Chicago sounds good to me. I wanted to attend 09, but my wife's a teacher and we couldn't be back in time for the start of school. Chicago would actually be possible for us to attend!

I think something in Atlanta would be cool. I have yet to be to a TDIfest, but I really would love to. But a trip to the Midwest or Northeast is quite a trip, though I don't mind the drive. I'd be willing to help if someone wanted to do it. I don't think I would take the "lead" with it since I've never been to a TDIfest, nor have I organized large events before. But at the same time I will soon be unemployed and have plenty of time on my hands to look for things

What do you guys normally do? Rent out venues? I don't know Atlanta too well, but I do know there is tons to do!

I will start flying CLT (Charlotte,NC) to FRA (Frankfurt) Jan 2010 and would love to sign-up for your tour. I plan to fly International for about
a year before going back to local US.

Lawson,

call me about the Chicago stuff.

I know the area as I lived there for a long time. Also have tried a lot of the nicer hotels you guys would be looking at in the burbs.

Never been to a TDI Fest before. In fact, I just got mine in July and got married the weekend of the DC Fest. Also, it looks like Chicago is going to be pretty promising as next year's locale. BUT... if, in the future, anybody would be interested in bringing TDI Fest to Texas, I'd be willing to work on a Dallas project. Some of my family are Miata enthusiasts and back in May, they had a blast at the Miata conference. Lots of good driving, stayed at the Gaylord, and they were able to spend some time driving laps around Texas Motor Speedway. Sounds like a blast if you ask me. So keep it in mind. Texas.

Default Concentration of TDI's?

Just out of curiousity what state has the highest concentration of TDI's? Would it not make sense to hold the 2010 fest in that state?

No, because while a certain area may have the highest concentration of TDI's, or rather - TDIClubber's, it's not about the concentration. It's about the level of activity among the the club members within that concentration that matters. You could have 1000 TDI'ers in a square mile radius, but if only 10 are active and supportive, then there's no reason to hold a fest there. It's a marketing deal. If you can build it, market it, support it, fund it, etc.... they will come.
