Who runs Pennsic?
Like any other SCA event, the Pennsic War is organized and run by SCA particpants - all of them volunteers. The Mayor (or autocrat) has a staff of over 60 volunteers of division and department heads, plus their helpers, including Pennsic attendees (like you!) who volunteer to help out. Coopers' Lake functions (registration, the camp store, bank, cleaning services, grounds keeping, etc.) are handled by members of the Cooper and Wilver families and their staff. You can identify them by their dark blue t-shirts with the campground logo (and sometimes blue hospital "scrubs" shirts that are reserved for their use).
