Default TDIFest 2012, Where will it be?

All the hand wringing about a fest...

Oh! What will I do with my life if there is no fest next year?!?!?!

quickly followed by
Why does it have to be there?!?! It's too far away!! There are better places than that!!!

So start thinking about where YOU want one to be, what YOU'd like to have happen, and YOU start talking with others to see if YOU as a group want to consider making a bid to host.

You have a bit over 18 months to plan for a 2012 event. or 2013.
It'd be nice to know, at this year's event, that there are competing proposals for next year's.

Kill-joy ...... You engineers really have to take all the fun out of things, especially one of America's/Canada's favorite past-times -------- complaining .

*standing ovation*
Well said, Jon! no one's going to plan it for you. If you want it, you have to make it happen. Let's have this be a huge announcement at this years banquet... "and the winner of the 2012 TDIFest location goes to....."

there have been many fests on the east coast over the years.

*bump* for a 2012 candidate!

Poor Tomo... He can delete his own posts, but he can't delete someone elses post where he's been quoted...

What is the "middle?"

Texas? Wisconsin? Nebraska? Indiana?

Middle of the land mass or middle of the population?

Are you volunteering?

I second that! Attend this year's Fest with an eye towards how it's done and how YOU could do it BACK HOME...then you'll be able to bring it to wherever you want!
