About Us

Do you love LEGO?

Are you 16 or older?
Do you live within driving distance of Kenosha, WI?
 
If you answered yes to those questions, we'd love to evaluate you as a potential KLUG member. Here's how you join:
  • Contact Us! Let us know a little about yourself and your relation to the hobby.
  • Attend a meeting. We'd like to meet you in person before we let you join the group.
  • Have fun! If you enjoy the meeting, let us know. We will then vote as a group to let you in.

Our Members include AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO) from all walks of life, and a few YFOLs (Young Fans of LEGO) as well. Some of us have been life long LEGO Fans, some are finding a renewed love for the brick inspired by the camaraderie, and some are seasoned veterans in the Global LEGO Community. No matter what their origins, they have found new levels of fun and devotion as part of the Group.

The Group's greatest asset is found in it's diversity. Our works range from architectural to organic, robotic to humorous, from vehicles to "every day" objects. In every scale imaginable...microscale, minifig scale, miniland, "big" figs...even "life-sized", and exaggerated scales! The variety produces a wonderful melding of fascination for the Group, and an opportunity to learn from one another.

Although KLUG is a relatively new organization, it has already made it's mark here in the Midwest. We've had many successful events to our credit since forming the group in June 2010. One of our collaborative focuses has been to create area items and landmarks out of LEGO which are recognizable, beloved parts of our community.

Our endeavors together have been enjoyable, enthusiastic, and productive...even more so as our Membership grows. So, if you're a LEGO Lover in our part of the Midwest, come to one of our exhibits or activities... maybe even become a Member yourself. It's a genuine pleasure to make others happy doing something that makes you happy!
