Brickworld will happen. If you've never witness a LEGO convention, this is one of the larger ones in the US. Details of the schedule is starting to show up on-line & it's shaping up to be a fun filled event this year.
On a personal note, we've gone to Brickworld 3 times out of the past 4 years & won't be going this year. :( Between changing jobs, other vacation plans, and Legoland FL opening up just around the corner, we decided to stay home this year.
