There was plenty of reminiscing happening over the weekend at the Albury Wodonga Lego Users Group’s first independent event.
More than 700 people visited the Thurgoona Community Centre to see displays ranging from classic, 30-year-old models to the recently-completed Albury post office building.
It was Thurgoona dad Rhys Winckle’s first look at the AWLUG’s work, which has run for two years and attracted 52 members.
“It’s something to do with the kids and it was good reminiscing about the Lego I used to play with,” he said.
AWLUG vice president Grant Dakos’s interest came from a similar place.
“I got my mum’s collection from her place and went from there,” he said.
Mr Dakos builds Lego with his eight-year-old daughter, Celeste, whose collection stems from one of her favourite shows, Ninjago.
He said the AWLUG hoped to form a children’s group down the track – but in the meantime, his daughter was his best helper.
“She always talks about the show and I try to listen … it’s time together,” he said.
