With the February Monthly Meeting in the books, ConnLUG members took the opportunity to reconnect in person and online via our hybrid meetings. This was one of the few times since the beginning of the global pandemic that we were able to engage with one another for an in-person gathering. Many familiar faces, and some new faces as well, joined in sharing our love of LEGO with MOCs, MODs, and excellent builds.
January 2022 is right around the corner, and for our first meeting of the new year, ConnLUG will host a hybrid meeting, both in person and online. Member may choose which way to attend based on their comfort level. The January meeting will see the return of the set draft and the build challenge! Check out what's in store for the January Monthly Meeting on our events calendar.
Approaching the Holidays It's hard to believe that 2021 is almost over. Here we are, days before Thanksgiving, and the year wrapping up in only a few weeks. This year has flown by, as many of them do, but despite the challenges of remote meetings and surviving the global pandemic, ConnLUG has emerged as strong as ever.
The holidays are normally a time to be close to family and friends, to share in good cheer, and to reflect on the year that was. Suffice to say, 2020 was anything but normal. While we have maintained our tempo of remote monthly meetings and alternating MOC & Tell gatherings, ConnLUG is rounding out the year glad to be done with 2020 and looking forward to 2021 optimistically.
Summer. We made it. The sun is shining, the air is warm, and the smiles have almost returned to our little corner of the world. We've been through a lot these last few months, both in our personal health and in the health of our communities.

Find out what is changing and what is staying the same for the rest of this year, plus new rules to keep us safe!
ConnLUG has been featured on the international stage! Back in January, Blocks, a UK based subscription magazine for LEGO enthusiasts, by LEGO enthusiasts, featured a segment on ConnLUG in an awesome two-page article in its January 2020 issue #63.
At ConnLUG, the safety of our members, families, and guests is of the utmost importance and priority. We always seek to provide our members with a safe and enjoyable experience when attending our monthly meetings and other gatherings. As more and more cases of the novel Coronavirus are being reported in the US each day, we need to consider what is in the best interest of all ConnLUG members during this difficult time for us and for people the world over.
ConnLUG Members can now find a dedicated section for our Quarterly Build Challenges on our site under the Events section. The ConnLUG Quarterly Build Challenge is an opportunity to participate in a fun and friendly contest with other members four times per year. The challenges are presented in the public meetings that fall in the months of March, June, September, and December. ConnLUG members are given a set of instructions for the parameters of the challenge, and then have ample time to build what inspires them. During the meetings, members are invited to display and describe their MOCs, and the goal of the challenges is to then display the collective…
New Year, New Site, New ConnLUG Hey AFOLs and TFOLs of ConnLUG! Happy 2020! Here we are in a new decade, the future is now! We hope that you've all had a nice holiday and are looking forward to all of the fun and opportunities that await us in this new year.
ConnLUG is doing more than just monthly meetings now. While it is great to get together with awesome like-minded AFOLs and TFOLs for set drafts, build challenges, and set reviews, and we definitely enjoy our monthly meet ups and the fun that they bring, we felt that we could do more as a LUG.
