Attention US Registered LUGs: LUGBULK now available

Postby Draykov » Tue Jan 05, 2010 2:58 pm

More details over at Eurobricks. If you have a registered LUG and can follow rules, you may be able to get something going for your LUG.

You see, this is precisely why I suggested last night that the Ambassador program needs email announcements when new information is posted.

We over at QuéLUG were able to order the first time around (since our LUG is located in Canada), and I have to say that, although it's a bit complicated to organize an order, it's really worth the trouble IMHO. Even with the shipping and taxes, most of the bricks were only a fraction of the price you see on Shop At Home's PAB.

How about starting one? All you need to do is to find a couple of other LEGO fans in your area. You would be surprised how many people you can find in your area that, just like you, are LEGO fans, but just never heard of LUGs before.

Yeah, I've been a NELUG member since the club founded in 1999-- there are a LOT of people in the New England area who are into LEGO.

NELUG is an 18+ club (liability reasons), and we have a yearly membership fee of $20 (many reasons). And you have to be a resident of New England, or to have been a member in previous years (if no longer residing in New England).

As for starting a club, that won't help you immediately for the LUGBULK program, though it may help for NEXT year. You have to:
- have at least 10 members (16+, I think)
- have existed for at least 1 year
- do at least 2 public events per year
- have an official webpage

I'd suggest joining NELUG, if possible, although depending on where you are (sounds like you're in Connecticut?), there are some clubs in New York and New Jersey as well that may also work (LUCNY and GardenSLUG, as I recall?).

Yeah, I have looked at NELUG. It seems to cover way too much area and the site doesn't show a lot of activity. I guess everything only shows up if you register? I might try it out.

I have toyed around (haha!) with the idea of starting a LUG based in CT. The requirements for the bulk program are a little daunting though. I don't really have the time to host meetings, organize public displays and run a website right now.

Yeah, we don't always update the public "blog" part of the site, sadly. We do a meeting every month-- typically at one of the LEGO stores in MA, followed by dinner. Occasionally we'll have other member events like BrikWars or gatherings at the NH Millyard, or (seems to be more frequent now than in the past) various things in Enfield. We've been doing 2 Greenberg train shows every year starting in late 2000, and have expanded to a few other regular annual train shows since. We also helped participate in last year's KidsFest in Hartford, which will supposedly be a recurring event.

Anyway, the majority of the activity has tended to be in the greater Boston area, although western MA and CT have been getting more popular as venues.

You might not, but maybe if you get the ball rolling and put out some feelers, there may be a couple of people willing to share in those responsibilities.
