After a long wait, I have finally arranged ConVic 8.

I am afraid that, due to ongoing development of my website, I will not be able to set up any clever info there, so this is all there'll be for the moment.

This time around we're going to go for a fantastic venue, rather than a dark basement in the Eastern suburbs. Seriously, this is the best games venue of them all, & the wargamers will love the space.

We're going to be at
Laverton Bowls Club
Hall Avenue, Altona Meadows

Directions (according to Google):
1. Head northwest on West Gate Fwy 7.5 km
2. Continue on Princes Fwy 5.6 km
3. Take the exit toward Kiora St 0.3 km
4. Turn left at Kiora St 0.2 km
5. Turn right at North Ave 0.4 km
6. Continue on Hall Ave
Destination will be on the left 0.1 km

OK. Time and money.

Friday 11th September 7pm - 11:30pm
Saturday 12th September 10am - 11:30pm
Sunday 13th September 10am - 5pm

How much will these 24 1/2 hours of gaming cost you? $10 for as much or as little of it as you want. Want to come & watch for 20 minutes = $10. Want to play continuously for 24.5 hours = $10.

We have always had a few interstate & regional visitors for ConVic & I would love more to visit. This is a great opportunity to meet with people you only game with once or twice a year.

Anyone traveling from a distance (interstate, country Victoria, far eastern suburbs) please contact me & I'll see if there is someone more local who can put you up.

If you are local and can offer beds/sofas/floorspace to visitors, please let me know.

Additionally, if people want, I can arrange car pooling. Good for the environment & your pocket.

I was intending to run some tournaments. This space will keep you up to date with what & when. I will ensure there are some excellent prizes on offer.

If you are interested in organising something, or helping to run it, please contact me.

Jack will, I hope, be organising another mega-game. Hopefully he'll be as imaginative as in the past. The tradition of ConVic will continue.

Adam will once again be organising a Lawn Bowls competition, though it won't be on real grass, but the synthetic green. The club will be preparing for the up-coming start to the season.

Unhalfbricking Games will be there, with as much stock as I can manage. If you want anything to collect, please let me know in advance. I have a large collection of demo games too, so you can try before you buy, if I can help.

I have invited Games Australia to host an event at ConVic. Melissa will be overseas, so i am still waiting for someone else to fill me in on the details.

If you run a small business, & wish to promote or sell at ConVic, please feel free to discuss this with me & I am sure we can come to an arrangement. There is no reason for it to be games related (we have had a jewelry stand at a past ConVic).

There will be a Saturday prize table at ConVic8. 6pm is now a fixed time. You must be there at the time to be in it. All items must be on the table by 6pm at the latest!

How it works:
You bring anything game related (guidelines below) & Melissa (Passionate_Always) will register it & put it on display on the table.
At 5pm on Saturday, a name will be chosen (method to be decided later) & that person gets to choose anything from the table. Whoever brought that item gets to choose next & so on.

This means the better the item you bring, the more chance you've got of being able to choose one of the more interesting items available. However, bring something smaller & you've still got a good chance of an interesting trade!

Guildelines:
Items must be game related (no computer games, CDs or piles of cash (even though that IS games related))
Items must make a logical group; e.g.
Game + expansion(s)
Several sets of Magic:TG Boosters
Some miniatures from a single series

However, this is not a place for 'sweeteners', so we will consider the following to be several distinct items:
More than one stand-alone game (even when designed by the same author or in the same series).

There is no need to contact me to register, but feel free if you want to know if I'd accept certain groupings. My decision is final & not to be argued with, I don't have the energy!
