Three shows in three days for SydLUG!

October came to a busy conclusion for SydLUG this year with the LUG supporting three separate school-based events over the course of one weekend. Some members attended all three shows, which was a massive effort and greatly appreciated by the schools involved.

The weekend kicked off with the Shellharbour Twilight Fete on Friday, 26th October. This is the sixth year members of SydLUG have supported Shellharbour Public School with their fundraising by providing their creations for display, including the public debut of a Sentinel vs Wolverine build. This year’s kids building competition ‘Build a Scene for Your Minifig’ was the biggest yet, with over 40 entries.

Around 2,000 people visited the fete which also included stalls, rides, food trucks, and an ice rink.

On Saturday 27thOctober, the Ringrose Public School Fete featured a SydLUG display for the first time and the 2,000 attendees were excited by the new attraction which featured alongside stalls, rides, a silent auction, KindiFarm and chocolate wheel. MOCs included the massive All Star Arena and Precinct and the ever popular Bacon City. The school also ran a kids building competition with finalists being awarded by the Mayor of Cumberland Council, Greg Cummings.

To conclude the weekend SydLUG displayed at the Sutherland Brick Fair, where hundreds of visitors were treated to debut public showings of a Red Rocket MOC from Fallout and a Micro Manager Battle. The show was in support of Miranda Public School.

SydLUG was proud to support public education and assist these schools in raising much needed funds.

 

SydLUG supports Shellharbour Public School

15 members of SydLUG returned to Shellharbour Public School this year to once again add an extra dimension to their fundraising fete. The event was held on Friday 13 October, and this year was a twilight event attended by around 2000 local community members. SydLUG filled an impressive 40 tables with a wide range of displays raising money for the school through gold coin donations.

Exhibitors enjoyed the fun and relaxed atmosphere of the event and visitors to the fete responded well to the displays, some highlights including: a casino, a desert oasis, the Powerpuff Girls, winter village, Batcoaster and a large Star Wars lenticular.

SydLUG’s official LUG Ambassador to LEGO, Gregg, had the honour of judging the kids building competition, awarding the top 3 places across three categories. Perhaps we will see some of the prize recipients as LUG members in the future!

As always, SydLUG were happy to share their love of LEGO in the name of a great cause, educating the next generation.
