Moose Jaw Train Show vs. Weather

Posted by adam dodge on Saturday, March 23, 2013, In : Show Info 
It is with great disappointment that we've had to pull out of this years Thunder Creek Model Train Show in Moose Jaw.  It is being held this weekend at the Western Development Museum and since we've been attending, has become one of our favourite shows.

Our reasons for not going are due to the weather.  Over the past week the province has been hit with a great deal of snow and wind which has made parts of the trans-Canada highway (the main route from Regina to Moose Jaw) near-impassable.


We h...

This past weekend was BRICKSPO, our first solo showcase!

We had twelve builder's invovled in this year's show and over 270 creations!  It's difficult to say for sure, but hundreds of thousands of bricks were on display for everyone to see.

We weren't too sure how many people would come out to see us, frankly, we would've been pleased with a turnout of family and friends.  After the two day event, the Western Development Museum let us know that 1,435 people came through the door!

As well, we were...

This weekend, SLUG will be taking part in the Prince Albert Train and Hobby Show!  This is the show's second year, and our second year at it!

With this show being a "train AND hobby" show, we are able to further break away from a single, large, train-based layout and showcase more of our individual creations!  We will still have a couple of train loops represented of course, but there will be three other tables FULL of creations by our AFOL's!

Regina Train Show - postgame

Posted by adam dodge on Monday, October 17, 2011, In : Show Info 
Best.  Show.  Ever.

Without a doubt, this past show was our best to date!  Not only did we have more of our own members in attendance (8), but we were all able to hang around our largest layout to date!

The over 200 square feet came together nicely when set-up, with only one small hiccup.  Each table blended well into the next, yet showed off the diverse building talents of ever memeber of our group.  We recieved many comments about the build from other attendees and the public.  Overall, it wa...
