Island Party Transportation Update

The EIPHC Anniversary Weekend Island Party will be held Sunday, August 6, 2017 on Pelican Island in Swansboro, NC. Parrot Head members arriving by land can catch a ride to the island by coming to the docks between Bake, Bottle and Brew and Saltwater Grill. A special thanks to Parrot Head Captains Jason Holland and Steve Johnson for helping with transportation to the island. They will shuttle to the island beginning at 12 noon and run every 30 minutes. The island party is for Emerald Isle Parrot Head member and their guest only. Come celebrate “Island Style”!!

Happy Anniversary to Us!! August 4-6, 2017

It’s time to come out and celebrate another Anniversary Weekend with the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club. Plans for our Parrot Head Club Anniversary Weekend have been in the works for a while and we are all looking forward to a weekend full of PHUN and PHRIENDS.
The celebration begins as always with our First Friday PHlocking on Friday (Aug. 4th). Matt and the E-Club will be hosting and our favorite PH Chef, Jack Synan will be cooking a pig. There will be great drink specials and some free swag too! The new expanded patio area is open and there will be some fantastic music on the new outdoor stage. Join us on Friday night from 7-9pm.
Our Anniversary Island Party (August 6th) is out on Pelican Island. Parrot Heads and friends will arrive by boat, kayak, canoe, or other(?) for a fun day in the sun and water with games, grllin’ & chillin’, and music by Dicky Scearce & Jack Ketner. We need lots of help for the planning and we will have sign up sheets at the PHlocking. We need a few big birds to be in charge so please help by letting me know before the PHlocking if you can coordinate. Email Sue Stone at stonesend@gmail.com. Sign up sheets will be at the PHlocking. There will be a few specific emails to keep you all up to date on where and when to catch a ride if you need one.
Just so you know, this is the Annual event where we “fun raise”. No money involved, This party is just a way to thank our members for doing such good things all year. EIPHC provides hamburgers, hotdogs, rolls and condiments. There will be a few games, a swimming spot, music and all y’all provide is the fun, a dish to share and chairs, umbrellas, sunglasses and sun screen. No dogs allowed (due to food stealing, spilled drinks and general mayhem). We need volunteers to purchase the food, provide boat transportation to those that have no water vehicles, plan the games, clean up the island before and after, cook some food etc. Everyone can help. Everyone is invited and you can bring guests but it is not a public event.
It’s going to be a GREAT weekend!! Come out and celebrate the EIPHC!!

little island going by bringing in the big bucks and entertaining the
locals! Look deep in your wardrobe for some fun stuff to participate in our
TACKY TOURIST THEMED JULY PHLOCKING! Yes, we know you have some of that
touristy stuff before you became an EI local or a weekender. Anything goes,
so bring out the dark socks and sandals, the zinc oxide, the belly bags and
all those “Wings” Emerald Isle Shirts. The Phlocking will be Friday, July 7th at the E-Club. We party from 7-9 pm and we even welcome those special summer visitors.
Our 50/50 raffle will benefit A Second Helping Mission. A Second Helping- Emerald Isle is a community supported project to collect leftover food from vacationers as they leave the island. They have two drop off centers in Emerald Isle on Saturday mornings. Beside Bert’s Surf Shop 8-11 am and Stir It Up Coffee Shop 7-9 am at Emerald Plantation. The group needs money to buy a banner to make them more visible and money to buy ice each week. You can even sign up to volunteer at the meeting.
