After two member surveys conducted online and some deliberation regarding the use of the original CoWLUG brick-buillt cow head versus a LEGO full cow element, active members have moved ahead with the above logo for use in the upcoming Colorado History Museum show. The current view is that this will be a transitional logo. Any new graphic ideas for a logo can be posted by members to the yahoo groups list for consideration by the group. Thanks to everyone for their input and comments as we navigated through this process.
CoWLUG members volunteered March 23-25, 2012 for the LEGO Creation Nation free build event at Colorado Mills Mall. The event marked the grand re-opening of the larger LEGO store at the mall. Plenty of fans showed up to build with a nice selection of bricks and plates on small baseplates. Creations were placed within the larger “nation” on the floor. A special thanks goes out to all members who showed up to volunteer and to the LEGO store for providing snacks, drinks and some fun rewards for our time. John will be organizing the next event at Colorado Mills on April 22nd, a MOCs based show consisting solely of creations built by CoWLUG participating members.
LEGO stores across the country have started up the Community Window once again. Local LUGs may organize displays that meet specific criteria for a month long display. Within the CoWLUG group, Matthew Ramsey is organizing the window rotations for the Colorado Mills LEGO store and Reed Yaeger is organizing the window for the Park Meadows LEGO store. You can contact either of them through the Yahoo Groups CoWLUG list if you are interested in learning more about the requirements.
Nearly twenty CoWLUG members shared a LEGO-fied day at Mark’s house for the Colorado Mills LEGO store’s Brand Ribbon Build. For those who have never participated in this type of event, it’s basically a marathon, all-day build of LEGO master builder designed sets which are used for the display cases in the LEGO store. There is plenty of time for LEGO related chat during the session, as well as admiration (or in some cases – confusion) over how a build is designed. Thank you to everyone who stopped in to participate and a huge heap of gratitude to Mark and his family for hosting the event!
