PennLUG is pleased to once again have our annual holiday train display at America On Wheels in Allentown PA.
We encourage young and old to visit the museum and see all they have to offer it’s a great experience.
The next PennLUG meeting is October 8th. Hosted by Sam & Vicki.
The August PennLUG meeting will be held on 8/13 in Lancaster PA. The specific details were emailed to forum members. If you need the address ensure you are a member of our forums (It’s FREE!)
Our next meeting will be February 6th. Matt Hocker arranged a meeting with an event tied together. Please RSVP via the forums so we can get an idea on head count as well as any MOC(s) you might bring.
Setup 8 AM – Meeting Time 10 AM – 4 PM & display tear down.
Monthly Build Challenge: This month’s build challenge is to build something from your favorite literary work, be it a book, short story, poem, etc. How you choose to interpret the source material is entirely up to you. There will be a custom trophy for the winner, so have fun with it!
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.
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.
Come out for the 13th Annual Red Lion Train Station Model Railroad Holiday Open House. Once again this year my LEGO model of the Maryland & Pennsylvania RR’s Red Lion station will be on display in the very station it’s modeled after.
PennLUG is pleased to have the opportunity again this year to display at the America on Wheels museum this holiday season.
