February 2012 Palo Alto BayLUG Meeting
BayLUG will be having a meeting and show on February 25, 2012, from
11am-4pm in the Frank Livermore Learning Center at the Museum of
American Heritage in Palo Alto. There will be members offering LEGO
parts and sets for sale or trade, so bring your wallet.
Members: You may bring models to display, as well as LEGO parts
and sets to buy/sell/trade. Space is limited however, so you need to
reserve it using the planning wiki page, and you may need to bring
your own table(s). Watch the "chat" mailing list for more details.
Setup for members only will begin at 10:00am. Teardown will begin at
Build a town! We will bring everything-the baseplates, LEGO, and some
very simple buildings so kids don't get frustrated that they can't
build like adults.
The contest theme for this meeting is "Movies," in honor of the
Oscars. Build and bring a model that fits the theme of the contest to
enter. Adults and teens (12+) should strive for maximum realism;
younger kids are free to follow their imagination. Please provide an
index card with your first name, age, and a brief description of your
Examples of what might be suitable for this contest are scenes from
your favorite movie, models about movie making, movie theaters,
etc. If you can come up with a story as to why your MOC fits the
theme, bring it!
Models must be original and may not have been displayed publicly or
online, or entered into any other contest. Only BayLUG members are
eligible to enter, but you may join online prior to the meeting and
