Welcome aboard Toto! Sounds like the whole family is into LEGO in their own ways, which is cool.

Welcome (back) to the forums Toto.
My mom also chose some pretty cool sets when I was a kid (like an airport, a castle, and a Galaxy Commander :!: )

Our next in-person meeting (a chance to meet other AFOLs in person) is happening this Friday.

Hello VLC fam!

I'm a resident of Richmond, BC and having grown up with building lego kits, I am thrilled to get acquainted with this group of fellow builders. By profession, I am a Learning & Development manager at Arc'teryx, Vancouver's very own outdoor brand. What I like about my job is my ability to build and create, something that unites all of us that enjoy building Lego kits.

Many moons ago, I used to be a teacher (still actively trying to get back into it) and i've tried always to incorporate Lego in my teaching endeavours. Because of this, I certified myself in the Lego Serious Play methodology, which is a fun facilitation tool developed by the Lego group but which has been made open source since.

My reasons for joining the club are to look for opportunities to discuss and build newer lego sets (i heard there's a train enthusiasts sub-group who i'll be interested to know more of) but also to socialize the serious play methodology within the wider group.

I hope to see you all at some of the physical meet ups and take it from there!

Cheers and happy building!
Vin

Hi everyone,

Just joined the forum, I'm a relatively recent transplant to Vancouver. I'm a long-time AFOL, but this is the first Lego group I've thought to join, largely thanks to the sign-up form for the Lego Inside Tour, which I'm hoping to nab a spot at this year. I'm mainly into modular builds and have made a few forays into modular MOCs on that front, but lately I've been doing a lot of designing and building for Lego DnD/TTRPG play since some friends are really into DnD and Lego is a pretty great fit for that. Looking forward to gleaning inspiration from the community on new building techniques and Lego events and things,

Peter

Hello!
I am currently 17, so not quite an AFOL yet, but I've been going to BrickCan since 2018, and have also seen the VLC displayy at Fanb Expo the past two years. I live on the Sunshine Coast, which does mean that it is difficult to make it to VLC events, but it is possible that I might make a day trip in the future to check one out.
I love building mechanical and functional technic MOCs, including GBC modules, MINDSTORMS robots, and other interesting things. For most of my MOCs I also make instructions which go up on rebrickable. My current projects are a perpetual calendar, and a golf automata/gbc module. I'm looking forward to connecting with you all!
