My husband and I were invited to attend a OKILUG (Ohio,Kentucky, Indiana- LEGO User’s group) meetup last Saturday.
Did you know that there is a group for adults in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana that meets regularly to build with LEGO® bricks?
My biggest observation was that this club is all about community and sharing an interest in LEGO bricks. You don’t have to bring your own LEGO bricks or be extrememly creative to get involved with the club. There is a variety of skill and experience levels amoung the members. They gave us a simple project.
We put together pieces for part of the frozen lake layer for the upcoming show.
I first met Rodney, one of the orginal members of the club, with his mom at the LEGO Kidsfest in Louisville, KY. I recognized the logo on their shirts from an event we attended that the OKILUG was involved in.
What’s also really neat is that Rodney started building with LEGO bricks with his mom when he was 7 years old. This has been a shared hobby that has continued over the years.
You might remember some of the group’s creativity from the Shillito’s Elves Display at Newport on the Levee this past Christmas.
The OKILUG group is hosting an event that you don’t want to miss!
Here are some additional reasons for why you don’t want to miss the Kentucky Brick Expo!!!!!
*There will be over 5,000 sq. feet of LEGO built by club members. (That’s HUGE!!!!)
*There will be a youth area where kids can build and share ideas.
*There will a toddler area with Duplo blocks to build with.
*There will be a remote control area with a member that lets the fan participate.
*There will be a great display of Star Wars specializing in EWOKS! ( My personal fav from Star Wars)

Liked you on Facebook!!
We love to build Christmas items. Snowmen, snow flake and especially Christmas trees!
This sounds amazing! My kids spend hours building with Legos. Their little minds come up with the coolest ideas w/ Legos. My youngest son made Wally from the Disney movie, he used the most random pieces and it looked just like it and his eyes moved and belly opened. I was shocked cause he was four! Boys are amazing:)
I am a fan of you Facebook page
We love to build trucks and houses!
My boys are currently into building ships (inspired by Titanic) and will take them into the bath and see if they float and then watch them sink… over and over again. They are really wishing they had a Titanic Lego set but are making do with what we’ve got. My girls are just starting to show interest in the Lego Friends sets too.
Karen L… lol! We don’t like stepping on them either!
Sons love legos. They both enjoy making different things and using their imaginations.
my son loved the Racers set – the ones with the little rechargable cars
We love everything about Legos except stepping on them.

My kid’s favorite things to build are of the places/cities that we have visited on our vacations and road trips throughout the US. My favorite was when my 6 yr old son built his version of the White House and the Washington Monument!
