As we move into fall, the Lower Mainland’s adult Lego community is getting ready for a busy event schedule. No, we’re not talking the new Ninjago movie or about the Millennium Falcon release, although that set is certainly causing quite a buzz!
Many of our VLC club members make an annual trip to Seattle, Washington for BrickCon, and October 2017 is no exception. We’ll be showing off MOCs, participating in events and games, and connecting with other AFOLs from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. VLC members have a tendency to win big at BrickCon – our builders have won many Best of Show and People’s Choice awards, along with numerous category awards. Want to see what the fuss is all about? Head to the Seattle Center Exhibition Centre, October 7 & 8, to see an amazing array of Lego creations.
Next on the agenda is the Vancouver Train Expo, which takes place November 11 & 12 at the PNE Forum. The VLC display is always a highlight for visitors, and we’re busy preparing another exciting layout for 2017. Come see us, and cast your vote for the best display in the show – we’ve been proud to receive this honour more than once.
In December, we’ve made a tradition of supporting the Children’s Wish Foundation at the Van Dusen Botanical Garden Festival of Lights. We will again be creating a unique and eye-catching display, which will help generate donations and grant wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses. If you visit the Festival of Lights, be sure to check us out in the entrance pavilion.
Want to get involved with any of these events, or find out more about what we do? Connect with us on our Facebook page, or get in touch with our membership director at firstname.lastname@example.org – we are always happy to expand our community.
