Pirates, Knaves and Idiots

July 10-13, Elk CreekResort and Campground, Piedmont, SD


Come one come all toa weekend of merriment, marauding, idiocy and fighting!

Theredefinitely will not be massive siege engines but there is a high probability ofship building, ship races, and archery with a clout shoot. We hope for somefire dancing but the burning of witches will be strictly prohibited! Thereabsolutely will be Heavy and Rapier tournament gambling and a Last-Man-StandingPirate Dice Tournament, but certainly no tiddly winks, fairy dances, recitingof droll poetry, flying monkeys and/or other such nonsense.  Wenches will be welcomed with open arms andquickly put to work and judged on those qualities that make a wench a wench.Man-wenches (not to be confused with serving manwhiches but absolutely servingAbsolute) will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. We will be encouraging theswindling of coin but strongly discourage the selling of children. There is agood chance of a pirate raid but definitely no threat of mermaids, sea hags,and river goblins as they have been paid in advance to stay well away! Therewill be a contest for the best Pirate ‘AAARRRGGGHHH”. Bring your favoritepoison and our skilled bar-mates will serve it to you in our soon-to-be-infamousSnow Dragon Inn. And finally- we most certainly will not be Feasting upon lambsand sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, andfruit bars and large chu……
