Wincing Devil Flash Mob Chantey Sing in DC! (7) Flash Mob Chantey Sing in Washington, DC! 23 Jul 08

No DC Area Chantey Sing Next Week! Aauugghh!! (or should that be "Aarrgghh!!"?)

I say we do an unauthorized, unsanctioned & impromptu Chantey Sing, downtown DC!

There is no way on the Great Green Globe that this can be scheduled to make everybody happy. If you can make it, great! If not, this might happen again, who knows? But then there's the beauty of a flash mob If I blast this out to the Chantey Sing List and Mudcat, we should get a enough people to make a credible mob. Face it, some of us have a head start on the mob-ishness.

Here's the plan:

Wednesday, July 30th (Nothing scheduled at Navy Memorial)
Rain or Shine!
Meet at Downtown at Navy Memorial. Right at a Metro stop.

We meet in front of The Lone Sailor Statue, we serenade him with "Nelson's Memory", (starting off with the usual closing number, marking our maverick status).
We sing till it gets dark, then wander off to a good restaurant, or back home to our humdrum lives.

Dress Code: Whatever. If you want to wear rig on the Metro (or carry it to work for us downtowners) that's great.

Remember the motto of the late Great Grace Murray Hopper, RADM, USN:
It's easier to apologize after than to obtain permission before.

Come all ye bold seaman wherever you're bound,
And always let Nelson's proud memory go round.
And pray that the wars and the tumult may cease,
For the greatest of gifts is a sweet lasting peace.
May the Lord put an end to these cruel old wars,
And bring peace and contentment to all our brave tars.
