Thanks! Looks like a great time was had by all.

Hoping to get a better idea of the display area and the visitors.

Display's shaping up nicely. Many thanks to Jim and Ludo for...
o Lots of help with travel and lodging
o Improvising a "blacklight theater" for my fluorescent tops
o Digging up a variable-speed strobe light

LEGO tops of many sizes, shapes, and colors...
o Tops to twirl by hand
o Tops meant for starters
o Artsy tops
o Battle tops
o Tops of unusual shape
o Tops with unusual behaviors (high-CM tops, etc.)
o Tops with moving parts (coax rotors, centrifugal mechanisms, etc.)
o Tops with built-in starters
o Optically active tops (surface generators, pattern makers, color mixers, etc.)
o Blacklight tops
o Strobe-light tops

LEGO top starters...
o Manual (with and without gearing)
o Ripcord
o Wind-up (spring-driven)
o Electric

Other LEGO spin toys...
o Gyros (pedestal spinners with CMs at tips)
o Fidget spinners
o Tippe disks
o Motorized chain swing amusement ride

Won't be long now-- assuming that TSA's still on the job on 1/27!

hi all hi jeremy
assuming that TSA's still on the job on 1/27
it probably will, it's serious business, unlike the cultural dpt at us embassy in paris
which applies the shut-down "stricto sensu"

no officials this time in Marines, if you can , bring a banner

thanx

Will do if weight allows. How about "Custom LEGO tops by incredibly sexy Jeremy McCreary"?
