Lego User Groups. It's like one of our on line groups in real time. A LUG meets on a regualar basis. Members share ideas about building techniques, talk lots of shop (and lots of smack), and will often utilize the group to get involved with community building events, or such as IndyLUG, organize events.

What is this "Real Time" of which you speak?

Easy laddie, it is never "enough". Here, go to this site, you could have done what I did and googled it.

There is the northern Il. train club. They are about the closest thing to a LUG in the area that I know of. Most LUGs have a "must be 18" policy to join up. If you meet that requirement, let me know and I'll see what I can do about getting you the info you need.

To answer your next question (if you're not 18), you need to be 18 to join most LUGs because we, as adults, don't need the responsibility of looking after a kid (I'm speaking generally here, so don't get offended) during LUG meetings. Some LUGs however will allow you to join if you're under 18 IF your parents come with you to every meeting.
