Greetings Dancers!

Another Pennsic War has come and gone, and while battles (and storms)  
raged all around, we danced the days away. As always, the dancing was  
facilitated by countless volunteers who kept the dance pavilion  
running smoothly.

I would like to particularly thank a few people who took on  
particularly important tasks. As in recent years, Darius was in charge  
of setting up and taking down the dance floor, for which all of our  
feet are grateful. Aaron and Jadzia did an excellent job performing  
maintenance on the Pennsic Pile and organizing musicians for evening  
dancing. Lorita (though she was not able to attend the war herself)  
provided articles in the Pennsic Independent promoting dance, as well  
as the daily announcement flyers. Guillaume provided support for both  
Darius and Lorita. Also I would like to thank Conrad and Gregory for  
their offers of assistance.

The evening revels during the second week are always a highlight of  
the war, and they were all excellent this year. Many thanks to  
Patches, Wilhelm and Conandil, Margaret and Felice, and Mirabella for  
hosting balls for the rest of us to enjoy.

Of course, the days were filled with dancing as well, and thanks for  
that goes to all of the people who volunteered their time to teach  
classes. There were old standards and new research alike, providing  
exciting dance opportunities for both newcomers and old hands. We were  
also grateful to be invited to teach a track of classes at Casa  
Bardicci this year, which hopefully will become an annual tradition.  
There are too many names to list here, but to all of the teachers who  
came this year I extend my most heartfelt gratitude.

A great number of musicians made themselves available for both classes  
and revels, and for that I thank them as well.

It's never too early to start working on new classes or planning  
delightful parties. The next year will pass quickly, and soon enough  
it will be time to do it all over again!

Ever in service,
Lorenzo Petrucci
