Yes, we plan on having all the lads there.

You are very welcome to visit with us at the sea end of the concrete pier. While we will be there both days, as a group we are not camping at this event and nobody can remain overnight on the pier itself.

I know you have a long drive. Camping on the beach is being run by the Port Royal Privateers and their POC is Craig McNeil. They are putting a lot of effort into this event and it looks like they will have a mighty fine site. I can put you in contact with him if you'd like to see if its possible to camp on the beach?

Michael and I missed out on last year's Pier Daze (we were voyaging up in the Pacific NW at the time, visiting the Rusty Scupper's Festival instead). But we will be in attendance this year, with our No Quarter Given booth. We look forward to making up for missing out last year, and enjoying lots of music, and piratey entertainment. After hours, we'll be camping on the beach with our mates the Port Royal Privateers. Hope to see lots of you there. The PyRats, Bart and Hank, will be with us too.

Alas I wish I could attend, but I will be channeling my alter-ego "Black Hearted Pearl of 1874" at a SASS event. Iron Bess & Jamaica Rose, please say "Ahoy" to everyone for me and I'll see you at OFMD.

It was great to meet you there. Glad you had good fun. Isn't that a great location for a pirate event, on the beach and on a pier. I love it.
