item, it sounds like the logistics must have been interesting for the At the
Brickfest 2005 convention
, held at George Mason University over the weekend.
Grown-ups showed off their humongous Lego sculptures, including castles and spaceships. And the article even quotes the planner:
Event director Christina Hitchcock said about 350 people registered for this year's conference, and 2,000 members of the public were expected to cycle through the expo to see all the Lego creations on display.
"We've really outgrown this space," she said.
And one poor guy had TSA dismantle and randomly put back together one of his creations as he was trying to get it through airport security. Ah, the things we do for love.
