  1. Happy Beerthday Pyracy Pub!

    A GLORIOUS Rolicking Birthday to the Pyracy Pub! I was here from the start, and though I may not be around much nowadays, I'm delighted to see how it has survived and grown after all these years.

Annual artillery show and fundraiser that supports the Fort MacArthur Museum. The event is held on the weekend following the Fourth of July holiday. Various military organizations and groups (from ancient Roman Legionnaires to the Modern era) support the event. All group encampments are focused on accurately presenting life as it was in the past. The museum is located in Angels Gate Park, 3601 South Gaffey Street, in the historic harbor city of San Pedro, California. Old Fort MacArthur Days is a blank fire event. Many historical reenactment groups will be firing various weapons during the course of the event, and there will be a massed fire by cannons at the end of the day. Two groups of privateers will be on hand, the Rogue Privateers, and the Port Royal Privateers. The Rogue Privateers will raid for items and then auction them off to benefit the museum.

  10. Commodore Norrington (aka Tom) is just back from the Philippines & NEEDS a ride from L.A. area for him and his lady to NorCal Pirate Fest. Can anyone from SoCal help? Email him at: teacher_tom516@yahoo.com If you don't know/remember who Tom is, here is his MySpace profile: http://www.myspace.com/norrington516 Tom had planned to go to the Long Beach Pirate Invasion and just found out it was canceled, so he contacted me to find out what other pirate things were going on in the next few weekends so he could meet his pirate mates. (He is in S. Calif. for just a month or so). When he heard about NorCal Pirate Fest, he was eager to go. Can anyone help? We have no room in our truck to help them. --Jamaica Rose
  11. The 2010 event has been cancelled. Will not be at Rainbow Lagoon or Belmont Shore this year. --Jamaica Rose
  12. April 9th, 10th, & 11th 2010 | 6th Annual Fells Point Privateer Da

    Cap'n Michael and I had a grand time at the pyrate rendezvous in Fells Point. And we've mostly recovered by now. It was great to meet up with a lot of old friends, and to make a lot of new friends. I've finished posting most of my photos from the Fells Point Privateer Day and Order of the Leviathan festivities. They can be found at the No Quarter Given facebook page in several batches (Facebooks only allows 200 photos per album), and at the No Quarter Given MySpace page (in two albums - one each for Friday and Saturday). Tagging and comments are welcomed. My photos are copyrighted, but if you'd like to use some of yourselves for your personal pages, you may do so. I'd appreciate if you let me know about it though. For those of you desirin' a higher rez version, contact me privately. facebook.com/noquartergiven http://www.myspace.com/no_quartergiven Yrs in the sweet trade, --Jamaica Rose
  13. Today my husband Michael connected with one of the Texas Riviera Pistolers, who gave him a couple pounds of powder. That will be enough for his needs. It's nice to know that a bunch of cowboys would be so helpful to some strange pirates. Greydog - thank you for your very helpful suggestion. --Jamaica Rose
  14. Thanks Greydog - I'll try contacting some of them when the hour is a little more decent.
  15. My husband and a few other erstwhile pirates are entertaining at the Buccaneer Days in Corpus Christi, TX. They are running out of blackpowder, and have tried to buy blackpowder locally, and cannot find it. Does anyone have any suggestions for a place to buy blackpowder that is somewhat close to Corpus Christi? Apparently Texas recently passed some law that blackpowder has to be kept in a certain kind of container, and a lot of the stores that previously carried it, decided not to get the container and just stopped carrying blackpowder. Thank you, --Jamaica Rose
