It’s that time of the year again to buy, sell, trade LEGO with your fellow LUGians!
It’s our club’s annual swap meet. Bring your new or used sets, figs, and parts that you want to sell, and cash to buy something new. Sellers should bring a folding table as well. New members are welcome to participate.
We’ll also have 4 sets for auction to raise funds for the club. We have 2 blue Cargo Trains, and 2 Helicarriers. All are missing the boxes, instructions and stickers. Min bid is only half the MSRP ($100 each for the trains, or $175 each for the Helicarriers)
*You must be a participating member to bid, and your bid is considered a club donation. The sets may not be resold outside of the club.
These are some of the MOCs that people brought. Tonight we worked on some of the planning for one of our largest yearly displays, ComicCon. Also talked about some of the other upcoming displays and events. Tonight’s activity was learning how to use BlueBrick to design layouts and mountain building 101. See you next month.

Join others that share your passion of LEGO. Hear about what the club is up to over the next couple months.
