Pirates at Mark Twain Lake!

They're backkkkkk!


Pirates Return to Mark Twain Lake!

Come set sail with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake for a night of
pirate fun on Saturday September 17th, 2011 at the M.W. Boudreaux Memorial
Visitor Center. The Salt River Pirates will return to host a series of high
seas activities. The event will kick off at 6 p.m. with a GPS treasure hunt.
At 7:30 pm you can learn about the lives of Pirates sung to a merry tune
during Pirate Tom's campfire concert. Throughout the night there will be
sailboats for close up viewing in the parking lot, chances to make your own
treasure crafts and there may be even a pirate ship or two sailing in the
lake below the Visitor Center balcony! Inspiring pirates of all ages are
invited and encouraged to attend in their own pirate costumes. Prizes,
decorations and activities will be sponsored by the Mark Twain Lake Sailing
Association, Long John Silver's of Hannibal, MO and the Salt River Navigation
Company of Florida, MO. It's sure to be a "swash buckling" good time! The
M.W. Boudreaux Memorial Visitor Center is located on Rt. J, just south of the
Clarence Cannon Dam. If you need additional information, please contact the
Mark Twain Lake Project Office at 573-735-4097 or email us at
