    The Fight in the Skies Society
    2019 DAWN PATROL® Spring Mini-Con

    April 10th to 14th, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    The event you wait all year for is coming! The legend continues to grow with 4 full days of gaming -- an extra-long weekend of DAWN PATROL® gamesmanship, camaraderie, skill and FUN !! With such a large and lively group of players, you can be sure the lead will be hot and the zingers hotter.
    This annual gathering gives you the opportunity to test your mettle against the best DAWN PATROL® players in the world. Will your roster grow or shrink? Who knows, but three things are certain -- old friendships will be renewed, new ones formed, and fun will be the order of the day.
    There is a MAJOR change this year – we’re in the same locale but moving to a different hotel just across the street. We had to move due to availability issues, and our new room is more expensive, but is bigger. The new venue (the Comfort Suites Milwaukee Airport) is just a ½ block north of our old location. We kept our rate the same for the full weekend, but any extra you can contribute would be appreciated. In addition, we need to fill a block of 12 sleeping rooms each night to get our Sunday room at no charge.

    This weekend hosts several of the FITS Society’s marquee events:
    6th Annual Kerry Nash and Alan Christensen Memorial Event (additional entry fee applies)
    -This is a special event in honor of our fallen friends and fellow players, featuring a nice prize for the winner
    -The event is limited to 12 players as this game is played with Kerry’s custom built miniatures (if demand exceeds 12 a second game will be added) The BIG GAME
    -Multiple flights, ‘fog of war,’ unknown objectives -- BIG doesn’t begin to describe this event! There’ll be a huge board, more than a dozen players and hundreds of years of DAWN PATROL® experience in a single game. Do you have what it takes to win glory -- or possibly a medal -- on the biggest stage there is?
    The FITS Society Open Championship Game (additional entry fee applies)
    -The FITS Society’s crown jewel, this bi-annual championship awards the winner the Championship mug and automatic entry to the following year’s Masters Game.
    From near and far, the best DAWN PATROL® players in the world will be there -- will you?

    Warm-up gaming will begin on Wednesday at 7 p.m., and the action won’t stop until mid-afternoon Sunday.

    The Block Rate is $82.00 a night, 1 King or 2 Queens. All guestrooms are spacious suites and they will wow you with all sorts of extras, including refrigerator, microwave, sofa sleeper, whirlpool tub, and free Wi-Fi.

    You will have to call the hotel and tell them to reserve your room under the FITS Society block for us to get credit toward our 12 room commitment. This is very important!
