An other excellent year at SuperTrain. Thank you very much to all of those that organized and volunteered at this show. Attendance was done a little from previous years, at 9500 people… but we all had a wonderful time.
The LEGO amusement park was a hit this year and provided a lot of movement on our display. The petting zoo being overtaken by dinosaurs was also very popular with the younger children, looking intently at the high level of detail. Downtown Calgary is always popular and was excellent with some new additions (the Hudson’s Bay building downtown and the BMO Roundup Centre) along with the favourites (the Hyatt, City Hall, the Bow Building, and the Suncor Building).
The Stampede Parade and power plant, with working Wartsila generators, were impressive. All of this was surrounded by many trains travelling to and fro.
We would encourage all ages to participate in our one-day event. The opportunity is to create entries, which must be pre-built, for our competition out of LEGO building system elements; drop off is between 12:00pm to 1:30pm with a $5 entry fee.
We would love to invite all members of the community and the City of Calgary to view what was submitted and marvel at these master builders from 2:00pm to 3:00 pm. The Calgary LEGO Train Club members will be setting up a display of their personal creations (My Own Creations or MOCs). There will also be opportunity to just play with some brick and or take pleasure in guessing at our brick guess contest. We will have the concession open for a few treats.
There will be a People’s Choice judging on the Adult builders’ entries. Awards will be handed out at 2:45pm and we are just asking for Donations to support the event at the door.
