My First L U G Meeting!

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , Jan 15 2007 · 295 views

LEGO
Well, on Saturday I went to my first Lego User's Group (LUG) meeting! The group is WAMALUG (Washington Metro Area LUG). I went with two 16 year old friends, and had an interesting time. I was able to talk with AFOLs young and older, and almost every new set was there. I was able to see the new Aqua Raider sets, some new Exo Force, a couple of Barraki and all the small box sets, and some new Star Wars sets.

We also played BrickQuest, an RPG using Lego.

I do plan on going back, but not until April or June, depending on when I have time. We'll also probable bring my System piece bins, and I'll bring some Bionicle MOCs, and we'll build there and get other people's opinions on the MOCs.

So, anyone else belong to or at least visited a LUG?

Oh, yeah, I signed their list, so now I get 10% off my purchases at my local Lego stores!

There is no LUG in the New Orleans area. I don't think there was one before Katrina, either.

I think I should join the Northeastern LUG.

But that means I would have to be on LUGNET for that. tongue.gif

I lurk on the SEALUG mailing list, but that's about it.

Actually, you don't have to be a member of LUGNET to join a local LUG. (I'm not!)
And it is definately worth it. Not only do you get 10% off at the local Lego Store, but there are other AFOLs (and sometimes teens like me) there, all discussing Lego!

So, Omi, join NELUG.

And Arpy, I would suggest going to a meeting

sorry, KIE. But you said you couldn't do anything

Actually, go to Lugnet and look on the map and see what they do have. Plan a vacation there and go to a meeting. Or perhaps one has started.

Better yet: Start your own!

that help?

Already did. They haven't gotten back to me yet. They take forever to review my account. ohmy.gif

I was kidding. I don't have time for a LUG anyway.
