Since I first learned about ULUG, and LEGO, I’ve wanted a LEGO store in Utah, and rumors have come and gone telling of a great future where a LEGO store will come and my savings will be completed, but so far nothing. ULUG has gone so far as to ask LEGO if there are plans to bring a store to Utah, and the best answer we’ve gotten was an email about how that information is treated as very sensitive, and is not released.
So Here’s what to do, Visit this facebook page and add your support to the petition for a LEGO Store, and then while We’re patiently waiting for news, or a confirmation, break out your LEGO Bricks, and has decide to host a mini model building challenge, where you are to build a model that could be given away as part of a LEGO Store opening when one does come to Utah.
Here are the Rules:
We all would like to see Lego open a store in Utah, so let’s imagine they are and you are commissioned to design the grand opening set.
50-150 pieces. No licensed theme parts – think Pick-a-Brick.
See http://www.brickset.com/browse/themes/?theme=LEGO%20Store%20Grand%20Opening%20Set for ideas.

10 dark orange or trans-black 6×1 slopes or

February 29, 2012. Winner to be announced at the Hostler’s show. Judging will be by the Flickr group moderators and administrator (who are allowed to enter; ties go to regular members).
We are however still hopefully waiting, Maybe the City Creek Center with all of it’s high end shops can attract enough high end clientele to raise the Utah Demographic enough for a store.
