  1. Archangel Camp Planning

    Outstanding planning. One update to be made is the bushes shown around the edges have been removed. Sorry for the late notice. I will try to get measurements for you on Saturday.

  3. Happy Birthed Day Cap'nPern!

    Cheeky I just saw your wishes. Did we get to toast one? I think not. So we will have to make up for that. You are adorable! Thanks for saving the day as the narrator this past weekend. Yer Humble Servant... Cap'n Pern

  5. Hampton Blackbeard Pirate Festival '08

    It did take one back a bit, the crowd was bloody loud and then started insulting us as we passed. I rather enjoyed it as it gave one the chance to better imagine what folks went through during the beginnings of our war of Independence. Who ever got them pumped up on your side, did a brilliant job of it... I have some ideas of how to "grow" that scenario for next year, incorporating both the Harbor... oh wait, best not give it away... will pm you privately when I get back from Port Washington... hmmm I rather like be told I "smell like a French dog!" Ok so someone want to let me in on this taxation skit seeing as it wasn't on the schedule. IT sounds like it was pretty good.

    Aye but the buck/shilling stops with you, does it not? Aye sir the Shilling does stop with me! BTW why should I want Pirate Hunters to find me and me crew? So the next time our paths cross Captain Sterling, I assure you I will provide something for which you can blame me! ;-)
  7. Hampton Blackbeard Pirate Festival '08

    Now wait just a bloody minute! Wot did I have to do with lost pirate hunters? I refuse to take the blame on that one. I think...

    No effect on the Festival all the damage is south of the James River. Contacts over there say it's a mess and require massive cleanup but no fatalities.

    I look forward to your call Capt. Sterling. Captain Spike of the Bone Island Buccaneers called me today.
  10. Hampton Blackbeard Pirate Festival '08

    I can add a little bit more to keep you chomping at the bit. We are looking for Militia to man the waterfront docks to protect the ships from the pirates that will be invading. Also a Dock Master. PM me with ideas. An additional skit on Friday afternoon on the docks before the Grand Pirates Ball. The Mill Point Park Stage will become the Bunch of Grapes Tavern for the weekend. Complete with Bar serving Goslings Black Seal and Ale. The period Dinner Saturday night will take place at the Bunch of Grapes Tavern. There will be a colonial gaming table and tables to sit and eat inside the tavern. The encampment will be larger. Plans for the encampment are underway. Small boat battle up the river near the stage. I will add more as the plans become more solid. Your Humble Servant.
  11. Welcome to the news forum for Blackbeards Crew the Pressgang Master Dutchman will be handling the communications via this forum.

    Captain Sterling and Cheeky Actress, There is a possibility that there will be a fire pit sufficient to feed an army. Are you prepared to feed 100 pyrates? Not firming anything up but seeing if the exuberance for the fire pit can be taken advantage of... Dutchman tells me you are going to provide some video of your past attacks on unsuspecting victims. Any progress on that Captain? Cap'n Pern

    ::Cap'n Pern accepts and returns the kiss from the Southern Chesapeak Bay:: I drank several fer ya lass... But it's not the same without the purple lobster... I still don't have a tattoo but I was the poster pirate this year. If you like I can give you an autographed copy:-)
  18. It would be appearin' that there ain't been much communications goin' on in this here forum So I be flyin' dis topic up the flagstaff as a means o' signal'n visiting pyrates and Participating Crews with information concerning them. Topics of Discussion will be (but not limited to!) SAFETY!!!! Mr Steele will be presiding over matters of Blades and Black Powder weapons at the event. Blade and Black Powder Weapons (pistols, long arms, and cannons) will be inspected and tagged by a safety officer as either SAFE (fireable at designated events) or UNSAFE (NOT USABLE AT ANY TIME). ENCAMPMENT: Discussion for participating Crews in the encampment. Displays that will be set up, acceptable utensils (no soda cans), Period attire. Should we post rules here? VISITING PIRATES: We want to make sure this years festival is a bigger success than ever. There are some new things that will be unfolding here so stay in touch. SCHEDULES: What will be goin' on, when, and where. Timing is everything! So pyrates can be aware of the plunder that awaits!!(figuratively speaking mind ye!) I will be expectin' ta see some signal'n occurin' 'ere. Carry On!!!! Cap'n Pern Press Gang Master Blackbeard's Crew Hampton, VA

    The afternoon four to eight watch is broken down into two dog watches. The first, 4:00 pm-6:00 pm and the second 6:00 pm -8:00 pm. The first bell is struck on the half hour after the beginning of the watch and an additional bell each half hour till the end of the watch. Eight bells is the end of watch. Therefore 6:00 pm would be the right time to arrive at the meeting. Cap'n Pern

    If memory serves, this is right next to the Air and Space Museum, correct? Normally we meet on the second Thursday of the month. You are correct about the location of the Public Piers office. This weeks meeting will be at a members house for a christmas dinner. We are in search of a new permanent location for out meetings.
