You don’t start a LUG for the paperwork... right?
The right tools should make everyone’s life a lot more simpler so that we can all do more of the fun stuff... building
Almost all LEGO clubs are started and run by a group of like-minded enthusiastic volunteers each with a specific role. They are passionate about their hobby and want to build something amazing together. But like most people, they are usually very time poor as life gets in the way.
Eventually, like most clubs, they will start encountering the new challenges that come with success such as:
Centralise all your management into one proven system
Introducing Jumper Plate… a LEGO club management system specifically designed to reduce the workload of any RLUG managing their growing club, members, activities, and the opportunities LEGO offers as part of being a recognised LEGO User Group.
The system mainstreams all the common admin of running a club, shares, and centralises everyone’s workload and information on to an online environment that is available 24/7 and accessible by any web-enabled device.
Centralise and mainstream the workload
Jumper Plate mainstreams centralises all your common tasks such as managing the membership and signup details and allows the member themselves to maintain their details up to date within their own member’s area.
As members have a centralised place to log in, the team will be able to have a single place where members can also see upcoming events such as club days, register to exhibit at your major events and even participate in LUGBULK.
Four key confident phases
Using a proven process used by many RLUGS, Jumper Plate splits the running of a LUGBULK into four key phases, Participate, Element Selection, Ordering, and Delivery. Each phase is optimised to ensure the experience is easy, accurate, and flexible to meet the club's needs.
Information such as checklists, member's orders, and even the LUG's order with LUGBULK is all exportable and preformatted so they can be easily printed if needed.
Get accurate and exportable details
Get all the up to date registration details you need to help organise your Brick Event accessible anytime and anywhere. Quickly send out bulk email messages to your registrants to keep them well informed and export and download full or individuals registration details when you need it. Also, export specific details to send to your third party suppliers such as brick engravers and screen printers, etc
Registrants can amend their registration right up to the deadline and via the member's area can see all the vital information.
Central and informative
Keep your members well informed as well as providing a single place for them to register for events, participate in LUGBULK, link accounts, and to keep their own details up to date.
Confidently meet requirements
Get all the necessary details for the annual reports as reported by your event summaries and membership stats. Send communications to your membership concerning any LEGO rule alignments and address anything that can affect the status of the RLUG
Enjoy what LEGO brings
AFOLs, local communities, and ultimately The LEGO Group can enjoy the benefits of a thriving and growing RLUG.
Each feature is designed from the ground up and continually evolving from feedback by real users and the AFOL.
The base system has everything you need to manage your club signups, membership details, communications and club day details including vital stats designed specifically for your Annual LEGO Report.
Whilst the base system has everything you need to manage your LUG, Jumper Plate also provides additional On-Demand features that help with more complicated activities such as putting on a Brick Event and also manages very specific features offered by LEGO such as LUGBULK.
Simplify the whole process
Confidently coordinate LEGO's annually offered LUGBULK programme in four easy and proven phases. Inform your members with details such as each phase’s deadlines, tax and shipping costs and currency conversion, then manage who is allowed to participate in your LUGBULK.
You can choose to allow participants to be involved in the final list of 85 elements and once done, open up the system to allow participants to start placing orders.
The system has specifically designed spreadsheets that help you and your team with the fulfilment of the orders when the LUGBULK arrives.
Get accurate details
Allow your members to sign up to any event with all the details you need to be answered. See everyone's registrations and gain insights into key details you need to make your Brick Events easier to organise.
You can also export out the details into specially designed spreadsheets to further help you organise your events with your team.
Show members what’s coming
Enter all your upcoming club days and special events you have planned to keep your members well informed with times, dates and any details you wish to share.
Know your most active members
For those clubs using a "Standard" and "Premium" plan, they will be able to keep track of the club activities each member attends so you can gain insights such as who is most active etc for both your records and valuable details you can use in your reports back to LEGO.
By adding a "Participation Value" to each event type, you will be able to run a report that totals your whole memberships "Participation Score" to find your most active members in a given period.
Manage and trace your LUG's assets
Exclusive to the "Premium" plan, your LUG can list all of its LUG SUPPORT, LEGO Sets and generally any other type of asset you wish to record so that you know what you have and where it is located at any given time.
Each of your inventory items such as your LEGO Support sets or prizes etc can be tracked right down to when the set was distributed, to which member it was given to and from which event it was given for full traceability.
Build and grow your club
Interested people can easily become a member by choosing one of your membership types and along with all the details you require are then automatically welcomed into the LUG. You have a central place to access and manage all your memberships details.
To help ensure the membership details are accurate, the members themselves are also able keep their details up to date via the members area.
Communicate with your members
Keep in contact with all your members to ensure anyone can be easily kept up to date on all your activities and LUG announcements.
You can send multiple group messages to your whole membership base or send more targeted communications to a single type of group such as a specific membership type, event registrants or even LUGBULK participants only for example
One place for everything
Your members can access their own member's area where they can keep up to date with all the LUGs upcoming events such as club days, a single place to register to any of your Brick Events and to easily participate in your LUGBULK.
Members will be able to keep all their details up to date and the ability to link other Jumper Plate accounts both in the same LUG and other LUG's they have accounts with.
I have used Jumperplate's LUGBulk site for the last two years of LUGBulk, and have found this to be immensely less of a problem to organise. The website seamlessly handles ordering and is a real boon when it comes to sorting.
