It was fun!
About this creation

So after many years of trying, I finally made it to a Cactus Brick meeting.

The first order of business was discussing upcoming events/displays in town. Some members brought in their creations. And lots of chatting afterwards. For example, Jason built an 11-foot Super Destroyer that took about two years to complete and before the official LEGO set was released. He brought a sizable stack of pictures to prove it. I could only describe it as epic after viewing them.





A building structure by Christian.





A couple of spacecrafts by Tim.





A Polar Express dio by Joe.





Train.





Norm was trying to figure out how to slow down the speed of a LEGO motor. The yellow, rotating technic structure goes on top of a building.





Christmas candle?





Larry building the Mill Village Raid set.





An impressive technique by Stephanie to build petals and leaves with 1x2 clear plates and 1x1 trans round plates. They can be easily bent into shape and it's quite sturdy. Check out the veins in the leaves!





Proof I was there even if I do not appear in any of the pics. I brought the barrelman statue, synth, and a (not so) mystery build. XD

Quoting Dave Shaddix It's about time you managed to get to a meeting! I'm sorry I wasn't able to attend, they're always a good time and it would have been nice to hang. I've been missing more and more meetings it seems, I'll try to make the next one.
It was surely fun! I'll try making it again in Dec.

Quoting Cath Bailey I wish I knew if there was lego stuff going on nearby, I'd like to go to anything of this sort. most meetings/anything here I've seen are aimed at younger kids. is there a roadmap to lego meetings?
Try looking here first: http://www.lugnet.com/map/ . Otherwise, just google 'LEGO Users Group' and maybe you'll find one near your area.

Quoting Daniel Brilliant Holy Cow! Do you live in Phoenix too?!?! We totally need to get together. I would love to come to the next LUG meeting.
The next meeting is Dec 15 ( http://cactusbrick.org/events/type/meetings/ ). I'm gonna try to make it again. Maybe I'll see you there!

Interesting. Maybe there is a LUG group in my area. The trans leaves look like they would work as Christmas tree decorations.

What could be better than hanging out with some fellow LEGO lovers? Looks like you had fun! Loving those leaves and petals, very clever indeed. I must take a look at what you've been up to Shifu!
