The meeting started with introductions where everyone talked about their favorite Lego book.

If you have a MOC you want to display, but haven’t already submitted it to RJ, please do so soon. The LEGO section of ECCC is already 60% allocated! RJ will send out setup instructions (where to go, parking, etc.) closer to setup date.
