The Island Time Tavern and The Emerald Isle Parrot Heads are teaming up for a Charity Chili Cook-off on Sunday, October 15, 2017. We are in search of the best “Chili Cookers” that Emerald Isle has to offer and of course some lucky “tasters” to choose the “Chili King or Queen”. Bring your best pot of chili and help us raise money for cancer research!! There is a $10 Entry fee for chili makers and a $5 fee for tasting!! The tasting is fantastic (especially when paired with a cold brew)!! The winner of this year’s event will receive a plaque and a $50 Island Time Tavern gift certificate!! Bragging rights also will be allowed for one year!! So dig deep for that secret family recipe or invent something new. You will need to bring your entry in a crock pot and bring your own ladle for serving. Chili entries must be at Island Times Tavern by 12:30 and the Tasting begins at 1:00. See you all there!
It’s time to get “Pretty in PINK” and raise money for a great cause! The week of October 6-15, 2017 will be packed full of fun and fundraising with the Emerald Isle Parrot Heads sponsoring events during the week in support of the great cause. Check out the weeks events at www.fishinforacure.com or on Facebook-Fishin’ For a Cure. It’s not too late to sign-up for any or all of the events. The EIPHC will once again sponsor “Tutus for Tatas” (AKA-Divas Run for the Roses) on Saturday, October 14th. Registration will be from 9:00-9:30am at Flipperz. The walk will start at 10:00am and will conclude with a champagne toast and awards/giveaways. This is always a fun time so put on your PINK and join us!! On Sunday, October 15th we will wrap up the weeks events with Beer Yoga and our Charity Chili Cook-off. Ann-Maria (our island YOGA GODDESS) will be leading beer yoga at Island Times Tavern from 10:00-11:00am. Donations will be accepted to cover your participation. Hang around after yoga or come in a little later for our Charity Chili Cook-off (also at Island Times Tavern). The chili tasting will begin at 1:00pm. The entry fee is $10 and the tasting fee is $5 with all money raised going to cancer research. This is always an AWESOME week on Emerald Isle and the events raise a lot of money for charity.

Hello Emerald Isle Parrot Heads!! Our monthly Phlocking will be held on Friday, October 6, 2017 at the E-Club. The fun begins at 7:00pm. Our theme for this month Phlock, Rock and Roll and we will be helping our Parrot Head community participate in the “Hidden Rock” trend that has “rolled out” all over NC. We will have a special painting area set up where you can create your own special rock to hide in the area for a lucky passerby to find. If you’re not familiar with the trend check out Carteret Rocks or Onslow Rocks on Facebook. The 50/50 drawing will benefit Misplaced Mutts of the Crystal Coast. There will be music (some Rock and Roll of course), food and fun as always. Come out and kick off the month with your Emerald Isle Parrot Head friends!!
Parrot Heads in Paradise have been awarding qualified parrot heads and their children a total of $10,000 in scholarships every year for the last 10 years. Fundraising has been just keeping pace with our pay-outs each year and we want to add some additional funds to ensure future years’ have adequate funding. To make sure that we can continue to award these gifts well into the future we have come up with a great way to help that cause. Windjammer cruises has donated a cruise for two to raffle off this year. Below are all the details about this great cruise. We will be selling tickets via PayPal or check right up until MOTM. We will draw for the cruise Saturday, November 5th from the stage at Meeting of the Minds for the seven night cruise on this beautiful boat. Winners do not need to be present at MOTM to win the cruise! Tickets are five for $20 or five dollars for one. I will send you via email with a list of your numbers so you have them for your records. I will be tracking the name and numbers of every ticket coming in and they will all be in Key West for the drawing. You can pay via PayPal www.paypal.com toPHiPscholarshipraffle@yahoo.

The time to celebrate the slowing down of the season with our annual Coast is Clear Under the Pier Party is here. It is still on so come join us. Details on the website and in the last newsletter. Come help us celebrate, bring some money for raffle tickets and hotdogs. The Carteret Humane Society Shelter needs some help and we will donate all proceeds to them! See you there.
It’s time for another EIPHC annual tradition. On September 17th (Sunday),we will celebrate the end of another fantastic summer season in Emerald Isle and enjoy our beautiful beach with a few less people on it. Mendy Barrows and Michael Moyer will once again act as the official hosts and “weenie rollers” (hotdogs are cooked ahead and wrapped in foil and kept warm). The Club will provide the hotdogs, fixings and chips. If you would like to bring something to share, please do. As always there will have games, music and a raffle with gift certificates etc.. If you would like to make donations of items for the raffle, please contact a member of your EIPHC board. Cash donations will be accepted for the food that you eat and all funds raised will be donated to the Carteret County Humane Society. Beach driving will be open and we will have a truck available to collect donations of dog and cat food and kitty litter. These items are always needed at the shelter.
We gather to the left of the pier as you face the water, past the trailer park, by the Cedar Street Parking Lot (private). If you’re driving, you’ll see us to the right as you come off the Black Skimmer access. This event is open to Parrot Heads and guests and it is a family friendly event. Don’t forget to bring a chair, your beverage of choice, suntan lotion and shade. It is a bit of a walk from the Pier Parking so you can phone a friend with a driving permit for the beach or bum a ride with someone who has access to Cedar St. Parking.
This is always a GREAT event and so much FUN!! Come out an celebrate as the Locals take back the beach!
