A groundswell of CM scuttlebutt is beginning to build, at least at the lowest levels, that projections for the Pirate and Princess party events are way, way behind. And that this event may not be offered in future years.
I submit for further consideration this tidbit: our bill at the Rose and Crown this evening came with a Pirate/Princess flyer tucked into the server folder. Have they EVER resorted to this kind of marketing before? It reeks of desperation.
