"When are you finished? I´m getting bored with this!"

One word about the hotel:
Posted Image
DON´T EVER GO THERE!
To cut a long story short: They messed it up charging breakfast we didn´t have and not being able to provide an internet connection they make promotion with on their website.  :angry: :angry: :angry:   There was even more, but preventing me from a myocardial infarction I chose to eliminate the memory of this. Thank you - and don´t ever mention it again.

The complete folder. It´s worth a click!

Great pictures so far.
I know we can always count on KimT and Holodoc.
Also good that Zorro had a great camera and ran around as a paparazzi.
The pictures of all the Eventees where great Doctor, should have asked for someone to borrow your camera.
*Mental note to-self*

Jeess... Dennimator is getting all over this place.
He is almost more cocky then Khorne after Windsor.
He really grow some nice fighting attitude  :grin:

About the fight of the EuroHotel:
Me and Kim was watching this in some distance.
We thought if you would have gone up to the normally friendly doctor at that moment and pocked him in the side,
he would have blown up.
So good to have someone that can pick good fights in the language that is spooken where you are.

Looks like you guys had tremendous fun, I too am envious. :laugh: I'd have to save up an awful lot more than Hinckley to make it next year. Ah well, can't have everything. :grin:

Some of those contests look pretty wacky, what I notice though is the diversity of Lego-themed T-shirts. Just something that jumped out at me. :laugh:

And of course, who wouldn't be envious of that awesome goodies bag! :wub: Envy ON indeed!

Looks like you saw lots of cool things behind the scenes at the builders shop, again, very envious. Just look at all those drawers of bricks! :wub: You guys sure are lucky to live in a part of the world that you can all get together. :sweet:

Nope, you failed. You said 2 hours!  :tongue:

How did you build it? From each bag individually or did you throw all the bricks on one big pile?
My wife built it from the bags and needed 5 hours, but she isn´t well trained.
I needed app. 4 to 5 hours after I dismantled the village and threw everything on one pile. Well, I didn´t really stop the time but I managed to watch 2 movies during that time.
And my sister tried too and needed 7 hours from a big pile, but she also isn´t trained well.

When I saw this photo, I just had to remark about it.  I know him!  Bernd (at least I think that's how to spell his name  :look: ), the Model Builder.  He and the other Bernd came and worked over at LEGOLAND California with my Model Shop crew when we were building Miniland Florida a few years ago.  They built a six foot tall Vehicle Assembly Building for the Kennedy Space Center area.  Sadly, the models are no longer in California.   :sad: They can now be seen in Denmark.  Also, a copy of the area is at LEGOLAND Windsor in England. :sweet:

He's a great guy, and I enjoyed the month that I was able to work with him.  :wink:

Nope, I said around 2 hours. No fail. :tongue:
Around is like up to 2.15. :wink:  
Still better than 4 hrs. :tongue:

I threw all bricks in a big pile.
Those Technic pieces was a pain in the a$$ to find... :alien:

You are planning long ahead I see.
With that in mind, it will not be so hard to make something out.
I can imagine to go to Windsor then at least.
Will you be there for vaccation?

Yes, we are planning long long ahead. One income only makes it hard to save.

It will be a holiday in Britain, and maybe France if we can afford it  It will be our first time to a Legoland. (or Event, if one should happen to exist  :tongue: )

If we get the opportunity to have such a pleassure to get a fine lady from down-under here,
we really can´t miss the chance to bring some of the very finest members of EB there to meet up with you.
Bring as many Aussies you can at that time
I really hope that some good members have joined then  :tongue:
