The 25th Annual Meeting of the Minds August Update

The 25th Annual Meeting of the Minds 2016 August Update!

Hello Parrot Heads! The registrations are flying in, the volunteer positions are mostly sold out, and MOTM registration closes in 35 days! Don’t get left out! Register NOW!
Volunteer status and Meeting of the Minds      
I was sitting on the beach in Key West last night on vacation thinking about all the volunteers that work at Meeting of the Minds to make it the event that it is. Every day of the year I get updates via email and phone calls telling me about all the things that our hard working volunteers are doing to make this event happen. I constantly read about how the clubs of this great organization raise money that collectively amount to millions of dollars and millions of volunteer hours. This is an amazing community to be a part of and Meeting of the Minds is the event that celebrates our success as an organization. If you can make it to MOTM you should come on down and feel the spirit of this special group of people and musicians in 2016. At this point most of our volunteer positions have been slammed to the point we had to close the registration for them. There is only one slot left and we could use your help if you want to volunteer. We need help for the raffle on Saturday from noon to 3:00 PM. If you want to volunteer this would be a place that would really help get everyone raffle tickets at the last minute before our raffle closes. If you want to volunteer for this slot please email Rick Fyffe directly at  Everything else is covered! Not only do we have a crowd coming that are volunteers before they get here…YOU all volunteer to make MOTM happen. Thank you all. This event is yours and it will be awesome!
