Hello Parrot Heads:
It is the extreme honor of the 2019 PHiP Board of Directors to announce the winners of the 2019 scholarships. We would like to thank our judges for their hard work and efforts in reading each and every application. The applicants had to answer three questions as well as submit a blind essay (The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?). Wee received many applications and these fine judges had some very tough decisions to make.
Full congratulations go out to all our applicants and the board wishes each and every one of you good luck with your continued education. It was a very close decision and each of the winners should be very proud of what they do.
The winners of the 2019 scholarships are:
Zachary Erlemann, from Cary North Carolina (Parrot Heads Of North Carolina) is the winner of the first place award of $5000.
Samuel Kwatkosky from Ocala Florida (Ocala Parrothead Club) is the winner of the second place award of $3000.
Anna Lee Twigg from Gambrills Maryland (Annapolis Parrot Head Club) is the winner of the third place award of $2000.
Again, congratulations to the three winners and thank you to all that applied as well as our judges who took many hours out of their days to help in making this very tough decision.

MOTM 2019 is going to find the parrotheads, in attendance B-U-S-Y!! The musical lineups for the annual phlocking is phantastic. We hope you’ve enjoyed all of the phestivities that the summer has offered – but have saved energy for the super, fantastic lineup at MOTM.
1) music every day, all day at the Casa
2) great shopping at the mini mart
3) great variety of gift baskets for a great basket raffle
Speaking of baskets for the basket raffle, we hope that you’ve had the chance to talk with your committee members, club members, people on the street, and anybody that will listen to you, about donating a basket to the MOTM basket raffle. In past years, we have had such a great & wide variety of baskets available for people to purchase raffle tickets for & are sure that this year will be no different. The basket that your club donates allows you to brag about your club, state, area & your members – so why not let the rest of the phlock see what you are so proud of. There will be shipping information in our next update.
And now back to our “regular programming”
As you’ve noticed from the previous e-mails from Andrew, this year there will be an increase in the amount of music at the Casa & times of operations of the mini mart, which will also mean an increase in the time to shop, enjoy the venue & shop some more. That being said, we find that the Gift Basket Raffle table will be in need of a few more volunteer ticket sellers to better serve the needs of our wonderful MOTM attendees. As in the past we will be offering flexibility on shifts, ability to sell tickets during registration, selling tickets on The Casa grounds (which will allow you to enjoy the music, the great Florida weather and the many other activities including the blood drive & group pictures); heck you may even find other volunteer activities that are of interest to you – – you just never know. If you have the time to help, we have a place for you.
If you have any questions, please contact us!

Hello Parrot Heads! It is a holiday weekend and you can feel Summer in the air! Here is the current update for PHiP’s 28th Annual Meeting of the Minds 2019 “License to Chill!”
PHUN, PHREE STUFF…READ ON….
It as been a couple of weeks since I have sent you an email. In that time many sponsor deals have been discussed and soon you will be hearing all about the things that our sponsors are bringing to the event. You are going to get a great deal for your registration dollars from the event shirt, the many things that are going to be in your tropical Christmas stocking I mean gift bag, and the awesome entertainment… well I always like to add some tweaks to the music on the schedule or change something for the better as we get closer to the event. I will be telling you about all that as soon as the deals are in ink. When you get to PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds at the Casa Marina you are going to have a chance with great odds I might add to win some really cool stuff this year. A 27 mile jet ski tour off the beach, a Margaritaville frozen concoction maker, drawings to win a special main stage VIP viewing area for YOU and 5 of your PHriends! How would you like some free special snacks and beverages in your special viewing area? How would you like to sit on some outdoor furniture from our new partner Shelter Logic? Get ready. This is just some of many things that will be announced over the coming weeks. There is some cool stuff being worked on. I really want to tell you more but I just need a little more time…

Here is YOUR update on PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds 2019 “License to Chill” in Key West, Florida!
Well here we are… it’s already the month of May! Jimmy Buffett concerts are happening and people are registering and booking travel for the 28th annual PHiP Meeting of the Minds in Key West!
Behind The Scenes There Is A Ton of Team Work Happening To Support The Event!
I want to tell you that even though you only hear a report every few weeks things are brewing to make PHiP’s MOTM 2019 one to remember but is that anything new? Everyone MOTM is special. I cannot share details yet as plans are in the works and special segment embellishments are being planned but you need to be in Key West for this one! You can see the online schedule https://www.phip.com/meeting-schedule
which is a great entertainment deal already…and all the way until the day of the start of the event things will be in the works that will deliver way more entertainment than you paid for and you can take my word for it. I just had an hour-long call with Tall Paul yesterday about the 2019 Beachside Album Hour on Saturday at PHiP’s MOTM where the Jimmy Buffett album “License to Chill” will be played from beginning to end. I know you are familiar with that one and you can only imagine how many guests there will be with backing from most of the Coral Reefer Band as well as other guest musicians. You have to be registered to see all these special events at the Casa Marina!
Here is the link to register for the 28th edition of PHiP’s ANNUAL MEETING OF THE MINDS 2019:

PHiP’s MOTM Charity Gift Basket Raffle
Here is a note from our charity raffle basket leadership team of Joe and Lorene: By now we’ve sent out an e-mail to all clubs and we hope you’ve had the opportunity to discuss it with your committees. The e-mail was concerning a gift basket donation representing your club to the PHiP’s MOTM charity gift basket raffle. As you may or may not be aware all monies raised from the ticket sales for the gift basket raffle are donated to charities in the Key West area as we have no expenses thanks to our generous volunteers. There are many deserving charities and that makes the decision by the PHiP board more challenging but they take on this daunting task at the conclusion of each year’s MOTM and deserving charities benefit. We can’t say this enough, but we do want to say it one more time. Between the wonderful basket donations and the MOTM basket raffle volunteers with their dedication to hard work and the fun that we have when we get together as we PARTY WITH A PURPOSE the gift basket raffle is something that we so look forward to being involved with each and every year. We want to thank each and every one of you in advance. QUESTIONS? If you’ve got ‘em, please don’t hesitate to ask ‘em. we may not know all the answers but we do know who to ask. Here is our email contact below.
