The 39th Annual Seven Years War Convention will be in a new and larger location this year, but remains in South Bend, IN. Gaming and dealers will be in the Century Center South Bend, 120 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, South Bend, IN 46601. Admission remains $35 USD for the weekend. Gaming begins late Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening.
As always, there will be many miniature wargames encompassing the period 1680-1783, anything in a tricorne hat. In addition to our regular and very much appreciated dealers on over 20 tables, we are pleased to announce the addition of Helion & Co. from the UK who's director will also be giving a talk. Also new to the dealer lineup will be Winged Hussar Publishing.
Dealers (both professional and gamers just selling their stuff) include all historical periods and any are always welcome.
Gamemasters are also eagerly sought, and should preferably inquire by the first week of February.
We have a room block at the connected DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel South Bend, 123 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, South Bend, IN 46601. 574-235-9711.
Potential dealers or gamers should please contact me, Ken Bunger, directly at kbunger@cox.net. This may be our biggest show ever, so please consider attending to game, sell or buy! Updates are at sywconvention.blogspot.com

Looking at the website, it says that total admission is $30 USD, and here on TMP your post says $35 USD?

I have always wanted to attend but it is so far away and I don't want to fly. Maybe time for a long road trip.

I made the trip last year and it was absolutely worth it.

Unfortunately, I will playing 1800mm Moderns that weekend.

I will look into this for 2024, just not ready this year after a cross-country house move. Still unpacking and organizing the minis collections!

I could put on some rousing Jacobite Rebellion (1745-46) games!
