As 2014 draws to a close, one may assume from the lack of activity on the website SydLUGgers may have not been up to much. 2014 saw many new members join build amazing creations across all genres. At some times, there was a different show every weekend all over NSW.
2015 is shaping up to be just as busy. With so many shows on, you won’t have to look far to see some amazing Lego displays new you. Be sure to check out the calendar for all the details of our shows.
We look forward to seeing you at an event soon!
Thanks to everyone from SydLUG
