About zaLUG

We are a group of Adult Fans of LEGO® (AFOL‘s) based in Gauteng, South Africa. We also have some coastal members and our membership has grown larger than we thought possible, and that in less than 4 months since we announced the formation of the LUG!

The founding principles of zaLUG are the following:

  1. Having Fun and promote the brand we all love,
  2. Education: We organise a talk at our member meetings about building techniques as well as anything our members are interested in and
  3. Social Responsibility: we have identified the Greater Benoni Child Welfare and will be working closely with their management to help fulfil their needs.

I was always lucky enough to have parents who bought me LEGO, but as most youngsters, I discovered the opposite sex, and fell into my dark ages.

As most AFOLS, we come out of these dark times, and realise that the world of LEGO is way bigger, and way more impressive than it was when we were kids. And a lot of that is due to what Adults are now doing with this fantastic plastic brick.

Unfortunately LEGO is a bit of a solitary hobby, so with this LUG, we’ve attempted to gather all the other Adult Fans of LEGO together, for discussions, fun times and so we don’t feel quite so isolated.

If you’re interested in LEGO, and want to hang out with a bunch of like minded individuals, then really you don’t have much of a choice do you?
