Hello All Bricks by the Bay 7 Attendees!
Thank you all so much for coming to our event!
In many ways this was a very trying year. We had an abrupt and late change of leadership, a hastily constructed new website, an almost disastrously late LEGO bulk brick shipment, three family emergencies among critical volunteers, another critical volunteer too sick to attend, problems with getting MOC cards printed and to top it off a fire alarm during the awards ceremony.
Through it all volunteer after volunteer cheerfully stepped up to take on new duties and make the show an unbelievable success. Games were played, prizes were won, Paul Lee amused us all, Dan Parker impressed us, David Calkins taught us and hundreds of creative and artistic LEGO creations amazed us. We brought in nearly 4800 public day attendees. Bricks by the Bay 7 was simply a fantastic event. I am honestly humbled by the greatness of spirit as people pitched in to help and the greatness of creativity as people revealed their creations. Thank you all for all that you have done!
I think we are all inspired with what we saw and what we learned so we can make Bricks by the Bay 8 “California Dreamin” bigger, better and more fun. We will announce the date as soon as we have settled it with the hotel and convention center. I look forward to seeing you all again!
Thank you again for your continued support,
President, Bricks by the Bay
