Hello Parrotheads. On this September, 11, 2020… let us all take time to remember the events of September 11, 2001.
On Sept. 11, 2001, America was forever changed. It has been 19 years since the attacks, but that tragic day, which served as a true test of the American spirit, will be remembered always.
So on this day, we observe Patriot Day and all that it represents—we honor the value of life, those we loved and lost, our country’s resilience, and the strength of the American spirit.
“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” — Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl.
Long time Colorado Parrothead Member, Rob Timlin is in the hospital awaiting a kidney and liver transplant. Rob isn’t just a forty-something-year-old guy who works hard, plays harder, and would do anything for a friend… He’s now a forty-something-year-old guy who’s fighting for his life due to complications from COVID.
Up until a few months ago, Rob was a perfectly healthy guy. Rob ended up in the ICU on a ventilator for a month because of COVID. After months of ups and downs, Rob’s liver and kidneys have decided they’re exhausted too – and Rob is officially on the transplant list for both. He is too sick to go home, so he will wait in the hospital for this precious gift of life.
Rob and Stacy would never dream of asking people for money, but their friend set up a GoFundMe account for them. Please consider sending any amount you can. Even $10 adds up when dozens of people each give. If you cannot give today, mark your calendar for your next payday to come back and give then. They have a very long road ahead – and the need will still exist in a few weeks or months.
Below is the link where you can donate. Anything helps. Thank you!!
Still tentative, but not looking good.
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.

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.
