Centennial Memory #61: Pirates Takeover Erie at Convention 2004

To celebrate the DeMolay Centennial, PA DeMolay will be counting down 100 memories worth celebrating that took place within the DeMolay Chapters and Jurisdiction of Pennsylvania.

Ahoy Matee!

During the 2003-2004 term, pirates had taken over Pennsylvania DeMolay. They interrupted installations, meetings, state weekends, and various other activities that took place throughout the Commonwealth. The pirates took over a weekend at Patton Campus in May and made several people walk the plank, calling the weekend "Pirates Revenge Weekend." The pirates then took it a step further by taking over the PA DeMolay Convention, which was located at the Avalon Hotel in Erie, PA.

A day at the beach turned into a pirate takeover in search for their buried treasure. The takeover was not complete until the pirates took over the boat of a civilian at shore (honestly, we didn't know the guy, but he was really great with playing along and allowing the guys on his boat.) Although a rowdy bunch of characters, they sure did know how to have a good time.

Until next time - "Dad" Joe Pullin
