Behind every great "master builder" there's a team of dedicated assistants
In -this- the first weekend of the Castle Project, not only did we successfully break ground and get some impressive ditches dug for the castle (thanks to the dedicated help from Dave "not the Cooper"), but construction of the actual castle began. Everybody found something to do whether it was filing corner brackets, painting the the brackets, cutting wood, drilling holes, erecting walls, serving food and water, or placing washers on lag bolts.. no job was to BIG or too SMALL.. everyone pitched in and worked together and accomplished more than expected for the first weekend's efforts.
For information on this GREAT Fortress or to volunteer to help during a construction weekend, please contact Munenori
"This project is not only for the enjoyment of the people who built it, nor is it only for Pennsic-goers this year. We are building this fortress to use for a long time and for the enjoyment of everyone who comes to see it and play on or around it".---Munenori
To give you an idea of just how BIG this project is.. When completed, the Pennsic Fortress will be (these are estimated) 260 feet wide (end to end) ~ 12 foot tall ~ with an approximate square footage of 26,000 feet. Inside the gate towers, there will be an inner tower as well. Schematics of the overall fortress will be posted shortly.
Also, we will be posting the names of all those who came out and helped with this project.
