Meet & greet is a social that can and will most likely be held in the restaurant at the hotel. you are on your own for food/beverage.

Breakout sessions are discussions about various topics led by a couple/three of our well known & loved members about whatever topic they choose.

one of the breakouts will be led by Chris Hill (mrchill) but I am not aware of his topic as of yet.

So, is VWoA coming this year?
No final commitment yet, but it is looking very promising. If the discussion I've been part of works out, they will be showing off a few things North Americans haven't seen. ;)

About the Road Rally ... its going to work out great if the weather is good. I'd like to see if we can get a few drivers starting a bit earlier than 3:30 ... especially "IF" the turnout of TDI is good. (more teasers on this later) It will be helpful to be at the destination endpoint prior to 5:00PM ... so if you are planning to be part of the Rally be sure to get to the "starting line" early. :D

Is there anymore details on any of these schedule items?

Like what are the subjects and speakers of the tech sessions and the breakout sessions?

Can you describe in more detail what the road rally/fuel economy event is?

Do you expect to be adding something to Sunday morning or is it only the car detailing event.

If not, is there a list of events in the area that we can be pointed towards?

(Obviously still trying to decide)

You'll all welcome to fly/drive a couple miles up the road for a Pancakes and Sausage breakfast on Sunday morning!;)

Disclosure: My EAA Chapter has its annual FlyIn/Pancake Breakfast on Labor Day weekend ... which is the reason I've never attended a TDIFest. This year with it nearby, I'll be able to shuffle between both events. (BTW ... volunteer 'Pancake flippers' are always welcome! :D )

Let's not forget the King's Island nightly fireworks and the big celebration in Cinncinatti on the 31st. :cool:

There will also be a TrackMania LAN Party that will probably go deep into the night on at least one of the nights. :D w00t for drunken online racing games!

The party will be open to anyone who wants to participate... just download the game (for free) and bring your laptop. :cool: If you want to play, shoot me a PM so that I can make sure we will have enough space in our hotel room for everyone. We already have about 7 people on the list.
