Pirate Family Part 2

Parlay 8's No So Secret Diary

What’s the Webster definition of Family? Among the many different definitions is a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation. That’s exactly what the crew is, family. In November we posted this picture and shared what an amazing group our crew is. We may be Parlay 8 all the time but when we are with them, we are also The Loose Cannon Company, a group of people united in their love of pirating and teaching. We are teaching you about what it was like to be a pirate in those years of the Golden Age of Piracy. We know this because we got to see it firsthand last year. A different perspective from being a festival patron is working with these amazing people side by side.

Why are we repeating this? Because through all of this, they still look out for you. They call and check on you. They miss you, and we miss them. It was supposed to be season kick off for us this past weekend, the reunion of Loose Cannon Company after being apart for 6 months. Yes apart for that long, pre-covid. Since the crew is all over the eastern part of the United States, and we all work full time jobs, it’s not easy to pick up and get together for a pint at our favorite pub.

We are all still planning our next outing. Looking for ways to stay connected, among other things how to keep Parlay 8 moving as everything is still moving at a snail’s pace to back to normal.

So that’s what we will do. Continue being there for our crew mates, who we love so much. Also for you, our loyal followers drop us an email. Let us know how you’re doing. We’d love to hear from you.

And on we sail…I’m reminded of the great speech Elizabeth Swan gave right before the battle….

“You will listen to me! LISTEN! The other ships will still be looking to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead, and what will they see? Frightened bilgerats aboard a derelict ship? No, they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see, they will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our back and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, Hoist the colors!”

Hoist the colors indeed!
