Has anyone seen dates for LITTLE WARS 2021 or the SYWA 2021 Convention? By this time normally I'd have rooms for everything through Historicon.

John, the VA is already scheduling March appointments. If I don't have convention dates, I don't know which dates to keep clear.

Given the present panic, I'll be a little surprised if a spring convention happens. But I'd be an idiot not to prepare for the possibility.
