Wamalug: Meeting: June 12, 2021

Fairfax County Public Library
Kingstowne Branch Library
6500 Landsdowne Centre
Alexandria, Virginia

Wamalug’s first overwhelmingly in-person meeting in 15 months! (Masks ended up largely optional.) We were joined by 5 people on the associated Zoom meeting.

The banner was in place. At least three people were building the new LEGO 40516 Everyone is Awesome and its monochromatic minifigs. Anthony displayed his Grumman LLV postal vehicle and a micropolis high-rise. Joshua with an homage to (Indiana Jones and the) Raiders of the Lost Ark, a mecha (possibly it was this Thor Stormbreaker), and a Batman’s Spitfire. Charlie, Caitlin, and James Wr sorted. Abe managed to open his LEGO Creator Expert 10281 Bonsai Tree and get started building it (as did at least one other participant). Gene was building LEGO Hidden Side 70424 Ghost Train Express. Robert built LEGO 40450 Amelia Earhart Tribute. Patrick built new sets. James Wa got started building LEGO 76178 Daily Bugle. Ben and Norman had third-party sets to build. Dene had his Blacktron and Classic Space homages and a lit mosaic display. Jason built trees and other greenery in preparation for BrickFair. Constantine had a variety of constructions from the past year, including his own version of Anthony’s postal vehicle.

A whole box of packages of Presidential Hershey’s Kisses was available, free for the taking, some with the signature of the 45th and some with no signature.
