Time Sensitive information: If you have not heard already, Jimmy Buffett will be doing a concert in Walnut Creek (Raleigh) on April 18th (Saturday). As in the past, Parrot Head Club members can purchase inside tickets to sit with other Parrot Head Clubs. You of course have the option of purchasing tickets directly for lawn or inside seats (but we may be able to purchase lawn seats through the club in bulk but don’t have the price yet)….but if you want to guarantee yourself an inside seat, you can commit to tickets through our club. I am not positive but we usually have this opportunity before the tickets go on sale publically. It always is a very short turnaround to get our numbers into the National Club (Parrot Heads in Paradise PHIP) and we just got word so get your calendars out and see if it works for you.
Tickets purchased through Parrot Heads (national PHIP) will cost $150.25. Because these are earmarked seats, we must let the National folks know by January 17th, which means you must let us know by January 15th (Wednesday) how many tickets you wish to purchase. You can either sign up at the January PHlocking (oh yeah, that is tonight) or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, to get on the list, but be sure you want tickets as once we submit the list to national, you are responsible for paying for the tickets, once we know they have been reserved.
A few folks have asked about a bus and Jan did check, we have tentatively reserved a bus for 47 and the cost would be approximately $40 per person. One hitch, we need one person to be the coordinator and 2-3 Parrot Head volunteers to help put together the trip with bus, coordinate tickets, secure payment for tickets etc. We can only get tickets if we have a Ticket Coordinator and we need someone to work with the Ticket Coordinator to put in place the bus part of the event. Know everyone who went last time loved the bus, concert and fun. Not a big job to put together but we do need someone to spearhead the concert event. See you all tonight and look for the sign up sheet. We will try to answer questions but it will be a busy night with collection of annual dues so be patient.
