Hellooooo Parrot Heads!

We are just a few days away from the weekend and our monthly club meeting. I hope you are all planning on joining us for this one – it’s going to be a meeting full of information, surprises and PHUN!

Club Meeting: Saturday, June 16

This Saturday we have a really special night planned at Hoppers Sports Grill. Not only will we get to mingle with Parrot Head friends and enjoy some great music, but we have a few fun surprises this month! Read on to get all the details…

Did someone say Landshark? We will have lots of news about the upcoming concert and all sorts of details about pre-show happenings. In fact, we’re expecting a special guest or two this weekend, as the fine folks behind Landshark will be joining us! Yep, Hoppers will have Landshark for us to enjoy at the meeting this month, in addition to their regular offerings. The Budweiser team behind Landshark will be there to tell us all about their concert day happenings. Who knows, they may bring some free swag, maybe even buy you a beer… they may even have a special giveaway! I guess you’ll need to be there to find out and join in the fun!

This month’s charity is the Melanoma Foundation – for real this time! Pete and Robin have gotten some really awesome stuff for the raffle, including stuff to help you have fun in the sun (safely of course!) Plus, if you’re into flamingos (and who isn’t?) then you’ll want to bring some extra raffle cash! Word on the street is that there is a virtual FLOCK of fun flamingo stuff up for grabs in the raffle. Bring some extra dollar bills y’all… this isn’t going to be your typical “crap!” Plus every dollar raised in the raffle will benefit the Miles for Melanoma walk. To learn more about the walk, or if you wish to participate/donate, visit the Becky’s Buddies team page at melanoma.org/. Let’s all pitch in to help this cause and make fun in the sun safer for everyone.

This is the last meeting before the Party With a Purpose! Do you have your tickets? As a reminder, next month we won’t be meeting at Hoppers, because we’ll be Partying with a Purpose in Castle Rock with Thom Shepherd, Coley McCabe and Donny Brewer! We’ll have more on PWAP later in this email, but as a reminder, this is the last meeting before the event, so if you don’t have your tickets, stop procrastinating and get them from Lee on Saturday night!

Remember, we still want and need PWAP donations for our raffle and silent auction. Bring whatever you’ve got to the meeting this Saturday! You can also bring your non-perishable foods, peanut butter and pop-tops!

2 Weeks until the Eagles/Buffett concert!

The time is almost here! We are still finalizing just a few details on all the great events happening before the show on Thursday, June 28. Next week our email will be dedicated to all the pre-concert happenings, so watch for the email and use it to plan your pre-concert fun!

If anyone still has show ticket they need to sell, please let me know. I’m still receiving inquiries, so we’d be happy to pass the word along if you have tickets for sale (face value offers only.)

Party With A Purpose Is Almost Here!!

This is not a drill. Our Party With a Purpose is next month!

For the 6th and final year, Lee and Robin Grodsky are hosting the Party With a Purpose at their home in Castle Rock. This party is much more than a big house concert, it’s truly an event! It’s a full day of great music, food, drink, prizes, and FUN! Not only that, but this party has become the largest non-corporate fundraiser for TLC Meals on Wheels. That’s thanks to YOU and your support. We hope you can join us at Lee & Robin’s home one more time to celebrate all the great work we’ve done (while having fun) for all these years.

Party With a Purpose Details
The party kicks off on Saturday, July 21 at 1 PM. Music starts at 2 PM. This year we’re fortunate to have Thom Shephard and Coley McCabe both returning to PWAP, plus they’re bringing their friend & awesome Trop Rocker Donny Brewer! It will be a day full of awesome entertainments. Tickets are just $25 for this private show from 3 amazing musicians! Purchase your tickets in advance; we sold out the past few years! Contact us at news@colophc.org if you want to reserve a ticket, and we’ll get you in touch with Lee.

Plan Ahead for PWAP: What to Bring (and what not to bring)

  • Please bring your own chairs, blanket, and shade; pop-up tents are welcome.
    This is a rain or shine event so dress accordingly.
  • The temperature can change quite a bit from the afternoon until the evening, so be prepared for anything. Bring layers!
  • BYO favorite beverage; water and non-alcoholic drinks will be available.
  • Please bring a side dish to share. We love to try all your awesome homemade side dishes! As we have in the past, we’ll provide the main courses, typically burgers, BBQ and much more.
  • We’d love for you to bring some non-perishable food and care items for humans and pets for donation to TLC Meals on Wheels. Help us fill our trailer with donations!
  • Feel free to bring your friends and family members, even if they aren’t Parrot Heads. If this sounds like their kind of event, I’m sure we’d love to have them join the party (ticket required; must be 21)
  • Please leave your kiddos and/or furbabies with a sitter. This is a 21+ event.
  • Bring money, whether that be a checkbook, credit card or cash. We will have some really great raffle and silent auction items, so you’re going to want to participate (and hopefully, win!)

Have questions about PWAP? Do you want Lee’s email address so you can purchase a ticket? Need a recommendation for a Castle Rock area hotel? Do you have a great item for or raffle or silent auction? Please contact us and I’ll get you all the info you need.

That’s all from me. I hope to see you all on Saturday!

Fins UP!
