Hey Pirate Max,
I live in the Essex area, and I am in my final semester at Towson University. I don't know if you are aware, but Pirate Weekend is coming up at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. It is September 27-28. It is called Adventure Weekend on the site. I went last year and was happy to see so many pirates, I just don't think they are aware of the FSM. But I am going on the 28th and am thinking about passing out flyers.
