The 2015 Agenda and Breaking News

Mark you calendar for the weekend of October 23-25!

Join us as we get back to our roots at the Days Hotel in West Chester, Pennsylvania with our focus on the Warhammer 40,000 Grand Tournament!

As you can see, we are upgrading the website, so please be patient while we complete the new content.

Here is the latest info for this year:

This year we are changing our event from a multi-game convention to focus on the 40K Grand Tournament. The 40K GT will host 50 players on Saturday and Sunday and our club will still run our side events including BFG, Epic, the Friday Night Fight, and open gaming.

Our Facebook page has been renamed – we dropped the date from the title. You can still get a redirect from the old address.

We have an Event listed on Facebook which can be found here:

Our first warm-up event is scheduled for May 23. It will be held at The Games Keep in West Chester, PA.

MechaniCon 2014 has come and gone. We are very proud of how everything turned out and we could not have done it without all the help we have received.
