Hi Krewe, I hope you all are doing well.  It’s been awhile since I've had to speak up.  However,  I, your Master at Arms, have seen a lack of armbands.  When we are in grab, whether we are in St. Augustine, or in California, our Krewe of the 13 armbands must be visible.   I’ve seen photos of our Krewe in Tybee Island not wearing armbands.  I have also seen youtube videos where only one Krewe member was wearing an armband.  This is against our bylaws, and unacceptable. When we all joined this Krewe, we all signed the bylaws, confirming that we read and understand the rules:  Arm Bands “Arm bands shall be worn by all Officers,Core Members, Benefactors,and Swabbies when in Garb. This is for two purposes 1) when we are seen to be doing charitable work, and also having fun, it is a recruiting tool, 2) more importantly when there are problems with pirates acting inappropriately in public we can set ourselves apart…”   That being said, when you garb up, don’t forget your armband. When you pose for a picture, turn so that your armband is visible in the photo.     I know the armbands suck when wearing it on the arm.  It slides down, and usually does not stay put.  I wear mine on my bultric. I’ve seen ladies wear them on their heads, or around their waists.  You can be creative as to where you wear it, but the key words are, wear it!    Starting immediately, we are implementing an armband contribution.  This means if you are caught without your armband, or not visible in photos, you will be asked for a $5.00 donation to our War Chest.     Let me know if you have any questions,   Wade Zaggy Master at Arms
