I am the Castle coordinator for Brickworld
this summer. The Brickworld team just found out today from a LUGNET post by Christina Hitchcock
that the only BrickFest in 2007 will be the one in Portland.
I was personally very much looking forward to going to two LEGO fests this summer, but unfortunatelly it looks like the August Brickfest will skip a year. Thus Brickworld in June will be the only major AFOL event in summer 2007. As such, I would like to encourage everyone who can to attend Brickworld in Wheeling (in Chicago metro area) June 21-24.
We plan to have a large CCC display as well as table space for people to show their individual MOC's. There will be an opportunity to vote for favorite MOC's as well as a couple of contests.
The Brickworld team has already done a lot of planning to make sure that this first Brickworld event runs smoothly and is well worth attending. The event will be held at the brand new 5 star Westin Hotel & Convention Center
. Several people from the Brickworld team have visted the Hotel, and all have said that is very
nice, and that the room we have for displaying is HUGE. The Westin Hotel is also right between the LEGO stores at the Woodfield Mall and Northbrook Court.
If you live anywhere near Chicago and have always wished that there was an AFOL LEGO event near you, now is your chance to go to one! I would really like for Castle to make a stong showing at Brickworld. (C'mon, we have to beat Space)
I will update all of you here as I get new information about what will be going on at Brickworld.
If you have any questions or considerations on how the event will be run, how MOC's will be displayed or any other Castle-related concerns, please don't hesitate to reply or email me.
