This will be an exciting display year as the Vancouver LEGO® Club is creating "Blocks and Buccaneers", a high seas LEGO® adventure at the Surrey Museum from mid May to July.
The VLC will also take part in the annual NorthWest BrickCon, hosted in Seattle at the Convention Centre. Last year, BrickCon drew in thousands of visitors during public hours and over 300 LEGO® hobbyists/builders from across the continent.

I was the general coordinator for the 16th annual International Democratic Education Conference which was held in Canada for the first time in August 2008. Last year I was lucky enough to follow the conference to Korea for IDEC 2009, and this year, I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend IDEC 2010 in Israel, though I may get my fill of alternative pedagogy at AERO Conference in New York.
