• Visit to BrickCan in Vancouver


    Jan Beyer

    This weekend I visited BrickCan in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It was a fantastic experience being back to North America after around 10 years and feeling so welcome.

    The event is stunning and very cozy -     around 250 great and super friendly AFOLs - I felt after the first day that I have made 250 new friends!

    I had the opportunity to meet with all 5 West Coast Convention Owners to discuss programs and future plans as well as meeting with 7 Ambassadors.

    This was truely inspiring.

    The event has a lot of very exciting and funny game and socializing activies, very interesting speeches and presentations as well as great MOCs on display.

    I enjoyed my trip very very much and I cannot give enough thanks to the organizing Crew around John Langrish, Allan Corbeil and Robin Sather and all participants for this awesome and wonderful experience and great time!

    I can strongly recommend to visit BrickCan - I will be back for sure!!!

    Thanks for visiting our beautiful city.   One day longer and you would have had even hotter 20C sunny weather.   Do come back and bring your family sometime in the near future.

    The LEGO-ized Canadian flag is what I had built based on a redesign of one Robin Sather uses (in Duplo) for his mall builds.   I don't have Duplo in that quantity, but hey, we have a lot of white and red activity boxes of bricks, that can be put to good use!

    Thought that flag looked familiar! Nice to see it get some more mileage! - Robin

    Jan - awesome to have you here! Hope you can come back again soon. We have an awesome LEGO community out here, and we welcome the world. The "Cascadian" west coast is a LEGO hot-bed, both for LEGO fans, and the general public. People out here love the brick!
