Kali's Hourglass Crew Calendar for March

March is going to be a very busy month for all of us.  Our first event is the very popular North Texas Irish Festival that several of our members have attended for years.  Admiral Ramon, Cannoball Joe, and  I will be steaming up the event, showing off Celtic inspired Steampunk/Clockpunk attire.  Our ship's inventor and chrono-anthropologist, professor Phineas Maxwell Edison, will be there volunteering for the North Texas Irish Festival event in Russian Gypsy garb.  Crew members plan to attend on Friday, which features free admission between 6-7pm and also on Saturday.  On Friday we will also be making port at our usual shore leave spot Club Excuses for Panoptikon!

Additionally, on March 8th, I will begin my training as a docent for the Genghis Khan exhibit at the Irving Arts Center.  I hope many members of the community can make it out to this summer event which will take a fascinating look at one of history's central figures!

Fair Winds and Following Seas to you all!
