Bricks by the Bay Answered

Howdy all,

The first-ever LEGO/brick convention for northern California will be held on April 9-11, 2010, at the Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley in Fremont, CA.

Planning is going on right now! 

Please see http://www.bricksbythebay.com for more information!

Thought to share



The schedule for the convention is out! 

Bricks by the Bay is just a couple of days away! I am conducting two presentations - one on brain research and brick building...and a second on holiday themes with bricks. Please come on down and check it out!

The website has a new look to it: http://www.bricksbythebay.com/

Tomorrow (Friday, 3/26) is the deadline for the block of rooms the hotel has set aside for Bricks by the Bay.  If you haven't done so yet, please reserve your room today!   Be sure to ask for the Bricks by the Bay rate ($89/night) and you will get free wifi in your room as a bonus (normally $10/day extra)!

at the moment it looks like knex is where it's at.

the majority of instructables,there are thousands of k'nex ibles but under 50 lego ones

That's because there are many Lego builder sites out there which specialize.  For K'nex, Instructable is one of very few (maybe the only one?  I don't know) which allow kids to put up pseudo-weapon designs.  Since pseudo-weapons seem to be very popular among the adolescent male fan base, a lot of them participate here.

i know that there are a couple of other good ones around the net and also when you go into tors r' us there semes to be mor eknex than lego

 I Wanna Go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
