I actually got to talk with the Master Builder, and he actually works in Enfield with GregF!
He organized the building of an 8 foot tall aligator, but the kids (and me) actually built the huge to-scale 2X4's and 1X4's and 2X2's and whatever else was needed. In the end it was pretty cool.
At the Lego store I got some Lego sets of course. Nuparu, Thulox, and Blade Titan. (I built the Bionicle) I also got tons of Pick a Brick. First off, they had clear studs. Second was black disks (two studs wide, one stud in the middle, I can't explain it too well). Third was jumper plates! Fourth was 2X1 white tiles. Fifth was 4X1 dark red tiles. And of course a bunch of other surprising stuff as well. (I got 20 of one brick!)
Best of all I got to meet two BZPers!

They are really nice and their dad is an AFOL and their mom is very supportive. They also have a little brother getting into Lego and they are one awesome Lego family!---Nice meeting you guys! I'm sure we'll see eachother again!
(speaking of which, they went to BrickFest 06, but they never saw me or Omi. So, Omi, next time (like at BFPDX07) someone needs to organize a BZP get-together time)
Well, that was the event. We all had a great time! (sorry no pix)
