Unto Their Royal Majesties, Highnesses and Coopers Lake Officials does Sir Valdemar Ironfist of Calontir Send Greetings and These Words,
I am writing to express my profound disappointment that in the Pennsic schedule there are no Warpoint battles scheduled for the last Saturday. Although I do not consider myself an "Old Timer" in the Society, I remember Pensic Wars that had bridge battles on Sunday morning. The schedule has continually been cut back to the point now that no organized battles occur on Saturday. Much less Warpoint battles. This results in many of the attendees packing up and leaving on Saturday. The traffic that this engenders, the empty camps, trash that is dumped and the Coopers seeing fit to use their front end loading tractors to deal with the trash, effectively ends the war on Saturday. As far as I am concerned, I and the other attendees of the War are paying for a day of War we do not receive. Why is this being done? Is it necessary? Do the Coopers not make enough money on the War that they could give up a day, or several, that is not "officially" part of the War for clean up? If everyone is required to leave on Sunday, why can't we have battles on Saturday? I do not send these words in anger but in sadness and because I feel I must speak out on something that is not right. I pray you who have the power to do something about this, to do it.
