August 2012 Palo Alto BayLUG Meeting
BayLUG will be having a meeting and show on August 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
The kids' activity for this meeting will be to build creations for the
"Things That Fly" contest. Kids will build during the meeting using
parts that we supply, and then we'll have a vote to pick the winner in
each age bracket (everyone under age 6 is a winner as usual!).
Kids are also welcome to build models at home to display in the contest.
The contest theme for this meeting is "Things That Fly." Build
aircraft, spaceships, models of insects or birds or bats, or anything
else you can think of that fits the theme of "Things That Fly." Build
and bring a model that fits the theme of the contest to enter (or for
kids, build a model during the Kids' Activity as described above).
Adults and teens (12+) should strive for maximum realism; younger kids
are free to follow their imagination. Please provide an index card or
other sign with your first name, age, and a brief description of your
Models must be original and may not have been displayed publicly or
online, or entered into any other contest. Only BayLUG members in
good standing are eligible to enter, but you may join online prior to
the meeting and take part.
Prizes will be awarded for the winner in the following age groups:
Except for the under-6 category, there will be one prize given for
each age group. Only ONE entry per member, please. All members wanting
to participate in the building contest MUST show their namebadge to be
eligible to participate. If there are any under-6 entries, there will
be an age appropriate prize available for them as well.
The contest judging will begin at 1:00pm. All contestants should be
present at that time to explain their models and vote. After the
prizes are awarded you may take your model and leave but you are
encouraged to leave them on display for the remainder of the meeting.
