Are you looking for a way to lend a hand? Have some spare time and
want to have some fun? Be a waterbearer!
Water jugs - We need donations!
The Pennsic waterbearers need your empty bottles! Please bring any
clean, gallon-sized plastic jugs up to the battlefield. There will
be a clearly marked place to leave them.
War Week Assignments
Each day of the week has been assigned to a particular kingdom or
group of kingdoms. The list is below. On that day, your kingdom is
responsible for filling jugs, collecting empties and refilling. It
may not sound like much, but this is the most labor-intensive part of
waterbearing at Pennsic - there are over 500 jugs to be filled each
day! We will begin filling two hours before each battle. Since
battles begin early this year, you can choose to come out the evening
before to fill jugs as well. Please give a few hours of your time
Sunday, 8/10 Calontir
Monday, 8/11 East
Tuesday, 8/12 Atlantia
Wednesday, 8/13 Middle
Thursday, 8/14 East Allies
Friday, 8/15 Mid Allies
Saturday, 8/16 Aethelmearc
