Brac pirates week splash a success

If a Pirates Week celebration can be judged by its kickoff, one can plan on another successful, fun-filled time in the Brac for the Pirates Week Finale during the last weekend of November.

The combined efforts of Captain’s Table, Moses Kirkconnell and the Brac Pirates Week Committee team have yielded a successful fundraiser and an evening of music, dance and merriment.

C-Level Band played through to the wee hours of the morning with dancers crowding every inch of the poolside deck. The weather fully cooperated during the entire event.  Though the music and crowd were typically loud, no unruly behavior marred the festivities.

In fact, the winner of the Grand Prize Raffle for $500 generously donated his winnings back to the committee as a contribution to Cayman Brac’s Pirate Week Fund. And the benevolence of Mr. Jay Ebanks’ was applauded by the crowd.

Mr. Ebanks was visiting Cayman Brac from Northside in Grand Cayman. The $250 winner Robert Tatum and the $100 winner Richard Moss are both from Cayman Brac.

The Brac committee is in full swing organising and planning more fundraisers and the actual festival events. This year, the group is hopeful to have a well-rounded representation from the entire Cayman Brac community.

All Brac businesses, schools and local service club chapters are asked to participate in this year’s parade.

Letters to these parties are currently in circulation and the deadline to submit the registration form is 4 October. Should you be interested in participating in the parade as a group or business, please contact Mel Scott at 916-2380.

The elderly will not be overlooked for the Saturday Parade and Grand Finale. The local Family Services Department has agreed to transport a group of elderly who would normally be unable to attend. A special tent will be provided at the terminal of the parade where food, drinks and facilities can be located and fireworks may be enjoyed for the close of the festival.
