So we send along 6 of our most serious members for a day of entertaining the little ones.
Top Row: Kris, yours truly and Inge
Bottom Row: Matthieu, Wilfried and Saskia, who has just joined BeLUG 2 days ago.
Mechelen Speelstad basically changes the center of the city into one big playground, with a lot of activities for the kids to do, a lot of children orientated clubs and institutions present, and a podium with the Ketnet Band amongst others that brought live music.
I couldn`t make it to the other squares of the event, but the attendance, even though it was a rainy day, was really great, and the atmosphere truly relaxed.
Our booth included a variety of MOC`s, most but not all based around this years theme, Space.
And here are some, but not by a longshot or this would be an immense post, some detailed pictures of the builds, taken by Saskia:
While the event brick will follow, we did get some small freebies. There where goodie bags distributed to the children by the event organisers, and we knew it had Lego polybags in it. So I`ve put on my "smooth talking smile", went over and asked if they had some of the bags for 6 grown children. It wasn`t a problem at all, so apart from some glow in the dark stickers and such (the smurf loves them), I got myself an ARC fighter polybag.
We also got a small Friends polybag (the other choice was a Bionicle one) for our efforts, while at the Lego booth itself I snatched up one of the Club magazines, still a pity they don`t send them out anymore.
And now? Only 4 more days before I leave for the next convention on the menu, as next weekend our very own Brick Mania Liege is taking place in Cheratte. Expect a full report probably next monday, and maybe I`ll see you all there?
