LEGO User Groups in Ontario, Canada

Postby jvwinden » Mon Jun 04, 2012 12:18 pm

I was replying to a member of eurobricks with this information, and I thought I would also post it here in case people were wondering what LUGs exists in Ontario.


There are currently 4 Lego Groups in Ontario Plus one Ontario LUG

in Toronto:
- There is ToroLug, These folks concentrate on mainly sci-fi and fantasy mocs but they do dabble in a bit of everything. They meet either monthly or bi-monthly, Visit ToroLug @ http://torolug.com/ for more details.

- Also in Toronto is rtlToronto, One of North americas oldest lugs, rtl used to concentrate on Robotics, but the group has veared away from that somewhat, and contains members from all types of Themes. rtlToronto has a regular monthly dinner on the second Friday of the month at the swiss chalet by the kipling TTC station, In fact we will be there this Friday at 7.:00 pm.

rtl toronto participates in a few shows a year in the toronto region. Click here for the rtlToronto web site http://www.thepyroguys.com/rtl/.

- In Ottawa there is parLUGment http://www.parlugment.org/index.php who also meet monthly and do a few shows through out the year.

- In the Waterloo/Hamilton/Ancaster/Caimbridge/Kitchener/Orangeville/London/bUrford/Guelph area is WHACK-O-LUG (ok so we need a U town name...)
Whack-o-lug meets on the Third Sunday of the month at Angel's Diner in Guelph

(the next meeting will be on Fathers day! (if that is not a perfect excuse for the Dad's to get out of the house :) ) WHACK-O-LUG has members form all different building genres. Whack-o-lug has a relationship with the Toy Building Zone http://www.toybuildingzone.com/ in St. Jacobs and is currently in the last month of a 5 month long display.

representing all of Ontario is the Ontario Brick Builders or OBB, this group was formed to participate in shows where members from all of the ontario LUGS would participate. Currently OBB is preparing for BrickFetehttp://www.brickfete.com, Canadas Only AFOL convention which is happening in Toronto, On July 12th-15th.

I hope to meet you all one day, maybe at one of our dinners or at Brickfete!
