Historical Miniatures Gaming Society—Pacific Southwest Chapter

Bolt-Action-Sherman.jpgHMGS-PSW chapter is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is to promote historical wargaming and the study of military history. Our territory covers Southern California as well as all of Arizona and Southern Nevada. We host two conventions of our own each year: Winter Campaign in February, and Fall Campaign in October. In between our conventions, we attend major Southern California conventions and sponsor informal game days at local hobby game stores

Mini-Wars 2018 at CSUF –  October 13th and 14th

 This years Fall Campaign – Mini-Wars 2018 will be in the Portolla Pavilion at Cal State University Fullerton.   The dates are Saturday, October 13th from 9:00AM until 10:00PM and Sunday, October 14th. from 9:00AM until 9:00PM  At 3,623 s.f., we will have a lot of room to set up games, and two days in which to play them. The convention will be held in Room C of the Pavilion. The same Saturday, the International Plastic Modelers Society will host their Orange Con in room A. On Saturday afternoon they will close room A for three hours of Model Judging. We figure that a substantial number of their attendees will want to see what we are doing two doors down. Space B will be the vendors area filled with people who sell stuff we might like. There will be plenty of room to add our traditional vendors. Given the attendance anticipated for both events, we are hoping that we draw out even more vendors. There are additional meeting rooms in the student center for lecturers and special demonstrations. The parking this year will be free, as it was last year. Please contact Kevin Rounsaville to schedule a game table and time.

Hotels
The Marriot Hotel is the closest to the convention. The Titan Student Union Building is just a short walk across the campus. Last year they had a great discount program. This year their everyday rate is really close to last years, so we didn’t bother with all of the paperwork. We had a PEL to type up.
