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.

Railfair 2021

Cactus Brick had a small display at Railfair this year.  This was at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park on Saturday, Oct 2nd and Sunday, Oct 3rd.  This was a free event and we had tons of visitors come by to view our display.  Here’s some images of what we had:

Bricks by the Bay 2021

Several Cactus Brick club members participated in the Lego convention, Bricks by the Bay, on June 18-20, 2021.  We held a contest for Lego Storyboard Films to help motivate people to produce additional content for our presentation.  We had 3 different entries for the contest:

JC’s Entry:   A Dragon Story

Peter’s Entry:  Grogu’s Big Adventure

Corey and Stephanie’s Entry:  King Ralph LXIV visits Maug

A special thanks goes to Peter for the great video work and to Jen for the great voice overs!

Bricks by the Bay 2020

We attended the Lego Fan based convention called Bricks by the Bay virtually this year. We had a one hour session where we presented some of what we’ve been doing while there hasn’t been any opportunity for display in a short video. We also talked about our trees and the landscaping standard that includes rivers, paths and oceans. We have detailed info on those on our club standards page.

Here’s the link to the video:
