Unto the fantastic populace of North Woods,

We are glad to report that we were able to attend every canton’s business meeting this past month. The Barony of North Woods is alive and well. Thank you for welcoming us and listening to all of our plans for Pennsic! We were asked to post our plans so that all may peruse them at their leisure.

 As of this missive the encampments of North Woods and Between Someplace and Elsewhere (our camp) are both located in B04.We have been told that two blocks at on the Serengeti will no longer be used for camping (one has the new barn and the other has a dirt bike track) so the groups in those two blocks will be moved to other areas. Because we may have new groups in B04, we will continue to camp in our traditional spots and not merge our two encampments. You are welcome to visit us any time we are in camp (the SW corner of B04), which, truth be told, isn’t often. However we will endeavor to fly the North Woods war banner whenever we are in camp for an extended period of time. We will also have a notebook available for messages. 

Our entire schedule for the full two weeks of Pennsic is located at: http://michiganleftturn.org/Pennsic-2013-Calendar.pdf  

We have always been very busy at Pennsic and now are going to be even busier. The following schedule is where we would like help: 


Before Pennsic: 

We are making towel bags for all of the fighters. We will need water bottles, trail mix and oranges or apples for the bags. Please let us know if you can donate any of these items! If you’re not going to Pennsic, feel free to provide any nonperishable fighter food and give it to someone who is going to Pennsic.
