Children's Water Battle Rescue Hoped For

The economy and illness are attempting to take the Children’s Water Battle off the Pennsic schedule. Merriment is a hard thing to kill, though. Thanks to the efforts of Her Majesty of Aethelmearc, Tessa, the Pennsic Fort may still run wet with water this year.

Last Minute Preparations for Pennsic War

Get ready! It’s almost time to go!

Pack Your Car—If you can, start packing a day or two ahead of your departure date, so you can make sure everything fits. Give some thought to packing the items you will need first, such as your tent, on top so that they are easily accessible. Make sure to double-check roof racks, hitches, bungee cords, etc. to make sure everything is secure. If in doubt, take the vehicle for a spin on a nearby highway before you leave.
