Congrats to our QLUG LEGO Raffle Winner!!

Congrats to Diane from the Sunshine Coast for being lucky enough to buy the winning ticket to our awesome Gold Coast raffle. She was truly shocked, after having joked earlier that nobody else should bother buying anymore tickets as she had the winning one already. Little did she know that she was right!

Thanks to everyone who bought a ticket and supported us. Proceeds go towards the running of QLUG each year and all the awesome things we do for our members :)

Everyone had a great time from all accounts. To all that displayed, you did an excellent job as always sharing your creations and the show was wall to wall top quality. We even managed to assemble Bruce’s army in record time ready for his  Gold Coast Bulletin interview thanks to awesome teamwork.

We have a lot of people to thank who all did a truckload to get the word out about the show …. Firstly, behind the scenes our ambassador Jeff Snow has been working hard getting this show promoted in addition to all the things us admin do behind the scenes quietly every single day. We have him especially to thank for asking LEGO to post promos for us on the LEGO facebook page.

The LEGO Life app ladies :)

LEGO is also owed a massive thanks for all the goodies that we were able to give to our exhibitors thanks to the generous event support that they extend to us as a RLUG.

Big thanks also goes to Ross Cameron Allen and Glenn Davies who both did promo displays at local libraries, Steven Lilliman who did promo at a local Coles and everyone who did their bit handing out flyers and sharing the event on facebook. To all the guys that did the Kids Expo earlier this year, who also promoted the show and QLUG, big big thanks!

 

We want to also thank the MOST AWESOME Bailey Fullarton who seriously stepped up the group collaborative display efforts with his Galactic Asteroid Rally Circuit project that he took from concept, developed and coordinated with endless patience and determination. He designed the elements of the track, set the scene for the entire project and even encouraged kids at the show to get building these little racers.

Last but never least, thanks to Brick Events for doing the event management side of things, pulling all the elements together and creating this awesome thing we’ve been doing for 20 shows and 5 years now.
