The next meeting for PennLUG is July 18th. Hosted by Learning with Bricks at their HQ. Start time is 10 AM as usual. Additional festivities are planned for the evening hours. Please visit the forum or Facebook group for more details.
. A lot is going on within PennLUG group. We had a very successful showing at Linglestown a few weekends ago. We just had our June meeting at the LWB HQ which went very well. — Our July meeting looks to be held by LWB HQ again so it sure to be a fun time!
. Upcoming on the horizon is BRICKWORLD Chicago! Which I know the group has some amazing new builds and things to show off. It’s sure to be a grand event and display. Obviously this event is a little bit away from our home turf but it’s one of the larger central gathering of ‘FOLs. If your able to attend I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
Nate Brill will be hosting our March meeting on Saturday the 7th. Here are some details from him.
PennLUG March Meeting: Saturday, March 7
Address has been sent out via email.
11 to whenever. Lunch will be served, but bring snacks if there’s anything in particular you want.
We have three small dogs. They are pretty hypoallergenic, but let me know if you have any concerns about it.
Now, for the build challenge: The theme for the March meeting will be Space Exploration.
I have been thinking a lot about the history of space flight lately. This may be from playing too much Kerbal Space Program, but whatever the cause, I would like to see MOCs that explore the idea of space exploration. What I am particularly thinking of are space MOCs with a touch of realism. It could be a model of a historical spacecraft or satellite, or an original idea. The first manned Mars lander; a house on the moon; a space station – anything you can think of that might represent our past present and, let’s say, relatively near future, in space. Everyone present will vote for their favorite, and I will have a trophy for the winner, so get building!
Lastly a reminder that dues for subscribing members are due at the March meet payable to Brian Brister.
The PennLUG February 7th 2015 Meeting will be hosted by Cale in York, PA. More details will be sent out soon.
For this meeting I’m proposing a build challenge. The theme for the challenge will be Trees. You can build a single awesome tree, an entire forest (maybe a forest from an alien world) or interpret in any way you want. As long as it is tree related. There will of course be a trophy for the best MOC voted on by the club. So start growing those trees.
