Outlook Portland

“Some thirteen years ago when convincing my wife to move to Portland, Oregon, instead of extolling the cities glorious nature, or the compelling mix of political views, I should have just sold Portland to her by saying, ‘It’s got pirates.'”

Rick Emerson

Earlier this month, PDXYAR’s Captain Redgoat and Sailing Master Dingo appeared on the TV32’s Outlook Portland with Rick Emerson to discuss all things pirate and to delve deeply into particularities of being a swashbuckler in Stumptown. If you missed the show (and let’s face it, the show airs a little earlier than most scallywags can shake themselves loose from the rack) here is your chance. The episode, in all it’s glory, has been uploaded to the show’s YouTube channel.

Enjoy the show, broken into 4 segments, below and don’t forget to check out Outlook Portland as well as Rick Emerson’s “Emerson News Network.”

Ice Pirates! Really, We’re Not Kidding.

If you live in the Portland metro area, pirates are coming to an ice rink near you. Yes, you read that right. While pirates generally prefer warmer climes and water of a less solid variety, this Friday the Swashbucklers of Stumptown will make and exception.

PDXYAR will be joining other crews in support of the Portland Pirate Festival as we come ashore at the Rose Garden while the Winterhawks take on Seattle. Not only will there be pirates wondering the area, posing for photos and perhaps even singing a shanty or two, but the evening will also feature “Pirates on Ice.”

If you are unable to make the game in person, make sure to watch the game on the Fox Sports Network (FSN) to see if your favorite pirate makes it on camera!

What: Portland Winterhawks vs the Seattle Thunderbirds
When: Friday, March 4th at 7pm
Why: Why? Um, Pirates!
Where: The Rose Garden

The Guinness World Record™ attempt for “The Largest Gathering of Pirates”

Just last year, the Portland Pirate Fest brought the world record for “The Largest Gathering of Pirates” to Portland by gathering 1,670 pirates together.  Alas, for the record has been taken from us.  But all is not lost!  This year PDXYAR will once again be a part of the attempt to retake the record.  We need to gather 7,000 pirates together .  Come out on Sunday and be counted with us!  For more information about how you can help reclaim the record, visit the pre-registration webpage.

Meet the Crew!

Throughout both days keep a weather eye for PDXYAR crew strolling the festival, most likely with tankard in hand.  Whether you come across them at the PDXYAR Camp or in line for grog, say hello, perhaps give them a hug and ask them about how it feels to be a pirate!  There could be a shiny bit of swag in it for you (note: swag presentation not necessarily dependent on the duration, nor tightness, of the aforementioned hug).
