From the event’s Facebook page:
- “Friday 19th September is International Speak Like a Pirate Day. For all those budding pirates out there, this event is for you.
A treasure hunt to end all treasure hunts! On this greatest of days a collection of pirates will be competing for the treasure.
At 6pm all pirates will meet to collect their treasure maps and treasure hunting gear. Then it will be all on as they compete to be the first one to the treasure chest full of booty (i mean that in the pirate sense of the word – you know, prizes and stuff) Pirates will have to overcome challenges, work out clues, follow the map and use your pirate skills to find the treasure.
Registration for this event costs $15. We encourage you to dress like a pirate. And of course you MUST speak like a pirate. You can work as a team or as a pair, but there will be only one winner in the end!
To attend the Hunt you will need to register and pay – we need definite numbers before the day because certain purchases need to be made, and I need to know how many treasure maps to provide!
So. There are three ways of doing this. To register I actually just need your name, mobile number.
To pay you can either:
1. Direct deposit into my bank account. Ask me for my bank details.
2. Post a cheque to PO Box 1049 Dickson ACT 2602 with your name and details
3. Buy a ticket at either the Hive or Circus Space Showcase (Friday 12th and Sunday 14th Sep, Embroiderers Guild, Gorman House Arts Centre, tix available from 6.00-7.30pm – you don’t have to stay for the shows, but you should!)
See you there on the day! Yar.
