Arizona Toy Train Show – Dec 7, 2013

We were at the Arizona Toy Train Show on Dec 7th, 2013 in Glendale, AZ. We had a great city/train layout and a play area for kids to build with either normal Lego bricks or with Duplo. Here’s some pictures of the event:

Tempe History Museum – Band Night – Dec 6th, 2013

We were at the Tempe History Museum’s Band Night on Dec 6th, 2013. In addition to 5 static displays that are going to be at the Tempe History Museum for the entire month of December, we also brought displays for their Band Night on Dec 6th. There was also a play brick area that was very busy most of the night. Here’s the pictures of our display:

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:
