Announcements received from officers and event staff
Greeting good gentles of the Known World. The Pennsic War will soon be upon us, and while we are ‘playing war’ with our friends, many others are fighting one for their lives. Every blood donation is a chance to save a life, so please remember there will be a Red Cross blood drive at Pennsic War 36.
The 5th annual blood drive will take place on Friday, August 3rd and Monday, August 6th from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Zion Baptist Church, 148 Curry Road, Slippery Rock, PA.
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that Prado Park has had a major utility failure. Please be assured that this happened a few days ago and is simply the result of old equipment and wiring. There are no indications that there was any tampering or foul play.

The questions were pointed and sometimes angry, and the responses did not always satisfy the crowd, but tempers remained largely in check during an hour-long public meeting held Wednesday afternoon by Pennsic 35 Mayor Baroness Brise Sanguin, OP, outside the First Aid Pavilion, formerly Chirurgeon’s Point.
And in response to the foremost question on the minds of many there– exactly what had transpired to cause the mayor to turn over operation of the Point to NorthWest EMS – though Mayor Brise remained unspecific on the details, citing privacy issues, she did say that some chirurgeons at the War had “exceeded [the] authority” of their mundane first aid certifications, which had given her “grave concerns” and led to the action.
“We had gotten to the point it wasn’t one or two people,” she said.
Due to a number of incidences with regard to Chirurgeon Care, I, the Mayor, have elected to employ a policy written into the Society Chirurgeon’s Handbook, section III, subsection 11 paragraph 2 which states “There is no requirement that the Chirurgeonate be functioning at any event.

Pennsic 35 Mayor Baroness Brise Sanguin, OP, issued a written statement late Tuesday night that confirms that she alone made the decision to place operation of Chirurgeon’s Point under the supervision of NorthWest EMS, as well as dismisses a number of rumors that have been circulating about the change.

Pennsic always changes from year to year, and the most obvious change for Pennsic XXXVI will be its starting date.
As announced earlier this summer, next year’s Pennsic will start on Friday, July 27 and will run through Sunday, August 12.
As of early Saturday morning, Pennsic 35 Mayor Baroness Mistress Brise Sanguin has placed Chirurgeon’s Point under the management of NorthWest EMS service of McKees Rock, Penn. First aid services are still available to all War participants free of charge, 24 hours a day, just “under new management,” according to the War’s media liaison, Master Corun MacAnndra.

When last we left Gleann Abhann at the end of the last Pennsic War, they were a Principality about to take the great step into Kingdom status. Preparations were well underway for the October first Coronation, and all was well.
Due to an increase in printing prices, The Pennsic Independent is being forced to raise the price for the Pennsic newspaper for the first time in five years.
