LEGO Creation Nation at Park Meadows July 13-15 was a success, thanks to CoWLUG members who volunteered to help out at the event. Reed extends his thanks to everyone who made time to come down for the build and break down.
Reed commented on the break down segment of the event saying, “I don’t want to boast but I think it might possibly have been the most fun I have had at a breakdown party in a long time.”
See if you can figure out which CoWLUG member ended up buried in the brick pile above. Then take a look at the mishap to the left. Give us your guess as to how that might have happened.
Remember, LEGO always welcomes CoWLUG volunteers for events. As you can see, it’s not all work.
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.
