I think that I might have to check out this show.  Never been to ANY Lego shows ever so this would be a first.

Awesome moc Rook!

Thanks for helping out with promoting the event, It has been a while since i have been in this forum, But I just wanted to send out a reminder that full registration for Brickfete ends on June 15th, there will still be Late Registration but you will not get your event bag and your name will not be listed in event program.

Also if you are planing on staying at the Hotel (for a great deal @ $79 dollars a night) the cut off for hotel bookings at this rate is June 10th

I hope to see alot of you there, Who is planning on attending?

I'll only be able to make it out for an hour or two on Sunday. But I might send some MOCs with fellow ToroLUGers.

Great, will do :) I'm working on a small Game of Thrones moc... hopefully I'll have it done in time, but I won't make any promises! Also, I love the new display at the Fairview Lego store, great job to whoever built it!

The current Fairview model (the two buildings) was built by Calum Tsang. The previous model the Iarport was built by my self.

If you're coming, don't forget to say Hi!

I'll probably be in the back in the Sci-Fi / Space section (shocking  :laugh: )

A quick question from the uninitiated: What form of payment to vendors accept? I'm talking about the major sponsors/vendors more so than individuals selling there.  Cash is limited but credit cards are where I'll probably be buried.  :tongue:

Cash is safest (haven't you been systematically taking out money in preparation?)

Edit:
Some vendors have access to cc readers so you should be able to use your credit cards!
