Ok, so I may have been a bit busy lately (can anyone blame me!?) but I'm working on that.
Abby and Ellen are doing great and we are starting to fall into a nice daily routine which is helping to keep our weeks from just collapsing from under us. But I PROMISE to have a proper update post about all that soon... PROMISE!!!
What THIS post is about is me getting things together for some much needed social time!!
I have found a Lego Convention in VA in Aug of 2011 and I AM GOING! Ellen and Abby probably won't be joining me, but if I have to go alone, I don't care, I AM GOING! So what I want to know is.....
Does anyone want to join me?
The details can be found at www.brickfair.com
Option A: Public viewing is open Sat & Sun for $9 per day. Viewing ONLY (basically a walk-through to look at custom built models) This part does not really interest me as I don't want to drive down 3 hrs, walk around for 2-4hours, then drive home
Option B: Open Thurs - Sunday to exhibit YOUR custom creations for the public viewing, meet fellow Lego fans, participate in games and all kinds of conventiony type stuff! THIS is what I will be doing. Weekend reg is $52 ($50 if you pay them by check). You MUST prereg and pay before hand (MUCH before the deadline) because they only allow the first 1,000 who pay to attend. All others who attempt to reg will be turned away.
I did a quick search around the area and it looks like the hotel at the expo is the cheapest (as low as $99 / per night).
So.... I'm totally in. Anyone else?
