will there be two brickfests this year?
I won't be going though, seeing as I'm only 16 and all, but I bet it would be great.

Hello Everyone, I just came out of my dark ages, so I have never been to Brickfest before. I would love to go as I live just a few hours from Portland. Does anyone have any idea how to find out info on cost, how to regester a Moc, or other details?
I would also enjoy being able to help out with the planning for a castle display! I think that as a castle community we should show Lego and the world that just because we are not getting new sets that we like, we are still very much imagining and building!!!
One final question, a little off topic, Does anyone have any advice for me as I try to rebuild my lego collection??
First, why isn't there a BrickFest (or similar con) in Chicago or some other central city? Because no one has stepped up to run one. It takes a lot of effort to put together a con, and it takes some up front money to reserve a space.
As a personal opinion, I'm glad the spring brick con is not being held near Legoland this year. While Legoland sounds like a good attraction, it really turns out to be a distraction. It might work out better if the whole event could be held at Legoland, but the way it works currently is that during large chunks of time, people are not really in a community gathering, but instead are wandering Legoland.
I'm standing in for Castle Coordinator for BrickFest PDX 2004 however, we would really love to have a more dedicated Castle Coordinator.
Perhaps the fact that I will probably be bringing more Space MOCs than Castle MOCs will be an incentive for the Castle folks to come up with a coordinator.
I am expecting to have some good castle displays. Assuming Thomas Rafert is able to come, he will bring his huge castle diorama, and Stephen Fisher will be bringing a bunch of castle MOCs.
I will also mention that if I'm coordinating, there won't be Castle MOC awards.
So, want to change things? Volunteer!
Thanks in advance
