Would anyone be interested in having a tdi fest or a gtg at the very least sometime this fall in southeast Missouri more specifically Sikeston MO I can do all the event organization myself we could have it at the rodeo grounds here. The jaycee bootheel rodeo which was the highest paying rodeo event in th us at one time and might still be for all I know lol not a rodeo kinda guy but it is held there every year it is always in August on Wensday Thursday Friday Saturday and each night they have a concert at the end of the night but the rest of the year they rent it out for car shows, corporate events, carnivals and whatever else people want and they provide the insurance, event security, professional stage with lights and sound equipment if there was enough interest i could get it set up and maybe even have a concert as part of the event to help attract some of these newbies that have just bought this that where part of the buyback so maybe they will see how valuable it is to be a part of this club when you own a vw tdi just let me know
That would be sweet! I'm also a missourian, and think that would be fun. I've not been to any of the tdi fests or gtgs, so it would be a first for me.

Probably because my diesel truck gets about one third the fuel mileage that my Beetle got.
You could innovatively save a few bucks here and there from now until the TDI Fest Labor Day weekend (assuming there will be one) to cover the extra cost of fuel ..... problem solved!

VW Derf (Fred) attended several of the early 'Fest before he had a TDI.
Other have also attended / participated at TDI themed events without benefit of their own TDI.
I don't (currently) have a TDI, but I'd still plan on attending.
Show up in a rented Kia. Who cares?

Happy Labour Day weekend everyone.

I hope you everyone is doing well. Even though it has been several years now since our last TDIFest, it still seems strange for me not to be hanging out this weekend with all my fellow TDIFans, past and present and future.

Hard to believe how time passes and I miss you all.

My two favorite fests were in Wisconsin: 2005 (I think) in Lake Mills, and 2016 in Sturgeon Bay. I miss you all, too.

And Tred is back home after a 10 month sabbatical With nuts and bolts. New steering rack and a DFIS rebuilt original IP to the car. Would have been great to attend another TDIfest and keep the streak going. As Tomo said 5 years The fire bpoat was almost needed to quell the flames of the fish boil.

Oh, the fish boil. Some of the nastiest bony fish that I have ever eaten.

Out of TDI's
Why would that stop you?
It won't stop me if there is another Fest. But I would feel a little out of place without a TDI. Maybe by then I will stumble on a mint ALH TDI to scarf up. I let too many of them slip through my fingers over the years and now that generation of TDIs are vanishing.

And Sailor, I agree about the bony fish that night. But it was a great week in Wisconsin.
