It is no overstatement to say it has been a busy year so far for the club. This past weekend is a good example of how we, apart from our major LEGO exhibitions, really are out there engaging with the local communities across South East Queensland.
Back at Morayfield
On Saturday, a group of BrisBricks members went back to Morayfield, where we had our big LEGO Expo a few months back, for the grand opening of the extension of the Sports and Events centre. It has basically doubled in size!
It is now a fantastic facility, now with 6 netball courts, and with the three new ones in an air conditioned hall. The mayor was appropriately proud to open the facility.
Apart from BrisBricks, a number of local sports clubs showed what they did, and visiting stars from Queensland Firebirds (netball) and Brisbane Bullets (basketball) helped to draw quite a few visitors to the opening.
We displayed a wide selection of LEGO, including Star Wars UCS (Ultimate Collector Series sets), a number of MOC’s with Super Heroes, a Tardis with the 11th Doctor (from Dr Who) and a few teasers of displays coming at Chandler.
LEGO prize draw at Lion Richlands
On Sunday, Stew went to Lion Richlands. His amazing Cyclone roller-coaster had been on display there for six weeks leading up to their LEGO prize draw. Given the prizes were all LEGO sets, the attendance obviously had a keen interest in LEGO and showed a lot of interest in the roller-coaster on display and or upcoming Chandler LEGO Fan Expo.
