Bricks By The Bay is a premier Lego fan event in Santa Clara, California (USA), that I got the chance to attend this year and participate in the GBC layout.
The layout started on a custom drain system over 6 tables, however, this was quite a compressed layout and I encouraged them to expand the layout onto an addtional two tables for the Sunday run. This made the loop easier for the public to see at the expense of more work cleaning up balls.
The GBC layout also won peoples choice (voted by the public) and I picked up “Greatest GBC” for my Mini Golf modules.
Videos and Media
My Mini Golf modules ended up featuring in a few different places including a piece in the Mercury News.
I also had the express pleasure of chatting with Norman Chan from Adam Savage’s Tested about Great Ball Contraption.
And Boon and John from Beyond the Brick filmed the whole layout (I’ll link the video when it’s released).
