REMINDER:  Club member dues are due in January of each year,  We have sent out reminders in the January and February newsletters. If your dues have not been paid by March 31st,  your membership information will be removed from our data base. That means you will no longer receive emails, newsletters etc., from the Emerald Isle Parrothead club. If you decide to re-join later you will have to fill out a new application.

If you are in town, you can pay your dues at our St Patrick’s Day Booth. If not, dues can be paid in the following ways.

Annual dues are $10 PER PERSON, PER YEAR. If you joined this past October, November, or December, your dues are not due until next January(2019) These are the two ways to pay your dues which are $10.00 per year per person. 1.  You can mail the dues to: Emerald Isle Parrot Heads PO Box 4293 Emerald Isle NC 28594-4293.  2. The easiest way is to go to the website and use the PayPal link. To do this, go to the box on the right that says click here to join or renew.

Calling all Captains!!!

We are planning the biannual sound sweep by boat, on Saturday April 21st.

We will try to match crew with boat captains, but are  at  this time looking for more boats! So please contact Val Johnson at if you have a boat, and/or can accommodate an eager crew! Ask your friends and neighbors too!

Our tentative schedule is for Saturday April 21st from 11-1:00, starting in the ICW off the EI boat ramp, heading west,  with a gathering on Pelican Island afterwards!

If that Sat. doesn’t work for you, Bogue Banks Surf Rider Organization is planning a similar cleanup on  Sunday April 22nd., cleaning the sound islands heading east. Let Val know if you need contact info for them.

Windy Warriors for March Phlocking

What a great turnout last night! Although the wind howled, our hearty Parrot Heads partied on for a purpose! The 50/50 raffle brought in $254 for the Warrior Surf Foundation Emerald Isle chapter. This fantastic organization provides free surf lessons through clinics, for veterans and their families. Healing through waves versus medications. For more information or volunteer opportunities visit
We had several new members join the phlock last night, and we welcome you and hope to see you at our New Member social in April.
Also, El Presidente, Jan Hicks was slinging club t-shirts all night. Hope to see these being flaunted around the area!
Thank you all for making our club fun, friendly, and giving! See you at the St. Patrick’s Day Festival!
