KGHS Buccaneer Bash ’09

If you drove by the King George YMCA late Saturday night, May 9th, you may have wondered what a pirate ship was doing outside their entrance.  Well, the ship (thanks to Stan Palivoda for his loan) was on hand for the Buccaneer Bash After Prom Party, complete with pirates, a pier, and a huge crocodile all set to greet the King George High School students as they arrived for their all night celebration!  The annual After Prom Party, sponsored by the KGHS PTSA, provided the juniors and seniors a chance to celebrate the season in a safe, alcohol and drug free environment.  Many community organizations, businesses, parents, KGHS faculty & staff members made the event possible by contributing money, prizes, supplies, props, time and effort!

Once the students entered the party for a nominal fee, everything was free for their enjoyment.  As they entered the party, each received a KGHS “class of ’09” string backpack donated by Foote Title.   Palm trees and pirate décor adorned the YMCA throughout.  Thanks to Rayeann Hockensmith for her talented efforts to coordinate the decorations, the KGHS art students and teachers who made many of the decorations, and the parents who spend many hours making and setting up the decorations!  Many local businesses and parents contributed the food and beverages for the event.

There was an abundance of entertainment in every direction of the YMCA!  The students could ride a mechanical bull, joust with their friends, race with each other on the huge obstacle course or bungee run, on the inflatable systems throughout the night.  The video gaming room, sponsored by Game Stop of Fredericksburg, was a popular place of entertainment where they could play the many Xbox360 games projected up on the walls.  Thanks to Kevin Famoso from Game Stop and Jesse Ault for their efforts! 

Another hot spot was the Treasure Island Casino, where students could use the $50,000 Buccaneer Bucks that they received as they entered the party to play black jack, poker, or roulette.  Pit Boss Dee Carter and his crew of parents and teachers kept busy with the many players who took their chance at luck in the casino.  Everyone also had the opportunity to spin the wheel to win a prize just outside the casino.  Trader Jacks was open for business, a place where students could use their Buccaneer Bucks or casino winnings to buy college t-shirts, hoodies, or many other fun items.

Photographer Larry Stone was on hand all night taking photos of attendees, pirate style.  Thanks to Larry for donating the photos and his time!  Students could also walk away with a tattoo from Rayeann’s Tattoo Parlor. 

The “Swimmin’ Hole” was open for fun in the water.  Thanks to Kathy Williams for donating her time to come out to lead Zumba!  The kids really enjoyed dancing to the music with Kathy.  “The Ancient and the Young” and “Who Took Fred” bands performed during the night…thanks for providing the awesome music, guys! 

Thanks to King George Parks & Recreation for sponsoring Bingo with prizes!  A lot of students spent time relaxing and playing bingo.  There was also a special place set up to relax and watch a movie, Cast Away Island.  The attendees had a chance to participate in a scavenger hunt and to enter the Swashbuckler Competition.  Congratulations to Joe Gibb for winning the Swashbuckler Competition and to Bryan Murphy, runner up!

And of course, there were loads of prizes given away throughout the night, thanks to the many donations made by our community!  The grand finale of the Party was the drawings for the remaining and grand prizes.   Thanks to the King George Builders Association for sponsoring the Senior Grand Prize of $500!

The KGHS PTSA After Prom Party Committee would like to thank the many generous contributors for their donations and support! “It takes a village to raise a child”…and this village made the difference. It was a safe Prom weekend in King George!
