Happy New Year from Southern Bricks LUG!
2018 was a massive year for our flourishing Lego Community, and what better way to ring in the celebrations by filling our Calendar with some non-stop Lego fun.
Just below you’ll find the first lot of events for this year, including one very special tease right at the end! (We can’t tell you much just yet, but what we can say is everything is awesome!)
First though a BIG thanks to all who came out to celebrate our Annual Christmas BBQ in December. Unfortunately I was unable to cover the event – good excuse: we welcomed Baby #2 into our lives (woo!) – but the photos were great to see posted on the Southern Bricks Facebook page, and everyone looked like they were having a blast. The team games looked especially fun!

Now onto the Events!~
Brickman Awesome Show – Adelaide – Jan 10th to 27th
While not a Southern Bricks event, it would be amiss for us not to mention that the amazing “Australia’s Own” Lego-Certified-Professional-Master-Builder Ryan McNaught is bringing his travelling ‘Brickman – Awesome’ show to Adelaide in January!
With over 2 million bricks on display and some of the largest Lego creations in the Southern Hemisphere, Ryan and his team look to have out-done themselves this time around. Looking forward to this one!
