The annual SYW Convention, in my opinion, is arguably the best miniature wargaming convention in the United States, more so for the quality than quantity of games. I will try to attend the convention, if not on both days, at least for one day. Paul and the other game-masters put on beautiful games.
PS - I, too, would be willing to offer a ride for a fellow or husband and wife who would fly into O'Hare Airport to attend the convention.
Planning on attending 1st time this convention, I have played Napoleonics, ACW, FOW, Battlefront minis. I have bought some British and French for FIW, never painted or got into it, no one around. Just found out about this convention last year and planning on being there to play and buy stuff. Will wear a colorful shirt Bright Salmon color. See you folks there Friday before 9... I hope. Bob
