We held our April 2023 Meeting on April 15th. We had 23 people attend the meeting. Here’s a few pictures from the meeting.
We participated in the Lego Group’s 90th year anniversary celebration. Here’s the result of our club members builds (Special thanks goes to JC for the idea). This is using only 2×4 Brick.
We have a large display at Desert Ridge Marketplace. It will be open on weekends from Black Friday to December 16th. We are across from American Eagle Outfitters. We are open on Fridays from 6PM to 9PM, Saturdays from 11AM to 8PM and Sundays from Noon to 6PM. We have special hours on Black Friday from 11AM to 9PM. Admission is free and we have a large Mosaic build as well as a modular castle that people can build. There is a large Winter Village as well as a large City and train display. We’ve added a brand new Under the Sea section as well as a 1920’s city section in honor of a couple new movies.
We were at the Tucson Toy Train Show on Nov 9th and 10th. Our display was (for us) a mid sized display. It was 15′ x 20′ in size and had 3 different tracks with plenty of spurs for parking tranis. There weren’t very large crowds, but there was a steady stream of people coming by our display. Here are some pictures of our display.
Five Cactus Brick club members went to Bricks by the Bay which is a Lego Convention in the Bay Area. We put together a 25′ x 12.5′ city/train layout which included the City, Farm, Bay of Arizona and a Western Town (as well as trains). Here’s a few pictures from it:
Here is a presentation about Cactus Brick’s use of MILS.
