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

Wow, it's been a while since I have been in snow. Don't get much in the desert.

Getting soo excited!
Can't believe it starts in less than a week! And we'll have snow too? Last year it only started snowing after we left Marines. Can't wait to see you all there!

It's snowing in Denver with a high of 22°F today. Marines will seem balmy -- if my flight actually gets off the ground.

Wilson Gomez from Colombia will be there.
He sent me this clip from the local newspaper announcing his trip to France:





Jim: he is trying to contact you. He arrives the 29th at 11PM.

Wow, few days not passing on the forum (didn't even took time to update spintricks enough) and so close to the event now!
So much spinners from all around the world will be there once again!
We're still preparing some new stands/targets with Emma, cause everyone enjoyed the "precision contest" so much last year, we should have proper telescopic stands on Marine's 2019...  :o
Sorry to disapoint some of you but the snow is already disapearing, but there're still some days to make it for real...  ::)
Can't wait, but I have to rest before... ;)
