Due to a scheduling conflict with the meeting space at TechShop, NCLUG will not be having a meeting on Saturday, November 10th. Please plan for our next regularly scheduled meeting on December 8th!
The Airlie Gardens display setup will be taking place over the November 10-11th and 17-18th weekends – please remember to contact Will Stroh if you have any MOCs that need to be transported so we can make arrangements.
If you’re going to be stopping by the NC ComicCon at the Durham Convention Center on November 17-18th, be sure to seek out NCLUG!
Members wishing to exhibit at NC ComicCon, please stop by the 10/27 meeting or contact Joe Meno for additional details.
Also coming up is our big yearly display at the Enchanted Airlie Gardens for the holiday season. The show runs November 23rd through December 22nd with specific hours available on the Airlie Gardens website. The LEGO display is amazing and there is so much these Gardens have to offer – this is definitely not an event to miss.
Airlie Gardens is accessible from I-40, US-17, and US 74/76 and is less than one mile from Wrightsville Beach! The address is: 300 Airlie Road, Wilmington, NC 28403
Members wishing to assist with the Airlie Gardens display, please contact Will Stroh for additional details.
The next NCLUG meeting will be held on October 27th, 12PM – 2PM.
Please note we’re trying a new location for meetings – join us at the TechShop. We will not be meeting at the Cameron Village Library this month.
TechShop is located off of Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh near the main entrance to Umpstead Park. The address is: 5905 Triangle Dr. Raleigh, NC 27617
When arriving, all you need to do is tell reception that you’re there for the NCLUG meeting and they will show you were to go. We’ll be planning for upcoming displays at NC ComicCon and the Airlie Gardens. Don’t forget to bring some MOCs you’re working on!
Going forward, we’re planning to meet at the TechShop on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
Upcoming NCLUG meetings:
Saturday, November 10th, 12PM-2PM
