Who We Are
ConnLUG is made up of over 50 AFOL ( Adult fan of LEGO® ) and TFOL ( Teen fan of LEGO ) members from all over Connecticut and New England. We are spread across a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and professions, but we all share the same love of LEGO. Some of our members have been building for over 30 years and some have just come back to LEGO after many years away. Some are beginning to build with LEGO for the very first time. We are also the only LUG in the area that allows teen members, ( 13-17 years old ), to join in the fun. We are the hometown LUG for many current and former LEGO employees, who wish to cultivate their own creativity through building with LEGO. Our diversity is our strength and it contributes to the wealth of knowledge and experience that we share among our members. We welcome all LEGO enthusiasts, from all backgrounds, to join our organization and to enjoy our people, events, and benefits.
What We Do
ConnLUG holds monthly meetings on the third Saturday of every month from 1:00 – 3:00 PM. For our official monthly meetings, we hold themed build challenges, we draft set pieces, we have members discuss set reviews, we MOC-and-Tell, and we plan and discuss events where we travel around Connecticut from venue to venue. Our monthly meetings are opportunities for members and guests to express their creativity through building. We welcome all LEGO enthusiasts age 13 and over from all over New England and beyond.
We also have our MOC & Tell meeting remotely on the first Sunday of every month from 3:00 – 4:00 PM. This is an opportunity to show off our creations that are built with the theme of the month in mind, or just to share something we made for fun. Everyone is welcome to MOC & Tell us about it!
Is YouTube your thing? Great! We produce monthly videos that are released on Tuesday following each monthly meeting. Topics range from instructions and tutorials to favorite sets and set reviews. Sometimes, making it to a Saturday meeting is difficult, so we love giving our members and fans a way to interact with us when they have the time to do so.
We regularly meet at various times throughout the month for sorting parties, public and private build events, and just to get together with other members to discuss techniques, build sets, and create MOCs ( My Own Creations ). Our public shows and events are always a hit, and we love working with the community to display our LEGO creativity. We give back to our community by working with S.T.E.M. and children’s programs, participating in public displays, and by interacting with all AFOLs and TFOLs across Connecticut.
