Recap: July 2015 Meeting

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 5 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

Greetings fellow KC Brick Lab Members!

We have a very exciting opportunity brought to us from LEGO and the CEE (Community Events & Engagement) Team. LEGO has generously given the CEE Team many copies of kit # 40107 Winter Skating Scene to disperse among Registered LUGs without any cost. The CEE Team is challenging the LUGs to use these kits in a Creative Activity to showcase community involvement within the LUG Network.

We kicked off this event with some activities at the July 11th meeting.
The first activity for the night was actually an impromptu game of Lego Kit Jenga using the kits. This was an absolute blast that ended in crashing towers of awesome. The second event was a speed build of the kit. The 17 participants poised and ready tore into kits with much fervor and nimbleness to find out who was fastest. Ben Bracker and Nathan Schwabe tied for first and each was awarded a copy of kit # 3300020 Holiday 2011 set 1.


The second part of this event is a build activity. We are challenging the group to use the kit in one of 4 categories.

A. MOC using only kit pieces from one kit (do not have to use every kit piece)
B. Seed MOC using noticeable amount of the kit pieces
C. Group build only kit pieces. 1 kit from each group member. (groups are decided by builders) (do not have to use every kit piece)
D. Group Seed build using noticeable amount of the kit pieces
