Ok Parrot Head Phlock.

Let’s get out and support Matt and listen to the Will and Tony Show, and Scearce, Ketner, Stover, and Spence! There will be a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, great music, cold drinks, and good PHriends. Hope to see a good crowd at our 1st Phlash Phlocking of 2020.

President’s Notes January 2020

What better way to start off the New Year than to have an opportunity to see Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band live in concert! Open your mind and let the phantasy begin. Come hear the stories in his music about life, people, friends, society and relationships. It’s a special lifetime event. No where will you ever be as welcomed by complete strangers! Everyone is there to have a good time!

Jimmy is playing at Walnut Creek in Raleigh for his 26th concert in that venue on April 18, 2020. This tour is called the “Slack Tide Tour” and promises to bring lots of phun and surprises! If you’ve never been or if you’ve been to all 26, each concert evolves into a creature of its own and one you will never forget. As you know, Parrot Heads are a different culture and our festivities can’t be compared to any other. Phlocks roam the parking lots visiting others tailgating, 75% of the crowd looks like they’re tourists in Hawaii, Beach Balls fly over and on you during the entire time, T-shirts get blown into the audience as far as the lawn, and the band is truly amazing. This includes the entire band, not just Jimmy…so much talent! Whether you are young or “vintage” this is the time to go!

See me or Jessi Holland at the phlocking on Friday, February 7, at E-Club beginning at 7 p.m. for additional information or to purchase a bus ticket and we’ll “Party with a Purpose!” Jan H.

PHLUFF UP THE PHLOCK 2020

The Phluffing was a phun time for visiting and working together as we planned 2020!  A big “Thank You” to our 2019 Board and Committee members for their countless hours of service and a warm “Welcome” to our newly elected 2020 Board and Committee members for their promise of a successful new year!  Here’s a special “Thank You” to all of our volunteers in all capacities for the time and effort you will give to make this year another great year to remember as we “Party with a Purpose!”

President’s Notes December 2019

“Life is a journey that’s measured not in miles or years but in experiences” says Jimmy. Thank you all for your support as we sailed through 2019, with great phun, great phriends and great events! We shared our forever moments of complete insanity partying on the beach, biking from bar to bar with over 300 bikers, enjoying bus trips to brewery and cheering at our favorite ball games, cleaning beaches and highways, and phlocking together on our Phriday nights! These represent a few experiences but there’s lots more we celebrate with you each year while we strive to help our causes and community be even better than the year before!

As we approach the New Year, it’s time to set our sails for new adventures! With 570 members, we will make a positive difference by continuing to show our love for where we live, the laid-back life we live, and the crazy and wonderful people we know! Your membership is greatly appreciated and the dues you pay help make this club successful.

Now, all you Parrot Heads get out there, do what you do best, and “Party with a purpose!” The EIPHC ship sails again in January 2020 and I hope to see you on it! Be safe and Happy New Year! Jan H., President
