We’re in the last couple hours of the Colorado Mills MOCs Show scheduled to celebrate the grand re-opening of the LEGO store here at the mall. As you can see, there are a variety of builds on display by a handful of members who came out to participate – including a new member showing for the first time! Yay!
A small monorail display and practice run-through is up and running, thanks to Mark, Ryan and Imagine. Thank you to Shawn for bringing his large Statue of Liberty, snagged at the last minute to support the tracks! Ian’s train drag races are also up and running for hours of programming and racing fun.
Once setup was complete, members have been taking turns building from bins of brick Mark provided, to complete some items for the Make-A-Wish Foundation build. Thanks to everyone for dedicating some time to helping out! Finally, a huge thank you to John for organizing the show and for being a part of CoWLUG. We’re going to miss you after you move.
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.
