During May, after a few posts, emails, and a private meeting between Jenn Wagner (The Brick Chick) and Janey Gunning (Red Brick) at a local coffee house (Tims on Ediburgh and Woodlawn in Guelph).... we decided that a new Lug, to serve our local needs was totally in order.
On June 2nd, I posted the following note on Lugnet, (Jenn posted to Bricklink, and shortly after we made a facebook group. )
Hey there Ontarians!
You read it right, join me in cheering for the birth of WHaCKaLuG. Its real,
its alive and its ready to play.
Jenn The-Brick-Chick and I, Janey "Red Brick" are combining forces and tag
teaming this new LUG and are "desperately seeking" AFOLS in Ontario to join us.

Hamilton, Cambridge, Kitchener, London and Guelph area of Ontario. We welcome
anyone who is in driving distance of our meetings to please feel free to come.

Our inaugural meeting is set!
