Keith Con 2008

Mark your calendars everyone!

This year KeithCon will be on June 7th, 2008.

The format will be entirely different this year. Instead of a single tournament, there will be a multiple historic scenarios in a variety of sizes (of battles) and scales (of figures). The time period covered will still be the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries using our Make Ready! rules.

It's really important for me that lack of familiarity with our rules should not stop anyone from having a good time at the Con. Last year, the time constraints of tournament gaming (and a few other issues) detracted from people's enjoyment. This year will see a more relaxed pace. There will be more time to yak with old friends and check out our Vendor: Five Arrows Figures.

The location will be the Military Family Resource Centre at 50 Rivers Drive East, Trenton. It's a great venue with lots of space, good lighting and it's right next to a Timmies and a pub. (No alcohol allowed on MFRC premises)

Start time will be 9AM and we will finish at 4:30PM. Afterward we will go out for dinner at the Britannia Pub.

You can always wander by tables of other games and check them out during lulls in your own table, of course :-)

Please let me know if you are planning to come and what table(s) you might be interested in. If we get more attendees, we can easily open more tables.

I look forward to seeing you there. Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments.
