Pirates of Paynetown - Southern Indiana

8 posts in this topic

Hello everyone,

Wanted to remind you that Pirates of Paynetown is just around the corner. We still have some room for camps, but space is filling FAST! We are now more than halfway to our maximum camp limit of 50 camps.

It is important that you pre-register! You will not be able to set up and participate if you do not register!

Please go to www.piratesofpaynetown.orgto register.

So who is planning on coming?

We currently have over 30 camps registered, 9 boats, 7 cannons and a LOT of pirates!

Bleedin' devils. ;)

I had hoped I'd be able to make it this year. But recent issues have made it impossible for me t' do so.

I do hope to make it next year though. ;)

Great Lakes River Pirates are very much looking forward to this event. The reservoir is so beautiful this time of year, even more so when full of all those fantastic period boats. Thank you again for all your hard work to keep it alive Nathan! Rest assured, it hasn't gone unnoticed or unappreciated.

See everyone in a few weeks.

We need volunteers to do programs. If anyone is coming and is interested in performing or doing something exciting and visible, ie harrass the public, etc, let me know! Thanks!

ALSO: We only have 17 tickets left. Once they're all sold, we will hold the drawing. Why wait if they're all sold, right? Pirates have no patience... B)

Well folks, it's getting closer! Here is the schedule. (Subject to change...)

Remember, you can always come visit for the day even if you can't camp. (I recommend this for locals...)

We still have about 5 slots open for campsites if anyone is interested in registering. Remember, you MUST be pre-registered to camp!

Plus watch period boats sailing around the lake, historical pirates in camp, cannons, 18th Century British, Scottish and French government troops, period merchants, and lots of fun! All the pirates will talk to you, so feel free to interact!

There is also a possibility of a super-amazing top-secret show that might happen if the crew can make it... :)

We also have some really cool stuff planned for the battles and other interpretations!
