Low Country Boil

Last Saturday, the Bosun had a Low Country Boil. It was good drink, great food and exceptional company. There was enough food to feed an entire pirate crew (except for the yummy hashbrown casserole) and we went through the first Tybee Tea recreation experiments.

Darlin' was the chief mixologist while my dear, sweet Powder Money took notes. I personally thought it was pretty good but Darlin' and Captain Madog decided it needed a little less Meyers rum. I guess that is OK considering we have four other rums in the mix.

Update: D*C 2009 & Tybee Island Pirate Fest

I have been horribly neglectful of the Bunny Blog lately. It's not that I am behind on posts but there are just not as many 'Bunny Blog' entries at the moment. The holidays are upon us and while I am busy, there just isn't a significant amount of content at the moment. Now, don't read that as "I'm not going to post anything new until January". That is not what I mean. It just won't be as much and the posts will be more holiday related - not the usual fare.

Now on with the updates....

Dragon Con 2009
The deadline for memberships (at the cheap price) is this Thursday, September 13th. I have been emailing everyone updates about this since the week after Dragon Con. So far, we have a lucky 13 memberships ready to go and I'm expecting 11 more to arrive today or tomorrow. I will send out an email and post to the blog (using badge names) everyone that purchased a membership.

Speaking of Dragon-Con, I was thinking of the 'Schedule of Activities' for the 2009 D*C and here are some (some we are definitely doing, some are ideas, some are suggestions from other people)

(1) Parade - This is non-negotiable for me and my crew.
(2) Star Wars Costuming (another definite)
(3) The Mansion Ghosts (I think it would go over great at D*C)
(4) Photo Shoots: My Crew and Darlin' on one of the Bars. Any others?
(5) Pirate Tea or Poor Man's Pub Crawl? Depends the schedule. Thoughts?
(6) I don't know if there is going to be another 501st Mixer??
(7) Pirate Party - But it has been disappointing for the last 2 years...
(8) I would like to do another Thursday night dinner. Location ideas??
(9) And there are always all those actual D*C scheduled events :)

Tybee Island 2008 & 2009
As you know from previous posts, The Tybee Island Pirate Fest was GREAT! In the past week, the website has posted the dates for next year - October 8-10, 2009. We have put in a request to rent the same house as this year but we will not know until the dates are closer. I'll keep you all posted. Also, the Crew is mentioned on the Tybee Island Pirate Fest website. Look under 'Comments from 2008 Attendees'.

I believe that's all for now.
