Seven Years War Convention - August 5th through 7th, 2021


Seven Year War Association Convention August 5-7, 2021

The annual SYWA Convention is being held this year in South Bend, IN at the usual venue, Waterford Estates Lodge. However, the hotel has changed its name to Ramada By Wyndam South Bend. The hotel was acquired and renovated by Ramada Inns earlier this year. 

Here are some links to nearby hotels. The Ramada is likely booked full due to convention guests  booking rooms there, but give it a try anyway, you never know. The other two hotels are within 1-2 miles of the Ramada and are on the same road.

Hilton Garden Inn - St. Mary's

Covid protocols are on the "honor system" in which no masks are required if you have been vaccinated, but you will be asked to self-report  and wear a mask if you have not been vaccinated, but the latter is entirely up to you. Just do what you think is the right thing and be respectful of others.

I will be running the Battle of Freeman's Farm scenario on both Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon. I may also host a small and fun skirmish game on Saturday evening.

Bringing Limited Amount of F&D and Minden Stock to the Convention

I will be bringing a limited amount of stock to sell from my Fife and Drum Miniatures/Minden Miniatures dealer booth this year: the entire AWI range, and SYW Austrians, Prussians and artillery equipment. 

If you wish to pre-order any of these or any of the figure ranges that I am not bringing to the show (British, Hanoverians, French and Russians) then I will pack your order and bring it with me to the convention. No payment required until you pick up your order at my booth. Or you can order via this web store (and pay at the time of your order) and enter a note that you wish to pick up your order at the show, rather than having me mail it to you.
