Karl Maftoum (Labor for Brindabella) brings the Lego

By johnboy - 11 July 2012 10

The Lego Challenge is rolling along nicely. Today Labor’s Karl Maftoum has graced The Eagle’s Nest and deposited Lego for our Candidate Challenge.

For those coming in late there’s two things going on here:
1) We need donations of Lego (or Lego contributed for return on a by-the-kilogram basis as we don’t plan to separate them back out again)

2) So we can then spend August and September in the pub watching ACT election candidates trying to make the most impressive possible creation with the available bricks.

It should be noted we’re not doing one giant sit down with all the candidates at once (fun as that could be) but a series run over many nights with a YouTube video of what they make and what comes of it.

We’re certainly encouraging candidates to get in and donate the pieces they’re wanting to see when they sit down with the big box of Lego.

Much appreciated Karl! As a donating candidate he’s allowed to choose venue for his upcoming challenge, in this case PJ’s Tuggeranong seems likely to get the nod.

(Yes we realise clever candidates are getting good cheap publicity out of this. This is not a problem as we aim to encourage clever candidates)

So far the donating tally is One Liberal, Two Labor, one member of the public (Thank you Ayrton) and no Greens or minor parties.

Yet. We’ll let you know!

What’s Your opinion?

Does Ayrton get to choose a venue?

Re kon he should get to choose 2 given it’s completely off his own bat and shown alot more initiative then some of the candidates.

I will content myself with the pleasure of watching the candidates trying to sort through the hideous mess of Lego that I found in the garage.

I was so hoping you’d choose the Old Cotter Rd Pub (that burnt down 10+ years ago) for the poor sods that were too cheap to contribute.

We’re pretty sure that running stories here is all the advertising our political class needs.

But please, share through your networks

There won’t be enough train tracks for the bullet train party.

How have you advertised this JB? Are all MLAs and candidates aware that this is going on?

I am disappointed by the lack of lego trains in this photo

I can see he’s got some for the 8-14 age range, but, to be on the safe side, there are some big blocks just in case.

The only serious candidate in the race ! Go Karl. Wonder if …Chick Henry will wheel chair in? I say let’s set up a race between Chick, Val Jeffrey and Doszpot first over the line in a walking frame race they can’t do Lego.

Good to see Riotact putting the candidates through their paces (I love Lego).
