GFLUG Outreach

Our LUG participates in many outreach events.  Over the years, these continue to include programs like the Community Window Showcase, assisting at FIRST Robotics Events, LEGO Build The Future, (LBR) LEGO Events and Store Builds.

Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Celebration was an an annual Fan Event.  In the years that it was based in Orlando, Florida, GFLUG partnered with LEGO Marketing to plan a specific Star Wars themed layout.  The Club also provided staff for the play area.

Festival of Masters

Festival of Masters was an annual juried Art Show sponsored by the Walt Disney Company.  GFLUG participated in this event for many years in conjunction with LEGO Brand Retail.  Each year, the LUG selected a Theme, and every member had to submit a build for the event based on the Theme and internal awards were presented.
