This fall, the action picks up again for HMGS-Midwest members with two sponsored events!

Birth of the United States Navy

Museum of the Sailor Great Lakes Naval Station,  Saturday, October 13, 2018, 9am – Noon

Cost – Free for HMGS-Midwest members (non-members can join HMGS-Midwest – $10)

HMGS-Midwest members will be going up against Naval Personnel again, this time to commemorate the birth of the US Navy. We will be conducting a series of naval duels using Ares Games Sails of Glory basic rules [no experience necessary] spanning from the Revolutionary War [Bonhomme Richard vs Serapis] to the War of 1812 [Constitution vs Guerriere]. The plan is that everyone will be able to play in each of the six duels – we will keep a running count of victories for each side to claim bragging rights.  There will be plenty of extra ships available for pickup duels as well.

Please sign up now space may be limited. Contact Steve Fratt at president@hmgsmidwest.com with following information: Name, telephone #, preferred email
