Our annual July meeting with cook out thanks to Learning with Bricks at the Warminster HQ on July 9th from 11 am till 11 pm.
Fun, games, and club business are to be had. If you have something you want to show off please bring it.
Bricks on the Dollar will be selling bulk used LEGO by the pound and will have more available than ever.
The build challenge will be to build something that transforms. It doesn’t have to be a Transformer in the classic sense, but it should convert from one object into another object.
If you need the address please post to the forums from which the newsletter is generated or Facebook.
See you soon!
Our June meeting will be held on the 11th and hosted by Chris Edwards. As usual our meeting start time is 11am. The address has been sent out in the meeting email, if you have not received it let me know. Here is more info from Chris.
But first, Heroica!
If anyone is feeling heroic, I would like to run a game of my own special Advanced Heroica after (most of) the meeting is done. Probably starting in late afternoon sometime, and you can expect the game to take at least four hours.
Please RSVP to let me know if you’re interested in playing. There will be room for 4 or 5 heroes. Others are welcome to watch, but beware of spoilers if you do! Depending on interest level, I may need to use a lottery system to pick players.
For anyone who isn’t familiar, I made my own Advanced rules for the LEGO board game Heroica, complete with custom cards and all-new scenarios. It’s a cooperative dungeon-crawl board game. No prior knowledge of Heroica is required.
Please RSVP about the meeting in general, also. E-mail, Facebook, PennLUG forums, Flickr are all fine ways to RSVP.
The build challenge for this month:
Gardens or Space Gardens
Build a garden scene, realistic or fantastical. Yes, there can be snails in the garden. Or tractors. Don’t just slap a bunch of flowers on a baseplate, though–that’s too boring!
And as always, come out, relax, talk about LEGO and other random things, bring any models you want to show off, and have a good time.

The December Holiday PennLUG will be hosted by KC, and held at the NEW Snailtopia location, Sat December 5th, from 11 am till as late as you want to stay and socialize or play tabletop games. NO children under 18, NO dogs please, but other family members are welcome to attend. We have tons of fun stuff to do here other than Lego.
Address has been sent out in the meeting email. If you have not received it let us know and we’ll get it to you.
The build challenge is anything to do with celebrating Snailmas, the month long, non-denominational Winter Holiday where all snails and humans have a great time. It resembles Christmas a lot, with all the good food and crazy decorations, and fun gifts, but with no bickering about red coffee cups, or what Winter Holiday greeting is used.
We will also be playing “Dirty Brickster” the gift stealing/swapping game. To play you bring a wrapped Lego gift valued at $20 or more. Please try to bring something unusual, it makes it more fun. I recommend that you bring a Duplo shark, and see what happens.
I will be providing some food and drink, feel free to bring something to share, but you don’t have to.
Allergy alert, even though all the cats here live outside, the previous owner had inside cats.
I will TRY to have my winter monorail up and running, and an oval of 9V track, so bring your trains and monorails !
Anyone in PennLUG who places an order in my BL store, Kreativ Store,http://www.bricklink.com/store.asp?p=kreativsnail before this Thursday at noon, will receive 10 % off all parts, and 5 % off all sets, minifigs, or gear, if order is paid for with cash at the Dec meeting.
