One couldn’t ask for a better event. Great people, great weather and great times all the way around! I was pleased to see so many of our crewe turn out for this event and boy did we have a ‘ton ‘o fun’!

Pictures will be posted shortly…as soon as I can get them down loaded and up for posting.

Special thanks for all of you who drove/flew out all this way and slept very little just to be with their friends.

Very good images, Cheeky me dear. I think one was miss captioned. It is of 'Dogge, Matty Bottles and Lily. It was captioned 'Dogge, Nick and a cleaned shaven Matty Bottles. FYI, if I'm wrong, feel free to slap me. ;)

The Crew of the Archangel was in great form this weekend and had some great battles. Sadly, I missed the battles, as I had to fight onstage eslewhere as Sir Francis Drake, still pirating, but missing my friends on the beach. THere is a great video on youtube showing the Crew doing a great battle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iy1JAaT-yjw

Don't forget the slide show includes *your* own group, the Great Lakes River Pirates, as well William. You wouldn't want to suffer similar loss of rank as our once Lt, come midshipman Lith, now would we ;) Special thanks to Bruce Langseth for his hard work putting together the montage, wonderful work sir!

The 5 of our boats present very much enjoyed the splendid weather along the big lakes this past weekend, coffee and cards at Black's Coffeehouse, music with Brigands Folie & of course the thrill of ship to shore battle! All in all another successful raid and not one to be missed!

Ah...yes, Nicholas! Such a formal name for the boy. And the red hair suits his temper I hear. ....As rumor has it...he retired early Saturday night...perhaps he may have been hung over from the glorious battles that day.

hmmm, Nick told me he retired early because he was waiting for Bess. :blink:

What a great time I had this weekend. There is so much to say I don't know where to begin. The battles, scenarios, wedding, finally being on a cannon crew, were all wonderful. But the best part was spending time with all of you. Thanks for a great weekend.
