Midland Meeple Con 2015

Midland Meeple Con will be the first board game convention in Midland!

Saturday, April 11, 2015
Whiting Forest, Midland (just North of the Library on Eastman Avenue)
10 AM to 10 PM
$15 per adult or $35 for families (3 or more from same group)

We ask that you bring a dish to share. Soft drinks and plates, cups, etc. will be provided, and there are refrigerators and heating ovens at Whiting Forest.
We are limited to 80 gamers, so we are looking for a tentative head count at this time. If you would send Grace or Neil a quick email reply, we can get an idea of possible attendance (yes or no and how many). It is amazing how far ahead planning must occur!

This year the Midwest Media Expo will host the World Cosplay Summit national finals! All in downtown Detroit at the GM Renaissance Center. Mark your calendars.
