Welcome to the forum. We have a few members here that love the technic side of the brick. And some that aren't into technic as a theme but use the parts in their mocs. Hope to talk to you more and maybe see You at a meeting sometime. I also never got the super car set, so I am thinking about getting the new one coming out.

The meetings are in different places each month. The last meeting was between Norristown and King Of Prussia. I can't remember the name of the town exactly. The next one is going to be out near York. Sometimes they are in Quakertown. Bascilally a member offers to host a meeting and thats where we have them. I actually live in Allentown. So if you ever want to carpool to a meeting let me know.

Here is a link to the new Super Car set coming out this year.

NevynPA,

Greetings and welcome. Congratulations on coming out of your "Dark Age" and getting back into LEGO. It is so cool your wife is into LEGO too. It is also great to have another Technic head in the club. I hope to see some of what you build for yourself. Do you have any Mindstorms?

I have both the Air Tech Claw Rig, which needs rebuilt/repaired, and the 8880 super car. I also have some extra wheels and steering parts for the 8880. I want to either build one in a different color or make something very different.

I hope you can make some meetings and that you bring some MOCs.

And welcome to all our other new people who recently joined our forum. I understand we had one or more newbies at the last two meetings, which I missed. I hope to meet you at up coming meetings and see what you build.

Mike Tighe

The meeting are always planned for the 1st Saturday of the Month. Sometimes that changes depending on the whats going on that month. The next one we will have an address soon to send out. I would definatly come to a meeting first before you host, just to make sure you can stand having most of us in your house lol!

Also carpooling is always and option if you want to go to a meeting but don't want to drive all the way.

Would love to see your photos of your trip. Post them up when you get the chance.

Hi, Francis here. I just signed up for the forums so I can keep track of what's going on with the club. For those of you I haven't met, I'm friends with Nate and have helped out the club at a few events.

Hi There! My name is Julia, I'm 23 and I'm from Pittsburgh. I was a Lego Kid and now I'm just getting into the idea of building some more intricate models as a grown-up! My Lego collection is pretty small, and I've been doing a lot of LDRAW models. Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hello Julia! Do you have photos of any of your models online? Most of us use flickr now, and there's a group for PennLUG as well. Many of us will be in Pittsburgh for Lego Kidsfest June 17-19. It should be a good show, so hopefully you can make it out there!

I agree. I especially like your skyscraper and church, but the ship in the bottle is crazy and by crazy I mean crazy awesome. Welcome to PennLUG. I hope you and the new recruits will have a good time with us. :-)

If you have an interest in Lego and enjoy talking about Lego then you will fit right in with the club without building a thing. We have a few members that never really built much before joining and now build some very nice things. Our next get together is on the 16th. Not an official meeting but your welcome to stop by. The next full meeting is second Saturday of may and will actually be very close to Philly.

Post  notenoughbricks on Sun Jul 10, 2011 8:18 pm

Hello PENNLug! My name is Brian and I go by the name notenoughbricks here and at flickr and bmwlego on Brickset.
My main LEGO interests are City, modular town and sot Space lines.
I am a founding member of I LUG NY and hope to learn a lot about LUGs and how they are ran, what the websites could benefit from having and any activities that your LUG finds fun and successful.
Met several of your group at Brick Fair and hope to get down to VA again this year to do the same. PENNLug had the best layout of any at the show and your models were the best in show in my book!

Hooray for Space! This doesn't look like a typo: "sot Space." Question Is it an abbreviation I'm unfamiliar with? (A guess: Do you mean traditional "studs on top" Space construction techniques, as opposed to the emphasis on SNOT and studlessness that has dominated AFOL spacecraft MOCs for the past five years?) My own Space building is mostly micro, where SNOT is essential.

Congratulations on organizing. Now we in Pennsylvania needn't field the occasional inquiries Smile from NYC-area residents looking for LEGO party ideas, custom builds, or show appearances -- we can refer them to you.

Until Wizard World Philadelphia a month ago, when a visitor to the DelVaLUG/PennLUG table mentioned it, I had no idea that NYCLUG and other local clubs had consolidated under a new name. And a regional pun, no less.

"SOT" is normally thought of as "Classic Space" where "SNOT" usually refers to "Neo-Classic Space". I guess it's a techniques thing.
SOT & SNOT space are more then welcomed around here (and needed).

Thanks for the warm welcome. Now that PENNLug knows about I LUG NY, maybe you guys will help spread word of mouth like you mentioned when people from NY ask you guys questions at events.

I actually visited the LEGO Store at Kings of Prussia Tuesday evening. Nice and friendly staff. I enjoyed speaking with Mikey. Small PaB wall though compared to West Nyack and Rockefeller Center. Wish I could have seen the Great Ball Contraption working in your LUG Showcase.

There will be about 4-5 of us from I LUG NY attending BrickFair and I look forward to hanging out with you guys again.

Mikey is fun. He and I had such a good time counting 1000's of loose green 2x4 back in April. He wanted to see the farm and all his green brick when it was done and he actually made it to KidsFest in Pittsburgh. Too bad the farm was in Chicago that weekend.

Hi everyone! I'm josh. I found this site from peterlmorris' flickr. I'm not sure where most people are, or where/when these meetups take place, but I'm interested to know more pgh based ALEs! We don't have a LEGO store here in pittsburgh, but i make the trek to KoP or I go see my sister near the Christiana Mall in DE.

here's a link to some of my creations - (even though I can't make it a hyperlink for 7 days) flickr.com/photos/sixf00t4/

Hi.

Post  Josh R. on Fri May 25, 2012 2:10 pm

My name's Josh and first I'd like to say thank you for allowing me to be a part of PennLUG. I'm 27 years old, live in Lancaster PA and I like creating anything involved with "city" and custom minifigs. I've been a huge LEGO fan for as long as I can remember but I kind of lost interest as I got older. But recently my two daughters have taken quite an interest in LEGOs and I fell in love with them all over again and decided that from here on out, this will be my official hobbie and passion.
