The Southern Bricks Community Builders and the BRIXPO Committee are extremely happy to report the inaugural Southern Brick’s BRIXPO 2019 as a resounding success!
A truly amazing weekend for all involved – from our energizer-bunny Organisers, superstars Jordan & Miller from LEGO® Masters, steadfast volunteers and right on through to our beaming exhibitors – everyone I spoke with had an absolute blast and a great response from an adoring crowd!
We did this with no numbered bags, no instructions – BRIXPO is the very essence of ‘My Own Creation’ – a 100% Fan-Built event.
We built it and the crowds came smiling and happy all the way through the exit doors. The Master-Building talent of South Australia’s Lego Community is truly something to behold!
We’ll have more posts to come about this momentous time for our LUG, but in the meantime let’s celebrate our BRIXPO Exhibition Winners for 2019!
