SydLUG members have enjoyed more public show success in March, with around 7,000 members of the public attending the two events we participated in.
The month began with Cherrybrook “Movie under the Stars” on Saturday, March 2nd. This was the fourth time SydLUG has been involved in the event hosted by the 1st Cherrybrook Scouts. MOC highlights included Friends themed minifig habitats and themed chess sets. There was also a LEGO RC track available for young LEGO fans to test out their racing skills.
Over 3,000 people attended the night enjoying the wide range of activities on offer including numerous dance and vocal performances, food stalls, a dunk tank, a treasure hunt climbing wall, jumping castle, and face painting.
March 9thand 10thsaw SydLUG return for the second Illawarra Annual Brick Spectacular held at Kembla Grange Racecourse. Around 4,000 visitors to the show helped raise over $22,000 for the KidzWish Foundation who help children in the Illawarra who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability.
One of the highlights of the show was a massive castle layout debuted by three SydLUG members who had worked in collaboration to make something special for the show. Architecturally impressive were a MOC of Singapore’s Interlace building and the Australia Street MOC showcasing homesteads from different eras. Also popular were the vintage train layout, sci-fi battle scenes and city builds.
