Tempe History Museum July 31, 2013 Display

We were at the Tempe History Museum’s Wild Wednesday on July 31st, 2013. The Lego play area was a great success.

Phoenix Comicon 2013 Display

We were at Phoenix Comicon 2013. We were in the Exhibitor hall next to the 501st Stormtrooper area. About 18 club members helped with our display. We had a city/train layout, a microcity and various models on display. Everything was extremely well received. There was a lot of interested and we are expecting a few new club members. We also hosted a Lego Panel on how to start building custom Lego models as well as two build offs (one was 12 and under and the other was open to all ages). Both build offs went off better than expected. I’d like to thank Joe, Tom and Londa for donating additional small prizes so we were able to give out additional prizes to the kids.

Tempe History Museum Show Pictures – March 2013

Our Tempe History Museum Show (March 16 and 17, 2013) has been great. The flyers that we created helped attract quite a few people. The museum estimated that 150 people came out because of us. They had a live band on Saturday that also attracted a few hundred people. So, we had quite a few people coming through during the two days. Here’s the pictures from it:

Tempe History Museum Show – March 16th and 17th

Next month we will have a show at the Tempe History Museum (809 E. Southern Ave., Tempe AZ) on the weekend of March 16th and 17th. The hours are Saturday (10AM – 6PM) and Sunday (1PM to 5PM). This is the same weekend as our normal meetings, so our meeting will be at the Tempe History Museum for March.

Here’s the flyer for the show:


Display at Tempe Historical Museum – Dec 2012

Here’s a few pictures of our display at the Tempe Historical Museum. It will be on display until Jan 5, 2013.

The museum is located at 809 E. Southern Avenue, Tempe, Arizona 85282.

(and thanks to the Lego stores in Chandler and Peoria for donating the display cases)

We also participated in the museum’s Dec 7th event, “A Night at the North Pole”. A wild guess on my part is about 200 people stopped by our tables during the 2 hour event. There were a lot of kids that were very excited about seeing something built other than sets. (And no, I don’t know how many pieces it took to build the big building.) Here’s a couple pictures from that event:
