April has always been a month of family fun events for SydLUG with Easter and holiday celebrations to be part of – 2019 was no exception! We kicked off with an Easter Family Night at Kingsgrove Bunnings store on April 11th. MOC highlights included a brick-built version of an actual Bunnings store; Minecraft chickens with Easter eggs; an Easter Bunny maxifig and cube apartment creations.
The event was well-attended by families who enjoyed the other activities on offer including slot cars; video games; clown heads; a jumping castle; crafts and face painting. SydLUG will return to Bunnings for a Mother’s Day family night on May 9th.
SydLUG helped herald the end of the school holidays by appearing at Figtree Anglican Church Fun Day, on April 29th. The MOCs on display were a highlight of the event which had a LEGO® theme.
Over 30 members of SydLUG also joined members of other LUGs to display at the Sydney Brick Show held on the weekend of 6-7th April in Penrith. Three members were among the show’s award recipients:
‘AFOL’s Choice’ – Max for his incredible build ‘Fallout’ Vault and Wasteland
‘Outstanding MOC’ – Sam Wright for his beautifully detailed ‘Destiny 2’ model
‘Outstanding MOC’ – Nigel for his impressive creation Watchtower at Daggerford
Other MOC highlights included the city collaboration, spirographs, Disney Cars and WWII builds.
