TDIFest relies on volunteers.

This whole event is planned and executed by volunteers.

Here's your chance to lend a hand to your TDI community by becoming a Fest volunteer on site in Sturgeon Bay, WI! :D

Please respond to this thread with days and times you'd be willing to help us out. I will contact you via PM with the items we need help with that match the times you are available.

This is a great way to get to meet your fellow club members or for significant others to meet others who may also be 'along for the ride.'

You don't even need to know a thing about diesels to be of help!

Thank you in advance for helping us give you the best TDIFest yet!

I can be available on all 4 days. Lisa and I are planning to arrive on Thursday before TDIfest so I can rest up after driving 1240 miles from NH.

Looking forward to TDIfest! :)

Planning on arriving Thursday. I can help Fri-Sun. Will fill in where you can use me with one exception; I have a blown disc in lower back, so no heavy lighting.

Take your time. I had my L5-S1 done in May. Recovery went well but I still have a patch of numbness in my lower calf, ankle, and big toe.

Yeah, all that getting in and out of the BMW at fuel stops must be tiresome.:p
LOL. :)

Like in a TDI, I will only be stopping twice for fuel along the way with the BMW's 600 mile tank range. :cool: I will be doing the drive straight through (1240 miles) like I normally do when I drive from NH to Cocoa Beach FL (1400 miles).

A big thank you to those who have shown an interest in volunteering. Some of you have heard from me by now.
Those who've claimed 'flexibility' with their schedules - I may have to coordinate with you on site to fill in the gaps. Please let me know if there is any time/day you cannot do - I'll be able to better fill our needs while meeting yours.

I'll seek you out to volunteer for a time or two. Probably not during shine-n-show. Look forward to seeing you again, Hamster.

My exact issue - L5-S1. Numb left buttock and left foot. Surgery will be done Nov or Dec. Drive from Reno will be interesting, but looking forward to the event. Glad to hear your surgery went well overall.

Guilty as charged.... I was looking and thinking the last TDIFest I attended was 10 years ago:eek:

I miss the club and the GTG's and the Fest.... I need to come back:D

Has it been that long. The Ho5G has missed you. Perhaps the red tee shirt group should reassemble.

I have missed the Ho5G for sure:( Lots of fantastic memories. I will make it for one of the infamous GTG's:D

I think it will be really nice to get the "red tee shirt group" together for a reunion:)

I hope you enjoyed the 'Fest.
