HEAR YE! HEAR YE! BRAND NEW PIRATE CONVENTION!

48 posts in this topic

Below is the latest schedule of events for Pyrate Daze. And more is bound to be added. I know I'm doing a presentation on the True Look of a Pirate and it's not listed here, and I know of a few other things that haven't been added to the website yet.

Also - notice our NO QUARTER GIVEN Kick-off party on Friday night, with our special guests "THERE BE PYRATES". They'll be celebrating the release of their new CD.

More and more pirates are planning to come - some from across the nation. There are fewer competing pirate events in the area. The Pirates Cove for Oceanside Harbor Days was canceled earlier. And now, we hear Lobster Festival in San Pedro, will not be having it's full Pirate Camp as in years past, but will just have 6 pirates hired for the day.

For those of you who are parents (or have nieces, nephews, or other young people in your life), this is a family friend event - at least during the day. You'll find on the discount page of the website that children 10 and under are FREE (does not include Masquerade Dinner Ball).

Hope to see lots of you at the Queen Mary, Sept. 18-20.

Be sure to listen for the radio commercial spot mornings starting Aug. 30 on K-Earth 101 FM radio.

The most AWESOME weekend ever!!!!!

I've been to a lot of conventions and I'll put this one on the list of the top three I've enjoyed the most!

It was extremely well run, everything on time, no major hitches, great people and some pretty outrageous outfits.

The party in the Observation Bar on Friday night was fantastic and the dinner on Saturday night was absolutely delicious and that chocolate mousse whatever it was kind of cake was just to die for....I got two pieces because Boats can't have chocolate.

Do I plan to do it again, YOU BET!!!!!!

I can't say enough thank you's to Mitch Toles for putting on the best pirate convention one could ever go to! Pictures coming soon!!!

HUZZAH!!!!!

OOOOOOOOOOOh I want to see the video! Never got to see the show.

Well-

here's a video!

I haven't edited together all my PyrateDaze video yet..but this is more of a spoofy vacationy music video.

With elements of a piratical bent, and locations including Disneyland, the American Pride, and the Queen Mary.

With some pirates ya might know...

And me...rappin'. Kind of...

But then...this ain't your mother's vacation video!

If you have seen the Lonely island's I'm on a Boat- you'll understand.

EXPLICIT lyrics, but if that don't put ya off:

Amusing video. :huh:

An' wouldn't that be amazin' if we could get close enough to board her!

As it was we were told at the beginning of our sail that a lot o' silt had built up around the berm, and so it was possible, though unlikely, that we'd run aground.

Now that would've been special!

We had quite the time aboard the American Pride, with Capn' Mac and his scurvy crew including Crazyboots. I got some great footage too.

I'd love to do it again. Any word on if there will be another one?

But seriously- if anyone has any video footage from the opposite side, on board the Queen Mary, let me know! I'll be cutting together a little more serious PyrateDaze video, I'll post a link here as well.

I talked to Mitch about changing the month and I think (don't hold me to this) that he's thinking of August after Comic Con.

Though I did suggest the end of June before it gets too hot.

He does say he will do it again as the response was great, but the month is up in the air. I do know he won't do it again in Sept. when it's up against other activities.
