2015 Beaufort Pirate Invasion
Hosted by Clan O'Conaill
Friday, August 7th and Saturday, August 8th, 2015 in Beaufort, NC.
My Penny name is Dread'n and it comes from being a former Dread Pirate King who sailed the Sword Coast to the Shattered Isles aboard the Wicked Wench. Now I content myself with being one of a few older pirate Captains. I invite you to join me this August in Beaufort, North Carolina; which is a historic seaport and a fine little community of scallywags, seadogs, and swashbucklers. The food is good, the beer is crafty, and the venue is filled with nautical salts.
I am introducing "healthy" into the group by having my four-man team swagger in the 5K Yo!Ho!Ho! and a bottle of run. I hope you'll join me in making this a successful venture by joining either the 1K Grog or the 5K YHH! run hosted by "Run the East." Did I mention Pennies are running while we are wearing kilts?
Meet & Greet - Friday, Aug. 7
Food @5:30 p.m.
Revue @ 7:00 p.m.
Main Stage Tent at Craven and Front Street - The Main Stage located at Craven and Front Street Beaufort, NC 28516
At $20 a head this may seem a touch expensive, but it will be the easiest way to feed everyone and to enjoy the piratical festivities. More importantly it serves as a fund raiser to keep this North Carolina Pirate event going. Sweet Tea comes with the Clawson's BBQ dinner, but there's also regular bar.
