Pennsic Map

This has been one of my back burner projects for a long time.  I've been doing A LOT of ArcGIS Online maps for my day job lately.  Figured it was about time to get this one done before we head off to Pennsic 44 this year.

I downloaded the overlap map from the Pennsic War site today, 7/23/15.  The map image is from last year, Pennsic XLIII (43; 2014).  It was made by "Aakin".  I don't know Aakin, but would like to thank him for his excellent map.  I hope he doesn't mind me georeferencing and loading it up to ArcGIS Online for all to use and admire.  I'll ask around Pennsic when I get there.  Hopefully he'll be there.

Also, Cooper's Lake Campground has had a lot of rain this year and have had to close some camping blocks.  Here is a link to the Facebook post.  Check the Facebook page for the latest updates.

"[It's] not dead."

Apparently the SCA Board of Directors had a meeting recently:

I was quite surprised to read the Society Seneschal's comment, "The Known World map project is running into issues because of problems with zip code reporting."

I can't believe it has already been a year since I last worked on this project.  Over the summer, at Pennsic, I got to show Master Phillip Reed, Society Seneschal, the project on my iPhone.  He was super excited about it.

Now that I have stepped-down as the Seneschal of my local branch (Chapter President), maybe I'll finally have time to jump back on this project.  It was really interesting and fun.

Also, I don't know if I mentioned it previously or not, but I have stepped-up as the East Kingdom Postal Legatus (Keeper of the Kingdom postal codes.  Also, interestingly, an office created by Master Phillip when he was East Kingdom Seneschal.)  That's been an interesting job too.

Anyway, "I feel happy!"
