New Challenge Build – Vancouver Island!

This is a really different one – we are doing a cross-Canada collaboration project, and our LUG was paired with Mid-Island LUG from Vancouver Island. So we want to see some builds based from there!

This one might need some research on your part! They did give us some ideas and starting points though:

  • Vancouver island architecture: The Bastion, The Empress hotel, Coombs (goats!), Chemainus, Ladysmith, Cape Scott lighthouse
  • They are BIG on Outdoor activities biking, skiing, surfing
  • Fishing, Logging are major industries
  • There’s a lot of small islands, so they have a lot of Ferry Boats
  • Wildlife can be things like Orca, Deer, Elk, Cougars
  • Dogwood is provincial flower
  • They also asked us to stay away from Indigenous Peoples iconography – we want to be sure we are respectful of cultural appropriation here.

Due date is August 20, and we are going to actually bring these builds together for a photoshoot if possible (if it’s not possible, we will figure something out then). Submit pictures on your build to newfoundlug@gmail.com.

Happy Building!
