Northern Bricks at EEK

Post by adamsonofwilliam on Mon Feb 23, 2015 11:09 am

While at the Saskatoon Train Show this weekend we had a good time with the crew from NALUG who let us in on a convention they are putting together (from the flyer):

Northern Bricks at EEK

Northern Bricks at Eek Fest is an exciting new convention for LEGO enthusiasts in Canada and beyond! This convention is for Adult Fans of LEGO - AFOL to build friendships, share ideas and techniques, and showcase unique creations.

May 29, 30 and 31, 2015 in St. Albert, Alberta

Based on the information found here: http://prairiebricks.canadian-forum.com/t224-brick-roundup-2015, I am very much considering a trip northward.

Anyone else want to get a caravan going?

For those going...

I checked in with Kris from NALUG about displaying as a club. They said it would be okay if we did, we would just have to let them know how much space would be needed.

Perhaps if we asked for two tables, that would be enough to put a bunch of our stuff on it (including the GBC) but not enough that we might be able to help populated other areas with various other creations.

Either way, I've got the banner and stand and will bring it along.

I put in my information today, including our request for a joint table. I asked for 2, then read that they're only 2'x8' tables. We'd need at least 2 for depth, so when they get back to me I'll ask for 3; 2 for depth for the GBC, one more for length.

Hey!  A quick run-down of Northern Bricks, a week after the fact (I've only now recovered Laughing )



- a nice big space for all the displays and displayers with lots of walking and viewing room

- a whole bunch of awesome people to hang around with and get to know

- lots of fun games and challenges to take part in

- SO MANY cool things to see, both MOC's and not-normally-seen sets (2 UCS Falcons!)

- some freebie swag to take home



Worth the trip?

Oh yes!  The people at the show alone made the drive worth it, not to mention the good times, late night chats and free bricks!

Plan for next year folks... Prairie invasion?
