Aw crap!! First time the Fest is this close and I already have plans. Wife bought tickets for my birthday and didn't notice what day they are for. Sooooo, I'm going to be in chilly SF for those days.

Hope everything goes off without a hitch and it's a great Fest!

So change your reservations. It is easy if you fly Southwest and no charge. Lot's of time to make the change. San Francisco will be there, the TDIFest is only once a year!

Oh, don't think I didn't ponder that very thought! She knows I like Star Wars and the 31 Aug is Star Wars day (R2D2 beanie). I have seriously thought about swapping for different weekend, but this is a present from my wife. She was thoughtful and got something special to me, so I can't really change it. Unless she decides to make the offer, we will be in California that weekend.

I'm pumped and bummed at the same time. :):(

Just throwing this out there.

Has there ever been a dyno at a Fest?

Also, would anyone be interested in pitching in for a dyno?

I have considered it for two Fests... the first time power wasn't available within a reasonable distance, and the second time the pricing structure didn't work out. It's not outside the realm of possibility and there is usually enough interest to justify it.

YES at the Fort Atkinson WI fest Topols garage had one.

Note the question was at the fest. There have been opportunities off site at some fests.

I have seen mobile dynos, but have no idea what something like that would cost or if there would be enough interest to justify having one there.

Edit: Google is your friend: http://www.tracklab.biz/html/dynojet.html
I'm just trying to get an idea of how many are interested and would commit, I would personally love to have one there.

If you are interested or know someone who might be, go ahead and shoot me a PM. Hopefully we can make this happen with the numbers you throw at me!

Did Fred even receive a proposal yet? You can't just throw this together in the last min. Time is ticking a away.

I think it's more important to worry about a hotel than a dyno. The odds are that it will be off site if we do have one. Because of Ins reason.

I'll put this on the calendar and see if I can make it down there. It's not too far for me.

Dynamometer? I thought you guys in the U.S. still use Imperial measuring units?

Andy, I think the definition of "dyne" was the gist of Yuri's post, not of "meter". "Dyne" is a unit of force equal to 1/100000 newton (which is S.I., not imperial) hence Yuri's incredulity that 'murricans would use a 'foreign' unit of measure.

The hotel has been taken care of from what I gathered from the meeting.

dozenspeed is taking the lead on most of this, I am just volunteering to take on smaller aspects. I'm just throwing things out there to get an estimate so I can decide to further pursue elements of the fest or to dump them out the window.

St. Louis is by no means the official location of TDIFest 2014. There is a lot of administrative stuff that needs to happen, but Fred needs to receive and approve a proposal for the event *first*.

so let's get this rolling so everybody is not running around at the last minute or change the place so people that could make it now can't because of the location. Would like to know if this is going to happen :)

Second that^^^^

Dozenspeed has not been on the site since 2/19/14. Is he in or out. Sorry if a little rude but time is a wasting.
