By in Australia,

I don't think you have read the announcement fairly.

Some things you may have missed.

- the public days are now over two days.

- tickets are now available online rather than at the door and if you go to purchase them you will notice there are entry times and that each entry time is capped to a maximum amount.

Some things not said are,

- the exhibition space has been increased, at much cost to almost the entire Town Hall.

- the sellers, kids play area and the kiosk have been moved to the lower floor.

- the problem of people having to exit the venue through the people in the queue has been solved with the exit door on the lower level.

Believe me when I say the Organising Committee is more than aware of the overwhelming success of last year’s event and the crowds that ensured and have done much work and taken great pains to ensure that the difficulties with Brickvention 2011 are not repeated with Brickvention 2012.

As for the venue, the preferred venue for 2012, was not available due to renovation but good news we have secured The Royal Exhibition Building for 2013. So we need everyone's support to ensure 2012 is a great event so that we can make 2013 an even better one.
