Hi Everyone,

I am working on an online resource for all gamers in Ontario (Canada). link

My plan is to make a webpage listing every upcoming gaming convention that I know of in Ontario. In so doing, I am hoping to have as comprehensive of a list as possible all in one place.

Participation game style conventions are my favourite, but large tournament based events are welcome to the list too. So if you have an Ontario based gaming event that could be considered the size of a small convention or bigger, please let me know so I can add it to the list.

Thanks. The link to the page again is… link

This sounds like a great resource, and I applaud your efforts to promote the hobby! As a Toronto resident, I will be checking the listings routinely.

Thank you both Steelkilt and IronDuke596. Looks like May will be a busy month. Just added a couple of new events there.

Thank you for the work. Our local club has a few one day "mini cons" in Newmarket. I'll review your list and may add them as they are created.

Awesome Stephen. Be sure to email the website when you have some news for your convention sized events.

Or you could mention your "mini con" here too, Stephen.

This is great!! Thanks for taking the initiative…would your future hopes also include con reports from other folks?

Thanks again…and good luck!

Oiler 72. If your con has some really nice pics to show off, I might work with someone to post up an Ontario based convention report that I did not write. For now though, I have done some where I used other people's pictures but did the writing my self.

Must Contain Minis,

A few weeks back we had a meeting in London Ontario to try to coordinate support for the various conventions and game days. Members were from Hamilton Road Gaming Group in London, some from Stratford, members of KEGS, Hamilton Tabletop Gaming and Council Fires.

I live in the same town as you (I believe) and should have driven you there. You could have written this up on your blog. Darn, a missed opportunity.

A missed opportunity for sure Bowman. Maybe another time. :)
