Brickvention 2011 Roundup
Those of you watching the Australian Event news here at Brickset may know that I have recently had the pleasure of attending Australia's premier AFOL event, Brickvention. This year, Brickvention was held at a much larger venue compared to previous years, but incredibly, there were still waiting times of up to two-and-a-half hours to enter on Public Exhibition day! Even then, many people still had to be turned away at the door towards the end of the exhibition.
The AFOL group that I am part of, SydLUG, won the People's Choice Award for our Wild West display, 'El Bricko'. Congratulations also go out to the other winners at the event, including David Scalone for his rendition of Hogwarts Castle (pictured).
I hope to be in attendance again next year, and strongly encourage Australian AFOLs to consider registering and planning for next year's event.
