    Greetings Me lord Capt Sterling, In me haste I fergot to add the link although if ye google it (St Augustine Pirate Gathering)we are right there at the top... My link Unfortunately we cannot camp on the fort grounds but if ye turn yer accommodations just right ye can ponder it from yer front door...bayfront is really cool as well with plenty of boats...there is a road between us and the fort and landlubbers shooting the tourists though...! The area is grassy and right downtown so as to make carousing real easy...Historical Camping is also open for the Friday for schools and public with Nautical demonstrations and much black powder firing....Set up can be as early as Thursday 11th...breakdown as late as Monday 15th.... Now if ye be taking a flying Bird Jacksonville is 1 hr away (some pick up can be arranged) Orlando is 3 hrs away and south....So if ye cant bring canvas.... Left. Johnson is our Historical Camp Host (Searles raid/ Drakes Raid) through Historical Florida Militia can arrange some canvas....Muskets/pistols have to fly in a locked box on the bird but we have Conrad of the Pirate Haus who may accept packages from UPS and Fed/Ex......but we have plenty of cannons and pikes...... The Battle is after the Pirate Boat Parade (11.00am) at approx 12.30 Saturday downtown at the City Gates....Militia may kill the survivors of the battle this year..... Francis field is three blocks from the Historical Camping and a nice walk excepting for all the people wanting ye picture....and we have another Cannon range set up there to do muskets and cannons.....We go through a lot of powder on this weekend......

Regards to ye me lord from THE wench Event Co-ordinator and Elder of Ancient City Privateers Inc. a 501© 3
  3. I would like to invite all to visit us here in St Augustine Florida for the St Augustine Pirate Gathering this November. If you haven't been to this Historical hamlet before allow us to give you a glimpse of the oldest continually lived in city in North America. It is because of the enduring work of re-enacting groups based in this town (Men of Menedez, Garrison, Men/women of Ponce De Leon, Ancient City Privateers with Crew of the Black Heart and not forgetting the brilliant crews of British Nightwatch) that we are able to do our live battles downtown amongst the backdrop of buildings footprinted in the late 1500 and early 1600's......450 years of history 300+ under the shadow of the Castillo De San Marcos This Fort was a defense system against future attacks by Pirates preying along the Eastern Coast. (see Searles Raid and Drakes Raid) Although Piracy in this town cannot boast (or wont) famous characters it was still supplied and well traded with by privateers and this helped keep it alive during it's lean years....Just wait until you walk through the town late at night down some of the "People only passageways". If you listen hard the history whispers to you and because of your garb and accouterments you can really stop the hearts of some of the "Ghost Hunters" Historical Camping is Downtown with the Fort as a backdrop in the secluded De Mesa Yard right on the Bayfront. Participant fees include Buccaneer Bash/dinner...Pub Crawl and Battle and Parade and lots of music and fun.....Please visit our web site often as we keep adding more to this weekend in our beautiful town.
  4. Pockets

    Hi there Capt......Here's how I do it ... 1. Mark pocket placement 2 Cut fabric pocket either way (three hoops or two or flap) sew three seams leaving the top open..iron and turn 1/2 inch seam allows good seating so you dont have to top stitch 3. cut two pieces of muslim 1/2 inch bigger than you want the finished pocket 4. place one piece of muslim on top of your chalked pocket line and the other on the bottom of your chalked line..leave at least a 1/2 inch gap...this gap can be smaller but it is the "Grip seam for the inside pocket) 5. sew top above line bottom muslim beneath line 6. cut along chalk line this should leave a 1/4 inch seam top and bottom Iron seams well 7. turn both pieces to the inside of the coat and pull them together along the side seams fiddle until the front looks tidy 8 sew sides and bottom 9. hand or machine sew top "Show" flap turning top seam inside itself..(or you can make the complete pocket already turned inside top seam before you put it on the finished coat THE wench
  5. New Pirate Museum!

    Pat Croche (I hope I spelt that right) Came to St Augustine to speak for the Passport Series.This is a series of lectures to get the public ready for the 450th celebebration startin in 2013-2015..I guess he fell in love with this great building right opposite fhe fort Castillo San Marcos (sic) and here he is...With the blessing of the the city to boot...Took us at the Pirate gathering many years to convince the City that Pirates are not all bad guys. The historical section for this years gathering is getting pretty strong right now with lots of support...He plans to tie the opening with this years "Pirate Gathering" in St Augustine and we should have plenty of tickets included or discounted for this opening.......<br>This years web site is still being added to...but you can all take a look if you like<br>
  6. Surgeon's Journal Web Page - Searle's Raid

    Hey Great job Mate..Funny and entertaining..Was interesting to see how others view us...Thankyou!!!! I'm going to share your link with the rest of the Crew from Ancient City Privateers..By the way it was Chris Clark who was fighting with Carlos and the chick that you called mellissa with the Giggle going in her shawl during the fight is Latina...Also the Women of the Spanish section roll the public lines out and keep the public entertained explaining what is going on nd stay ahead of the battle to keep the public safe..Dont get many Acalides for it but it's the reason why we can do this great live Battle stuff downtown.... Cant wait to read more of your adventures...... THE wench

  10. Thankyou very much for your great Baltimore hospitality...Ancient City Privateers (Bad Dog, THE wench, Carrie, Black Jim, Lady Red, Capt Jason and Vice Mayor of St Augustine Errol Jones) had a great time and was well worth the drive...Food was brilliant on Friday night too...Hope to see some of you for the Pirate Gathering in St Augustine in November where we can return the hospitality...We are still able to wear our weapons (so far as nobody has been stupid yet) but in this town the Garrison walks around fully loaded hoping to nail a quota of Pirates...Fortunately we have many letters of Marque.....Thank you again Great Show.....
