I got in contact with Mark at Audi. They also have a charity auction of an R8 GT Spyder in Florida that weekend. Since he also product plans R8, he may need to go to this but has not yet determined if this is so. Will let you know. I may also see if any of the other product planners are available as they're all really interesting to meet.
Well the Canuck will not be joining you regardless
I just brought my car into the shop while at work, and she needs rear brakes, t-belt, water pump and a t-stat .... there goes my road trip cash
We could always reschedule for March bahahah I want pictures of this event if it still happens!
And George what's the deal? Is there a referral block on information from Audi too?
Anyway it better not be the last one! You guys could always come up to Toronto for Vagkraft in August! It's an awesome show.
Although August is the month of Seal Festival. We hunt seals for seal meat with our lumber jack beards and sharpened beaver tails. Upon collecting 5 lbs of seal meat, we hold a big dinner (All 42 citizens) in the Grand Igloo, then we sacrifice three Geese to our sacred Loonie in hopes of 6 more months of dominant Loonie power over the US dollar!
And Cldub, way to plan ahead! Moose meat makes for good insulation as well.
But in all seriousness, we party real hard up here! It's a good time! I'll post a thread in a couple months when more details are sorted out. I'd be happy to meet up somewhere in the states and cruise back, I still want my road trip!
Cheap beer and hotels! Lots of VW/Audi's ! You can't go wrong with Vagkraft
Sorry for the holdup guys. Mark was looking like he had to go to Florida for the R8 GT Spyder auction but he's not going now. I'll be meeting with him later today and can finalize details but it looks like he can do it. Is there still interest in heading down to HQ in Herndon and if so what is your timeframe? I'll pass it on to him when I see it this afternoon (if it can be determined by him) and confirm.
I think we said 6PM would work best for people (I believe t_white was the only one with a schedule conflict [wrenching]).
Also, were you guys going to any of the Cars and Coffee in the area?
Right now, we have:
2,3. cldub + 1
5,6. t_white +1 possibly
Checking. I'm not sure if there's something at Reston Town Center or maybe something else. Are you talking 6PM to meet up or 6PM at HQ? I'm believe he could probably walk us through the Audi Forum before heading out to beer/dinner.
I think cars & coffee is 7-9AM in Great Falls based on link below. I'm going to see if there are issues with me being gone all day because that's also kid's time with the family. If I can then I'll shoot to do both with our new R8 and will post here if that's the plan. Regardless, you guys should hit it if it's convenient.
