Should we get together somewhere for a meeting? [Apr. 22nd, 2007|12:46 am]
The Crew of The Snow Queen

Just to make some plans, hash things out.  We were talking about some pretty complicated stuff (cove) and the Confusion Toastmaster has made it known he wants to coordinate opening ceremonies with us.  We've got some stuff to decide so everyone has the time to come us with cash and/or gear.

Time sink idea [Jan. 23rd, 2007|08:14 pm]

I don't know how we might do something like this or what it might entail, but...

We're pirates, right?

How about some form of treasure hunt over the course of the con?

Pick Two! Or, The Nomination Statement [Jan. 23rd, 2007|12:52 pm]
The Crew of The Snow Queen
Just for reference (and in case anyone hasn't seen it), this is what I sent in when Tammy asked for a campaign statement when we were nominated. I had a fever at the time.

Arrr, me hearties!

The Roving Pirate Party is a scurvy crew of long-time area fans who sail the
seas of ConFusion (and Penguicon) dispensing RUM, SODOMY, and THE LASH --
err, I mean RUM, SNACKS, and ARABIC RAP MUSIC (What? We're BARBARY
Pirates...) And THE LASH. And, er, RUM. And -- oh, BUGGER. Where was I?

In any event, if you select us as Fan Guests of Honor, we pledge to be as
disruptive (we've emptied dances at three cons now) and entertaining (see
above) as possible. We've already got some great panel ideas planned --
"How to Throw a Roving Party (While Staying Out Of Bankruptcy Court, Jail,
and the Royal Navy)", "Rum Tastings" (ever had Stroh 80? evidence suggests
we have but none of us can remember anything about Conclave), and other
pirate topics such as "Piracy in SF", "Downloading Hard-to-Find TV Shows",
and "Cutlass Selection" (the swords or the cars, your call).

Look at it this way -- since we have our own transportation (Ahoy!), you get
a bunch of Fan GOHs for less than the price of flying one in with their
guest. Which means you could have one of us on EVERY PANEL. (We can also be
bribed NOT to do that, by the way.)

Or look at it this way -- if you don't select us, you'll still get RUM,
SODOMY, and THE LASH. But if you do select us, WE'LL LET YOU PICK TWO.
How's that for a deal?

Pirate-Related Panels [Jan. 23rd, 2007|11:39 am]

I'm starting this entry to collect panel ideas. I'm copying Lisa's forward into the comments.

It's silly, I know but... [Jan. 22nd, 2007|10:16 pm]
The Crew of The Snow Queen

Is there anyway to turn off the "plus" ads on this community?

I'll repost my thoughts and ideas here...

I suggest we do a face-to-face planning party. At least two.

EFF was going to be my suggestion as a charity. The charity can also be announced as part of the GoH speech. (Does ConFusion still do GoH speeches?) And hallway flyers, because most people won't hear the speech or attend the panel.

I'm a bit tired of the ship as roaming party. I do think the ship does need to roam, and even as a roaming party, but it's getting a bit same-old-same-old. So, since we're stars for a weekend, I think we should also include a cove party. (Do we cove Friday and sail Saturday, or sail Friday and cove Saturday. Or sail early night Saturday and land at the cove at say 10pm for the rest of the night?)

Re: pirate history... I'm sure one or more of the group would be willing to read up on pirates over the next year. I sorta favor doing a historical female pirates panel.

And a panel or two on a pirate literature. There's lot of mainstream fiction, adult fantasy, and YA fantasy featuring pirates. Oh, and let's not forget space pirates!

Cove Thread - Planning, Logistics, Design, etc [Jan. 22nd, 2007|08:36 pm]
The Crew of The Snow Queen

We're going to talk about the cove in this thread.

Until someone tells me otherwise, I'm planning for a normal sized room.

Ar, Captain, we have boarded an LJ [Jan. 22nd, 2007|06:36 pm]
The Crew of The Snow Queen


She be a bit clunky, but her cargo be full of riches.

Crew - an easier discussion and tracking forum than the mailing list.  I've got it moderated, so join if you're gold-skull crew, and I'll approve.

Sorry the rest of ye crew, this is for the officers.  Feel free to watch.

Gold-skulls, check out icons I made for ye under User Info.
