NOVAG winners at Cold Wars:  At Cold Wars, the HAWKS sponsored a Battle in a Box contest.  The idea was that you were going to visit a friend and had to take a complete miniatures game in a box about 12”x7”x5”.  Mark Fastoso won with an old west game based on the Man with No Name movie.

HCon PEL: The deadline for submitting games to HMGS for HCon is 10 April. A buddy attended the HMGS Board meeting.  He reports that there wil be free parking (validated) in a garage near the convention center for those not staying at the site hotel. And you can drop you gaming material off with folks “on the curb” and then park your car.  There won’t be club rooms this year.  They are planning on putting GMs from clubs in the same area or on adjacent tables.  NOVAG will not have a designated area this year, but maybe next year.  So let’s get those games submitted.

Games Tavern: The Games Tavern has closed its retail store to reconfigure their business. No date has been set for when it may reopen.
