    Cheers Jen!

    Not long now... 411 and counting... 1 month to go!

    Rum at the ready!
    Tents that look like ships!
    The infinite field (it's the green sea!)


    When I was a little lad
    And so my mother told me,
    Way, haul away, we'll haul away Joe,
    That if I did not kiss a gal
    My lips would grow all moldy,
    Way, haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

    Chorus
    Way, haul away, we'll haul for better weather,
    Way, haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

    King Louis was the King of France
    Before the Revolution,
    Way, haul away, we'll haul away Joe,
    King Louis got his head cut off
    Which spoiled his constitution.
    Way, haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

    Chorus

    Oh the cook is in the galley
    Making duff so handy
    Way, haul away, we'll haul away Joe,
    And the captain's in his cabin
    Drinkin' wine and brandy
    Way, haul away, we'll haul away Joe.

    Chorus

    We went as day visitors yesterday and I just want to congratulate the committee on not only a well organised, friendly event that is heading quickly and deservedly to Mega status, but also on sorting out the weather as well. Now we are setting off to go and flash!

    I'm making a late new years resolution, I'm making no more promises to attend any events, whether they be caching related or not. I promised to go to so many events this year and how many have I ended up attending so far?

    I had a great time, thank you.

    Well done to everyone involved for organising a fantastic weekend.

    I have posted some of my photos in a Flickr group 'Piratemania IV' PHOTOS.

    Please feel free to add your own to the group. It turns out most of my photos were travel bug codes from flags & cars etc so I only have a few I can show. I must remember next year, more pirate photos lol

    A big thanks to Mark & Liane for all their hard work over the last 4 years in making Piratemania what it is.

    Congratulations on retrospectively obtaining 'Mega status' - you deserve it.





    Looking forward to next year ..... Saturday 21st July 2012

    Congratulations! And thank you, for proving in 2011 that the UK can support two Megas within a few days of each other :socool:
