It’s that time of the year again! Family Day Long Weekend is rolling up fast and here at VicLUG, we’ve been itching to unleash our latest out-of-this-world creations. Feast your eyes on things that drive, swoosh, loop and sweep, and enjoy a stroll through your favourite Victoria neighbourhoods… in LEGO!
Join us at the Sidney Pier Hotel, Silas Room on February 17, from 2 PM to 5 PM, and from February 18-20 from 9 AM to 4 PM!
See you all there!

The website and forums are now back online. The website has a slightly different look (not too drastic a change) and some new features have been added. Some of the changes include:
Response design of the website and forums that works on laptop, tablet or hand held devices.
The forums look quite different from the old version, but much of the functionality remains the same
The old forums have been archived and are available in read only format.
An Events tab on the main website that links to a Calendar of Events.
Other features will be added in the coming days and weeks.
Thanks for your patience during the migration!
