In Saint Charles County we have former Department of Energy site link
They have a great FREE meeting room there. It is at least 30 x 30. There is a coffee maker, microwave and nice bathrooms. It also has ample parking. To take advantage of this space, which has tables enough to host half a dozen games simultaneously, I have provisionally formed the Weldon Spring Gamers. I am running a huge bug game on the President's day weekend (February 17,18,19 2018) to inaugurate this group. The event is FREE and runs from 0800 to 2000 Saturday and Sunday and till 1700 on Monday.
I'd like to get a group together that uses this s space once a month for open gaming.

Weldon Spring is located on highway 94 just south of 40/64 so is easy to get to for most folks

We have room for lots of players on presidents weekend so please spread the word widely. Everything except food is provided. Rules are modified Sword and the Flame. If you don't know them we will teach you!

Any interest or feedback would be most welcome

It's a five hour drive from where I live. But I have it in my calendar to try to make the trip.

did you get me email?

I have the Official use permit for the event!

THis is a FREE event. The address is:
Weldon Spring Site Interpretive Center
7295 Highway 94 South
St. Charles, MO 63304

It is about a mile south of Highway 40/61 on Highway 94 in southern St Charles county. It is easily reached from most parts of the greater St Louis metro area.

Doors open at 8:00 AM Saturday Morning February 17th and we will game from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM Saturday and Sunday and 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday.

The game will be The Hive and the Flame in 15mm and everything will be provided.

We will have tables set aside for folks to bring models, miniatures or terrain that they have made. Display your handiwork!

Please tell your friends and spread the word through the gaming community. We are hoping that we can make this a regular event. There is additional space available on site, which is also FREE, so if the event goes well it can be expanded.

Also since it is free you can come for an hour or for all three days!

Can't wait to see you there!

If you create a mailing list for future events, please add me. I live in Brooklyn, NY but my in-laws live in St. Charles and I usually make it out there once a year or so.

tsofian Sponsoring Member of TMP14 Jan 2018 5:28 p.m. PST

We will keep folks posted as we go forward!

SouthernPhantom02 Mar 2018 9:03 p.m. PST

Shoot, I missed this one. I live less than two hours west of there.

tsofian Sponsoring Member of TMP03 Mar 2018 12:52 p.m. PST

We hope to have additional games at the same location in the future. Also come to Diecon in June!

SO how was it?

Hey Terry.

tsofian Sponsoring Member of TMP08 Mar 2018 6:00 p.m. PST

The space was excellent. The weather sucked, as we got snow the first day. We had about twenty people show up over the two days, which I thought wasn't bad for a first time. We used Monday to pick everything up.

I was able to check a lot of things I intended to do at Origins this year.

I already reserved the same weekend for next year!
