Excellent! I'll get on yer list at once.

I enjoy Mt. Gay's Extra Old, picked some up in Barbados in April. Ever try Calico Jack rum? It might just be local brand. Not very good, but worth it for the killer label!

The group has some great guys in the Hampton area. Bloody Davey hails from those waters and lives maybe a mile from the Mariners Museum.

No, it doesn't take long to be accepted onto the mail list. Turn around time is usually less than a day. But be forwarned, things can get dicey in there at times... :)

Blackjohn -

Signing the articles - the first step??

Currently I am but a landlubber, standing on the shore waiting for a chance to join a crew. All I ask is a fair portion of rum and plunder. I offer some skill with arms and can pick up the finer points of seaman ship with a bit of practice. I believe myself to be a quick study of whatever is needed as part of the crew. A bit of skill in carpentry may help with careening the company's vessel as needed.

I look forward to :rolleyes: lift'n a tall rum with you. Scotch if you like.

If there are any of the crew near Richmond I would like to hear from them as well.

:rolleyes:

I saw that, but I was looking for the dates (found them on the Pirate Brethren Forum) but I thought for sure I saw SOME discussion here on the pub. Oh well. This hasn't been the first time and will likely not be the last that I have read something that isn't there. lol

I know I have talked about it briefly in various threads (like one on PC DYI tents), but don't know of any particular main thread.

I've pointed everyone who posted there to the thread on the Pirate Brethren's forum, with a note asking that, in order to preserve my sanity, they do me the courtesy of letting me know their intentions to attend, etc.

The more the merrier, but I'm not a fan of surprises and walk-on reenactors. With walk-ons, you never know what you might be getting, from both a historical accuracy perspective, and more importantly, from a safety perspective.
