Mini-Wars 2022 Venue Change

The IRS processed our Tax Exempt Reinstatement, but we still had to move the location of Mini-Wars. Due to the way their tax status is handled, the Army Navy Academy cannot not rent their building to outside groups unless they are tax exempt. As luck would have it, the notice was not processed until it was too late. The new location is in Anaheim at the Hobby Day Hall. There are 300 free parking spots in the stadium parking lot right across the alley in the back. Our Annual Membership Meeting will be held Saturday evening. The exact time will be announced soon.

  • Where: 1127 North Anaheim Boulevard, Anaheim. This is just south of the 91 Freeway and North of La Palma, on the west side of the street.
  • When: October 8th and 9th, 2022.
  • Times: Saturday 9:00AM until Midnight, Sunday, 9:00AM until 8:00PM
