PHiP’s MOTM 2020 Update – Casa 99% Sold Out, Drawings Ending Soon, A Music Note

The Casa Marina is 99% SOLD-OUT, Drawings END Tuesday, Aaron Scherz Band!

Hello everyone! Here are a few quick updates for PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds 2020. There are many distractions in the world right now and I hope you and yours are staying safe wherever you are. Better days are ahead and as the song line goes “Everything is Gonna’ be Alright.”
Before I get to the news I want to treat you to a video from Aaron Scherz who just released his brand new awesome single “Beach Town” yesterday and you can hear it now on Radiomargaritaville… I asked Aaron if he would give us a quick update on his band and up-coming set at the Casa Marina during PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds 2020. This band will feature Coral Reefers Doyle Grisham and Eric Darken as well as on-going Coral Reefer Will Kimbrough. There will be a stage full of awesome musicians that will electrify Aaron’s hits. Don’t miss this exclusive set only at PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds 2020! From there I will pass it to Aaron via this video link!
Our drawing deadlines for two great prizes are next Tuesday, March 31st at midnight EDT. I will to tell you more about the drawings below and the Casa Marina booking status. So let’s start with the Casa. There are exactly 3 suites left to sell for PHiP’s MOTM 2020. Once those are gone we are sold out in every room type at the Casa Marina which means we start building an over-flow list for any Casa reservation cancellations. Hurry if you want one of the remaining suites as they may book as soon as this email goes out.
The over-flow hotel for PHiP’s Meeting of the Minds is the newly renovated Reach Resort right down the beach from the Casa. If you do not want a suite at the Casa you can book at the Reach and request a move to the Casa if rooms become available in the class you want to book. If you use the Reach booking link provided below you will receive a 10% parrot head discount and a $20 resort fee discount. You must use the link below to get these discounts.
The 2020 MOTM Wait List for the Casa Marina – Here are the 3 steps below:
ONE:  Register for Meeting of the Minds 2020.
TWO:  Book your room at the Reach Resort. While our awesome Parrot Head rate is only valid at the Casa Marina the Reach is offering a discount to our group this year. This Reach Resort rate will not be priced as low as the Casa rate but there is a booking discount for MOTM Parrot Heads. There are some Casa Marina cancellations every year so booking early will put you up the list as we do go in order to move people over if vacancy happens through the year. This can happen right up to the event so give the hotel your cell number not your home number for contact!
THREE:   Email our MOTM Director of Registration Kathy Kaz at
Put in the title of your email “PHiP’s MOTM Casa Marina Wait List.” Tell Kathy you are booked at the Reach and registered for PHiP’s MOTM.  Kathy will add you to the Casa Marina wait list in the order in which you contact her.
We have to fill the Casa Marina so we will work very hard to move everyone we can if cancellations occur. We will be working down the order in which you reply to Kathy Kaz. Sorry for any confusion but it is best to manage this list through Kathy vs. contacting the hotel.
Here is the special link to the Reach Resort for our group discount – Again this is NOT the same rate as the Casa Marina. Simply copy and paste the URL below into your browser to access the exclusive rates available just for Parrot Heads!
Simply copy and paste the URL below into your browser to access the exclusive rates available for this group. Please note, the entire URL must be copied and pasted for it to work properly.

President’s Notes March 2020

What single word can you find that can turn someone’s day around for the better? Many come to mind…peace, joy, hope, compassion and more. But, the best of these is “LOVE!” With love in our hearts, what we say and what we do for others will strengthen and encourage ourselves and others as we work together to get through the craziness!

As you know, our club events and other community events are suspended, not by choice. Hopefully, we will have a clearer picture in a few weeks to make further decisions. Life as we know it continues to change every day and we have a long road ahead of us! We have the opportunity today and every day to take time to think of others and what we can do to make their day better. Many of you are already doing that by supporting our local businesses with gift cards, takeout orders, etc., and are serving as volunteers to help those in need. You are the best of the best! With a little bit of luck and love, we will come out of this stronger, better and ready to again “PARTY WITH A PURPOSE!” Until then with love, Jan H. Pres.
