Lauritzen Gardens Show

Thank you for everyone who came to the show, all 1,878  of you!  Pictures from the show will be posted soon.

While our LEGO was on display for one day, the LEGO themed Nature Connects 2 exhibit, by Sean Kenney, will run from January 17 through April 26, 2015.  Information about the show is on the Lauritzen Gardens’ Brick Artists Expo page.

If you are displaying a MOC, please indicate this facebook so we can let the Garden know how many members are coming.  Setup will be from 9:00am to noon.  They have instructed us to unload our MOCs at the back of the garden (east side), NOT through the front door.

January 2015 Members Meeting

Please joins us to discuss all things LEGO.  New members are always welcome.

We’ll finalize our February shows, discuss the MOCs Union College would like our group to do and probably something LUGBULK related.

Lincoln members: we will carpool from the Cracker Barrel (north 27th Street) at 5:30pm.

December 2014 Members Meeting

New members are welcome!  Please come to discuss LEGO and see what our group is about.

Not-so-white Elephant

We will again do a white elephant gift exchange at the December meeting.  To participate, bring $10 worth of LEGO to exchange.  This could be $10 in parts, paraphernalia or a new set.  Please wrap your gift.  We’ll take turns (by lottery drawing) picking unopened gifts or exchanging already opened ones.

If people would like to bring cookies, snacks or drinks, that would be appreciated.

Nate wants the box/bags of LUG support brick gone, so please bring cups or bags to take home some brick.  We had been ‘selling’ large cups of brick for $10 each (proceeds going to support the group so we can continue to avoid club dues).  Perhaps the price will drop if parts remain.

If you are a member, sign in and view the meeting minutes.

HobbyTown USA Lego Show

October 2014 Members Meeting

Come join us to talk about all things LEGO.  New members are always welcome.

During this meeting, we will be selling large pick-a-brick cups for $10 out of our LUG support brick pile/sack.  For now, we will limit it to one cup per person.  If you do not have a cup, we’ll have extra to borrow; please bring a bag to take home your parts in.  This is purely optional and you will be able to pick your parts (as opposed to just a random scoop).  Proceeds will go to LUG expenses and will help keep our club due-free.

For those unable to make it to this meeting, we’ll bring the bricks to the November meeting.

Justin is bringing cheese frenchies and some pumpkin bread.  Please bring your own drink.

September 2014 Members Meeting

The September monthly LUG meeting. We will discuss upcoming plans, including our support of the Omaha Children’s Museum 2015 LEGO Exhibit.

Note the special meeting location.  New members are welcome, but please join our Facebook group for special instructions specific to this meeting.

Omaha Maker Faire Exhibit

LOLUG displayed some our creations as part of the faire.  Five of us made the trip up from Lincoln.  I would like to thank the Omaha Children’s Museum and the Maker Faire Hosts/Hostesses who were very helpful.
