Drumbeat X
Historical Miniature Game Day

Saturday February 4th 2017

Current PEL
The drums are beating, bugles are blaring, and bayonets are flashing,
which can only mean it is time to march out the troops for some good ole gaming!

  The 2017 Drumbeat historical miniature game day will once again be held at the Lake City Community Center from 8am to 5pm. The community center is an excellent space for gaming, with plenty of light, tables and chairs all of which make for an ideal day of gaming. A small $10 donation is requested for those attending.

Flea Market Tables
There will also be flea market tables available for those interested in selling some old miniatures and rules. The cost is 10% of your sales, taken at the time of the transaction.

 

Gaming Tables
The basic gaming table is 8’ x 6’ (two 8’ x 3’ tables put together), but there are smaller tables (6’ x 3’) that you can use to create a smaller or larger area, such as for a 6’ x 9’ table for example.

 

Open Gaming
There are open tables for anyone who just wants to bring their miniatures, terrain and rules to game. So if the weekend opens up for you at the last minute, do not hesitate to bring your game and we'll find a spot for you!
