October 31, 2012, Halloween Sail to SNAKE ISLAND
(click on photo for larger image and back button to return)

    We rigged the Pirate ships for a sail to Snake Island @ 8:30 AM.  Everyone looked great in their Pirate finery and Halloween costumes.  The costume contest judges picked Nancy Marik for 1st place for her black cat costume and realistic "meow".  Gloria Casey took 2nd place for her "sunken chest" interpretive costume and Carol Crane won 3rd place for her Pirate costume and bad dental work.  There were some other wonderful costumes....see website for the pictures and pictures of the capture of Snake Island when Nancy Marik gets them up.
     We held a brief meeting before the capture of Snake Island.  First topic was a discussion of tactics to sail to and capture the Island.  Beth Anderson planned a really fun time for everyone. Thanks so much Beth!  Also Bob, her husband was integral to the success of the mission....he brought us treats and Barbara Murphy helped too.  Also, thanks to Peter Eduardo for running the  other boat and making sure we didn't get too dastardly.  He also helped us old pirates get back in the water after a fun picnic lunch.

    After a successful capture of Snake Island (Oh what fun it was!  Beautiful weather and just enough wind) we returned to port to clean the boats and then we attended  a desert party/meeting.  Thank you Good Witch, Helen Gokbudak, for bringing tasty apple cider and sinful cupcakes for this meeting.
