Pike River Event Kenosha

76 posts in this topic

It was great playing with everyone at Kenosha this year. Two pirate groups made for even more fun by the beach.

There was an event up the hill from us, but I hardly ever got up there except to visit friends and relatives.

Special thanks from me to Brigands Folie for their music, Matt Utley for his Coq D'Vin, Captain Bo for his selections of rum, Captain Brian for taking me out in the Pirata Del'Lago, Valerie for letting me letting take the tiller on her boat, Lark for Fire-Dancing, Rats for being such a dude, and to everyone--too numerous to detail--else who helped make my hometown event my favorite event of the year.

Any ideas for next year?

I plan to bring all five of us next year. Having the park and the beach for the kids to play at makes this an ideal location for a short family vacation event. Thanks back to you Will for the Pyrat rum as well! B) Keep me "in the loop" for plans regarding next year so we can come prepared. Thanks to all the Wisconsin/area folk for such grand treatment for a hillbilly visitor!

My word...look at Morgan. She's grown so much over the last year.

Oh...and Billie looks good too.

My dear captain...

That's my good friend and partner from work Aaron! He's been wanting to join the crew and has been teaching ( ok trying to teach) ol' Rats a thing or two about stage combat. He worked live-steel and is very familiar with all the various forms.

At short notice he quickly put together a cutlass, blade and boarding axe demo and discussion for Pike.

I'll be honest, if it weren't for him and a few of my other buddies at work I wouldn't have both made it or even wanted to stay with my dept. He's a damn good man and if asked to sign articles, would make an excellent addition to the crew!

Great images there, Rats! Looks like it was absolute fantastic an' bleedin' fun! :::whimpers::: Pity I had to miss it. :unsure:

Hmmm... tha gunfire image with those 1812 soldiers and other colonial folks... a couple faces there who look familiar. Pick out John Saunter right away. :ph34r: Th' devil is so EASY to spot.

Thank ye for th' images, Rats.

Sounds like a plus, tell him to consider himself pressed...
