Vancouver Lego Games: Win Tickets

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

What a fun event! When I was a kid, my brother and I were Lego-crazed. I would have gone bonkers to attend something like this!


As part of a class project, five students from UBC decided to organize a charity Lego building event. The Vancouver Lego Games will benefit Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and will be the world’s largest charity Lego building event. So cool.

The event takes place April 28th from 2PM – 4PM at the Firefighter’s Club in Burnaby. 300 participants are expected.

Competitors have two ways to participate:

Ready, Set, Build!

Vancouver Lego Games will provide bricks for each person in which a theme will be announced and they will have 15 minutes to create a unique creation to go along with that theme. Judges will then choose the winner from each age category. Prizes will be awarded.

My Own Creation

Competitors are asked to bring a unique creation (no exact sets) to showcase their unique Lego building skills. We simply ask that the creation fit in a space that is 12″ x 12″ so that pieces can be displayed properly.

Competitors will be judged according to these age groupings:

5 to 6 years old
7 to 8 years old
9 to 10 years old
11 to 12 years old
13 to 18 years old

For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit their website at

We have 1 adult competitor pass and 1 youth competitor pass to give away to a couple of our lucky readers. Parents, you can of course enter for your kiddos to win the youth pass. Please leave a note below, indicating which pass you’d like to win, to enter to win. Two winners will be chosen at random on March 25, 2013.

Rarely do you see someone get excited when they talk about commuting. We recently met two guys who will change your outlook on this necessary daily task for many of us. Really!

Cloverdale residents, friends, co-workers and business partners Darian Kovacs and Chris Geoghegan are commuters themselves and, after lots of frustration, they just knew there had to be another commuting option for residents of the Fraser Valley. Putting their creative, entrepreneurial brains together they have come up with something GREAT!

Beginning July 3, 2012, those commuting from Langley and Surrey to downtown Vancouver have a new travel option – Pacific Commuter club! We know that many residents in these communities feel frustrated with transit options and will be super excited about this new opportunity!
