Hi Wamalug!

We work with the famed Watergate Hotel in DC.  We are interested in building an over-the-top lego installation for the holiday season, so of course, we wanted to see if we can partner with the experts in your group to make it happen!

Could we set up a time to chat soon?

Warm regards,
Heather

I checked out their website, seems like a legitimate firm.

The idea sounds interesting, but I’d be concerned about when they’d want this to be at the Watergate, how much time the project would take, and if their budget is reasonable for what they want.

If anyone is planning to have a call with them, I’d be willing to sit in on the call, just to help with planning and managing expectations.   I’m definitely not one of the most experienced LUG members in this group, but I do a lot of project management in my civilian job, and can at least help ask the right questions.

Also happy yo consult on a call. I’d be concerned about acquiring bricks and building in time for the holidays.

Sounds good to me if you want to head this up. I'm happy to participate, just need to know what their expectations are and what they want displayed. I remember Alamo Drafthouse contacted us when the hobbit movie came out and wanted something huge and offered next to nothing in compensation. We said no.

I agree - interesting idea, but I would need more information.
Short notice to build something "new" if they are looking for a particular theme.

I can coordinate a call with them, to see what they are looking for and see if it’s reasonable. Going to shoot for something in the next few days, via Zoom.

Anyone else who would like to be on the call, let me know.
