Online “sorting parties”: Houston Brick Club members have been participating in online “sorting parties” for much of 2021. These are held by video call and are a chance for informal conversation and socialization. Many members sort parts, build sets, or create MOCs while on the call. These events happen about every other week on Saturday night, and are made available to members of all the LUGs in Texas.

Several of the participants were newer members, so we went around the “room” introducing ourselves. Many entertaining stories were told. We also discussed upcoming events (virtual and hopefully in-person), storage techniques, various builds, and much more.
Next meeting date to be determined and will likely also be online.
