Is there one online current for USA?

Deucey Supporting Member of TMP01 Nov 2021 4:27 a.m. PST

That's helpful.

(But last updated pre-covid)

HMS Exeter01 Nov 2021 5:26 p.m. PST

I wouldn't try to use this site. It's way out of date and one link connects to one of those…

"OH, NO! Your devise has been infected by 2 viruses. DONT CLICK AWAY! This is what you must do to avert catastrophe."

BS flytraps.

randolph224327 Nov 2021 9:35 a.m. PST

Here's a LIMITED list of historical cons- by no means all inclusive – and in no particular order. All dates are for 2022 as listed on various webstites….and I'm sure there will be changes.

D'iberville MS – Bayou Wars TBD
Orlando FL – Hurricon SEP 22-25

Disco Joe27 Nov 2021 5:30 p.m. PST

I didn't find Historicon for 2022 at King of Prussia on the site. Where exactly is it listed?

Rotundo27 Nov 2021 5:39 p.m. PST

It is at the Lancaster Marriot and Convention Center at Penn Square.

randolph224328 Nov 2021 7:50 a.m. PST

CORRECTION:

Historicon is located in Lancaster PA (not King of Prussia PA)

UPDATE:

Cold Wars (Lancaster PA) dates are APR 1-3

Disco Joe28 Nov 2021 1:52 p.m. PST

Then why is Cold Wars still listed as Ocean City on the HMGS website?

randolph224330 Nov 2021 6:08 p.m. PST

CORRECTON:

Cold Wars is indeed at Ocean City MD, per the HMGS website.

***thanks to Disco Joe for catching the typo – and I'll get my eyeglasses checked.

UPDATE: Dates for Bayou Wars

randolph224314 Dec 2021 8:48 a.m. PST

UPDATE:

Nashville, TN – Nashcon. AUG 19-21

Disco Joe14 Dec 2021 5:27 p.m. PST

You can scratch Cold Wars 2022 off the list because it has been canceled at Ocean City.
