Well... 10 days until we start set up.  I still have a ton to finish working on!  How are others doing in preparation?  When do our Euro Eurobricks members take flight?

Let's get this forum moving again!  I for one am really excited!  Hey Stash, is Saturday night gonna be pizza night again?

Leaving Saturday morning, so I'll be in Chicago around noon local time, assuming the security guards currently on strike at Oslo airport either have finished their strike or my flight not being cancelled due to the strike (or any of the other potential strikes that might happen any day here and that might influence air traffic. Early June really is the high season for strikes in Norway..)

I'm already dreaming about this :wacko:

I'm really ready to go.  I've got huge Sterilite bins to store my MOCs; glad that the gas prices are still nosediving.  I'm driving there for almost ten hours as well, hoping to get there by Wednesday afternoon (hoping to get some time to tool around in the city before the opening ceremonies  :laugh: )

Do I have any Town/CITY compatriots in here? :laugh:

I'm very excited! I've got four more nights to build, and it's still possible I'll be able to finish everything! :grin:

Si-mocs keeps trying to get me to panic. I'll start panicking once I give him all my MOCs to take down. :laugh:

I'll be flying down wednesday afternoon. Be sure to come introduce yourself.

I am flying Saturday from Amsterdam. I should be landing in Chicago around 2 o'clock in the afternoon. So I have plenty of time to visit the Blues Festival on Saturday and Sunday, and a Cubs game at Tuesday evening.

I'm shooting for an arrival Wednesday night, but more than likely, it'll be Thursday night. Brickworld is part of a 10,000 mile road-trip I'm doing, and I've got stops in VA, DC, and the NC Outer Banks (if I can swing that) on my way.  I've been super busy trying to get my LEGO stuff built, as well packing camping gear for my trip. Fun times!

This is my first BrickWorld event, and I'm super stoked about attending.  It'll be great to meeting you all!  

BTW, if anybody needs a ride to/from the airport, let me know.

Panic is starting to subside a little since Monday. My builds are coming along but it is going to come down to the wire especially since I go to Vegas on Friday and don't get back home until Tuesday morning then have a Cubs game Tuesday night. Needless to say I will probably have a very busy Wednesday finishing my building and packing. I can't wait!

Only 5 1/2 days until the opening ceremonies.  I have so much to build yet...

So many traveling from so far.  My hour drive to the venue just doesn't seem so troublesome any more!   :wink:

Safe travels to those starting out this weekend.  I guess I will have to send a text to Stash to get an update to all about Eurobricks pizza night.  I will post an update on those arrangements soon.

Can't wait to see you all again, and it's going to be great meeting all of you first timers!

Currently packing, had a hard time fitting one of the MOCs into the suitcase, but with a tiny bit of disassembly it was possible to squeeze it in. Not quite sure how the Hell I'll fit everything in, but I'm sure it will work out somehow, it usually does. :laugh:

Anyone make a reservation at the Westin on Wed and can't make it ?  I was able to bug out of work a day early and was looking to add a night but the Westin says they are booked on Wednesday and can't add me until they have a cancellation...


....but everything is packed up and ready to go.

Stash and I have conferred and our annual Eurobricks pizza dinner is on for Saturday night.  What I need everyone to do is see me at my castle display.  As long as it doesn't fall apart again it should be easy to find.  :blush:  It is gold and dark blue hexagonal castle.  The accompanying city is 24 feet long. My name is Dale so please come introduce yourself.  I am looking forward to putting a face to some of the names on Eurobricks.

Come by at 4pm... or earlier is fine too.  The cost is a mere 5$ for the pizza.  I will pick up any extra expense this year.  Please bring your own drinks as I am not sure I can fit my big cooler in the van with all of the LEGO.  Also let me know what type of pizza you like so we have an idea of what to order.  Pizza usually arrives at around 6 ish.

Hey Si Moc.  The accents are dark blue and gold, not the whole castle.  Yikes that would be expensive!   *oh2*

Remind me on Saturday what type of pizza you want.  I wasn't very clear but no need for people putting in orders on this thread.  I love your Great Wall MOC.  Very nice indeed.  

I have now put in 14 LEGO hours today and it is nappy time.  :sadnew:

And airports are insanely boring as usual. First flight of the day leaves in 50  minutes, and if everything is on schedule I'll be in Chicago in 12 hours 25 minutes. Yawn.   :sceptic:

Have a safe flight.  Stash tells me a few of you guys are taking in a Cubs game tomorrow.  It is gonna be a hot day and the women will be scantily clad!  Have a good time and go Cubbies.  I'll see you on Wednesday night Quarryman!

As usual I have checked-in, dropped off my luggage, and did the tax-free way too early.  I still have one and a half hour before boarding. :wacko:

Time for a late breakfast.

I am the one who wants a pizza without cheese.  :grin:
