There is going to be a small pirate encampment with some Black Powder demos'. 'Pirates For Sail' will be there both days. The Valhalla's Pirates will be doing there fight skits around the encampment as well.

I am sure as it gets closer more details will be posted.

I will be there as well helping out in the encampment. Sounds like a great time and everyone involved that I've spoken with has been very helpful and excited about this event. I will be bringing my "after hours" supply of rum and other liquors with me so if you do show up I'll save you a glass or four...

We had a ball and did some good business.

The dingy race was fun as hell. . .some VERY creative folks out there. The Beach Bash was standing-room only, to the point that I gave up any chance of getting photos of it. . . it was bikini city. . .fun to see but not a lot of pyracy on the beach (although with the hot sun, I can't blame 'em).

Saturday night was the Buccaneer's Bash at The Waterman's and it looked like half the town showed up and half of them were in some sort of pyrate costume. A couple of bands played, there were costume contests, and much rum-drinking. Our old friends from Pirates Choice Rum showed up and handed out free samples. There was much me drinking.

Sunday was a bit more subdued with some ominous clouds coming in about noonish, so we packed it in early and enjoyed everything happening in town which we'd not gotten to see yet. Downtown there were pirate booths selling garb and a pirate encampment on one side of the street and more of a flea market event on the other side. . . place was teaming with folks.

For a first year event, I thought it was done up pretty well and the scenery was great. You'll see it all in the autumn Pyrates Way!

If any of you were there we were crew members of the "Frig It". The large floating ship formed by 12 tethered dinghies. Great times, Great music, Great wenches, Great Rum!

Hope to see you all this year!

I'm packing to go right now. Four or five of my crew will be there as well. (I never did get my sword display rack finished, though. I'll lash something together when I get there.)

I will be there, possibly with family. I intend to bring salmagundi and a bottle of rum punch. Any Pubsters going too?

So my son and I went to Rock Hall and had a great time. It was much bigger and better attended than Lockhouse PirateFest, and I saw many of the folks who had been at Lockhouse up there, including Crimson Corsair and his excellent kit. I didn't bring salmagundi as I had hoped to, but I did bring my rum punch, which was popular among all the samplers. I met Steve Buckley and bought his children's pirate book Blackbear, in which adults may have fun by spotting all the names of historical pirates hidden in the book.

Here are some pictures.

Anyone else going to Rock Hall this year? It's August 8-10. I'll be there, this time with both rum punch and salmagundi, on Saturday.

Judging by last year, this is a great event, smaller than Hampton, but bigger than Lockhouse. It had a nice pirate encampment for the historically minded, and lots of games for the kids, and great pirate music. Hands-on swordfighting too. I enjoyed it very much, and hope to enjoy it again this year.
