BrickWorld has a Big Announcement


Although I won’t be able to attend 😦 , Brickworld is less than a month away. They are almost at their planned capacity of 480 attendees.

The Brickworld Team is thoroughly overwhelmed right now. We have set a record attendance level and are fast approaching what seemed unattainable a few short weeks ago.

There are presently 427 registered attendees. We can only guarantee goody bags to 480 attendees. We will most certainly have some kind of goody bag for everyone, but we will not have enough of everything to populate an unlimited number of goody bags. Logistically, we simply can’t get more of everything in time for the event.

So, you didn’t stop reading this message? You are probably thinking that this wasn’t a very big announcement yet. So, read on.

We are overjoyed to be able to announce to everyone that we will be honored with the presence of Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen and Jorgen Vig Knudstorp at Brickworld. They will be arriving Friday (hopefully in time for opening ceremonies at 4 PM) and staying through Saturday or possibly Sunday.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago when we light up the night with World of Lights!!!

Regards, the Brickworld Team

Brickworld will be held June 18 – 21, 2009 at the Westin North Shore Hotel in Wheeling, IL (a suburb of Chicago).

With Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen (grandson of the founder of LEGO) and Jorgen Vig Knudstorp (LEGO’s CEO) coming, it almost makes me want to go. I’d love to, but with all that’s going on with the rest of my life that just isn’t possible. Guess I’ll just have to live vicariously through my friends photos and posts of the event. 🙂
