Group Picture at Friday, before the entrance of the Eurohotel

Same picture, but with one big difference. Who can spot it? HINT: Copmike/Ras

Posted Image
Copmike reading his questions during a LEGO knowledge quiz

Posted Image
Drinking beer and having fun!

Posted Image
Copmike preparing his quiz

An other side of the table and one of the few pictures where we can see Zorro (on the right side of KimT), since he was the photographer!

Posted Image
Posted Image
Still on the meeting table

We went inside when it got dark, to complete our games-schedule.

Also the minifigs were talking to each other.

Posted Image
Jipay's winning tower!

Posted Image
Building sets between the games in. Our favourite hobby!

Posted Image
Posted Image
The Jedi Mind Game (guessing which color the brick is, when being only able to feel the brick behind your back)

Posted Image
A game where you have to spit a gummy as far as possible!

Posted Image
KimT's "entry". Holodoc won the game!

Posted Image
At the entrance of the LEGOLAND park. The other members are waiting their turn to pay near the desk houses, while CGH the Dutchman searches for a free way in.

Posted Image
And O YEAH, the people from Holland are very inventive!

Posted Image
A beautifull Fox, in one of the many little parks.

Posted Image
One of the REAL LEGO builders, in his working place behind the park, telling us information about how he became a builder, building itself, the park, sets,...

Posted Image
And showing us his biggest secrets!

Posted Image
The Color pattern. This is the way the builders use it.

Posted Image
Also behind the scenes: a beautifull ship.

Posted Image
And a big scary Troll!

Posted Image
The Castle, including a shop where all Castle sets were sold, including some old ones!

Posted Image
Some of us, including me, visited Miniland afterwards, take a look at this beautifull farmhouse.

Posted Image
An automated coach, and some knights outside the castle walls.

Posted Image
Posted Image
A huge castle, with figures dancing inside (mechanical).

Posted Image

Posted Image
Bonaparte and Captain Green Hair, posing before a village.

Posted Image
Inside the park, near the Mindstorms Center

Posted Image
Posted Image
Preparing the cars for the first CGH-competition where the cars have to jump as far as possible over a ramp. Sadly the ramp picture was too dark... :sadnew:

Posted Image
BANG! The second competition was all around not loosing any bricks when their cars hit the wall!

Posted Image
The Miss Car Election. Holodoc won!

Posted Image
We of course continued talking to each other during the games.

Posted Image
Holodoc also won the General Competion (who had the highest score after counting all the points of all the games) Congratulations!

They were selfprinted, so you might want to ask him if he could just send you the pdf.

Oh, and there is stuff missing in your list. The city foldout poster, the Maersk DSS and I think 1 tan small legs. And weren´t the 1x1 light blue bricks supposed to be Maersk blue? I thought I heard something about that....

BTW, my truck was missing a superrare 1x1 bley round plate. Did it just fell out the bag, did you miss it or did you forget it in all bags? Just curious.

Oh yeah. Thanks. But I don´t think the tan legs were included in the extras. They were at the PaB, though. Also, I don´t have any Maersk blue nor light blue, so I don´t know.

And I totally envy you. Once someone told me about the 20% discount with a Merlin card I was constantly hoping to find someone with this card. I even bumped into you when you were leaving, misunderstood you for leaving the event now and didn´t want to bother you with that matter, as it would have taken some time to chose the bricks...
Evening came and nobody with a Merlin card to be found, I finally was at the Fabrik PaB at 18:30 - when the shop normally would have closed at 18:00! :oh3:
I just had the chance to rush in, grab a bag and put as many parts in there as possible without really chosing or counting. But boy was I surprised to find that a big bag of bricks really wasnßt that expensive after all. Best PaB ever!
I would have loved to stay in the PaB for at least half an hour longer. So much stuff I missed... :cry_sad:
