The Watch

Watch Commander

Master Dietrich Schwelgengräber, OL

The Watch tent is located at the corner of Dragon Trace and Brewer's Road, opposite from Troll (see map).

The Watch is here to support you in having a pleasing and memorable event. Please feel free to visit with any questions or concerns you may have.

Here are some quick highlights to ensure that you all have a problem-free vacation:

As we have always asked in the past, please remember the ideals of our Society and treat each other with courtesy and respect.

We look forward to assisting you in whatever way we can and greatly appreciate your support in helping us make this a safe and fun vacation for everyone.


As always, we are looking for volunteers to staff The Watch.

We welcome volunteers for cart patrols. Please sign up at The Watch Point; you must be 18 years of age or older and have a valid driverís license.

Children at Pennsic

All Parents are asked to read the site rules regarding children and minors at Pennsic. (Site rules are also in the Pennsic booklet given to all Pennsic attendees.) The Watch and Pennsic are not a babysitting service. Please take care of your children and please remind them of curfew rules.


As Pennsic attendance increases, so do the number of vehicles on site. Please read the details of the Traffic and Parking Policies section of the Site Rules closely.

Important Notes:

Park on one side of the road: When loading/unloading your vehicle, if you are unable to pull into your camping area, please park on the EAST side of the road (toward I-79) or NORTH side of the road (toward the main parking lot). By parking on only one side of each road, you will ensure that other vehicles are able to pass.

Keep the roads open: It is extremely important that the roads remain passable so emergency and working vehicles can get through. In past years, we have come close to losing the bus service because of vehicles blocking the road.

Move all vehicles to the parking lot: Upon completion of loading or unloading, all vehicles are to be moved to the parking lot. Vehicles may NOT be left in camp. Set up your camp after you have parked your car.

Towing: Vehicles left in camp or parked in violation of the parking policies will be towed, and repeat offenders will be removed from the site.

For those who have helped us in the past with keeping the roads clear, we would like to thank you. We greatly appreciate your support in helping to make this a safe and fun vacation for everyone.

Mobility Assistance

We have a three Disability Transportation carts (DART) to assist individuals who are unable to use the buses.
