Legoland time is here again, from the MWG boards, EC TK3446:

IL Schaumburg-Legoland Discovery Center FRI, SAT,SUN 3/8/13-3/10/13
It's that time of the year again. We're actually doing this event a little later than usually. Please post your name, ID #, costume(s) you'll be wearing, and number of guests you will be bringing.
Changing Area is in the back hall again.
Food will be provided again as usually.
Time: Arrive at 9/9:30 and be ready to roll by 10:00 AM. TROOPING ENDS AT 4PM
This time I think we should work in shifts. If some members want to start at 1 pm that would be great. If we can spread out our appearance a little more that would help them out. Just post if you plan on coming later in the day.

Location: Legoland Discovery Center
601 N. Martingale Rd.
Schaumburg IL 60173
Arrive and bring your tubs through the front door - the Discovery Center opens at 9:00am and you can dress/change in the store's back hallway.
All characters are welcome....
Imperials or Rebels...
There is no limit...

Updates will be forth coming.

Edit:
Here's the link to the MWG event planning boards. It maybe easier to sign up on their threads. If you do not access let us know and access can be granted to the events section. I will be updating the EC there as well.

Update 3/7/13
They have moved our changing area. We are now to change in one of the party rooms on the 2nd floor next to the bathrooms. It should be the only door with the clear glass being blocked so no one can see inside. The other room will be used for their birthday parties. The room isn't that big so be prepared. Lunch will be served as usual.

I vowed never to do another one of these...lol..

reason:

Last trooping event the MWG and NSB put in 264 hours of volunteer time..
and
Legoland made a dismal donation of $300.00 to their own charity of
Merlin's Magic Wand...


that being said..
this IS a terrific event for folks to bring their families to...
let's face it..
the price of admission to the Discovery Center is like $19.00...bring a few kids and that really adds up...

it is just not on my list of great charity events..

man, look at all the debbie downers... Mr. Green

guess i am a glass half full kind of guy...maybe 300 isnt as much as it could/should be, but 300 is still more then nothing?

they do seem to take good care of us while on-site with provided food and snacks...free admin to family...

last time i trooped it we also got free passes to use anytime, and the Lego keychain...

maybe its still "new" to me?

Just dont want to scare people away from a troop before we even start Mr. Green

lol...
no two ways about it...
after over 10 years of doing events...

I am jaded...

I just figure a big corporation who charges an arm and a leg for little plastic bricks and $19.00 a head to get in to see those little plastic bricks can do
better...

I will be there all three days (can only register for one at the top for some reason). Will be donning the Jedi robes for the first time this year since I highly doubt that my Porkins will be done by then

I might be able to squeak in there on Saturday.
I already have a meeting scheduled for that day with a customer so we'll see how it goes and what time this meeting turns out to be.
I just don't know much Embarassed
