Message and Update from the Mayor Pennsic 49

G'Day Everyone,

f

The year 2020 has been one that we will remember for the rest of our lives for many reasons. Some, because of loved ones we have lost, some because for the first time we have seen the world in turmoil and some because we have been unable to relax and do the things we would normally do. Whatever the reason is, we will get through this together.

It is not my job to interpret the reasons for everything that has happened in 2020, apart from my personal view that I can’t wait for 2020 to just sod off!!

But I digress, this short note is to keep you up to date with where we are for Pennsic 49 in 2021. In November, the Pennsic Staff group, the Coopers Management Group, and I had a joint physical and zoom meeting to discuss the way forward for Pennsic 49. The single message you need to transmit and the message you need to take from the meeting is that we are continuing to plan on having Pennsic 49 in July/Aug 2021 at Coopers Lake Campground.

The Pennsic Staff and Coopers Management are working jointly on plans to make Pennsic 49 as safe as it can possibly be for attendees. This will mean some changes to the way we do things, but we are committed to making those changes as seamless and simple as possible so that Pennsic 49 can happen and we can all have a great relaxing holiday and Pennsic War.

I want to thank you all for your support and most of all for your curtailing of the rumour mill, which I have to say has been nothing short of amazing. I will continue to be transparent in our planning and keep you informed so that any decisions we make will be understood and not a surprise to people.

As more things line up, I will update you all so that you can be kept informed and plan your Pennsic 49 journey to once again celebrate together in friendship and combat. Thanks again and please have a happy and safe Christmas and New year. Gregory of Lochswan Mayor Pennsic War 49

Greeting good gentles of the Known World.

While we are 'playing war' with our friends, many others are fighting a war for their lives. Every blood donation is a chance to save a life, so please remember there will be a Red Cross blood drive during Pennsic.

Place: Zion Baptist Church, 148 Curry Road, Slippery Rock, PA
Dates: Monday, August 5th
Times: 10 am to 3:30 pm

The church is within walking distance of the Pennsic site, but the Red Cross will run a shuttle bus (leaving from the south end of the battlefield). We encourage you to ride the bus so that you arrive with normal pulse and blood pressure, and are not turned away from donating!

Pre-registration

If you would like to pre-register to donate, volunteer to help, or would just like more information, please contact me by July 26th.

You can also pre-register on-line at www.redcrossblood.org. Search for blood drives in zipcode 16057, and choose your appointment time. (Note: we are in the process of registering our drive.)

Once War is underway, you can sign up at First Aid Point. Walk in's are welcome, however, the Red Cross bases their staffing on pre-registration numbers, so the more people who pre-register before War, the more staff we may get.

Identification is now required for all Red Cross Blood donors. 
Preferred methods of ID are:

  • American Red Cross donor card
  • Driver's license
  • State ID
  • Passport
  • Military ID
  • INS "green" card

A student ID, corporate ID, or credit card is also acceptable if it contains a photo. There is a secondary list of acceptable identification, available at First Aid Point or you can e-mail me.

Together, we can make a difference. So, "Be a Hero, Save a Life at Pennsic War."

In Service and Thanks,
Baroness Angelique d'Herisson
