CPHC Newsletter

Hello Parrot Heads. I hope everyone is doing well.

June Meeting: Thanks to those who showed up for our June meeting. It was different, but we had fun.. and it was nice to see people again after all these months!

We have no idea what will happen for the July club meeting, but stay tuned and I will let you know when we find out.

Pool Party at Janette’s!!!

When: Saturday, July 11, 3:00 PM until ??
Where: Jannette’s House

As most of you are aware, Janette missed quite a bit of last year, as she was stuck in the hospital. She missed all the holidays and a lot of PHC meetings/events. She wants to open her home to the CPHC to have a pool party. She’s ready to party and celebrate everything she missed last year and all of this year to date.

We will have pizza for everyone, so please bring a side dish, chips, dessert or something that goes with pizza, to share.

If you don’t feel comfortable sharing food, please bring your own.

Everyone bring your own drinks and bring a chair.

Retirement Parade!!

Longtime Parrot Head member, Bill Light, is retiring from King Soopers after 43 years!! Because of COVID-19, they are not having retirement parties for anyone… So we thought we’d throw him a Parrothead Style “retirement parade.” Dress up in your best Parrothead attire, and we’ll have a parade through his store on Monday, July 6.

When : Monday, July 6 – 4:00 PM
Where: King Soopers – 9731 W 58th Ave, Arvada, CO 80002
(We’ll meet at the West side of the entrance so we can get into “parade formation” and go into the store together)

After our parade, we plan on going over to the El Tapatio on Wadsworth, and have dinner together on their outdoor patio. Address of El Tapatio – 5390 Wadsworth Bypass, Arvada, CO 80002

Jimmy Buffett has moved the Red Rocks show to September 2021. The new dates are Sept 7 and 9.

Thank you to those who responded. If you have not responded, I will keep your tickets held for next year. If you had Thursday night tickets, you will still have Thursday night tickets, etc. If you want a refund, please include your current address on your request. I found out some people moved 10+ years ago and the roster still has the old address on it. I’d rather not run into problems when sending out checks.

Given the size of Pete’s yard, there is plenty of room to practice social distancing.

We are still having our charity silent auction and raffle baskets, so please donate what you can for these.

Please let me know what you plan on donating for the silent auction, by July 20, so I can make up bid sheets in advance.

Start getting those gift baskets ready as well!

PHIP Membership benefits!!

On Friday, May 29, a new PHiP Members Only portal was opened, and all PHiP members get discounts for various things. See the “Member Benefits” section at https://www.phip.com/

When you open up the portal, your Parrot Head Club Member Benefit Lies waiting behind door number 3!!

Here is the important part: This is YOUR benefit for being part of a Parrot Head Club! Please don’t share these benefits on social media or to the public. Over time passwords will change and will be sent to all leaders via direct email to keep these special deals available for all of our PHiP club members.

In order to get the password, please contact me, by replying to this email, and I will provide the password to those who are members in good standing.

When you log into the PHiP portal, on the left side, you will see a link to the Margaritaville store where you see all the details on how to receive your 15% off online discount! Margaritaville is going to monitor the log-in traffic to ensure only PHiP club members are logging in. All the details about the discount can be found at https://www/phip.com/awards

This is just the beginning and know that these discounts take time to develop and get online for you, but there are currently more PHiP Member Benefits in the pipeline coming very soon!!

Club T-shirts!!

We still have plenty of t-shirts for our 25th Anniversary!!! We have quite an assortment of colors (Pink, as shown below, Black, Butter Yellow, Caribbean Blue, Steel Gray, Periwinkle, Salmon and Sea Foam Green). We have a wide variety of sizes, and both men’s and lady’s cut shirts (lady’s cut are only available in pink). The one shown below is a lady’s cut, with both front and back pictured.

Please contact Robin or Pete to arrange getting your cool new club shirt! The cost is $30 each. (if you can’t make it to a meeting to pick one up, drop a check in the mail to us and please add $5 per shirt for shipping.)

The t-shirts are stored at Pete’s house, so give Pete a call if you want to stop by and pick up a shirt or 2, plus we will have them at all the club meetings.

Misc. Events

Jeff Dunham is coming to the 1ST BANK Center (Broomfield Events Center).

The SHOW IS MOVED TO December 12, 2020!!
Several in our group are interested in going, so we checked into group tickets. They don’t really have a group ticket sales up there, and we were not able to get a large group of tickets, but we did manage to get a few. We have a very limited number, so we will sell them on a first come first serve basis. The cost is $75 each. Sorry we can’t accommodate everyone, but there are still tickets for sale, so if you’d like to go, and can’t fit into our limited number, please buy some tickets online. It will be a very fun night. “Jeffafa” is a SUPER funny!

Contact Robin if you’d like to buy tickets. (by replying to this email)
