My fellow Pastafarians, it is with great pleasure that I discovered the 2006 Port Washington Pirate Festival.
Although the event is not sponsored by our church, I believe it is most worthy. I suggest that we use this oppurtunity to do a FSM meetup. We may be sort of "crashing" the festival but I don't think they will mind.
If you can make the festival, reply to this post and lets try to schedule a gathering. And remember that by attending this event, and restoring the awareness of pirates, you will be helping to reduce global warming and other good things. This is a real chance to make a difference!
