Rumors say that two large armies are converging on our little town of Pennsic to see who proves the victor. Don’t Panic! The good news is that War brings many things to our town of Pennsic. Along with battles, there will be merchants, entertainments, educational opportunities, and many activities for young and old alike.
There have been some wonderful changes to Pennsic this year. There is a new well supplying our town with more water and there are water treatment facilities that will chlorinate all water on site. We also have a new Great Hall for courts, exhibitions, and dancing at night. Although some “homes” have been displaced by these new features, our Department of Planning and Zoning is working hard to find new land for all those displaced or for those who prefer to relocate to quieter suburbs. The Barn that once held these activities now hosts an expanded market and a nice new restaurant.
Please read and follow the Pennsic 42 Site Rules carefully. We have rules for a reason and almost every one of them revolves around your safety and the safety of those around you. Just as last year, the parking policy is that when loading and unloading (if you are unable to pull into your camping area) you must park on the EAST (towards I-79) and NORTH (towards the main parking lot) sides of the streets. By parking on only one side of each street, you will ensure that other vehicles and emergency vehicles are able to pass. There are also some important things you need to know such as new Troll hours, event closing times, and new clean-up rules (please leave your campsite as good or better than you found it)–be sure to check the News regularly for important announcements.
As always Pennsic needs many volunteers to keep things running. Check at Information Point in the Town Hall to find out about the new Volunteer War Point and to see how you can help. Please also take time to thank a volunteer, a Pennsic staff member, or Cooper staff for all the time and effort they have put into this Pennsic–some giving up their entire vacation to make yours memorable.
Have a Safe and Happy Pennsic 42!
Yours in Service,
