I checked out the Ypsi Marriott yesterday and it is a great location -- first time I've gotten a chance to look around in person... now to do some paperwork for Fred and then some paperwork for the hotel and then a whole lot more paperwork.

Not official yet... we still have to submit a proposal and get it approved. With that said, there doesn't seem to be any competition for 2012, so chances are pretty good.

OK. I knew for a little bit it seemed MI & NH were in a race. NH seems to have died out.

Last I heard NH decided they couldn't get it organized for 2012 and were looking at 2013 as a possibility.

I'm hoping once I get moved to TN here soon that I can get a group together for a Nashville or Memphis TDIFest planning committee. Maybe some of the individuals that helped organize the Lexington fest can help?

A tdi fest anywhere would be good, a fest in Tn would be awesome. Perfect central location for guys like me on the edges.

Bruce had an interesting idea at Whitbread's GTG this past weekend... how about doing a President's Day GTG somewhere in Florida? Anyone interested in putting something together? I know there's been a lot of discussion about a Florida Fest, but doing something like that on Labor Day weekend sounds pretty brutal.

Ypsilanti would be interesting - close to a major city, close to a major university, close to a hub airport, and for me it is drivable in a day each way. I made the Fowlerville Memorial Day weekend GTG's in one day each way.

Any progress on Ypsi? I like the idea of having it there, it's right down the road from REI .

Living in the San Francisco bay area, I was *hoping* to see something out on this coast, whether it be western Canada, western US, whatever.

HOWEVER, I've got a ton of family in Michigan, so I definitely wouldn't mind going all out and taking a road trip to Ypsi for it. Opening it up on the salt flats would be quite nice.

Fuel Economy: Is just one piece of the puzzle that is our bottomless appetite for oil. Cars donít have to be consumable. Instead of throwing them away, we can rebuild them, better. We have the technology.

If you really want to see something on the west coast, start a thread in the regional section trying to get volunteers together. Even if y'all can't get together enough ideas/volunteers for 2012, you can make friends and plan for '13, '14, etc.
