The next NCLUG meeting is this Saturday! We’re going all-out with the Pirate theme for Talk Like a Pirate Day. We’ll be doing a draft of Set #6240, Kraken Attackin’. If you won’t have a chance to pick up a copy in time, don’t worry – I (Dan) have picked up extra so that people can join in up to the last second. Further, the draft is completely optional – we’ll still be showing off what we’ve been building lately and planning future events at the meeting as well).
As a sidenote, Oberlin Rd is currently partially closed due to the construction on Hillsborough St. If you usually take that route to the Cameron Village Library, you will need to find alternate directions.
Here’s our meeting announcement from Carin, including some more info on the draft:
Cameron Village Library,
Room 202, 1:30 to 4:30 – Draft at 2:30, Set #6240, Kraken Attackin. (This set is in stock at the LEGO store in Crabtree Valley Mall for $9.99)
Yo Ho Ho! The theme of the month is PIRATES. Build a cool pirate MOC – anything you want! Such as a battle, like the pirates attacking the colonists, or a duel with ships on the high seas. Maybe an island with hidden treasure, or with a marooned, shipwrecked survivor!
We will also have a Pirate Set DRAFT. For those who don’t know what that is, a draft is where we all buy one or more copies of the same LEGO set, and we all open them together and separate the pieces into piles of the same piece. We draw numbers from a bag to decide the order for choosing. Then the person who drew #1 gets to pick which pile of pieces we wants first, then person #2, then 3, etc.
It is a good and fun way to get more LEGO for your collection. It’s a great way to get multiples of the same piece. Anyone and everyone who brings the set can participate. If you’d like more chances, buy more than one copy. The Draft will begin at 2:30. Please bring your set before then so all the pieces can be sorted and ready to go.
See you there, Mates & Wenches!
