What we're about
Welcome to Frederick Warhammer 40K Gaming; Frederick, MD’s premier club for Warhammer 40k players and enthusiasts! We've been going strong for 4 years now, and couldn't have done it without the hard work and dedication of our members, so we are truly excited to bring another wargamer, club member, and future friend, into the fold.
To help familiarize yourself with the club, its members, and what we are planning for the future, we strongly encourage you to take the time to read through some of the topics on the discussion board and look through some of the previous meet-ups we've had. We have a lot going on, and want you to have every opportunity to participate. Of course, if you’re going through the discussion boards, and see anything you like, or have any ideas about how to do something, don’t hesitate to speak up; we’re always open to new ideas and suggestions about how to improve things.
Now, for the rules, which we really only have two of:
1. Adults—21 and older—ONLY!
2. Don’t be a NeckBeard.
We’re all here to have fun, and you should be too; if you have a disagreement with someone, or are struggling with something, stay calm, be polite, and ask the group about it. Remember, this might be an astronomically expensive game, but when it comes down to it, IT’S JUST A GAME! Don’t ruin everyone else’s good time be getting bent out of shape over toy soldiers! Be cool, and everyone else will be too.
We do drink alcohol during the course of most club events, so we encourage those of you who would like to join us to bring enough beverages for yourself, and maybe some to share too! The club may provide drinks and/or food from time to time, but bringing cash to contribute to a group lunch order is considered good manners.
Also, remember to ALWAYS drink responsibly; we’re a group of hobbyists who happen to enjoy sharing a few beers together, but we have a zero tolerance policy towards excessive drinking and/or drunk driving. If you think you've had too much to drink, STOP, and talk to another club member; most of us would be more than willing to give you a ride home.
Club dues are $10 a month (subject to change with limited notice), after your first month (free), and cover purchases of gaming mats, terrain, objective markers, and other club supplies. We will often discuss club purchases as a group, prior to spending club money, but Adam and Chris have final authority to decide what is purchased and when. If you have a financial hardship, or other situation, that prevents you from paying dues, contact Adam, and he will work with you to create an acceptable alternative to the normal dues.
We meet approximately every other Sunday in Frederick Maryland, with a whole host of other meet-ups scheduled here and there during the week, so be sure to check the calendar! Also, don’t forget that there is a lot of content on the group site, which cannot be accessed via the mobile version of the Meet-up app; make sure you log into a full version of the Meet-up site from time to time, so you don’t miss anything!
Again, welcome to the club, and remember… In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only WAR!!!
