The "training started" photo could be an entry for the photo contest.
The puzzles in the shapes of tops are a good idea as a different activity.
On the rest of the photos I see lots of interest, like in Marines, at Ludo's table (managed by Karine and their daughter). Many different ethnic and craft tops there. I myself got several, including my first Afghan top and some of Ludo's (Karine's?) very original creations.
Good that Emmanuel could serve as translator for Marco. But he always manages to communicate quite well just with his smile and a top :D

Here is a very nice and interesting video, it comes from a local tv, this guy stayed the whole two days with us on the week-end, made some interviews; he also filmed and put some nice effects on Attila's new world record:
Sorry it's in french...

Wonderful video! Makes me wish I could have been there even more. If interested, I'd be happy to donate some LEGO finger tops for next year.

Wonderful TV segment!
Excellent showcase of Attila's record!  8)
Jim, Quentin and Marco also did great.

Hi, sure that would be amazing! With some of them we could even make a special lego table (as part of the exhibition, avoiding people plating too much with them)
That would be also great if you give with them a small text to present them (author of course, but also you're story with them, what's the point of their crafting, evolution and so on...)
What do you think?

Also you have to know that Loon-plage festival is new and young and take place only every two years, but Marines' one take place every year and we share most of the exhibition between these two festivals...

When ready you can PM me to get a postal address, and we would take care of postal costs (maybe we can send you this ammount via Paypal?)

Of course this can also be applied to anyone of this forum members who could share interesting top-related stuff with us...

Read ya all soon!
