Thank you America on Wheels

Thank you for another great holiday season with our town and train display at America on Wheels. We hope you had the ability to come out and see it and interact with the display.

The Museum remains open, however the PennLUG Christmas/Holiday Display is no longer up. Please do visit they have excellent exhibits and is fun for all ages.

PennLUG Meeting December 5th!

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.

PennLUG September 6th Meeting

Hello Everyone
My apologies for sending this out late.
Our September meeting will be held on Sunday the 6th in conjunction with our annual Labor Day party at my house.

Every year on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend we hold a large party at my house for all our friends and family. This year we have decided to combine this with our September PennLUG meeting. Many of you have attended in the past but for those who haven’t we will have plenty of food to eat, burgers, hot dogs, and all the other usual summer cookout fair. We’ll have canopies set up for shade and a few trees to sit under as well. Bring a chair along. Bring the whole family along, kids and spouses are welcome and bring some MOCs to as there will be plenty of people to see your creations.

Meeting starts at 11am but you’re welcome to show up earlier. Food is usually ready around 12:30/1pm.

Address has been sent out in our meeting email. If you haven’t received it let me know.

Please RSVP if you are coming and if you are bringing anyone along.

News and Events

.     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.

Keep on Building!
