Throwback Thursday: Pennsic War XXIII
|Me and someone’s scooter disguised as a “horse”.|
This goes back 21 years to Pennsic War XXIII. My 13-year-old daughter and I had more fun than a passel of puppies!
We’d been in the SCA about 4 years. Just enough time to acquire:
- enough period-style camp clothing
- enough camp gear
- tent camping experience
- SCA background information
- resources to care for our pets at home
Why so much preparation? What’s the big deal?

Pennsic War is the SCA’s largest single annual event. Over 10,000 people attend each year. It lasts way over a week, each August. It is phenomenal, really!

Besides watching battles, shopping and classes, I ate and drank amply at Calontir’s Wednesday Cocktail Party and saw its Court on Friday. Here’s a link I found to the huge activities list for Pennsic XXIII.
