Members of SydLUG visited Wentworthville Library on 3rd October for their third and final Cumberland library display for 2018. A crowd of over 400 locals visited throughout the day, many of whom were experiencing their first LEGO display.
MOCs on display were a space police base, castle, Bricktown Library, trans towers, Power Puff Girls, Minecraft animals, themed chess sets and illustrated songs. Drawing inspiration from the display, children kept the free building tables busy all day, with some dedicated young builders working for 2-3 hours on their own masterpieces.
Having enjoyed a great partnership in 2018, SydLUG will continue to support the Cumberland libraries with more school holiday events in 2019.
After a warm reception at their first ever Bunnings family night last year, SydLUG members were once again invited to display their brick-built masterpieces at the Kingsgrove store. On Thursday 22 March, members of SydLUG put on a mini display at the free community event that formed part of early Easter celebrations.
Around 100 families enjoyed the carnival atmosphere with mechanical pony rides; balloon twisting; face painting; kids crafts, and music from the Riverwood Hornets Marching Band. To add to the festivities an Easter hat parade and egg hunt took place, and amid much excitement, a special appearance by the Easter Bunny himself.
With its family-friendly values and emphasis on fun and play, LEGO was right at home on the night – even situated in an appropriately construction themed aisle, surrounded by structural timber and plasterboard! MOCs on display included the ever popular ‘Trans Towers’, some clever optical illusion builds, creatively constructed chess boards and a Minecraft Farm that proved popular with many young gamers.
SydLUG is set to support similar family nights in the future.
