“Par-Tee” with a Purpose – Rescheduled to Saturday, April 14th

Par-Tee with a purpose….
Ok guys, I’m sorry to say this, but we will have to postpone the Disc Golf Tournament scheduled for tomorrow at 10am.
Since the forecast is rainy and windy, we feel like Sunday will be muddy and slick.
So, we are rescheduled for Saturday the 14th, 10am for singles, lunch, then teams.
Any questions or concerns, text me at 919 697 3794.  Jack Synan

The EIPHC will hold our monthly Phlocking at the Emerald Club on Friday, April 7th from 7-9pm. The Phlocking will kick off a fun weekend that will include our First Annual Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club Disc Golf Tournament. The weather has gotten warmer and it’s time to get out and “Par-Tee” with a purpose. Come out on Friday to help kick off the weekend. Matt will be providing FREE food and the beverages will be cold and plentiful. The 50/50 drawing will benefit Emerald Isle Parks and Recreation to help replace the tee boxes on the town Disc Golf course at EI Woods.

On Saturday April 14th, the fun will continue as the discs fly in the 1st Annual EIPHC Disc Golf Tournament.  Jack Synan and Black Dog Provisions will be providing the food so you know it will be FANTASTIC!!  There will be Novice and Advanced categories with prizes offered for both.  Funds raised will benefit the EI Parks and Recreation to make continued improvements to the course.  It should be great event and we hope that everyone will come out to either play or support the teams.  For more information….see the previous post on the website or Facebook.  Disregard date on the image below, now April 14th

St. Patrick’s Day Raffle Check Presentation

On Monday, March 26th the Emerald Isle Parrot Head Club presented the Town of Emerald Isle with a check for two thousand dollars ($2000). The money was raised at the EIPHC booth by raffling off items donated by club members and community businesses. The funds will be used by the town to purchase defibrillators for the town’s first responders. Mayor Barber accepted the check from event Big Birds – Jimi Crampton and Moh Traini. Thanks to all the volunteers working the booth and the individuals and businesses who donated prizes. The event was a great success and I’m pretty sure that a good time was had by all!!

Disc Golf Clean Up

Just a reminder that we need volunteers to help with clean up of the disc golf course at EI Woods in advance of our Par-Tee with a Purpose  Disc Golf Tournament in April. The clean up will be  this Saturday,  March 31st at 10am. Bring gloves and lots of muscle!  Thanks and see you there.

President’s Notes, March 2018

Wow, what an active month March has been! The accomplishments and acknowledgements of the EIPHC this month were profound! It started with our fabulous March Phlocking, followed by our Quarterly Board Meeting. Next, I spoke at the Emerald Isle Business Association’s luncheon, on behalf of the Parrot Heads, who were eager to hear of the work and contributions made by us. In the same week, Ken Stone, on behalf of the EIPHC, accepted a “Proclamation” from Mayor Eddie Barber, at the Emerald Isle Board of Commissioner’s Meeting, in recognition of our “Service, Volunteerism, and Fun.” Several Club Members attended to support Ken and show our gratitude to the Town. Later, it was time to head down to the Emerald Isle St. Patty’s Day Festival and join my Pheathered Phriends at the Parrot Head Booth. Wow, volunteers from our Club worked so hard all day and the raffle donations were awesome! Our efforts paid off! What a fun and beautiful day! Still not done…Carl and our Big Birds, Jimi and Moh, arranged to present a $2,000 check to the Town of Emerald Isle for the purchase of a much-needed defibrillator. Way to go Parrot Heads!!

Great things are happening at EIPHC. Our volunteers and Big Birds are matchless. We are so fortunate to have you. In fact, the Board is currently designing a “Checklist” form to assist in the management of an event. We are continuing our efforts make it easier for any of you to be involved in our event leadership, no matter if it’s your first or thirty-first!
Thanks again to all! Hope to see you at the April 6 Phlocking, followed by the April 7 Disc Golf Tournament, as we continue to “Party with a purpose.” Jan Hicks

Windy Warriors for March Phlocking

What a great turnout last night! Although the wind howled, our hearty Parrot Heads partied on for a purpose! The 50/50 raffle brought in $254 for the Warrior Surf Foundation Emerald Isle chapter. This fantastic organization provides free surf lessons through clinics, for veterans and their families. Healing through waves versus medications. For more information or volunteer opportunities visit
We had several new members join the phlock last night, and we welcome you and hope to see you at our New Member social in April.
Also, El Presidente, Jan Hicks was slinging club t-shirts all night. Hope to see these being flaunted around the area!
