Upcoming SLUG events

Posted by adam dodge on Tuesday, November 20, 2012, In : Misc. 
Since the cancellation of the Regina Model Train Show this fall, it has been a bit of a continuing 'slow news day' for us as a group.  However, we are looking forward to a number of things we have planned in the next few months!  Here is a quick run-down of some of our upcoming events and programs for the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013!

Our next meeting!  This will be taking place mid-December in Meacham this year!  Our bi-monthly meetings are a chance to catch-up with one another, talk...

Regina Show: Cancelled

Posted by adam dodge on Wednesday, October 3, 2012, In : Show Info 
Due to events out of our control, the Regina Model Train Show has been cancelled for this year.

The reasons for this have not been explained to us fully at this time.  The group that organizes the show, the Regina Model Railroaders, hope to have things in place for a show next year.  A new venue has been suggested for next year's show.

We are disappointed that we will be unable to showcase our work in Regina this fall.  Our next scheduled show is not until February 2013 in Saskatoon, but hopefu...

Fan videos!

We were very fortunate to have a good turn-out for BRCIKSPO this year (1435 people as previously mentioned).  However, we never expected to find ourselves posted on Youtube!

A big THANKS goes to user sasklegoboy on Youtube who posted two videos from the show!  In the first video, he takes a tour around some of the tables looking at the creations that interest him.  The second video is a collection of stills from the show set to a hip-hopin' soundtrack!  Check them out!

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...
