Well, it is eight of our SeaDog Nation Households / Ships who have stepped up to provide entertainment, games, contests and fun for everyone at the event. Each household is sponsoring a candidate for King and Queen of the Pirates, so consider who you want to vote for as you attend each party. Don’t forget to collect your nine pieces of eight and get your SAIL stamped. Voting will take place on Sunday! Be sure to come to opening court for more information on the activities happening in the party houses and come to the crowning / awards ceremony Sunday evening to see which of the candidates wins.

What are the Nine Pieces of Eight?

The nine pieces of eight are tokens that you can collect throughout the event. You receive your first token at gate when you enter the event, this is your site token. Each party house in the Party Compass will have party tokens with a design that represents them or their party. You can collect these tokens starting Saturday night until they run out. Yes, there is a limited quantity. Come to opening court to learn about a competition that the Party Czarina Zarina O’Carle will be announcing for a chance to win prizes.
