Recap of HILUG’s Fall and Winter 2014 LEGO® events.

The Hawaii LEGO Users Group‘s Fall and Winter were packed with events keeping us busy right up to the end of the year! We are looking forward to the New Year and all the opportunities that are ahead.

 

Our Fall included a huge event at the Hawaii State Capitol for Children and Youth Day. We had so much fun at this event watching people enter our vehicle building contest to help fill up our LEGO® built roads. There were so many entries we hardly had space at the end of the day!

The following weekend we were invited to participate in the Oh Baby! Family Expo, where we were set up in the Toy and Game Expo section of the Blaisdell convention hall. For any free build a person made, they earned a raffle entry for prizes given out throughout the day! We had both Duplo® and LEGO® free build areas that were both very popular.

This same month one of our members met up with members of NYCLUG as they exchanged their LUG showcase display at The LEGO® Store in Rockefeller Center!

Late in the year we had a blast at HokuKon’s preview event, a kick off to the full convention slated for Summer 2015 that will take place at the Hawaii Convention Center.  We are very much looking forward to this event.

Finally, our last event of the year was at the Navy Exchange (NEX) at Pearl Harbor for their Holiday sales event. As always we had such a blast with everyone that attended and saw some great free builds at our table. The Navy Exchange hosted a build contest and invited one of our members to help judge. We can’t wait to help out again at another event soon!

HILUG’s end of Summer LEGO® events 2014

We’ve been so busy this year that the last post we were able to make was in September! The Hawaii LEGO Users Group ended the summer with a lot of fun events! We never get tired of seeing old friends and meeting new people at our shows.

 

Here we are at The Pacific Aviation Museum’s Biggest Little Airshow. The crowds here were great and very enthusiastic. We loved seeing all the aviation related free builds for our contest. Perhaps the model airplanes racing by the hangar helped fuel the mood. Congrats again to all the happy winners!

We were invited to participate in the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii’s Day for Kids Carnival and we were happy to join and bring the joy of LEGO to the kids on the last few days of summer with a display and free build area.

That same weekend, other members of the Hawaii LEGO Users Group were on the Big Island of Hawaii for HawaiiCon. Here we were given the honor to attend Walter Koenig’s birthday party. There, we presented Mr. Koenig with a LEGO® built USS Enterprise built by our member Charles.
