Near Virginia at the end of this month?


For anyone in the Virginia area May 30 or 31,  Troop 39 and WamaLTC are hosting the third annual Scouting for Bricks event.

From their website:
Come see amazing LEGO® displays of castles, civil war scenes, Star Wars battles and hundreds of other creations by Fans of LEGO. We will also have LEGO Trains, Mindstorms robots, over a dozen specialized LEGO traders, and custom minifigures galore. Enjoy our hands-on family play area with over 100,000 LEGO bricks and DUPLO® blocks.

Sounds like a good time and helps fund camping trips and equipment for these kids.

BrickScouts T-Shirts

Check this out:





The  180th Pacific Coast Scout Group is raising money to support their Rover Scouts by selling the awesome looking design you see here. It is being offered in a wide range of colours.



This group and this product is in no way affiliated with BrickScouts.Org and none of the proceeds are shared.  I have however ordered one and look forward to wearing it to my next LUG event. :)

Turkey Roast

Today I came across this delightful little camping scene including a turkey roasting on an open fire:


This picture is buried deep in this post on EuroBricks but trust me, the fun details in the scenes are worth the trip.

Given that it will be Thanksgiving in the US next week it seemed appropriate. I think my next BrickScouts campout will have to include a roasted turkey. Although to be fair, I might include a bucket nearby with such a big fire in such a confined area, ;)
