I shiver with antici... pation.VW Derf said:Sorry guys, the last few days have been too hectic to look at anything, let alone give this a thorough look over.. This is the first moment I've been able to get online in since Tuesday morning, therefore I'm delaying the final answer/announcement until Monday morning, November 10th.
Hope you guys can survive the weekend and sorry for the delay.

Or a cranky toofer who goes home in the middle of the night to have a temper tantrum.bhtooefr said:Of course, you occasionally get a drunk gutz that gets kicked out of parties, too.
Does this [above] sum up the events/program at the tdi Fest?BKmetz said:LOL... A picture is worth a thousand words. This rave scene from 'The Matrix' is an understatement, especially after Tomo left...
No, that is more what happens after your regularly scheduled TDIFest events happen.BEN721364 said:Does this [above] sum up the events/program at the tdi Fest?
I didn't have much luck finding substantive reasons to attend. Hopefully I missed them...
That's a good way to sum it all up.Growler said:No, that is more what happens after your regularly scheduled TDIFest events happen.
TDIFest is a place to:
*learn more about how & Why your motor works the way it does.
*What can and does go wrong when you try to mod a car too much
*What tools to use to work on your car properly
*How to Hypermile
*have a Car show, Awards Banquet, and Raffle
*Support your Favorite TDIClub Parts Vendors
*Learn how Greasecar does its thing.
*Get a chiptune in the Raffle
*Put Faces to all of these blank names on the screen you see every day
*Meet back up with old friends and hang out all night (See above photograph)
Trust me, TDIFest is a great place to be. and it is only Once a year.
Thanks for the information. I would be tempted to participate if it were anywhere but the D C metropolitan area. I spent 28+ years there and had enough of the area. Mebee next year.VeeDubTDI said:That's a good way to sum it all up.
Also, the event has been attended by Volkswagen in the past. Last year they brought several 2009 TDIs for test drives. We're hoping for something similar this year.
So what's your point???BEN721364 said:That's my understanding. It appears that the event will be in Northern Virginia, aka the D C metropolitan area.
You are correct. IAD is about 25 miles as the crow flies from the U S Capitol. Since the area is heavily developed, I consider it part of the D C metropolitan area. I also consider Kensington to be within the D C metropolitan area.tomo366 said:So what's your point???
The Dulles Corridor is quite a ways from DC
I feel sure the event will be nice but I will wait 'till next year to participate.tomo366 said:I consider outside the Beltway to be outside of DC........
When I go to the FEST (all except 1) I stay close to the FEST activities.......
Sorry you won't be here.......you will miss agood time!!
Sorry. I thought I made myself clear at the outset. I spent 28 1/2 years in the D C metropolitan area and consider that more than enough.Lug_Nut said:If it's DC you don't care for, I can accept that. I have similar feelings against some cities, but that's beside the point.
If however, it's "metropolitan areas" in general you don't care for, be aware that the fests are often held near major population concentrations. Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, Boston, Montreal, Toronto have been sites of past festivals.
Sometimes the term "densly populated area" seems to mean that an area is overpopulated with dense people.
