Marcus Hook Afteraction Report

8 posts in this topic

Great little event which has tons of potential. Marcus Hook is part of the Riverfront Ramble with things going on all along the river, rather like a giant street festival.

The Devilmen and we were part of the new addition to the event, where Blackbeard's Crew and the Vigilant Crew(this being their third year I believe) were about 14 miles down river, we were in the town of Marcus Hook and we were very well received. The town was decked out with pirate banners etc..There was a lot going on from pony rides to tons of vendors, a stage set up with entertainment going on all day, a pirate feast, and more...

More to come as well as more photos...

Hey Cheeky, that is Gentleman Scotty. Unfortunately his beautiful bride Smilin' Kate was unable to attend but at least we got to spend the day with the good gentleman.

This really was a fun event. The Plankhouse Crew did a great job for their first year. I can't wait to see what they do with it for next year.

Thanks to the Plankhouse Crew and the town of Marcus Hook for being such gracious hosts and spoiling us rotten.

pffft- try it on my side. I'm afraid to touch anything wearing that! Kids with cool aid are a bigger threat than staggering drunks- NO SPILLS NO SPILLS!!!!!!! I'm much happier being grungy, boat buildin ole me!

Anyhow that was a grand event and the boys at the plank house know how to throw a todo. The midnight tour of the house was grand. Even though its a lot of speculation, its still awe inspiring to be in a house that was atleast around durring the time of the great one.

The best though was the fish bowl party. Seems there was a private birthday party at the restaurant next to our camp. Nancy thought it polite to wander over and give a heads up of cannon fire. They blew her off, so we blew them off again and again and again and once more, we found another can of powder. Later, thanks to a wall of light from the restaurant, we attended the birthday party about twenty feet away through a wall of glass. we were there havin a good ole time on the lawn for about ten minutes before anyone saw us out there. then they called the cops.........

edit** by the way, notice the 30 dorset buttons on the weskit. there are another 70 already made to put on the vents and flaps.
