  1. Hi All!

    I joined ULUG on Saturday at the monthly meeting. It was an amazing experience. I got a T-shirt, a ULUG brick and was given a nickname. I met another GBC builder (baller) and was totally amazed at the builds everyone is creating.

    The draft was totally new to me. I thought you were auctioning off 4 Millennium Falcons. I was shocked as you opened them and started sorting the parts. It all worked out, though. I got lots of Technic pieces, 4 minfigs and my 6yo was so excited to get the instructions.

    I signed up for Brickslopes with the GBC build add on. Looking forward to seeing you all there and hope many of you will also join us for the workshop GBC build.

    I live in Layton, so I hope to be able to attend Hostlers Model Railroad Festival in March and see you all there, and again at next month’s meeting.

    Thanks for welcoming me with open arms and giving me a place that I can share my passion for Legos.

  2. I am a Cub Committe Chairperson in Kaysville Utah. Our ward did a Lego Derby a few years ago. We would like to do one again. We remember that we hired someone from Kaysville to come put it on. I think they were a member of your group. Is anyone in the group still willing to help out with a Cub Scout Lego Derby in the Kaysville area in October 2019?

  3. Hello! My name is Kendal. My boyfriends 30th birthday is coming up and I want to surprise him with a Lego set he has always wanted. It sounds strange for a 30 year old but he is a kid at heart and loves Legos. He grew up in Russia and came over to the United States when he was 10. He has told me a story a few times about him being a little boy in Russia staring into a store window at a giant deisel truck Lego set. He said he always wanted it but his family could never afford it. In doing some research, I think it was likely the Model Team Giant Truck 5571. Is there any place locally in Utah I could find this? I want him to be able to put it together so it’s not necessary for it to be sealed, but I also want a complete set with a box. I have noticed that this set is quite expensive compared to other Lego model trucks. Can you tell me why? Are you aware of any other deisel truck Lego sets made between 1986 and 1996? Your help would be greatly appreciated!! I don’t know much about Legos, but I think it would mean a lot to him.

  4. Hello,

    My name is Jack Little and I made a new Lego concept on Lego Ideas based on the 1869 Golden Spike Ceremony here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/95531

    You’re never going to guess why I am contacting the Utah LEGO Users Group. Yep, I need votes. I figure you guys would be the most interested out of all the LUGs out there, since…you know…the real-life inspiration for my set is in the same state as you. Any votes, Facebook sharing, Tweeting, etc. will be very helpful.

    Thank you for reading,

    Jack E. Little, III

  5. Hello!
    I am working on a research paper for my Masters in Library and Information Science. For this paper we chose an “information community” and we get to gather research about our community and how they collect and share information. I’ve chosen the AFoL community and I’m excited to learn more about you. I’m a LEGO fan as well (wish I had more time to create) and so if there is anyone in particular that would like to respond to this message and tell me more about your group, members, and how you collect and share information I would greatly appreciate it. I will not be including names (unless you want me to) I respect your privacy.

    Any help is much appreciated, thank you! Also, I have a short write up due this sunday about this and how it’s coming, so if anyone is available in the next day or two I’m doubly appreciative. Thank you, I look forward to getting to know your community better =)

  7. UtahLUG.org members,
    As the son of a former Thiokol solid rocket motor engineer I would like to invite you all to come and visit booth 3006 at Comicon of 16 year old Texan Evan Bacon. Evan is one of the top lifesize brick sculptors in the world. He specializes in comic heros and will have several of his pieces at the booth. Evans work has been commissioned to stand along side the works of Nathan Sawaya and Sean Kinney. He is really an amazing artist and enjoys sharing his craft.Evan looks forward to meeting the ULUG members and hope you will introduce yourselves as AFOLS when you come by the booth.
    Thank you,
    Brian Bacon

  8. Dear Lego fans,
    My Name is Ondrew Hartigan, Some of you may know me and some of you may not but needless to say I’ve been in the Lego train community for a while as the “custom track guy” and as a member of multiple LTCs.

    Currently I am working on a project to collect some basic information on Lego user groups/Lego Train clubs Train display standards so they can be shared. It is my hope that gathering this information will assist clubs in doing multi club collaborative events/shows. In addition to this goal I will be using this data in the creation of a list of Recommended Practices for people who are new to the hobby as well as for LUGs/LTCs who are interested. Please note: It is not my intention to change the way your club currently does things.

    In order to quickly obtain this information I have set up a survey which takes about 5 minutes to fill out. You can find the survey here:

    Thank you for your help, Ondrew Hartigan
