Unto the dance community of Pennsic and beyond, do I, Margherita
Battistina, wish to convey my deepest gratitude for a wonderful Pennsic!  I
have been overwhelmed by the show of support you gave me this year, and I
can only hope you had as fantastic a Pennsic as I.

Now that we are all home and settling back into our other lives, I would
like to ask you to think back on your experiences in the Pennsic Dance
Pavilion this year, and send me your feedback.  Were there things you
especially liked, people you’d like to compliment, or problems of which I
should be made aware?  Please let me know by sending me an email at pennsic
(dot) eurodance (at) gmail (dot) com.

I experienced so many wonderful things this year, but I’d like to highlight
some of my favorites:
> The European Dance Flash Mob was so awesome that Pennsic site staff came
out and took videos of it!  One of them allowed me to upload their video,
which you can all now watch here:!
> We had more compliments in the Comments box commending the Youth Dance
Track and the people who made it happen than we had about everything else
> There was an actual, unplanned proposal during Saturday night’s ball!
> The Class Attendance Contest was a huge hit, and the winner had 20 beads!

It takes so many people to make this event happen, and while I have your
attention I’d like to thank all that I can.  The list is long, but every
one of these people deserves our thanks!

Floor Coordinators and Pavilion Steward, Lord Connor Roe, Lord Vels inn
Viggladi, Lord Gwommy Arpad and THL Darius the Dancer – without whom the
floor literally would never have happened!
And to the 14 people who volunteered at the Floor setup and the 22 who
volunteered at Floor break-down – I’m sorry I don’t know all of your names,
but your service is greatly appreciated!

And lastly, I’d like to thank the entire Pennsic Staff for making this
event happen.  Without them, we would not have electricity and lights, the
fabulous new registration system, supplies for the dance floor, the tent
would not be up and ready for our use when we arrive, and so much more.
 These people work very hard to make a little magic for us all, and I am
grateful that they do.
