Whirlwinds rule

As we get closer to the event, everything starts to spin faster and faster.

Last week, the fliers for the LEGO stores arrived...of course, they arrived right when Adam was leaving town.  So, thanks to Jeff and Robyn Veins for taking thousands of fliers and making a trip around Chicago to get them in stores!!

Registration is jumping (as it always does this time of year) and we are fast approaching 900 again.

I got trophies built and the placards designed.  Kathie now has control of the badge design so that she can make the badges.  The lanyards (different design this year) are being quoted.  Thanks to BrickForge for sponsoring the lanyards!!

I spent Saturday doing a display with some of my fellow IndyLUG members for the Indy 500 Kids Fest (no relation to that other Kids Fest).  We set up a main straightaway from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and had LEGO drag races...well, actually, they were Indycars built on 9V train motors with metal track embedded in the speedway.  But, the kids really enjoyed it!!  We even had a lady from the real track stop by and ask if we would bring it to the race track next weekend.  So, I might have to spend next Sunday at the track...oh darn...and she said she would give us some tickets to the race.  So, there goes the following Sunday too  :)

If you haven't noticed, I started putting the schedule together and getting it up on the web site.  I think that everything is there except the Friday presentations.  I plan to finish those up tonight.

We hit 100 "Likes" on the Brickworld Chicago FB page this weekend.  If you haven't "Liked" it yet, get on board with us please  :)

If anyone knows how to make a flash mob happen at the event...surprise me  ;-)

One final request in this ramble...we have online ticket sales open for public days.  Please spread the word.
