When? May 18. (first Saturday after Mothers day) Arriving anytime after 6:00pm, heck, arrive earlier for a meal too! Trolleys leave 7:15 pm sharp. Captains toast at 7:00pm!
Where? World of Beer Naperville. We leave and return to the World of Beer. Our new place is having an all day “Pirate” celebration just for us, they have tons of beer to choose from, and have a Scottish band waiting for us on our return! They DO NOT serve food, BUT, you can bring in food, and order in all you want (there are a bunch of local options you can walk to from the place, get some grub to go, and bring it into the bar and eat it, yar!). Some bad news, Parking at this place is a pain in the arse, so ARRIVE EARLY!
I repeat. PARKING HERE IS A PAIN IN THE ARSE! Trust me on this one.
How? Pay firstname.lastname@example.org, or any certified staff, $40 cash/check. (checks to Arthur Zards) Paypal preferred. Make sure you list who you are paying for! (yes, put the names down ya knucklheads!So me crew can properly notate yer persons!)
Why? Why not! Its year VIII, no need to explain any more you chumbuckets!
Notes: Alcohol IS permitted (no glass) on the trolley, so BYOB.There will also be a Captains toast before we board, some gifts to be handed out, noise makers, beads to throw and other surprises.
I expect to be full, and earlier then usual, so its first pay, first in! It IS a pirate raid, so full pirate garb is HIGHLY recommended, less you walk the plank!
This year we are using Facebook to get people in Pirate mode, so go to the group “Pirate Raid ” Use Facebook for any/all questions!
Please note that there is no Eventbrite or Socializer this year, payment is what confirms you as in. If you send in payment for more then one person list there name please!
Oh, SHIRTS! Pirate Raid Shirts WILL be available for advanced purchase! Only $12!!! If you want one, state the size, add the additional funds and it will be waiting for you on the day of the Raid. It is NOT likely that shirts will be available for purchse on May 18. Last time the Captain tried that he went home with a whole bunch of XXL and XS Pirate Raid shirts, that nobody purchased. WTYARR! Final date to order a shirt is April 30!
Hotel Info: For all yes trevelin crew, the good news is that there are a bunch of hotels stumbling distance from the World of Beer. The closest being the Courtyard Marriott.
You can go ahead and ask for the Captain Arrrt Pirate rate at any of these hotels. But you won’t get squat, and the reservations person will look at ya funny.
Thats all! Yar!
Please note that due to the reputation of previous raids, this one is expected to be full pretty early, there will only two ships, since the bars we hit won’t be able to handle a third. So this WILL sell out. So please send in payment early.
Please check www.pirateraid.com for updates often! Seems that some “concerned” citizens have already been talking about the Raid on YouTube. Odd stuff going on!
