At 2359 hours, Monday, March 15th, we will cut off event submissions.  You can still submit events but they will not be included in the PEL (Preliminary Event Listing).  Nor will players be able to preregister for your games.  That does not mean we do not want you to GM, but to get maximum exposure get them in..  

We have also added three more vendors and expect a couple more next week.  The room block is almost filled.

Little Wars maintains compliance with  State restrictions 

We are continuing to work with Lombard Westin to ensure compliance to the Governor's mandates.  Little Wars still passes the criteria in order to continue.  

Restrictions are continuing to ease.  I would urge all those who have not done so to preregister to do now.  We do have a 400 person maximum.  Masks are required, and temperatures will be checked at the door.  

It will be great seeing  you there.
