So now I am in Chicago (where apparently taxis get a LOT of money) and recovering.
Well, I had two meetings today about some things that are in the
planning stages - one is with the Museum of Science and Industry and
one has to do with BrickWorld.
I'll start with BrickWorld - I got to see the event site. Very nice!
I'm not coordinator of this event, but an advisor...and this is a nice
place. The site is a new hotel and has a well-lit ballroom for display
area and is also very classy. There is a lot, and I mean a LOT of
And the Museum - they want to do an event that would be a display/expo
over a weekend in November (so far) that would be in conjunction with
their Star Wars exhibit, which opens in October. This is a project that
I am taking lead on and getting more and more excited about...as the
Museum is really interested in providing support ! I'm also looking at
help from other areas too. The slated date for this event is November.
I met up with Adam Tucker of BrickStructures while I was in town, and
gotto see his building area - one thing I will say, he's organized. And
his buildings are amazing. His townhouse is tall enough to house his
buildings complete, so they are in corners looking like architectural
displays. His star is about to take off with his building, and
it's cool to see his work being appreciated by so many.
I've gotten a cold from my travels from cold to sorta warm to cold
again. Chicago is in teh teens, and there is snow- as in about 8-10
inches. I love snow, but I can't see myself driving in a big city with
it. But then again, I'm getting cross-eyed with the taxi fares I have
had to manage. And travel time.
So what's goingto happen? Keep an eye here and on LUGNET...
