And let it be noted down, that on the weekend of the 5th and 6th of december 2015, the first Brick Mania in Liege kicked off.
And your faithful one was present, though he just knew it for 3 weeks he would be attending after BM Antwerp :-)
Leaving at 7.30 with the president and his lovely wife, we arrived at 9 in Liege, at the `salle des Treteaux. Time to dust off the french, as we entered the hall which already was dressed up nicely.
Here is a look of the various expositions on show:
Of course, some traders where present as well to help us from our euro bills and coins.
And then at 10, the doors opened and the first visitors streamed in.
The saturday had a nice crowd, ticking off at around 750 people on the very preliminary first numbers, not bad at all for a first edition first day.
BeLUG has made a good first impression this year in the francophone part of Belgium, and I think we are off for some nice shows in the future in the southern part of the country. But I can`t promise though if I can sacrifice half a year of weekends for events thoug, unless they keep luring me with the excellent fresh Onion soup to keep me on my feet...
Yes, there was loot, and lots of it. I had the time on this Brick Mania to look around at the local traders for some loose parts, and grabbed from one trader a few pieces, a Max polybag and the Belville one (with some nice discount on top for the whole lot) for the teddybears.
The `Thank You` gift for this Brick Mania was the piggy bank set, that`s a nice one thougb i doubt it would get full fast ;-)
I had a bit of bad luck with the Super Tombola on saturday, scoring one of the small early prices with 4 bags of Mixels, but never the less I`m pretty happy with it. Joint parts, Glow in the Dark parts... good enough for me.
In the Dirty Brickster game, my luck turned, as I managed to secure this lovely set for myself:
The club also gave every attendee at the evening party a nice bag of Lego pieces:
But the true win came during the auction. For a measly 25 euro, I managed to FINALLY score me a Lego banner, and it`s a lovely one to boot with Star Wars`s Ashoka on it. I did not sleep alone that night :-)
The final piece was the event brick that started this report, so my badge ends 2015 looking as this...
