Well it's that time again. May was a bit of a weird month as we didn't have a TDI GTG in Vancouver, but there was Jorry's annual GTG in Lake Stevens, Washington, which, despite some less than perfect weather, was a great success!! But now it's time to get back to our regular "local" GTGs.

So the date of the next GTG will be on June 27th at 11 am until whenever the last person leaves. The address is Unit 8 30508 Great Northern Ave, which is the 3rd street after you exit Highway #1 at the Mt.Lehman exit. There's penty of parking and everyone is welcome. There will be kids and dogs so feel free to bring the whole family! Just make sure to bring some camping chairs to sit in as seating is pretty much non-existent.

Link to Google Maps

So far, the interest and attendance has been pretty decent and as such, this will be a monthly deal. And the shop that's hosting the GTG (JS Performance) has mentioned to me that they're looking at TDI Club specials on things like maintenance and related items, as long as there's enough people showing up, so let's make sure we get those TDI's out to the GTG!!

My GF makes some pretty good cookies - I'll try to get her to make a batch to bring along.

The 27th works great for me, count me in Ed and I'll bring a party tray of finger food from costco. Is it possible to change the date in the header of your post since it indicates june 20th, which might prevent someone from opening it and reading that it's on the 27th?

I tried, but the editting feature doesn't allow changing the post title, it only lets you add a header to the first post, just above the body text. :rolleyes:

It's been updated now. :) As for attendance, I'm still less than a 50% chance at the current rate.:(

C'mon people, we need to start getting more people to commit to this. I know a lot of people have a habit of just showing up, but it's important to have a good showing on here so first-timers will see that it's not just the same few people all the time and not feel welcome.

BUMP!! :D :D :D :D

Well it looks like I won't be able to make this GTG. I can't get the time off from work. Hopefully someone else can bring some burgers in my place! :(

I'll bring burger patties and a dozen keiser buns instead Ed. How about condiments? Does Jose have those or does someone need to bring those?

Thanks Frank! There should be the usual condiments at the shop. If not, there's a supermarket just the other side of the highway by the automall.

Wish I could make it but there's bound to be 1 or 2 of these GTG's that I won't be able to make.:(

Days ago I bought my first TDI, a 2001 Golf and I'd like to come and talk to everyone if I can make it. Sometimes last minute work comes up so I'm not sure as far as planning ahead goes. Are you usually still going around 1-2pm? Good to know there's a grocery store across the street for last minute offerings...

Thanks again!

Thanks again Jose and Leigh-Anne for hosting another TDI Club GTG. I appreciate your contribution that is most generous and commendable in light of working 6 days a week, sometimes into the night and then giving up your day off to host these events. The weather wasn't with us this time but hopefully we can have a better turn out next time.
