From what we've been told, Brickworld will be at the Westin in Wheeling at least through 2009.

That would be the easiest way to do it. If friends/groups collaborate, they could, of course, have individuals build sections that were made to go up against another person's elevated landscape. We'll probably have some "plains" of grass between sections of raised landscape.

Usually, yes. Setting up minifigs on your stuff makes everything look so much more alive and active. Animals are good too.

When you register on the Brickworld website, there's a part where you can sign up for MOC table(s). If you've already registered, you can still add/edit the number of tables you'd like. On the BW site, go to "Registration" on the far right. Then on the right under "My Page" click "Edit Your Registration." From there you can use the drop down menu to edit the number of tables you need.

Oh, I think you'd be surprised.
