BricksWest is coming up fast, and LDraw.org will be there in full force! Confirmed in attendance will be Tim Courtney, Bram Lambrecht (author of the original LDraw and LEdit Tutorial), and Ahui Herrera (LDraw/POV-Ray animation pioneer). We're still waiting on a confirmation from Leonardo Zide, local to the southern California area where the event is to be held and author of the LDraw editor LeoCAD.
BricksWest is a LEGO event designed for Adult Fans of LEGO, their families, and children of all ages. The event will be held in Carlsbad, CA, the home of LEGOLAND California. (See the BricksWest site for details).
