We'll be sportin' at least one new swivel as well and two deck cannon. Can't wait ta finally meet you guys. There be alot planned in the way of mock battles, general non-sense, and pyratin'. As far as I know a few of Tales crew will be there as well with another cannon and small arms. Don't forget we're having an auction Saturday to raise money to help with RJ's(from Out of Control) brain operation. If ya have any pirate gear ya wanna donate we'll auction it off. All proceeds go to help a great guy, and sponsored by St Gregs. Be ready to have a great time....

I'm sure a few will turn up. Bit of a commute for me and Chain Shot.

You need to get registered as a member in the Tales web site, or check the FB page. We all keep in touch through those, as well as personal FB pages, so you could ask around.

Kenneth, are you guys coming up to NorCal? Wish you would. The whole gang will be there, and it's a blast—literally. ;)

Lady Jaxx and Weezer will be there unless something changes, but I don't know about any more on the crew.Jaxx usually camps right next to us, we usually raise hell together and with Pylos' Tavern I think a good time should be had by all.

Kenneth there is a gigantic pond that I believe is adjacent to the area we'll be in. Get back in touch with Joyce if ya wanna bring the longboat. She might be able to get approval to float her in the pond. Before she has never had any launchable boats at her faires but I'm sure she'd be interested.

Just home to restock from a Mountain Man & Colonial encampment, so if ya ask me questions I might not get back to you till next week, but....Fresno Pirate Fair is fun. You're not on show or required to perform without pay. It's just a lot of pirates and royals having fun. Lots of cannon fire and battles plus the royal court. Not overlaiden with vendors selling faire crap. Most are trying to keep with the period of Queen Bess. Don't plan on seeing a lot of aluminum chairs and such ou in sight. Most of us are serious re-enactors. I don't recall seeing Hat vendors there yetand they are vendor friendly, fees wise. It's a fairly young Faire, 4 years or so, and yeah the obligatory Jack Sparrows, but the organizers have many years under their belts and know how to put on a faire.

Hey everybody...We will probably have a couple of guitarists and a man that plays squeezebox in our camp and a master scrimshander plus all manner of pirate goods so I'll say right now.......Party's at the Iron Brigade encampment. Dancing gypsies, minstrels and RUM....It don't get no better. If ya play music, have rum, or just wanna party......It's On.......Beware the Iron Brigade......
