So BrickShow 2008 has been announced. If you're following LEGO events, it's the weekend directly following BrickFair in DC. Which BrickFair is over Labor Day weekend... The events will be about 6 driving hours apart -- I should know, I've driven it a few times -- so if you live in the north-east United States, you might be able to attend both events, time and money permitting.
I'm not going to bad mouth Dan. I admire his gumption, but I think his energy can be better channeled. I can understand his "bigger picture" view -- to promote his museum -- but I think he's putting the cart before the horse in this case. I don't think I'll be going to BrickShow, but I wish him well with his venture.
