  4. Welcome aboard!

    Hi Maties, New to the pyracy group and would like to introduce myself. I am Craig Bachler aka "The Gov". Currently, I live in Tampa Bay, but a New Englander by birth. We (my family) and I have been active in krewe life since moving here in 2002. We are members of a local krewe of almost 300 members that is one of the few true black powder re-enacting groups in Florida. Generally, we can be found at festivals across the South throughout the year. Safe Sailing, The Gov

    Hey Maties, Being a former New Englander and now in the Tampa region, I feel yer pain. Some time ago, Glouster had a festival. I think is is now no longer. I have done several small events here in Florida and if yer interested, reach out and I will be happy to share my experience and contacts. Perhaps come down to Florida during one of our events to get some ideas on how to organize and talk to the organizers. Reach out and let me know when you might be interested and I will let you know what festival is happening.
