The latest edition of the PHIP Newsletter is now online!!!

Good morning Parrot Heads,

The latest edition of the PHIP Tradewind Times is now on the website.  You can go to this link:  to view it.  Or you can always go to the PHIP website, and click on the Chapters section and scroll down and select the Tradewind Times.

In this issue:  Rob Hill presents the full musical schedule for Meeting of the Minds, a Texan laments the lack of Buffett concerts in his home state this year and ponders what if Buffett had moved to Texas in the 1970s. (It isn’t as far fetched as you think), we have everything you need to know about the three upcoming club contests, and we provide links to a dozen upcoming club events.

President’s Notes July 2021


A big whopping “Thank You” and “Couldn’t do it without you” goes to our valued volunteers! This note is dedicated directly to YOU.  The EIPHC Board each year spends endless hours planning and working to make our dreams come true.  All members on the Board take their jobs seriously and represent the backbone of this club!

Big Birds are amazing as they plan and manage the monthly Phlockings. Some Big Birds become famous for strategically organizing our marvelous yearly events. Now, take a moment to think about those serving on committees, peddling T-shirts and raffle tickets, soliciting for donations and sponsors, working with vendors, providing and distributing media, developing and maintaining technical support, registering participants, being card sharks and Santa helpers, making floats, cleaning up highways and community projects and the list goes on and on and on!

Please keep this “Thank You Note” in mind as you attend our events. When you see volunteers doing their thing, stop and thank them. Let them know that we appreciate their smiles, enthusiasm. and hard work! Ask them how you can become a volunteer too! Even with no pay, it’s a great job!

I’ll see you guys Friday, August 6, at our Phlocking to celebrate the 19th year anniversary of EIPHC and then again Saturday, August 7, at our 17th Beach Bike Poker Run! Can’t wait! Visit our website for details. Fins Up! Jan H. President
