Volunteering at Manchester Public Library
Summer is in full swing at ConnLUG, and what better time to give back to our community. On Tuesday, July 12th, ConnLUG members were joined by friend of ConnLUG, Corey Schmidek of E.Y.E.S., to conduct an afternoon program of LEGO robotics, simple machines, and Technic® builder vs builder mayhem. Our AFOL team supported 14 TFOLs over two hours as they designed, constructed, and clashed in feats of monorail strength.

Restoring Our LEGO World
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.
ConnLUG in the New Year
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!
