By Scott M

Layout While most people in Florida take to the beach for Labor Day Weekend, the Greater Florida LEGO® Users Group was busy displaying at Florida's Largest Home show. Todd, Mark, Robin, David, Katie and myself worked most of the day on Wednesday, to setup the roughly 15' x 80' display in the Expo Hall at the Florida State Fairgrounds. The Expo Hall is a much different atmosphere than the Special Events center of which we are so accustomed...

By Scott M

Layout GFLTC returned to the 66th H&R Train Show in full force. The roughly 3' x 55' display took up the entire back wall of the tent, and was the longest display the club has done using the old wooden cases. This is also the first show where all of the track inside the cases was ballasted and all battery-powered trains were used.

Brickfair AL 2014 Event Report

contact Added January 15, 2014
By Robin W

Brickfair Brickfair Alabama was held in for the third year at the Birmingham Convention Center, but this time it was moved to the larger East Hall. This is the second time GFLUG has display at this event in Alabama. And the Birmingham convention center is well maintained facility and an excellent location for this event. Public attendance for this show seemed quite large, with the GFLUG layout having a crowd of two or three deep all the way around us all day Saturday. The Sunday crowd was not as big, but a sizeable crowd never the less.

On the other hand, the attendance of MOCs toting AFoLs was less this year. I am guessing the winter season was ruff on many of the planned attendees, because there were many cancelations. There were many bare areas on the tables and far less quality MOCs to see in the various themed areas this year. The organizers say they will work on getting more AFoLs with MOCs for next year's event.

The LEGO Movie - Review

contact Added February 5, 2014
Review By Matt S and Scott M of GFLUG

link Matt S - The LEGO Movie is a film that will simultaneously appeals to LEGO fans of all ages and those who love them. As an AFoL (Adult Fan of LEGO) and the parent of two KFoLs (Kid Fan of LEGO), I was able to enjoy the movie as both a parent and a fan. The song in the movie "Everything is Awesome!" will quickly drive parents and AFoL to the brink of insanity!
