December 2012 Meeting

We had 14 people attend our December 15th 2012 meeting. We were a bit distracted by the dirty brickster we planned for the meeting. However, we had a few things brought in:

The melted Lego was in the Arizona sun for a few weeks under plexiglass. The micro contest was also announced (see the post before this).

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:
