Congratulations to the CinciTDI and Columbus TDI Groups for being select winners of TDIFest 2008.

TDIFest 2008 will be held in Mason, OH on the Labour Day weekend (August 29th to August 31st, 2008) and will be put together with the key people below from the CinciTDI and Columbus TDI groups:

RichC
Growler
cojones
ITSPREZ
GMark
Paramedick


[SIZE=+0]Mason, OH is just outside of Cincinnati and 1.5 hours south of Columbus, OH. The schedule is still being tweaked and is preliminary, but will loosely following the 06/07 schedules.[/SIZE]

A brief and tentative outline can be viewed here (PDF, 1.5mb)

[SIZE=+0]More to come as things progress. We anticipate having registration up and running in early January once a few more items/schedules are tweaked.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=+0]Now, can I squeeze the time to drive the 4,089 km each way or do I fly?

Let the questions begin!

when is registration going to be up?
why isn't it being held closer to my house?
why do I have to pay to register if I only attend for the day?
why can't it be held during my scheduled vacation week?
:rolleyes:


I've marked my calendar....in indelible ink!
Looking forward to details as they are announced.

Only 7 hours from Toronto... and close to one of the truly great Rib joints... (Montgomery Inn - it's only been 24 years since I've been there... 25 by the time TDI-Fest takes place... a good excuse to celebrate... hmmmm... wonder if the wife will appreciate attending TDI-Fest as a 25th wedding anniversary celebration...)

Congrats to the organisers!!

Yuri.

Yes, though Ohio is mostly flat and has an annoying speed limit (which is actually enforced :( ) it is a nice central location!

A flat state? Cincinnati is the city of 7 hills:
  • Mount Adams
  • Mount Airy
  • Mount Echo
  • Mount Healthy
  • Mount Lookout
  • Mount Storm
  • Mount Washington
    There is also the largest fireworks display in the country every year the night before Labor Day. You can either see it in Ohio or across the river in Kentucky.

Its only 517 Miles from Raleigh. I could actually make this on less than a tank!!

I believe I've got a friend in Cincy, too... more reasons to go!

We have a great venue and lots to do in the area. As Growler said, bring the family. This will be a good one and you will have fun! :)

Why break your perfect TDI Fest non-attendance record? :confused:

I'm serious - in past years MOGolf was not interested when I asked if he was going to that year's Fest to the point I quit asking and this was before his work schedule ramped up to current levels.

***See post #26 and #28 below for the correct information as I was incorrect in my recollection of MOGolf's non-attendance at Fests.***

What do you say now Robert??:rolleyes:
I didn't know him in '02 and don't recall us speaking at that Fest. I stand corrected far as his Fest attendance goes. :eek:

Trouble maker........I haven't seen you for more than 10 minutes the last 2 fest's;) :rolleyes: :eek:
At least I PAID up with Fest registration (2002-2007) which helps support this site regardless of how much I was around anyway at each one.

So what's your point?? The Fest is about friendship and comaraderie
and yes Fred get's a few bucks......;)
This was in reference to your earlier post in which you said you had not seen me for more than 10 minutes at the last two Fests. Does that bother you? If so, it shouldn't. I was simply taking in the area sights which is one of the Fest's selling points after all.

So... registration will be up a week earlier?:D
Knowing the locals, they will labor tirelessly to get it going much earlier.
