Default Next GTG in DFW area?

I just spoke with a member who lives very close to me and we were trying to figure out how to get a DFW GTG going.

Some place centraly located to the DFW area would be great like around Arlington so it is fair to everyone.

If anyone has any ideas or would like to get a group to start putting this together I would be very interested.

Sept 26th ----- 4 votes

General GTG / Maintenance---- 2 votes

Dyno / tuning ----------------- 2 vote

Arlington---- 1 vote

Had lots of people drive from Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, Oklahoma to come to The Houston GTG.... getting people to come won't be an issue... Putting it together and picking a good date is the key... stay away from holidays.... I will come to a DFW GTG!! Name the time and place!!

I think we should set a date first and then come up with a location.

Everyone should vote for the date that would be best for them, the date with the most votes gets it.

Keep in mind people need some advance notice to make plans so we should allow plenty of time.

I vote for Saturday September 26th

July is a tough month since a lot of people are on vacation at times. We just had a GTG in Houston in May too. How about late August or mid September (not on Labor Day weekend though)?

Good thought,

I am changing my vote to Saturday September 26th.

Should be much more enjoyable as far as temperatures go also.

Everyone who is interested in attending please vote for the date you want.

This will make it fair for everyone and help bring a larger turn out.

In the original post I will put each date voted for and how many votes.

That way we can keep track of which one is winning.

Also, anyone with ideas as for meeting places chime in and lets get some ideas started.

What will be the main purpose of this GTG? Dyno tests? Doing Rocketchip tunes (set up with Jeff)? Odds and ends (minor repair/maint to our cars)?, etc.

This is important to know as people are not interested in various things (I really don't care to dyno my car as an example).

Plus, if you are planning on local car work with attendees, then a shop location for the GTG is probably a no no! Bartuning in Houston would not allow that due to insurance reasons.

So, before selecting a date and location, some basic criteria and objectives needs to be established.

I am open to any ideas, I just like getting together with fellow TDI owners.

I learn alot and see many ideas for projects on my car.

I might actually do a dyno run if it were available.

At the last dyno run GTG in Ft Worth last year my car had IP problems and I could not run it.


I am looking to make this an event for everyone, thats why I want to vote on dates, events, and location.

Maybe you can contact Steve Glover (mtbr297) in Fort Worth as he has a new repair shop and get a read on him as to where, what, etc.

I am neither interested in chip tuning nor in dyno. I would like to learn more about my car, basic maintenance and trouble shooting and so on. See what other people are doing with their cars and meet other owners!

but thats just me...

I agree, I would enjoy the same thing, I put you down for 1 vote and myself for 1 also.

I am thinking somewhere near arlington would be central to the entire DFW area so I am voting for Arlington area. I live 30 miles or more away but would rather be in a central location if it meant more people to attend.
