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

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 are 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

By BrickScouter Ted / November 21, 2013

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, 😉

BrickScout Camp

By BrickScouter Ted / October 19, 2013

Scouter Bradley from Washington State built a BrickScouts (USA) camp at BrickCon in Seattle the weekend before last. Nice to chat with him again while I was there.

I love the swimming area floats and the Order of the Arrow ceremony.

Family Camping on Cuusoo

By BrickScouter Ted / October 10, 2012

Saw this little gem on the Cuusoo website today. A nice little family camping scene that could be made into a real LEGO set if enough people support it. I hope to get a BrickScouts set up sometime but in the meantime, if you like camping you might want to lend your support to this project.
 The tent design is interesting in that it allows for the tent to be opened as it is actually suspended from the tree. This adds some nice play features.

The barbeque and picnic table are also nicely designed but I would be a little nervous setting up camp right underneath a bee’s nest!

For those who may not be familiar with the site, LEGO Cuusoo is a site where you can share designs for a set that you think could be produced. If 10,000 people agree then the project will be given to LEGO set designers to see if it can be produced.

Mountain Guides Station

By BrickScouter Ted / January 9, 2012

As part of the Eurobricks Expand the Winter Village Contest Priovit70 has created a Mountain Guides Station including, ” 3 boy scouts, full of excitement waiting for their first hike in the snow.”

Although the Scouts look woefully unprepared for a days adventure on the mountain I am sure their Scouter is somewhere nearby making arrangements for proper gear

Missing Scout

By BrickScouter Ted / December 7, 2010

Hard to believe someone would kidnap a Brick Scout!

If you visited Baybrook Mall in Texas recently and took little Billy home please do the right thing.
