Posted by: Editor in Twizted Sails Comments Off on Twizted Sails: Thanksgiving Treats!

When we go on shore-leave for holidays, us Pirates always have tons to be thankful for- rum, booty, good pals (we like to call them “hearties”), family, a good ship and great food.

Lady Tempest has collected a number of favorite treats from our ranks and included them over at her blog, Twizted Sails.

They sound delicious! Thanks Tempest!

2011 Rogue Picnic & Games and Chili Cook-off

While we’re not pillaging at the Renaissance Festival, we love attending various events throughout the year. In addition to several annual charity events, we also host a number of parties just for fun. This year the Captains of the Colorado Rogues agreed that we should combine two of our larger events into one even larger event, and thus this years annual Chili Cook-off will be hosted along side the 2011 Picnic and Games.

The Picnic

This portion is pretty self explanatory: we all bring yummy picnic dishes to eat and to share. We hang out and chat and generally have a great time as we wait for the festivities to begin.

The Games

By winning the Rogues Cup last year, the Sun God has been awarded the honor of coordinating the Games portion of the festivities. Yarr! Read on… »

The Changing of the Guard

Posted by: Merlot in News Comments Off on The Changing of the Guard

Colorado Rogues Have New Commodore

In 2009, Commodore Amon announced that, after 8 years of service as the Colorado Rogues’ fearless leader, he wished to step down from his postion to focus on the Captaincy of his ship, The Sun God. 

Several brave and mighty Captains in the Fleet stepped up to run for the newly-available Commodore position, and an election was held on New Year’s Eve, 2009, with the results being announced at midnight.

We extend our gratitude and respect to Captain Amon for his years of service and his deeply valued leadership, as he pursues new mayem with the crew of The Sun God.

Congratulations and a most hearty welcome to Commodore Traveler Hawk.  As she takes the helm, we look forward to following her on new journies across these adventurous seas!
