REGISTRATION: Cost of WADBAGCon?  Free!  There is no registration fee for gaming.  Pre-registration is not necessary, but is strongly encouraged so the convention staff can estimate numbers for table allocation and food prep. Pre-register by email to David Kuijt at, giving your name, email, phone number, and whether you will be present for Morning, Afternoon, and Evening gaming sessions.

BRING AND BUY: Think of this as a low-effort flea market. Have any extra figures that you don't want? An army that will not fight well for you?  Some terrain you don't need? Bring it, mark it with your name and a price, and we'll put it out on table space. No fees, no barrier to your gaming time.

OPEN GAMING: There is plenty of table space for other games, including board games such as Shadows Among Camelot, Lord of the Ring, Settlers of Catan, and many others will be available if there is interest.

FOOD & BEVERAGE:  Lunch and Dinner will be provided on-site, since there are no food purveyors near by. Please preregister and bring $3 if you will be staying over lunch (i.e. between the Morning and Afternoon sessions), and we will supply you with a hearty Chili. Please preregister and bring $5 if you will be staying over dinner (between the Afternoon and Evening sessions) and we will supply some sort of hearty comestible then, too. (Details still under debate).If you have any special dietary needs or food issues, please let us know -- we may not be able to accommodate you, but we will certainly try.
