Can I get some information about the planning of this event. I really wanted to get involved this past summer but somehow I completely forgot about the event and didn't realize until a few weeks ago.

Ahoy El Pirata!!

Ye most certainly may receive additional information. The Hampton Blackbeard Festival takes place the first weekend of June every year in Hampton Virginia The Radisson hotel is located right next to the encampment. You have to register early becaus the rooms go fast. There is a pirate encampment set up with several crews from the east coast.. Merrick's Privateers, Pirate Bretheren, Tortuga Mutineers.

Ye can find more information here :atHampton Blacbeard Festval

It is a great event and growing every year. We normally have a period ship at the water front with the pirate encampment close by. Sea shantiy's are sung until the wee hours o' the mornin around the campfire. A sea battle ensues which results in Blackbeards demise.

If ye have a vessel o' yer own there is docking available right next to the encampment. I bring da "Freedom Row" every year.

WE 'ope ta see ya next year!

I imagine the hotel info is for the non-locals. The date is the thing I really needed which I now have. Hopefully I will be able to attend this year.

If memory serves, this is right next to the Air and Space Museum, correct?

Normally we meet on the second Thursday of the month. You are correct about the location of the Public Piers office. This weeks meeting will be at a members house for a christmas dinner.

We are in search of a new permanent location for out meetings.

4 Bells is like 2 in the afternoon? Sorry my squid terminology is a little rusty. If memory serves up to 8 bells broken down into 30 minutes intervals. The dog watch is probablyt a baseline of which sets of hours we are talking about.

The afternoon four to eight watch is broken down into two dog watches. The first, 4:00 pm-6:00 pm and the second 6:00 pm -8:00 pm. The first bell is struck on the half hour after the beginning of the watch and an additional bell each half hour till the end of the watch. Eight bells is the end of watch.

Therefore 6:00 pm would be the right time to arrive at the meeting.
