Our 8th Day Tribal Crew Pack Contest Winners Are…..

Thanks to One-Eyed Jack we get to close our last single pack contest with 2 (TWO) Winners!!

Answer Me This:
Bonnie Anne is based on a real life pirate named Anne Bonny.
Who was the 1st Pirate Captain that the real Anne Bonny served under?

Anne Bonny was born in Ireland and became one of the most famous female pirates in history. Little is known about her early life prior to arriving in the Bahamas.

Most most modern knowledge about Anne stems from Charles Johnson‘s A General History of the Pyrates (a contemporary collection of pirate biographies, thought to be exaggerated with tales and accountings).

She was fairly young when she married a poor sailor and small-time pirate named James Bonny who she met in America. The marriage apparently was a rouse as James thought he would inherit much of her father’s fortune. Too bad for him that Anne was disowned by her father and cut out of his will.

Sometime between 1714 and 1717 Anne and James moved to Nassau. While in the Bahamas, Bonny began mingling with pirates in the local taverns. She met John “Calico Jack” Rackham, captain of the pirate sloop Revenge, became his mistress, and they had a daughter. You can read more about Anne Bonny at Wikipedia!

We had a lot of responses for this one. But Tonight’s code winners are:

Cameron
