Bricks by the Bay 2022
Four of our club members (and 2 spouses) went to a Lego convention in Santa Clara, California called Bricks by the Bay. There were about 300 AFOLs (Adults Fan of Lego) attending and a little more than 3000 visitors on the public days. We put together a 12.5′ x 25′ large City and Train layout. We won the Best Large Team Large Display award and a Pop Culture award for “Looking to Pop Back” for Jennifer’s Muppet theater. Here are some pictures of that display:

Tucson Toy Train Show 2021
We had a small train display at the Tucson Toy Train Show on Nov 13, 2021. We showed our Tatooine display again, although we had to shrink it a bit due to the smaller area we had and we had one of our club members bring some very detailed trains.
