Bluefoot Pirate Adventure for our Special Needs Kids

Friday, June 29th Edit:
OK Guys, since the last event was rained out, we've officially changed the date to Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 2:30PM. Everyone who registered last time, I'm asking that you REPOST how many in your group are going and if you can't go on the new date, I'm asking that you please let us know. 
Sorry for the delay in getting the new date but we had to work some things out before rescheduling.
As usual, we have a FANTASTIC Group Rate of just $10.00 (66% Off!) per person for our "Cost of Autism Special Needs Cruise". Additionally, the "Pirate Pack" is only $5.00 (75% Off!)
Please PRE Register by clicking on the Event here, since Space IS Limited.

If you're NOT on Facebook, simply add a comment at the bottom of this page with how many are going with you.  PLEASE make sure to use some sort of Authentication, such as Google, Twitter or Yahoo, so we have a way to follow up with you.


Friday, June 15th Edit:
Our Event on Sunday June 10th at 3PM was an ABSOLUTE HIT.  EVERYWHERE I looked, there was NOTHING but smiles.  EVERYONE, adults, our kids and their siblings had a FANTASTIC time. Check out our Facebook page for pictures and videos!
We've decided to make the NEXT event for our kids on Sunday June 24th at 1PM.  To minimize confusion, I'm asking that everyone who wants to go, please go directly to the Event Page we have on Facebook and click "We are going" then on the Comments Section, put how many will be in your group! 
PLEASE remember that while bringing Siblings and close friends to the Event is OK, we're primarily organizing this for Our Special Needs Kids.  So if this isn't you, we would appreciate it if you would go directly to Bluefoot Pirate Adventures website and buy the regular tickets for your family. THANKS!!!
Saturday June 2nd Edit:
With one week and one day left to the event, we've had a lot of people really excited about going, which is fantastic!  Unfortunately, there's been several people, (about 14 in Total including their groups) that WANT to go, but we no longer have space.  So I'm reviving the idea of putting together another cruise.  I'm thinking about making it for the following Sunday, at the same time 3PM, but I'd like YOUR feedback if there's another day or time that works better for you.  Please let us know.  If you think the following Sunday at 3PM is perfect, PLEASE LET US KNOW.... THANKS!, now hit the "Comments Section"!
Anyone who's seen the Video for Bluefoot Pirate Adventures has wanted to take their kids out to see it.  However the price might scare some landlubbers away!  At 25.00 per person, $100.00 for the average family of 4 might seem a bit steep.  Doubly so for our families with special needs kids, as our expenses are usually higher than most.  We took Jonathan on this "High Seas Adventure" and he had the time of his life!  In this regard, the cost of admission is well worth the price.

As with any place, we all know that if you get a group going it's easier to get a discount, so we called Captain Jack over at Bluefoot Pirate Adventures and made a proposal to have our families come as a group if we could get a group discounted rate.  The old buccaneer gave us a run for our money, but in the end settled on a HUGE discount, showing his heart for our kids was just as squishy as a jellyfish!  Instead of the $25.00 usual fee, our group would get a fantastic rate of just $10.00 (a 60% discount) and instead of having you fork over $15.00 for the optional Sword, Pirate Eye Patch and Head scarf (all take home items), our kids would get them all for only $5.00!
Please keep in mind that while we are getting this special price for our "Special Needs" kids, family members are welcome to tag along at this same price, however since we can only fit 49 people in total on the ship, we would like to limit this event and exclude those kids who are not part of a family with a special needs child.  An exception to this would be a teacher of a special needs child who would like her children to come and accompany a child that she teaches at a special needs school, such as PBSA.  Thanks for your understanding in this regard.
Now here's the problem, We're not exactly sure how many people are interested and if we will need to do more than 1 Adventure, since We can only fit 49 43 people on a this trip so what we would like for you guys to do is to reply to this post with a: 
"Yes, we can go on June 10th - there will be X of us" (Please include everyone, Mom, Dad, Siblings)...  or:
"No, could we have a second trip on the following weekend - There are X of us".  Once we have enough of an interest for the first trip, that will help us determine if we should have a second one
Edit... It looks like there's just not enough interest in the first trip to warrant a second one, which is too bad because the kids will definitely have a blast and there's quite a few parents that have told me that they would like to go, but simply can't make this date.  Perhaps in the future we will organize another event, but at the rate this is filling up it looks like we'll probably end up with around 40 people, not quite a full ship.
As of May 24th there are only 17 spots left, so please make sure you go ahead and fill into the Comments section if you're going, or go to our Event on FB and click that you're going and add in the Comments section how many of you are coming.

Yes, still 3PM, though to get this price we need to get at least 40 people in total.  Honestly I thought there would be a much bigger response than what I've seen so far.

Well, so far from the looks of this Blog, we only have about 14 pledging to go and maybe another 4 or 5 are saying that they want to go in the FaceBook Autism Group, (but they haven't posted here though... so I'm not so sure of how solid they are).  We have room for 49, so feel free to bring the whole family...

Let me ask you guys a question, my wife brought up the fact that June 17th is Fathers day, is that a positive or a negative?  Should I reschedule it for another time?  Possibly the following Sunday?  Or would this be good on Father's Day?
