Hello!

We sorta talked a little about it in this thread here, and I thought since we've still got a few weeks before NorthWest BrickCon, I'd try to get an idea of how many of us Bothans are gonna be attending. Depending on how large of a goup of us will be there, I'd like to try to organize some stuff for us to do.

Once I get a rough head count, maybe we can collectively decide in this thread on some ideas. Like, where to meet, if we wanna go out to eat together as a group, if we wanna do a group project where we each bring something to the con and assemble them into a diorama -- that kinda thing.

So, if you're an active FBTB member and you're gonna be attending NorthWest BrickCon in Seattle, WA this year from Oct. 2nd - 5th, post here, and we can talk about what we wanna do.

I'd really like to make this first official FBTB mini con, if possible. Like, if we can get ourselves organized, we might actually be able to pull this off. That'd be SWEET! Very Happy

Oh, SO there.

Mike, Adam: Scifi museum. No Excuses. We HAVE to make it this year.

In other news, there are a confirmed 170 people registered! If you haven't yet done so, do it TODAY otherwise you may not get your brick badge!

This is good, we're on a roll here. Regardless of how many active FBTB members attend the convention, I'd still like for us to, at the very least, spend a little time hanging out, getting to know each other a bit, and take a group photo. But, if we can confirm that a sizable amount of us are gonna be there, I'll see about organizing something much more formal. Like, ideally, I'd love to get us a room, perhaps, or some session time where we can meet together, uninterrupted, and and have a little group activity. I'm thinking even some give-aways and raffles, as well. The convention is only a few short weeks away, but I'm totally willing to put in the time and make this great for us as long as the interest and presence is there.

Possible ideas:

-meeting room or session time for FBTB members ONLY
-have some pizzas delivered for us to eat while we shoot the breeze
-group photo
-at the very least, some small Star Wars (and maybe a few non-Star Wars, depending on what I have) baggie sets that we can give away, raffle, whatever
-whatever other little goofy Star Wars or LEGO related junk I can dig up before then to give to you guys
-an official FBTB mini con model/set: something I'd build and bring a copy of for each of us; nothing super huge, but at least something to commemorate the event
-a little surprise hand-out thing I have in mind, which will be of little or no monetary value, but should be cool nonetheless
-the chance to see me wear a feather boa
-maybe a small group project: nothing big or complicated, but just something maybe each of us can build and bring with us to assemble into a small scene (I actually have something in mind, but I'll wait to see how many people are coming before I decide for sure)
-anything else you guys can think of

We've got the whole weekend, so if we wanna hang out and do something after con hours, too, I'm all for it.

Anyhow, those are just some things off the top of my head. I'd also love to hear from you guys to see what you might like to do. This is the first time we've done anything like this, and even though there isn't much time left, the main point is just to say hi and have fun. Anything above and beyond that is just added awesome.

I should probably draw a logo or something for us now..
"FBTB Mini Con 2008: Be there -- the chip that Mike implanted in your brain compels you (it was clearly outlined in the rules when you signed up for the forums...I bet you didn't even read them, did you?)"

Very Happy

If I thought I could scrape together the money, I'd go. For those of you that do manage to go, enjoy.

K, I'm all official and junk. And another heads up for anyone else who likes to procrastinate like me - after today the price jumps from $50 to $60, so act fast!

Even tough I live in Vancouver, I can't go due to lack of time. Sad

If I'm not at school, I'm trying to finish my homework. If I'm not doing homework, then I'm asleep or eating, or other general basic needs for living. Razz

I have no love for Mark Sandlin. And I am certainly not shedding pounds to look sexy for him.

Pounds? Pssh, that's nuthin.' I'm shedding my SKIN to look sexy for Mark.

There aren't many people that I'd molt for, but for Mark, anything.

I know dude, it's just too bad Tucson isn't part of the U.S. anymore.

Well, duh! Very Happy I mean, I just pretty much assumed that if someone choose "Yes" it signified the acknowledgment their own dorkiness and their desire to hang out with the rest of us dorks. jej!
