Re: [Mid] Pennsic 31 archery
- Greetings to Master Hroar,
When this option was first considered, handicap access was one of the
first things which came to mind (given the site). Dave Cooper has yet
to do the necessary earth moving, but it is my understanding that he
is going to try to provide better access to the top by re-grading the
paths (if that is possible). We do not currently have a schedule, but
it is fair to expect this work to be completed by early Spring of
next year. Announcements will be made. It is also our intention to
have haywagon access to the range, which should make it accessible
for most differently-abled gentles.
If the grading and wagon access ultimately prove to be problematic,
we will have to see what our options are at that point. I assure you
that we wish to make this as accessible as anything else at Pennsic.
Yours in Service,
speaking in this instance for Master Mark Squirrelsbane and Mistress
