BrethrenCon II has everything that pirates, or non-pirates, could want for a weekend of land-based fun: pirate panels, a talk-like-a-pirate contest, a treasure hunt, a pirates plunder, a voodoo workshop and a kilt-blowing contest, where guys can be hunks without showing their junk, says convention spokeswoman Linda Hougham, whose pirate name is Copper Penny. Its like ComicCon, only for pirates, she adds. We highly encourage dressing like a pirate.
Lady pirates will be able to purchase seventeenth-century clothing, too just in case theyve lost some of their garments on the high seas. Needless to say, there will be treasure for all kinds of pirates and even something for non-pirates.
BrethrenCon II begins at 10 a.m. today at the Denver Airport Marriott at Gateway Park, 16455 East 40th Circle in Aurora. Tomorrows lineup begins at 10 a.m. with a captains breakfast, then continues with a poetry reading by Blackbeard at 2 p.m. Any booty collected from ticket sales and a silent auction, which begins today at 11 a.m., will benefit the Gabriel Foundation, a non-profit organization promoting parrot welfare.
