Post by Octan on 7/10/2011, 9:12 pm


Welcome to Octan's Brickfair Blog! I be covering Brickfair and the days leading up to it, along with my own journey there. Here is the calendar of events...

There will be four blogs (During the event) that will come in this format: (Typo, the one should say 4th blog)

Date
What I did today
Pics from event

Before the event Blogs will come once a day, you are invited to comment. Classic Smile I will be bringing my Fabuland Village (Updated, but last seen here http://www.thebrickhope.com/t489-a-fabuland-winter-town ). A blog may happen more then once a day, or more likely I will update my OctansBrickBlog (http://dailybooth.com/OctanBrickBlog) Dailybooth if a major event comes up. My to-do is bellow:

I will update it as the event gets closer and closer.

Todays Blog:
I got back from vacation today.. I have purchased a large bag of packing pellets and finished the river and bridge. I will be in advance C++ camp all week so not much will be done, I hope to get the wooden supports done though... That is all for today, if you want to contact me during the event use one of the forms below:

•Email: Is on my profile

If you would like to see something (Pic of so-and-so) shoot me a message in one of these forums.

I forgot to order that. Blush I thought I did but I forgot to place the order, and now it takes up to four months to get a design by me order in the US. Sorry...

"Mathematical Mosiac Madness"? Sounds interesting, but the name sounds lame.
Anyway, Arthur Gugick is awesome, you should check out his MOCpages page.
What's "Wacky Racers"? I already know "Parts Draft"...

I have been going to Arthurs talk for a few years now, It is always very good. Classic Smile The math one I went to last year and was interesting, the speaker did his thesis on LEGO. Wacky Racers is when everyone brings a unpowered LEGO car and pushes them down a ramp. Two prizes are given out... One is for rolling the longest distance and one for the best crash.

Most of the time it is, but this year they are using a lame set (For drafting, no good pieces)

Just got back. Classic Smile The internet connection is so bad I can't upload more pictures until Monday (Takes too long). Classic Smile Look at today...

11-4 Public
Very good time here! Almost everyone liked it (Not the one kid who thought it was DUPLO, We fought for 20 minutes.) Classic Smile . Great time, check the Brothers Brick, I am in the video there. I met Jay for about ten seconds. Grin

4-5 Yard Sale
I picked up a ton on loot here for under $100. Lots of older things, lots of cheap brick! Classic Smile

7-8 Waky Raccers (Yes it is meant to be like that)
Great time! My car was a large white block, nick-named the wedding cake. Classic Smile It went 4.5 feet, the best was 29 feet. Grin Then I jumped it! That went up to the ramp and broke, the mini-fig on top went like a foot. Grin

Great day!

More later,
