March 8th – 11th, 2018 in Lake Geneva, WisconsinGary Con is an annual game convention celebrating the life and works of Gary Gygax, the Father of Role Playing Games. We do this by doing what he loved so much in life, playing Games! Join Gary’s children, friends and fellow game enthusiasts as we celebrate a life well-played.
Open the Flyer for this event here:
The event you wait all year for has arrived! This year the legend grows with 4 full days of gaming. An extra long weekend of DAWN PATROL® gamesmanship, camaraderie, skill and FUN!! The lead is hot and the zingers hotter.
Test your mettle against the best DAWN PATROL® players in the world. Will your roster grow or shrink? One thing is certain, old friendships will be renewed, new ones formed and fun is the order of the day.
Warm-up gaming begins Wednesday at 7 p.m., and the action won’t stop until mid afternoon Sunday. This weekend hosts the FITS Societies marquee events:
5th Annual Kerry Nash Memorial Event (additional entry fee applies)
In honor of our fallen friends and fellow players
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. A four table board, dozens of players and hundreds of years of DAWN PATROL® experience in a single game. Do you have what it takes to win glory or even a medal on the biggest stage there is?
The Masters Game (additional entry fee applies)
The FITS Society crown jewel, this bi-annual championship awards the Silver Cup to the Masters Champion. There can be only one.
From near and far the best DAWN PATROL® players in the world will be there, will you?
