Micropolis at the GMLTC Open House

August 6th, 2011

The Greater Midwest LEGO Train Club (GMLTC) is the oldest of the local LEGO groups and this past year has found a permanent home for their fantastic display at the offices of BrickMania in North East Minneapolis. The new location has allowed them to have an open house on the second Saturday of each month where they get to show their layout to the public.

Recently they extended an invitation to TwinLUG to display Micropolis in their space and so we would like to extend an invitation for everyone to come see both the GMLTC train display as well as the TwinLUG Micropolis layout this coming Saturday August 13, 2011 at BrickMania from 10am till 4pm.

TwinLUG at SpringCon (May 15-16, 2010)

May 14th, 2010

Come see the creations of TwinLUG members at the MCBA SpringCon comics convention! TwinLUG will be bringing out an enormous Micropolis layout, a tremendous underwater adventure themed display, and a whole bunch of other fun stuff all built by from the creative minds of our members. Oh yeah, and there’s some really cool comics related stuff too.

We will be manning our tables at the State Fair Grandstand both Saturday May 15 and Sunday May 16 so we can show off a little bit and answer any questions that you have.

Admission to the event is $11 (or $10 with a canned food item) but parking is free. Click here for more information about directions and parking.

We look forward to seeing you there!
