Successful Start to the 2016 show lineup with the Coffs Harbour Brick Event

Our intrepid band of Queensland LEGO User Group members road-tripped south of the border to visit Coffs Harbour for the Brick Event there. We were joined by a local from Rainbow Bricks and set up an awesome little regional show.

Heard time and time again were words of thanks and “nothing like this ever comes to town”. People traveled more than an hour or two to come visit the event. On Saturday night we had a far-too-civilised game of partsies (where a group of people take turns picking pieces out of a set to take home), a build in the bag competition and Chinese takeaway, after our plans for a beach bbq were washed out by an afternoon thunderstorm.

Highlights were. The Faraway Tree, Chess set and Tower of Orthanc MOCs IMG_0003

The dinosaurs that escaped onto other displays ;) that though obviously placed, weren’t always noticed :O

Photo opportunities like “Be a LEGO head” :p
