    Barrage XVII is a one-day mini-convention run by the Harford Area Weekly Kriegspielers. It will be held at the Havre de Grace community hall, in northern Harford County, convenient from I-95. This is a low-key event. In the past we've had a half dozen dealers, as many as 200 attendees, and thirty or more games. Bring your friends. Run a game.

Gaming begins at 9:00 AM and runs until 9:00 PM. Game masters may begin setting up their games at 8:00 AM.

The overall convention organizer is Geoff Graff (ggraff7@verizon.net, 410-557-2456). Please contact him for more information about the convention. Also contact him if you are interested in renting dealer or flea market space.



Buck Surdu (surdu@acm.org) is the events coordinator. Contact him if you are interested in running games. We are always interested in game masters other than HAWKS running games at Barrage.

Please include the information in the table below for each of your games as well as a phone number and Email address where you can be reached.  Game masters get reduced admission rates. As the event gets closer, come here to see a list of scheduled games.  Games will be posted here as GMs sign up.

You sign up to play games when you arrive on site.  From the table below, you can see the schedule is filling up, and there is a great variety of events.  Bring a buddy and plan to enjoy the whole day with us.
