Q: What is a LUG?

A: A LEGO Users Group is simply a community of LEGO enthusiasts who meet up regularly to be social, share ideas, trade parts, build on collaborative projects, plan awesome events and generally share in the hobby. The Iowa LEGO Users Group (IowaLUG) aims to create such a community locally and to act as a resource for people who are interested in LEGO as a hobby at any level.

Q: What is a AFOL?
