President’s Notes January 2021

It’s easy for us to get bogged down in the daily grind and lose our motivation in the things we really love to do. Don’t let that happen to you! Stay well informed by reading your Newsletter and visiting www.emeraldisleparrotheads.com often to keep up with what’s happening in the world of Parrot Heads.

A great way for you to know us better and become involved in upcoming events is to attend our annual “PHluff the PHlock” Membership Meeting scheduled for Sunday March 7, at 4 p.m. The meeting will be virtual and held via ZOOM. The February Newsletter will contain additional information. Your suggestions and involvement in deciding the directions we take this year is of great importance to us.  Let your voice be heard! After all, you are the reason we’re still here!

Lastly, you are reminded to renew or pay your dues for 2021. Thank you if you already have done so. Each of you is a valued member of this Parrot Head PHamily.  Listen up, it will get better, and the time will come when you can hug again, spill your drink on your best buddy, step inside someone’s space, dance like a PHool, and work side by side! Raise your glasses high and let’s drink to the adventures that lie ahead in 2021!  We will “Party with a Purpose.” Jan H., President

It’s almost time! MOTM 2021 Registration!

Even as we as a community and a country navigate our way through loss and tragedy amidst the most challenging time in our memories,  we look ahead to a day of renewal and rebirth and recovery when we Parrot Heads are Back on our Phins Again! And that day is coming soon. Registration for Meeting of the Minds 2021 – “Party at the End of the World”  – opens at 11:07 am Eastern Time on January 21, 2021.

No need to knock on wood. With registration starting at 11:07 on 1-21-21 for an event that begins November 3 and runs through 11-7-21, MOTM 21 is, numerologically speaking, the safest bet you’ll ever make! And with music programs added for Wednesday and Sunday of MOTM week, it’s a Key West Jackpot – five days of music and friends and partying with a purpose in paradise.

We will be rolling out more of the details of the entertainment program in the coming days, but you can bet your bottom dollar the lineup will include some staples – Howard Livingston and Mile Marker 24, some exciting debuts – Opening Night with “Girls Just Wanna Have Rum!”, Steel City’s Corned Beef and Curry making their first MOTM trip,  and the addition of Kelly McGuire’s Lighthouse Songwriter Showcase – and some traditional charity cases – Jim Hoehn breaks his own record by appearing at MOTM for the 76th straight year, a remarkable career achievement for a man who knows just three chords on the guitar. And of course you won’t be able to tip a shot ski without spilling tequila on a Coral Reefer!

(Note: We are confident ww will soon be able to reveal the participation of John Frinzi, but the announcement has been delayed due to extensive negotiations and some minor litigation over the terms of his 16-page hair-and-makeup contract rider.)

Some changes to know about:
With just a slight uptick in the registration cost to lucky $97.77, MOTM is a remarkable bargain, especially with two additional days of music added to the program! But we’ve made a couple of changes to make sure our charity beneficiaries do not take a hit during these challenging times. With sponsors tightening their belts, especially those in the hard hit hospitality industry, we are counting on Parrot Heads to come through with support for these great causes, as we always do, because it’s what we do. We’ve made two adjustments to help make it happen.

Event tee shirts are an optional purchase. Event surveys demonstrate that some people are passionate about their event shirts while others report having entire guest houses filled with Parrot Head souvenir tees. By making the tees an optional additional purchase, we will be able to save tens of thousands for our charities without having to increase registration costs for folks who have closets full of coral and magenta tops.

VIP Registration. For $200 (per individual or couple in addition to registration cost), you can be an MOTM VIP/Sponsor. This earns you a program shoutout, a welcome gift and other goodies, but most importantly, for the FIRST FIFTY VIP REGISTRANTS only, the option to purchase a guaranteed premium beachfront room at the Casa Marina. If you are among the first fifty VIP registrants, you need not reserve your room at the Casa. We become your “Concierge,” and we will do it for you! (Please note this is not a guarantee of any particular room or suite.) Yes, it’s an extra expense for those who choose it, and yes, the best rooms are no longer first-come-first-serve, but at least you don’t have to repeatedly call the Casa’s reservations line like a teenager trying to win a radio station prize just to get your room!

Go to www.PHIP.com to register, beginning 11:07 am Thursday, 1-21-21.

You must register for MOTM to reserve a room at Casa Marina. Beginning at 11:07 am on 1-21-21, book a room at http://group.waldorfastoria.com/sdumf, or call 1-888-303-5717 with code ZZPHIP for the PHIP Discount.

Phins Up!
