Historicon in Baltimore for 2010 and 2011

UPDATE! The convention has changed (at least for 2010) from Baltimore to Valley Forge! For update see this posting

It's official . . .

Following several years of research and fact-finding, HMGS East has contracted the Baltimore Convention Center, Inner Harbor, Baltimore, Maryland, for Historicon 2010 and 2011.

The Board determined that this location provides a great new opportunity to accomplish HMGS' Charter and Purpose of "Promoting the Hobby of Historical Miniatures Gaming."

After extended negotiations to meet all of HMGS's requirements, the final agreement addresses issues raised from wide-ranging discussions and Member/Vendor feedback. The Historicon Convention Team and HMGS East will continue to take input as we prepare for the move.

The Historicon Convention Team and HMGS East Board Members will now devote our full effort to meeting all of our attendee and vendor needs for Historicon to include no price increase, as well as appealing hotel, parking, dining and access/loading options.

HMGS East will release more details as soon as possible via the HMGS East Newsletter and the HMGS East Issues Forum.
