The weather on the Island has been fantastic and most of us are hoping that Old Man Winter has packed his bag and moved on for another year. Come out to the Emerald Club on Friday, March 2nd from 7:00-9:00 pm and help us channel SPRING!! Matt will have cold beverages and FREE food. There will be some fun Spring themed games to help us “get our Spring On” and hopefully Mother Nature will get the message so we can spend some time outside. We will be fundraising for Warrior Surf Foundation of EI, and Rob will be on site to tell us about all the GREAT things that the organization does for our veterans. This is also a good opportunity to be sure that you are signed up for our next big event the ST PATRICK’S DAY BOOTH at the Emerald Isle St. Patrick’s Day Festival. We are still accepting raffle donations and we need volunteers to work the booth on March 17th. The sign up sheet will be at the membership table or you can contact Jimi Crampton or Moh Traini. We look forward to a big turnout on March 2nd as we celebrate the end of Winter.
The Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club will hold their monthly Phlocking on Friday, February 3rd at the Emerald Club. The fun begins at 7:00 pm. It’s that AMOROUS time of the year, so put on some RED or slap on a few HEARTS and come “Party with a Purpose”!! Our 50-50 drawing will raise funds for HEARTworm prevention for dogs at our local shelter. There will be fun COUPLES games (singles are welcome too!) and of course prizes. As always the E-Club will provide a LOVEly location, some HEARTy food and drink specials that will make you want to KISS your bartender. Don’t forget to be FAITHFUL and pay your annual dues. You can also pick up a BEAUTIFUL Parrot Head T-shirt to show some DEVOTION for the EIPHC.
Marcia McMahan , Lisa Miller, and Rita Babich are hosting this month’s Phirst Phriday Phlocking with a surf theme. The festivities will start around 7:00 on May 6th at the Emerald Club. This month the charity for the 50:50 Raffle will be the Bogue Banks Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. Come and hang ten with us anticipating fun games including limbo poles, Beach balls and other interesting props!
There will be games of the usual sort, so expect to be recruited for the fun stuff! Everyone will have the chance to enter the traditional 50/50 raffle benefitting the Humane Societies’ special fund for heartworm treatment.
We will honor our Veterans and the men and women who serve our country. Let’s show our support by wearing a yellow ribbon, a patriotic hat, or waving a miniature flag on Friday night! We will celebrate with good music and food and as always at the Emerald Club, there will be games and lots of fun. Also don’t forget to bring your leftover candy for our upcoming parade. Hope to see you there, Jan H.
October 2nd, 7 PM First Friday PHlocking at the Emerald Club – This will be the start of a great weekend! We will be working on some fun apple peeling activities to get ready for making apple butter the next day. We won’t be peeling all the apples at the PHlocking like last year, but we will have a few contests that are “apple related”. Instead, we will have a group of volunteers who will be peeling at the Synan household from 4:30 to PHlocking time. If you can help with the prep work of apple peeling for the apple butter project starting at 4:30, please contact Renee at email@example.com or call or message her at 919-697-3799.
Join us for a Tropical Toga Party, Jimmy Buffett style, this Friday September 4th at the Emerald Club starting around 7:00. Bring out your finest taga material and let’s get some fun competition going. The creativity of our group is continually amazing and I can’t wait to see what styles are presented, so bring it on!
There will be food provided by the E-Club via Eddie Peterson’s new restaurant, The Hubert Grill & Deli. The plan is to have finger sandwiches and a fruit and cheese selection. Feel free to bring some Toga Party food to share (Greek?). As usual there will be Corona and Landshark special; and some great tunes to get you on the dance floor.
Got a few news items coming down the pipeline about the Phlocking/Island Party weekend.
August 7th Phlocking will be a Margaritaville Luau featuring DJ Rob with his usual selection of entertaining and danceable tunes. Wear your best island Luau attire, or at least something wild and festive!
August 9th the Island Party will be going from 1:00 PM till about 5:00 PM. Remember that this is a private party for Parrot Head Members and their guests.
