Title: last two weekends :(
Post by: theChuck on September 10, 2008, 09:42:25 PM
we're coming up on the last two weekends, sniff. i just got an email about this coming weekend - they're doing the first ever pirate weekend (http://www.renfair.com/NY/special/special_events.php). i was thinking of going up next weekend, but now i'm intrigued about this week.

so... anyone going?

Alas, The Brigands were not invited up for the Pirate Weekend, though we are open.
We did Opening Day on the pirate street and did the Pub Sing, as a teaser.
Oh Well, maybe next year.

We will be at Salem Pirate Faire and all 4 weeks of the CT Renn Faire.

i think we will not be going this weekend, although we love pirates! the heat and humidity gets to be a bit much and that is what the forecast is saying.  plus our funds are low.

we love the brigands! boy, do you all get our feet a'stompin'!!!!! LF

Excellent! We should all endevour to meet somewhere if we don't run into one another.

I am always there before opening and I stay until closing so just need a time and place to meet up. There are a few acts I always like to catch in the morning, and I always like to catch Brother Donalds stories during the day but other than that I'm pretty open.

Well if we all go to the pub sing then it shouldn't be that much of an issue. It's a big event at the end of the day and it would be cool to meet up with people there because it's just a fun event.

Yes indeed, the pub sing can be the fail-safe - I always go for the front row, on the cliff and rock side.  I'll look for you!

Woohoo!  Hopefully you stick it out to the end but just in case I will try to keep my eyes peeled for you during the day. Usually people end up spotting me before I spot them though - so if you see me, then stop me and say hi!   I'll do the same!    If not, then lets hope for the pub sing!  I always without fail, catch the 11:30 flirts of fancie show too at the Lakeside so if you remember it , you'll surely find me there.

Oh, I know we're holding out to the end. We're not driving 2.5 hours to leave early! LOL

I'll keep my eyes peeled, though I can't guarantee I'll see you or not. I have a close friend who would usually work at the faire and can't for family reasons this weekend. And she's giving me a list of people and booths I need to find. LOL. But yeah, I'll definately be at the pub sing and I'll check with my friends about the flirts of fancie.
