About the Northern Albert LEGO® Users Group (NALUG)
The Northern Alberta LEGO® Users Group (NALUG) is an informal
group of adults in and around the City of Edmonton. NALUG was
founded in 1999
to promote LEGO® as an adult hobby in the local community.
NALUG has organized several LEGO® train displays at model
train shows in Alberta and Saskatchewan and other exhibits
in local museums and shopping malls.
NALUG is a diverse group of enthusiasts from a broad range of
occupations. Club members plan exhibits through email and meet
informally to assemble models. Individuals privately own the
hundreds of thousands of LEGO® parts that are used in the
exhibits. To build custom models and large structures, NALUG
members purchase parts from other adult fans of LEGO® all
over the world.
About the international community of adult fans
During the past decade, adults worldwide have discovered or
rediscovered the joy of building with Lego. Adult LEGO® clubs
have been founded in many large urban centers in North America,
Europe, Asia and Australia. Enthusiasts are attracted by the fact
that all LEGO® parts sold since 1958 are interchangeable.
Intricate models can be built without the use of special
equipment, glues or paint. Some hobbyists focus on collecting
rare sets while others accumulate parts in large quantities. More
