It’s been a busy year for QLUG with a calendar of shows all up and down Queensland, Gold Coast was set to be our biggest and best show to end off the year.

With over 100 tables jam-packed with awesomely designed diorama-style displays, massive Great Ball Contraption and vintage goodness it was LEGO Fan heaven!

Thousands of fans flocked to the event to be wowed by the displays, chat to our lovely members, play in the build areas and shop for some must-have LEGO goodness!

Saturday night was a ton of fun, with awesome LEGO thank you gifts for our exhibitors, a round of partsies in groups and someone even celebrated their 40th birthday with cake!

 

There was also a hotly contested challenge to build a bridge that had to support the weight of a large truck, using only 2×4 bricks. Untitled

 

Here we have a photo of some of the lovely AFOLs who help make Brick Event shows great! Of course, we are always missing a bunch of exhibitors who make things for our group displays, but can’t attend and our volunteer helpers from the next day. We are also missing Bel and Karll who couldn’t stay because of family needs, but were kind enough to set up their Rocks Resort.

To all of our members who give their time and talents, THANK YOU! Without you guys there is no show. I saw such lovely community spirit and friendship all weekend. You should be proud of what you have all achieved.
