That's okay, Josh. You're forgiven.

And Thanks!

I will cover all of my info here.

I will be going.

My wife and I just had a baby girl and so there has not been alot of time for building, lately my bricks come out for my son to play. My castle is being rebuilt. I have continued to build my armies and will bring them. I plan on having them armed and bagged by unit. I have built more roads than I had and have built several pieces of river one with a very basic bridge over it. I do not have many trees however to put along side the roads. I can also build some basic walls if needed. and can bring basic brick for use there (we could have used more at NWBrickcon.) I would love to head up the battle once we are there.

Darkie----I will have a sigfig (green wizard) I can posibly help construct others, let me know what you need and I will let you know.

BreadMan----I may not have any mocs there but just in case why don't I use red over green (I am a boy scout) for flags.

ffilz----email me more on the Pirate and Western needs I curently have 2 baracudas built and several of the other ships built and about 20-30each of the red and blue soilders. I also have about 9 of the covered wagons, 6 of the tee pee cloths, about 30-40 soilders, and about 15 indians that can be used.

any questions pm me or email me, I am on the list that is for planning.

Sweet, I was hoping you would be able to make it. Congratulations on the birth of your daughter too! Hopefully mother and baby are both healthy?

A big pirate display will be an opportunity for me to display my collection of 40 (I think) "cutters" for Evil Stevie's Pirate Game (most of the cutters are variations on the ship from the Imperial Trading Post or the Emperor's ship from the Adventurers line).

I also have most of the pirate ships built up, though most could use some refreshing...

40? Now that's a fleet! I'm planning a couple islands at least, and maybe a custom ship or two. I could bring my barracuda but I'd rather do something custom, I mean how many barracudas do we really need? :P I'm really looking forward to seeing a real pirate display at a con, this is gonna be sweet :D:D:D

I love the design of the baracuda so much that one of the things I would like to do at some point is convert the colors of one to be a different merchant ship. I use mu baracudas and the clipper as merchants so that the pirates have someone to prey on. This will not be done by brickfest however.

Who is the official castle organizer for BrickFest PDX 2007

Postby justin2576 » Wed Feb 21, 2007 5:44 am

I plan to bring a layout and need to know some layout dimensions and/or table sizes so I can plan my layout accordingly. I heard we are going 3 tables deep (9 baseplates) but need to find out for sure.

Okay, I'm going (will register tonight). :D March looks very busy, but let's see what I can whip together -- ya'll just might get a castle outta me yet.

I'll keep this thread posted, and suspect there'll be some discussion at the SEALUG meeting this Saturday as well. Darkie, Thomas, other local CCers: you coming? (EDIT: To the SEALUG meeting, so this can be discussed, that is -- obviously you're going to BF PDX...)

I should be there. It's close to my house.

I'm trying to decide whether or not to give the cathedral an early preview. I'm not sure.

Oh snap! I'll add you to the mailing list, just in case.

Edit: Oh, and glad you decided to come. I was about to send you a persuading email about how I'm pretty sure missing this would be something very much regretted once April 2nd comes around and pictures start hitting flickr :)

Just in case the word didn't end up getting around both I and Remyth are coming for sure, however just to cover it now, we will not be staying in the motel there.

Is there a specific time we need/should be there on Friday?
