Post date: Nov 01, 2016 1:51:24 AM

Over the weekend of October 8 & 9, 2016, the Nashville chapter presented BrickBlast at the main branch of the Nashville Public Library in downtown Nashville. The library turned over their largest conference room to contain all things LEGO for the weekend. There was a great turnout with 24 TNVLC members from Nashville, Huntsville and Knoxville chapters involved. The visitor head count was 673 people for the weekend.

Visitors enjoyed the play areas, including Duplo, Bionicle and giant piles of green 2x4s, as well as regular system bricks, and also bingo, trivia competitions and a scavenger hunt.

Our display included a 50 foot long collaborative train layout encompassing Huntsville buildings

It was all in all a fantastic weekend where we got to meet lots of LEGO fans, young and old, who may not have heard of us previously. Thanks to everyone who came out to see us, the library for hosting us and our members for all their hard work.
