Last Phlocking of 2018 😕

December 7th , First Friday PHlocking – 7 PM Emerald Club . Let’s start off the
Christmas Season by having some fun and doing something for those who will have no home
for Christmas. At this month’s PHlocking we will be dressing in RED or GREEN just to warm
up to the whole season. If you don’t wear either color, you may be GRINCHED. Want to
know what happens if you get GRINCHED? Not telling! Matt will have DJ Robbie and free
food. If you have not signed up for the Santa Crawl yet, you can register at the PHlocking for
$10. If you wish to register the day of the event (the next day 12/8/18) you will pay $15.
Check out the Santa Crawl details in this newsletter.
This year for our Christmas Charity, we will be asking members to donate to Family Promise
of Carteret County. We had intended to donate our parade float winnings (are we
presumptive) of First Place ($250) to this organization. Please read the information on the
families assisted this year by this faith based organization that is at the end of this
newsletter. The needs are great and the hurricane resulted in more families in need of help
finding homes. Several of the churches that house families at night (Family Promise has only
office/day space) were damaged and for a bit, homeless families were housed in the day space.

“Flo Reel” success…

What a fantastic showing this year for our Tu-tus for Ta-tas and Chili cook-off! $3,650 for 2018 Fishin’ for a Cure (hurricane relief)

Special thanks to Flippers, Emerald Club, and Island Time Tavern for supporting and hosting these events!!!

If you missed the fun, these are annual events…so mark your calendars for next year!

Boogity, boogity, boogity!…Race Update

November 2nd Phlocking… karaoke Meeting of the Minds

In addition to all the events going on, we have our November Phlocking coming up. Since the Meeting of the Minds is happening in Key West, we will have our own event with live entertainment. It’s us, we the people. DJ Robb will have karaoke for our singing and listening pleasure. This way you can sing songs you DON’T know by heart. The raffle funds from this event will be donated to our local USO in Jacksonville. Hosted by Rita Babich….as always 7pm at the Emerald Club

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!

PHantastic February PHlocking

What a great night despite the cold weather! Some us showed out hopeful for early Spring… but most of us were bundled up, waiting out winter.

Matt at Eclub provided some hearty vittles, while DJ Robbie was blasting some great tunes! Thanks to our hosts, Moh Traini and Rose Gerrell, Parrotheads raised $222 (how appropriate for the date) for the Do It For Drew foundation. We welcome the New Members that joined and are excited to see our club continue to grow!
