Meetings, Christmas Social and Fundraiser

Hey all – we have some upcoming things we need to schedule/discuss!

LUGBulk – I want one more meeting for those interested in our LUGBulk order – the deadline to apply for this is Dec 8th, so unless there is a serious objection, I’d like to have a meeting at the Store on Thursday, November 28th.

Christmas Social – We are going to have a small Christmas Social event this year, just a few pizzas and a few drinks – we’ll need to set a date for that, sometime in December. We will be drawing for some of our bigger sets that night!

Fundraiser – we have one of our activity Support sets flagged for a fundraiser draw for the LUG (specifically, it’s set 60228, Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control). I’d like to get started selling some tickets on that, as it would make a great Christmas gift!

October Update

Geekout is in the rear-view mirror, and it was a great event. I really enjoy working with the Library, and they said they’d love to have us back.

Going forward, here are some dates and things to think about as we wind down 2019:

-Nov 4 official registration opens for LUGBulk program, and will run until Dec 8.

-Nov 6 Build Night/ Meeting : no agenda for now, just fun.

-Ronald McDonald House event: we are hoping to have a night were people can buy/donate a small (<$20) set and we can go in and build with the kids there – it’s dependent on the mix of kids and their schedule so we will have probably a week’s notice.

-Christmas Party: We’ve had a little get together in years past, and we have some big sets to draw so we’ll do it then.

Anything I have forgotten, just let me know in the comments!

LUGBulk Meeting – Thursday Oct 10th @ 7pm

We will be having a meeting for those members participating in the LUGBulk program on Thursday, OCt 10th at 7pm at Bricks and Minifigures.

The purpose of this meeting is to come up with our list of 85 elements that we will be using to select our purchases from.

In addition, the Executive will be discussing the plan for this program going forward.
