Jimnms,
Yes...actually, I think we'll be selling raffle tickets. Something like $1 each or 6 for $5. Then, you can put your tickets in the corrisponding raffle items bin. The winners will be drawn at the banquet dinner.

This was the only way I see fair to everyone.

This way, if a person can only afford to buy one ticket, they still have a chance to win and it doesn't mean the guy with the deepest pockets wins, it just improves their odds.

As it stands right now, those ARE the items that will for sure be there. If the attending says YES or REGISTERED, then those vendors/mfgrs will be there as well.

Looking forward to meeting a bunch of fellow TDIers at the Fest!
Later,
Jeff

Please email or pm me! What email address have you been using? What PM name? If you have used the tdifest@tdiclub.com email address, Fred, Jeff, and I all would have gotten the email. I know I haven't seen it. If you had been emailing Jeff directly, we've recently discovered that A LOT of his emails are getting bounced by his companies SPAM system. We'd love to have you there!

I got your Gift Certificates LanduytG. Thanks a lot for your contribution to the fest and sorry about the confusion. My co. swapped computers on me and I'm not getting some of the e-mails I should be getting or have gotten in the past. At least it's all figured out. I've updated my vendor/contribution list accordingly. Thanks again, Jeff

It looks like some cool stuff is being donated by the vendors. Thanks guys for supporting TDIFest and TDIClub! We'll make sure it gets put to good use!

Please note that if you plan to sell products at TDIFest you will need to contact Jeff (bluenb1). He will get you all setup and registered as unregistered vendors will not be permitted to sell items at the fest.

For those with some personal items, don't worry, there will be a swap meet on Saturday.

Guess that's what happens when GeWilli isn't in attendance - he was the (now legendary) auctioneer at the last three Fests. Not going to be the same with someone pulling numbers (and maybe the odd Rabbit diesel) out of a hat!

Actually we may be doing a little bit of both...auction and raffling. Maybe even several 50/50 raffles throughout the course of the fest! Those are always fun! So don't start pouting just yet Heck...this event is flexing up until the day it's over. See you there! J

Oh, I'm not fuming or anything about raffle vs. auction format. Every Fest is different somehow and perhaps this would be a better approach to have a mix of the two formats. Long as we rake in some bucks for the club it's all good, right?!

Foaming is reserved for the trains. You wouldn't understand unless you remember steam locomotives. That isn't a jibe BTW - am on the level here, honest!

I know you weren't upset...I was just poking a little fun at ya. I thougth I was beginning to see that bottom lip start to appear when you mentioned it just wouldn't be the same without the auctioneer?
You're right though...it doesn't matter how we do it...bottom line is to have FUN,bring in some $$ for the site and meet some fellow TDI folks.

Rich, please email me at eschady@yahoo.com. I appologize for the inconvenience. I'm assuming Fred has a SPAM blocker on the incoming account, and then a second set of SPAM blockers when it is forwarded to our personal accounts. I know Jeff has been missing lots of emails, and unless someone speaks up I'd never know if I was missing them too.

Thanks,
Edward
