My apologies. I saw it was located in the wrong forum, but I was tied up with something else so didn't get a chance to move it until now.

Ah Corsair, too long has it been since I seen ye post on these pages, I hope all be well with ye kith and kin.

Cheers, I say, cheers, for this event which grew from very humble beginings ( as ye well know, better then most).

Favorite moment(s):

1) Way back when it was a wee pubcrawl, confined to 200 or so bretheren - the singing in the square after midnight,

along with other pirates who were in thier cups.

2) When the manhole covers on the street blew up, during The Brigands performance last year!

3) Firing our cannon from the deck of one of the pirate ships last year, during the sea battle. Gave my crew a real taste of true engagement conditions and rate of fire!

We def have to hook up after hours for some real drinking!

Ahhh... you guys were sailing rings around us. And I'll never forget the look on your face as you put fire to powder... it was the proverbial kid in a candy shop look. Fun!

God knows I will be there. I will be bringing loads of me crew along with me. I have missed the last few years due to the "Con", but not this year. My Shop is about 15-20 mins from fells point so if anyone needs anything let me know. I am game to make some cool stuff. I also have some guys with some cannons. If anyone wants to shoot them off let me know.

Right!

I don't believe the good chirurgeon will be attending to us poor pirates tomorrow, but if I do see him, I will talk to him about it. He has shown interest in turning out to more events than the Lockhouse, so...

Boy, thats the truth. Usualy, we get to fire an opening and closing round, maybe a noon gun, and thats it. When the Capt said fire as much and as quick as ye can, we applied the spurs with a will !

Blackjohn, you're another one we need to bend elbows with next year.

Crap... I'm about 100% certain this event is going to conflict with Marching Through Time, just like it did last year. If so... aaaghhhh... I'm torn over which to do. And I suspect it will be tough to get Jeff to give up his chance to be a gallowglass or do his Irish 1918 impression (whichever he has plans for).

I'll look further into it. Maybe I can coax some people to do Saturday in Baltimore and Sunday at MtT...

My favorite part is that I can dress like a pirate and enjoy the pubs of Fells Point. I can't think of an exact memory, the whole event is just plain fun.

I wasn't impressed with the Green Turtle last year. They kind of stuck their noses up at my group, and we were well behaved. After waiting for a table and then waiting an addtional 20 minutes for a waiter we left.

You'd have more luck in getting the Pope to convert to Buddhism than you would have to get Jeff to give up an Irish impression oppertunity! This conflict of dates be a sad turn of events.

Agreed, it is. I will poke him though. If I can get him to go, I will definitely be there.

Alice Anna. One of the buildings on Aliceanna Street used to be a pharmacy run by some distant relative. They had a stained glass window made up with our name followed by Pharmacy, so as kids, it was always cool to drive by and check it out. That area has seen a lot of urban renewal, but that building and window are still there. At least they were last time I checked.

Avast ye scallywags.

If'n any of you be wishin to stay the night in Fells Point you may want to be makin yer reservations soon. The fine folks at the Fells point Development Corporation have been working with local hotels and are pleased to offer visitors to Fells Point Privateer Day the following room rates for the Admiral Fell Inn. The WFI has set aside a limited number of rooms at $169 per night, with a two night minimum stay. When booking with either the reservation center or directly through Admiral Fell Inn you should give group reservation #479069 and group name Privateer Day 2009. These rooms will be available until March 1st or until the block of rooms are booked, so I wouldn’t wait until February to book.

The cabins will go fast....

Keep a weather eye out for more details as they come over the horizon.

Crimson.

Quick question, how big of an event would you say it is(so help me if rather go there than piratecon)? Im personally more akin to Blackbeards in Hampton. Is privateers day bigger?smaller?better? in you opinion that is.

I have enjoyed Blackbeard Fest in Hampton Va the past 3 years. Their Encampment area is great. We will have a larger living history Encampment this year as well We have more in the way of a harbor for ship to ship engagements. The size is around the same as Blackbeard. The day time event is made up of vendors and fun family things to do as well as great Shantie bands like The Brigands. Same as you would find at Blackbeard or any other pirate event. This is where the similarities end.

The night time stuff is like nothing else around. After 6:00 pm the Pirates take over the taverns and bars of Fells Point.

The family fun stuff goes the way side and the debauchery begins. Last year there were well over 500 pirates. This year we expect more. some will be reenactors,some will be pirate enthusiasts, to just eye patched plastic hooked pirates.

I hear Pirate con is a little expensive. Ours will set you back $5.00 for the Baltimore Pirate Invasion Button that gives you discounts on beer and food at some of the bars. The fun you will have with your fellow pirates will be priceless.

Just ask anyone how has joined us before.

I wish the hotels wouldn't require a two night minimum.

It would have been nice to have a place to stay that one night so we don't need a designated driver. However, I'm only 45 minutes from Baltimore so it just isn't worth the extra money for me or my friends to do two a two night stay.
