My BrickFest Experience
Ben E 18 VIII 04

Castle at BrickFest 2004 was a great success! Meeting so many Classic-Castle members was wonderful. The castle events went well. From Friday to Sunday we had three moc "show and tell" sessions. On Saturday there were several castle sessions. Magnus Lauglo, the castle room coordinator, presented on large-scale castle building and incorporating historic details into castles. I presented on the website. Then Lenny Hoffman led a presentation and discussion on the CC City Standard. Many good ideas came up but I will let Lenny post about that. On Sunday, the public could enter and view our creations. The castle room was packed with kids and parents. BrickFest had over 1500 visitors. That is over 5 times the amount that came last year! BrickFest 2004 was my first fest and it was a blast. I encourage each of you to attend in the future. You wont regret it! (but your wallet might be very thin when you return)

Classic-Castle at BrickFest 2004
Lenny 10 VIII 04

BrickFest DC is a mere few days away and things are begining to come together for the largest 3CS Display, by far, ever! If you are bringing something for the 3CS Display, the Castle Coordinating Team has a few new ideas for you to participate in!

The primary new idea is that each house will be identified with its builder by flags. Marc Nelson, Jr has spearheaded this idea, and has volunteered to make the chart defining who's house belongs to whom. Reserve your favorite flag combo today!

This is also the first year for the My Own Castle Competition (MOCC) . The idea of the MOCC is for attendees to make their own TLG style castle (think like the BFF, Black Monarch's Castle or 6080 King's Castle) to sit on a 48x48 base.

Lastly, with several Classic-Castle admins making an appearance (Lenny, Ben, Troy, and Kevin) - expect to see periodic updates and As-It-Is-Happening reports keeping you up to date on everything of importance that happens at fest.

BrickFest 2004 is shaping to be the best fest ever!!

Can't wait to see all you guys there!!
