Post-Pirate Reflections

Saturday's pirate extravaganza proved to be a rousing success. First there was a special pirate storytime with Cap'n Steve.

Cap'n Steve couldn't find quite enough pirate tales to fill all of storytime, so he padded his repertoire with a selection of stories about, as he put it, "water or anti-social behavior." Kids were treated to pirate snacks such as Silver & Gold Nuggets (Hershey's Kisses), Sea Biscuits (cookies), Fish (goldfish crackers), and Grog (a tasty combination of grape juice, orange juice, and lemonade).

The Pirate Scavenger Hunt was a big hit, too. Thirty teams signed up to participate, and most of them really got into the whole pirate theme.

Everyone was given 2 1/2 hours to find and photograph 32 items. Folks took off on foot, on bicycle, and in car to track everything down, with all but two teams returning to claim the prize. The winning team, pictured above in the center photo, won with 76 out of a possible 78 points! They got pretty creative with their photos: For the picture of a cannonball, they got a shot of a friend doing a cannonball off a diving board; their photo of a boat captured Clearman's Galley Restaurant (better known as The Boat). Each team member won movie passes and a Vroman's gift card.

Congratulations to everyone who participated! We're planning another scavenger hunt for this fall, so stay tuned for details.
