All event planning and discussions are now in this Event Planningforum. All MWG 501st members should have access to it.
The event posts on open/public forums/boards will only be the details of the events themselves.


I encourage all members who are planning or proposing events or reporting on convention information that date submissions be made to the Garrison calendar. If you know of a convention that you would like to be included on the calendar, PLEASE make a submission and include as much explanatory information and interactive links as you would like. It might offer our members and anyone who refers to our calendar an other source of information and that may facilitate their participation at events.
