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.

This coming Saturday PennLUG will be at the Ma & Pa Railroad Heritage Village for their annual Heritage Day. Sept 26 10 AM to 5 PM
Cale’s Red Lion train station layout will be set up inside the general store again this year. Come and see us and all the other great history at the village.
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.
