As part of Sheffield City Council's massive City Centre event we provided some awesome displays of LEGO MOCs in the Town Hall as well as activities on The Moor including Speedbuild competition, playbricks and the usual Fairy bricks Tombola.
We all had a good time especially those members nice and cosy in the Town Hall while the rest of us froze outdoors on The Moor!
I had the honour, as Sheffield LUG Ambassador, to get an invite to the Pre-Opening event of the new LEGO House.
It really is superb destination with so much to see and do. Whilst there I met many of the Master Builders whose work is on display there, including Sheffield LUG's own Martin Redfern, as well as many friends from the worldwide LEGO Fan Community.
Here are a few pics of the day.
This weekend we decamped to the gorgeous Guild hall in Hull for the Block Con event. SLUG put on some great displays and we all had a great time there.
Here are a few photos of some of our members displays.
The second house meet of the Technic Wing of SLUG went well. Simon's Great Blocking Crane made an appearance as WIP, we did a load of sorting and parts drafting and drank loads of tea and ate lots of cake and biscuits! Heres to the next one!
For this months LUGmeet we did something a little different: we took the SLUG on tour!
We hired a hall down in Irchester and all met up there to do some collaborative building using member Tim Ross' ENORMOUS collection!
Our annual display at the biggest City Centre Classic Car Show round here was our best yet.
We had tons of awesome MOCs and classic car models plus plenty of activities for the kids. Was a great get together for members as well as a fantastic free day out for the people of Sheffield. Heres looking forward to next year.
Fun and games at our regular monthly meet up.
Some nice MOCs and chat plus the usual excellent coffee and bacon butties with some new faces thrown in.
Tonight our Technic branch (STUG!) gathered for to part out some sets, show off some models and talk gears!
This was the first time we'd done a specific meet for a certain theme and as it went really well I think we will be having more in future.
We had been asked back to do another night of LEGO fun for the Beaver section of Greenhill 229th Methodist Scout Troop.
It was a pleasure to come along and help the kids learn to play well using some Lego System.
We had a 'Build-A-Car Bar' where the kids started with the same basic pack of parts then customised their car however they liked then took turns racing them across the hut to see whose ran the best.
After that we had a curated build following verbal instructions to build their own Beaver mini-model which went well and we finished just in the nick of time!
Overall a great night and we are already looking forward to the next one!
Minecraft was the theme today and all the kids had great fun building individual biomes that we then put together to create our their own Minecraft World.
