See this post:
I would like to recommend that everyone who has the ability to come! I went to BrickFest DC last year and to PDX this past February - and I can say, without a doubt, it is worth every last penny.
Things to do:
1. Represent Castle to the LEGO Community,
2. get a chance to meet Jake McKee (and a few other TLG big-wigs),
3. meet the CC Admin team (I will be there, Troy will be there, and I think Tony, Ben E. and Ben M. will be making valient efforts to come)
4. See many of your favorite MOCs *in person*
Again, I hope to see many C-Cers there!
