    This crew does not let a little rain get in the way of a great time! Who knew by the end of the day I'd be dancing with a pirate? MBD folks, GREAT to meet you and AMAZING costumes. Thank you Scott for organizing and Scott, Jan, Gil and Robb for bringing boats. And speaking of boats...don't forget to be thoughtful to our captains. It's not only boat gas, but hauling the boats (often long distances) and the never-ending maintenance that boats require...

      I totally agree! If you have never owned a boat, you have no idea what it takes to trailer it, and get it in and out of the water. I thank the people who so graciously allow us the opportunity to enjoy the open waters with them on their boat.

    I had such a great time! Thank you everyone for coming out and all the boat owners for being there for us! OH... I have been moved to "1st Mate" ....how did that happen?

    Now this was PERFECT boating weather for 3 reasons: 1. No sunburn to ride home with. 2. No sunburn to take a shower with so you got to enjoy the warm water massaging your skin. 3. No sunburn to go outside the next day. What a G R E A T time ScottP. Ya done good!!!

    3 · November 3, 2013

    • ScottP

      Given the choice I'd take warmer and dryer. But despite the less than ideal weather it was a great day due to the great turnout of hard core boaters and a fun group of people.

    Got a friend to come along; so we will drive; meeting you at the first stop AFTER the Ren Faire...need to confirm that it's JB Boondocks please.

    November 1, 2013

    • Patty

      Scott: anywhere in particular that we're meeting at Wooton Park - have been there in a while but think it's by Ruby's grille right? or across the street? I'm coming from Clermont.

      November 1, 2013

    • ScottP

      Yes, across the street from Ruby's. We'll be on the docks near the boat ramp.

  • Bruce

    What is the first stop for the boats? I'd like to drive from place to place if not picked off the wait list.

    October 31, 2013

    • ScottP

      1st stop will be the Renaissance Faire at Hickory Pointe, or for anyone that prefers a restaurant/bar we will go to JB Boondocks in Howie in the Hills.

      October 31, 2013

  • Robb E.

    FYI...a few of us are sticking around Mt. Dora in the evening to see Swerve play at McGregor's...come on out and twerk with the MBD Pirates.

    October 31, 2013

  • ScottP

    Reminder to anyone on the RSVP list.....if your plans have changed and you can't make it, make sure to change your RSVP to "NO" so it will open up a spot for people on the wait list.

    October 31, 2013

    • Robb E.

      This is such a fun group, even those who don't make the cut by boat can certainly follow the crawl by car. Unique cities and stops, each with their own quaint appeal.

      October 31, 2013

  • Gilbert

    Ok mates my boat & I will attend, but I would have to be back home my eight to attend a 10 pm event. You know me Jan if you need the boat longer you are welcome to do so. I can bring a second car to get home and pick up the boat on Sunday. It will be 3 + me so I can take 6 mates with me.

    October 13, 2013

    • ScottP

      Thanks Gilbert. The last stop will probly be Pisces rising on lake Dora, as is the boat ramp. So if you need to go before everyone is ready to leave, we can make multiple trips from there back to the ramp to get everyone back.

      October 30, 2013

  • Jane

    so we are stopping where the Ren Faire event? How much to get in? $20? If we do not purchase in advance?

    October 28, 2013

    • Robb E.

      The gate price is $15/adults $10/kids, or $13/adults if You purchase online...I have ~6 six tickets @ $10 price... http://www.medievalfe...­

      Sounds great to me!

      October 17, 2013

  • Bev D

    Is everyone wearing pirate clothes? I see you posted something Robb on MBD as an event. Like our own Gasparilla?

    October 15, 2013

    • Robb E.

      I posted the Pirate Invasion portion on MBD to help us organize ticket purchases. We have some MBD'ers who are only meeting up for the Ren Faire, but the pub crawlers ( hopefully ) will also register for this event. Many of us are dressing as pirates, with the exception of one Princess who wants to go as our prisoner. I will be ditching the pirate garb for the crawl.

      October 15, 2013

    • ScottP

      yes....we have basically the same event mirrored on Gulf to Coast and MBD. Most all will participate in the Pub Crawl. Robb is organizing the pirating of the Ren Faire and advanced ticket ordering (as advance tickets are a significantly reduced rate.) Gulf to Coast members will have the option to join the pirate invasion, and check out the Ren Faire. Or, if there are some that would prefer another Bar/Restaurant instead of the Ren Faire, we can take a group to JB Boondocks, then rejoin the Faire goers and continue the Pub Crawl as one group.
