I have a friend who lives in Burke, so I'll ask him for any suggestions to your request.

I'll be arriving in late August, about a month and half from now. I've heard of WashingCon and the Congress of Gamers and there's a pretty big FLGS in downtown D.C., was wondering if there was something closer to home in Alexandria.

You want to get in touch with the Kingstowne Gaming Brigade (KGB). Sessions are in Alexandria. Run by (or at least used to be) by an ex-military guy named Fred Bauer. Wargames strong but they play other games too. Sorry, I dropped off the list and no longer have the email address but you should be able to find it.

Congress of Gamers is bringing one of its cons to Northern Virginia at the end of August. The big military game is a Wings of War mega-game to be played on the Westin's huge and magnificent board room table. Kaarin Engelmann has agree to lead this and lend her stunning collection of planes. Should be amazing.

Lots of other con stuff, as well. The con's vendor is The Compleat Strategist, located in Fall's Church. http://www.thecompleatstrategist.com/
