Introducing 2006 PiratePalooza Website

Zowie, I’ve had a busy weekend of posting to this blog!!

If you still haven’t seen the short “web-commercials” we shot for last year’s PiratePalooza pubcrawl then stop what you’re doing now and click here to see the darned videos!!!.

If anyone has an extra 3-chipper laying around gathering dust you know how to get in touch with me~
