I was lucky enought his year to be crowned the best in show for 2010 as voted for by the registered attendees on the saturday,
i feel honored and proviliged to win such a title given the amazing stuff that people had built, i have never in my life seen such amazing LEGO creations before.
Thank you to everyone who voted for me, i am truly humbled.
