PortLUG was invited back to Wonder Northwest to host another LEGO room. While the LEGO room was off the beaten path, Billy Galaxy made several awesome huge signs to guide attendees to us. Like last time we had a small table display of MOCs, as well as a free build area, with bricks provided by Angel. In addition we had gaming tables where people could play several LEGO games we brought. The undisputed favorite of the convention was Heroica.
Scott Kirkwood and I also hosted a LEGO panel, which was very well received. The topic was coming out of your LEGO Dark Age. If the number of new PortLUG members that have joined the mailing list over the weekend are any indication, I think the entire thing was a success.
I want to thank several people.
First and foremost Billy Galaxy for putting on Wonder Northwest, and for inviting PortLUG back for a second year. Billy Galaxy is one of weird people who is both super organized, and super friendly.
Aditionally I want to thank fellow PortLUGers - Cory Jansen for bringing his awesome steampunk airship (pictured above), printing fliers for Bricks Cascade, and just generally being a huge help watching the LEGO room. Kyle Smith for helping me finish the Scorpion on time by helping locate parts in my disorganized LEGO room, and graciously building "Fourteen of these, and seven of these", and for carpooling and helping carry and set up all my stuff. Scott Kirkwood for helping with the LEGO room, and especially for writing and and assembling the Powerpoint presentation for our LEGO discussion panel.
Lastly I want to thank Angel of Guardian Games for introducing us to Wonder Northwest last year, and for being an all around great friend. PortLUG wouldn't have nearly as many shows without her. I also want to thank Dangerous Kids .Net for inviting us to their Wonder NW Podcast and letting us plug Bricks Cascade (May 31-June 3)
Come on out to Bricks Cascade to see Cory's Airship, and the Scorpion in person, as well as hundreds of other awesome LEGO creations.
