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.
Members of ConnLUG joined Corey Schmidek of E.Y.E.S. for a special Monthly Meeting build challenge event - The Battle Beam Build and Bash. Everyone was excited to participate in this unique event and we were thrilled to have Corey join us for this exhibition of LEGO robotics, creativity, and of course battle bots! Veteran members of ConnLUG, new members, and even some guests participated in this mechanized MOC experience.
It was a scorcher for the ConnLUG July 2019 Meeting. On the hottest day of the year, members of ConnLUG came out to enjoy some fun in the sun at the July Cookout - Pool Party. While we crowded indoors next to the A/C, and took advantage of the relief that a pool brings, Chef Brian was braving the heat to bring our members the best burgers, dogs, and veggies around.
Twenty-three members of ConnLUG, including a brand new member, joined us for an excellent and relaxing time with our LUG friends at the June ConnLUG Monthly Meeting.
Over thirty ConnLUG members and guests met for the May 2019 Meeting at the home of the legend himself, Mr. Kevin Hinkle. Much fun was had, including our monthly set draft, set review, and the debut of MOC and Tell.
Seventeen ConnLUG members joined us for the April Monthly Meeting, hosted by Keller Williams Realty-Manter Realty Group in Glastobury, CT. Amid the clouded skies and rain drops, a bit of sun shone through onto the awesome MOCs that our members brought to display for the Monthly Build Challenge. One of two build challenges at the April meeting, the Monthly Build Challenge for this month required builders to produce a castle themed build of any style. They did not disappoint! You can see all of the MOCs for the Monthly Build Challenge in greater detail as well as additional pictures from the meeting on our April Photos page. One of our…
ConnLUG continues to inspire youth builders with LEGO robots at the Middlebury Public Library.
Twenty-two members of ConnLUG gathered at the Keller Williams Realty offices in Glastonbury on Saturday, 16 March for the March Monthly Meeting. Current members introduced themselves and spoke about their own history with LEGO, their likes, and dislikes in some cases – you know who you are Jack Stone fans – and mentioned where they hail from. We had three guests as well, including the parents of a very new AFOL in training, who enjoyed the NEXO KNIGHTS wheels as much as any of us! We reviewed club business, including the adoption of our new website, registration, and our chosen chat platform Discord, as well as events, both upcoming and…
On Saturday, March 9th, members of ConnLUG were on hand at the Wadsworth Atheneum – America’s oldest continually operating public art museum – to help families explore their artistic side through the medium of LEGO®. As part of the Wadsworth’s Second Saturdays program, a variety of activities centered around the theme of sculpting were available throughout the museum. At ConnLUG’s table, builders were limited to 2×4 bricks in blue, white, and green. Nevertheless, visitors were able to build some impressive creations. Second Saturdays at the Wadsworth Atheneum offer free admission on the second Saturday of every month. The museum features a variety of educational and creative activities in one of…
