Erin of Darkyard

So this morning I went to help at Waterbearer's Point. Despite the controversy over liabilities, there is still a need for water on the battlefield. Put several hundred guys in metal armor in the hot sun on a battlefield for hours on end and you, too, can see the need.

Over the years the service has evolved. There is a system for sanitizing the water jugs. The water is filtered and the jugs filled. And then volunteers transport filled water jugs to the field.

This morning I met a young lady named Erin over the tedious chore of filling water bottles. Pleasant surprise! She is from my own area. She is also an incredibly hard worker who deserves much praise for her contributions to Pennsic services! The picture here is of Erin standing in front of a few of the jugs she filled.
