Mini Con in Altona Meadows (western suburbs)

Postby red_gamster » Sun Jun 29, 2014 9:28 pm

I was thinking about holding a mini-con in the western suburbs of Melbourne at my lawn bowls club (Laverton). I held one here many years ago and ConVic has also been held here before. Very bright, lots of room and tables, free off street parking and very reasonable rent.

The only weekend I can get is not far off - Sat 2 and Sun 3 August.

Just conducting a short poll to see if I can gauge interest (since there's plenty of game groups and cons happening in Melbourne these days).

Con would be from 10am - midnight Saturday and 10 - 5pm Sunday.

There's a bar and it is close to fast food outlets. About 10 mins from Laverton train station and also just off the Princes Freeway. The convention would have a couple of competitions (Zombie Dice and Crokinole) and perhaps a chance to sell second hand games. But otherwise largely open gaming. Entry would be $5 per day purely to cover rent.

Poll is at: http://boardgamegeek.com/article/16173948#16173948

Any comments welcome - PM me or post below.
