Default TDIFest 2010, the location is Portland, OR

This year we had two very strong proposals from Chicago, Il and Portland, Or. With good locations and some experienced individuals behind each proposal it was a very tough decision. In the end I decided to select Portland, Oregon as the location of TDIFest 2010 (September 3-5th) and it will be hosted by the following people:

Lead Organizers: Shalon Fraser (Zippy_car) and Brian Webber (Jetpuf)
Committee Members: Keli McCoy Weltchek (Keli_OR),Philip Schroder (Farfromovin),Pierre Bigras (tothemax),Justin Grow (oldpoopie) and Michele Vasquez (TDI Blue Meenies)


I'll be posting more this week from the proposal and we anticipate having registration up and running in early in the new year once a few more items are tweaked.

As for the Chicago proposal, it was very strong and I hope to see this proposal resubmitted for next year's event. Related to the selection process, I'd like to move the due date for proposal submission forward by about 4 months. This will enable the announcement of the next TDIFest location to take place at the closing dinner at the next TDIFest. For those that have been patiently waiting since Labour Day, you'll have just that much more time to plan.


Congratulations to the this years crew!

Congratulations Portland! You all are going to do a great job. I can't think of a better group of folks to plan a West Coast TDIFest.

Also, thanks to Fred for the invitation to be on the TDIFest Steering Committee. I'm honored to be able to help out in this capacity.

Let there be West Fest!

Thanks Fred! I speak for our group that we are truly honored to be the choice for TDI Fest 2010. I know the Chicago group put together a excellent proposal, and your decision was a tough one.

Thanks, Fred for the announcement. I know it was a tough decision for you.

Thank you to the Chicago group for their support. You are an incredible group of people to have put on the biggest fest in TDIclub history last year, only to turn around with the same energy and enthusiasm to put together another bid this year. well done.

It was a TDIclub first, 2 proposals submitted for 1 fest. We're glad to see that so many of you gave support to both bids. Best of luck to the Chicago group in the future.

We hope that this fest will draw in crowds from all over the western seaboard in both the United States and Canada, as well as many members from all over the country. This is the farthest west that TDIFest has ever been and we believe it is a great opportunity to bring everyone together to show support for TDIclub and the hard work and dedication that Fred and so many other members have put forth to keeping this club going strong! We hope to see many of you there!

Thank You for your continued support! See you in 2010!

Well it's put up or shut up next year for the left coasters that wanted a closer "west fest" Lets see 400 at this one.

I might come. If I can fly 1st class. cattle hearded size seating does my back no favors for 4 1/2 hours. It's not the leg room...it's the width....Big people flying these days! I may be wide but I'm not wide enough to take 2 seats like the people next to me on the last 3 flights! Bent into the seat next to me for 4 hours sucked!

Thank you very much Fred for giving us this opportunity.

I am so looking forward to participating in hosting this Fest and showing people the beauty and hospitality of the great Pacific Northwest.

I need to rest while I can, because I get the feeling that the next 9 months are going to be a blur!!!!

And now I am left debating whether to drive or fly, knowing that getting there is half the fun, as the saying goes, but it would be a three-day drive for me, unless I can get a co-driver. I definitely would have driven alone to a Chicago fest. I'm looking forward to the Fest in Portland, and plan to make the trip.

I'll be driving.
And no matter if I go North or take a southern route I'll have to fight traffic the whole way.
Canada Day or Fourth of July traffic on the way out west, and Veterans Day / Rememberance Day on the way back home.

Wow...so the west it is....there BETTER be a lot of cars... Big states, lots of Tdis. I will have to fly there...I cant take 2 weeks off from work. What is there to do in Portland anyway?(besides the inordinate number of strip clubs). Of course...we will have to visit Rich and Marcel....and my buddy Phillip.

I just found a short-cut!

I-84 west to the end in Wilkes Barre, PA, then the hyperspace wormhole warp jump to re-emerge on I-84 where it resumes just east of Salt Lake City.
This bypasses that cornfield in-between.
