BrickLink Building Challenge - Sign up for this challenge via your home page (sign up not open yet). The first 500 people to sign up will receive a bag of parts at the end of opening ceremonies, and you will have one hour to build a model.
Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! Building Challenge - Steve provides the pieces and you build a space themed ship/vehicle/mech. The pieces are mostly unsorted but there are some separated out “space” pieces. The bricks are dumped out on the table then it is pretty much a free for all for you to find the pieces you want to use. Steve may provide a seed part you have to use. The entry that impresses Steve the most is the winner. The uses of interesting pieces in cool ways, ingenuity, and color scheme all influences my decision. (note: you do not get to keep what you build. The parts belong to Steve)
