And to add one thing for those of us who do not have paypal accounts (I know, old school here): I went to the post office and got an international money order in Canadian dollars. It only costs a few extra dollars to do this and there are no currancy conversion issues on the Canadian side. This makes it easier for the Canucks to collect Yankee money.

Since this is the REGISTRATION thread think this is the best spot to ask:

Is it true registration on-site ends at 8pm Friday evening?

At the past four Fests I've attended it didn't close until later. I only bring this up as I doubt that I will arrive until the 8-9pm timeframe on Friday. I may be out all day Saturday doing non-Fest stuff (as in gone before 8am so can't register on that day as a result) and no registration hours are listed for Sunday. And before you ask, yes I'm pre-registered/paid up so this is more of a pick up the name badge/t-shirt deal. ;)

it is true that registration check-in ends at 8pm on Friday and opens up again on saturday. We've restricted the number of hours that registration check-in will be open this year, due to the fact that the staff also has other responsibilities in terms of running other events as well and will not be able to spend ALL day checking people in. On Sunday the hope that most people will already be checked in for the events they're participating in and therefore will not require registration assistance. Again, at this time the staff will be in charge of leading other Fest related events. So if you are attending TDIFest 2007 make sure that you check-in during the allotted times so that you can attend these events! :) If you are planning on arriving late or after check-in times, special arrangements may be made available for you to pick up your items. Please contact us ahead of time so that we know to put your T-shirts and name tags aside for late pick-up appointments.

I can certainly understand needing to limit the hours the Fest staff can provide for various activities such as registration. Thanks for your quick clear explaination to my inquiry. :)

(PM to be sent to you very soon!)

ok everyone,
time is of the essence for registration! only a little over a week left until fest! just a few items to be mentioned as fair warning for those latecomers:

1. from this point on Fest T-shirts are on a limited supply only, meaning that if you are registering now, you will not be guaranteed a shirt with your order. if, during registration check-in we still have shirts left over in the size of your choice, then you will receive one - but again it is not guaranteed. So, still be sure to choose the size shirt you would like just in case we are able to accomidate your order.

2. onsite registration is being accepted, however onsite registration does not include the option for attending meal based events such as the meet-n-greet, saturday speakers breakfast, and sunday nights banquet. so be sure to register now if you want to attend those events!

3. mail-in check are no longer being accepted as payment, as they will not be received in time for fest. Cash is the only acceptable payment for onsite registration - local ATM is located across the street from the hotel for on-site registration.

if there are any questions, as always please feel free to PM me or send an email to tdifest@tdiclub.com

i hope to see more of you there! :)

ok folks, i caught up on triple checking everyone's orders and profiles to make sure everything is in order and there are MANY that are missing orders. I'm in the process of sending out emails to those whose orders are missing. Please respond ASAP so we can make sure everything is in order for Fest time. Most of you will be able to follow the instructions posted about, and reiterated in the email. If you have any questions at all, PLEASE contact me so we can get them answered and get you ready to have a awesome time at fest.

my goal for check-in is to have everyone in and out as efficiently, quickly, and accurately as possible, so that no one has to wait in line for an extended period of time, and spend less time discussing diesel fun-stuff! :) Let's make this happen by making sure everyone's orders are in! :D

Thanks to everyone who's registered and their patience in using/trying out our new website processing.

OK - so it looks like we've sold all out of TDIFest 2007 t-shirts! Those who have ordered a Fest shirt and do not recieve one will, will have the option of recieving the 10 year Anniversary T-shirts in place of the fest shirt. Those who registered or ordered a shirt early will be guaranteed a shirt, those registering later will not be guaranteed. You will recieve all t-shirts upon check in for registration at tdifest.

a note to all who may not know: 10 year anniversary shirts were made to celebrate 10 years of tdiclub! all proceeds go back to TDIClub. They come in black or white, men's or womens styles, in all sizes up to XXXL, long and short sleeve. with all of the fest logos from years past on them (excluding this years). They will also be for sale at TDIFest this year, for those who may want one.

Uh Oh. I am still not 100% sure about my timeline. Even though I am registered, I am not sure when I will make it t Montreal. I hope to be able to make it there for the Sunday banquet, but can't guarantee it. If I can't pay for the banquet at time of check-in, can I pay for it up front, and get a refund if I can't make it???

at this point, once you've ordered a meal and paid for it, i can not guarantee you a refund, as then we're loosing money on a meal not paid for. our budget is really tight. I'm sorry. but i'll have to say no on this one. :eek:
