MILUG Meetup in the Park, August 3, 2022
Our monthly AFOL (Adult Fans of LEGO®) meet-up is the first Wednesday of every month. Our next meetup is Wednesday August 3, 2022 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
We will be meeting ONLINE
OUTDOORS IN-PERSON (no online option) at the Beban Park parking lot (see specific instructions below). Rain is in the forecast and I could not secure a room in such short notice. Please contact us in advance at MidIslandLUG@gmail.com or message us on Facebook (@midislandlug) for the link to join the meeting.
This is an open event for anyone 19yrs+ interested in LEGO®. Any AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO®) is welcome whether you collect sets, build sets or build your own creations, whether you have been building with LEGO your whole life or are brand new to the hobby, and whether you love City, Technic, Friends, Duplo, Star Wars, Ninjago, or any other theme, or just building with loose bricks! Or maybe your prefer LEGO photography, LEGO stop motion, LEGO art, or some other aspect of the LEGO hobby. Come share your love of LEGO® with us. We love to meet new folks!
Membership is not required to attend your first meet-up so come out, meet our members (we’re really friendly), and find out what LUGs (LEGO® User Groups) are all about!
What to bring:
- Show & Tell: If there is time at the end of the meeting, you are welcome to share something LEGO related such as a MOC or set you built, or are currently in the process of building, a favourite part, a cool LEGO book, share your screen and show us some LEGO photography, etc.
We will place a table in the centre of the space to display sets/MOCs or other LEGO related items, so please bring something to show everyone! (It can be a finished product or a work in progress). Please bring a chair or blanket to sit on. We might be doing a build activity so you may want to bring a small table to build on, especially if you’re bringing a chair rather than a blanket.
ONLINE: via Google Meet due to the rain in the forecast. Please contact us in advance at MidIslandLUG@gmail.com or message us on Facebook (@midislandlug) for the link to join the meeting.
IN-PERSON at Beban Park, 2300 Bowen Rd, Nanaimo, BC (see photo below). We will try to meet on the grass (red circle) near the basketball hoops by the playground. If this area is being used then we will meet in a different part of the parking lot that doesn’t have any other vehicles (such as the blue circle) and park our vehicles in a circle. There are bus stops on Bowen Rd (yellow circle) for those who may be travelling by bus. ONLINE: Unfortunately the WIFI in the park is not strong enough to support a hybrid meeting so there is no online option for this meetup.
