2020 Meetings

June 20 Meeting:  Fourteen members of Houston Brick Club joined an online meeting for two hours.  Several members showed completed or in-progress MOCs.  There was a lot of discussion about rare parts, cleaning and polishing LEGO® bricks, and much more.  We had so much fun chatting that no one took any screenshots!

 

May 2 Meeting:  Houston Brick Club held its third online meeting, and 20 members participated.  The build challenge was to create a flower or tree – several members showed what they had made.  One clever MOC used barrel pieces for the trunk of a tree.

One member showed a couple in-progress images of his San Jacinto Monument project.  Another showed computer renderings of a landscape he is designing.

Members also enjoyed some general conversation and a chance to catch up with each other.  We are hoping that maybe by June we can return to meeting in person again.

Included below are a few screenshots from the meeting.  Photos and models are by members of Houston Brick Club.

 

April 11 Meeting:  This was the second online meeting for Houston Brick Club, and this time 21 members joined in.  We played a round of LEGO® Jeopardy that had been created by a Club members for the 2016 Brick Fiesta .. hopefully we will have another version for Brick Fiesta 2020!

We also talked about the micro Houston project, along with discussing some MOCs and building techniques.  One member showed his city layout with monorail.

March Meeting:  The original meeting was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.  We expected about 20 Club members to attend.

Instead, on March 28 we held our first-ever online Club meeting.  Eleven members joined in a conference call to talk about things we’re building or other projects we’re working on.  In-progress MOCs included a spaceship, a train, a roller coaster, a space rover, and a brick-built monorail.  Other discussion items included sorting, storage and organization, and cleaning of LEGO® bricks.  This went very well for a first time, and we intend to have another online meeting in two weeks.

February:  No meeting held due to the multiple display events we participated in this month.

 

January Meeting:

On January 18, 2020, about 20 members of Houston Brick Club met at a local store.  The main purpose of the meeting was to continue to working on our model of downtown Houston.  There was also discussion of upcoming events and other LEGO-related conversation.  Several members carefully searched the store’s supplies for the perfect parts for their own creations.

The model of downtown Houston can be seen in the photos below.  We are planning to have this completed for our Brick Fiesta exhibition in July.  We have made good progress but still have a ways to go.  Sponsorships are available – depending on the level of contribution, your name or business could be on the model .. or even have your building constructed in LEGO®!  Please Contact Us for more information.

Houston Brick Club wants to thank the owners of Bricks & Toys Destination for their fantastic hospitality!  The store sells new and used LEGO® sets, loose parts, and mini figures, plus it has areas to play and build.  It is located in Katy, just west of Houston.  Stop in and check out the selection!
