Anna Maria Island
- The  Anna Maria Island Privateers are turning 40! To kick-off their anniversary year the Privateers' pirates plan to "invade" the town offices of the City of Anna Maria;
located at 10005 Gulf Dr, Anna Maria 34216 on January 3rd at 4:30pm.

1971-2011 FORTY YEARS OF PRIVATEERS is the theme for the upcoming year as the the Anna Maria Island Privateers look to celebrate this monumental occasion. To kick-off the Privateers anniversary year a "pirate invasion" has been planned and a list of "demands" has been compiled. In regards to this event, Tim "Hammer" Thompson who is the 40th Anniversary Chairman has submitted the following: 
Avast Ye!
Through communiqué from within the pirate krewe of the Anna Maria Island Privateers, plans are being formalized for the 60 foot long pirate ship "Skullywag" to invade the town offices of the City of Anna Maria on Monday, January 3rd at 4:30pm. Plans indicate the newly elected Mayor Mike Selby will be captured by the Privateers at cannon fire, taken aboard the ship and shackled to the mast; to be held for ransom until their list of demands has been met. The pirates will be calling for city commissioners to declare a Decree of Privateering, to be valid for the entire year of 2011. In addition they will be demanding a Key to the City for the act of pillaging and plundering all year, as the Anna Maria Island Privateers prepare to celebrate their 40th year of existence.

The communiqué also indicates the event will include pirates and wenches, grog, music by Mike Sales and much merriment. The Privateers' pirates are summoning all common folk, landlubbers and other mainland dignitaries to join in the fun and witness the kick-off to this historical event!

Ye be fair warned of the shenanigans about to happen!
