Dave Cooper was made a Baron jointly by the East and the Midrealm during the 22nd great Pennsic War, held at Cooper’s Lake, his home. He loved and served the SCA for the many years that Pennsic has come to Cooper’s Lake, not only running the War Room, but making the roads we are all so familiar with. — Alison Gregg Choyce
