wife could be persuaded to attend next year...

Three Cheers for a job well done !!!!!!

Kristina and I had a blast. Thanks to all the organizers and volunteers for all of your hard work. We met a lot of great people and will definitely be at next years fest. A special thanks to Chris Hill (Mr. Chill) for diagnosing my cars overboost problem. The car ran great on the way home, and I got my best MPGs yet. 50.9 over 540 miles. WOW!!!!

Yuri.
That was mentioned about a month ago by another member. maybe something to consider for next year.

I'm glad to see so many saying they had a wonderful time. It was tremendously great being able to finally put faces to all those names (even the ones from Mass, Canada - Maryland, Canada, and Quebec USA) . I look forward to seeing you all again at next years fest.. if not sooner!

Special thanks, again to Fred, Julie, and All the Fest staff. Without you, there would be no Fest! Job well done. It's been a pleasure working with you.

Now... where will next years fest be?
