What is MichLUG & MichLTC?

We are group of adults and young-adults who get together to have fun with LEGO products. The Michigan LEGO Users Group (MichLUG) is the primary organization. The Michigan LEGO Train Club (MichLTC) is a special interest group within MichLUG. We meet semi-regularly throughout the year and participate in a variety of shows.

What is the purpose of MichLUG?

Here is a quote from the club bylaws:

Section 2.01 Club Goals
The mission of MichLUG shall be as follows:
1. The promotion of good fellowship and communication among LEGO enthusiasts
2. Promotion of the LEGO hobby to the general public
3. Enable enjoyment by the Membership
4. Presentation of information and exhibits at shows and conventions of various types

So about these meetings, where & when do they take place?

Check out our Events page for more information on regarding both upcoming meetings and upcoming shows.

Shows huh? What does that mean exactly?

We design a layout to meet the requirements provided by the show organizer. A few examples would be; a variety of train tracks running through a town, a medieval village and castle, or a space port and docking area. Contact us with your requirements and we will work something out. We typically need 3 months to plan a layout and fit it into our schedule.

Where is MichLUG located?

Many clubs have a central location, sometimes even a club house. MichUG does not fall in this catagory. We have members all over the lower half of Michigan, including: St. Joseph, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Ann Arbor, and the Detroit suburbs. (Actually we had a member who lives in South Bend, Indiana and another in Windsor, Canada.)

Is MichLUG a part of, or supported by the LEGO Corporation?

Lego Direct has helped us out from time to time, but we do not represent them. We spend a lot of money on LEGO every year. If a toy or train store would like to sponsor us, we’d be interested in talking. This stuff is expensive!
