I will be running my first game ever at the annual Barrage convention in Maryland put on by the Harford Area Weekly Kriegspielers (the HAWKS). In addition to their own wonderful one day convention, the HAWKS run numerous outstanding games every year at each of the three HMGS, Inc conventions (Cold Wars, Fall In!, and Historicon).
