Hello and Happy Thursday!!
Happy Thursday, Parrot Heads! It’s club meeting week! Hope to see you all there.
Saturday, November 16, 6pm
Hoppers Sports Grill, Wheat Ridge
This month’s charity will go to the Tennyson Center for Children. Children who go to Tennyson have experienced unimaginable abuse and neglect, and many have never known a safe home or a trustworthy adult. The Center hosts an amazing Christmas Party for the kids, so we’d like to donate our club money this month to help buy gifts and food for their Christmas event.
Please help us out, by bringing a raffle prize or 2! We always greatly appreciate the donated prizes.
Copper Skye, featuring Heather Vidal!
Heather was nominated in a bunch of categories in the Trop Rock Music Awards at Meeting of the Minds. She is a graduate of University of Northern Colorado and currently lives in Pennsylvania.

–Bring a snack to share and beverage of your choice. (no need to bring chairs)

The front has the original Parrot Head logo on it, and the back has a picture on it provided by Dixie LaHood. The pictures here don’t do it justice. They are awesome!! We’ll have them at all the meetings. If you can’t attend a meeting and would like one… 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.

Colorado Avalanche Game??
We didn’t have enough interest to get the tickets for the October 12 game, but I think we have enough to get tickets for the January 2 game against the defending Stanley Cup Champs, St Louis Blues!
Thanks to those who have contacted us and expressed interest in going.
The tickets are $88 each, first level, 2 attack zone seats. Please contact Pete, Robin or Karen if you are interested in joining us on January 2, 2020.
Escape to Margaritaville is coming to Denver for the holidays!!!
Ticket Sales are closed, Robin has the tickets this week. She will have them at the November meeting and at the December meeting. If you can’t make it to any of the club events, please contact Karen by email at email@example.com or Robin (by replying to this email) and arrange picking up your tickets. It is not our responsibility to get your tickets to you. We had a few problems with distribution of Rockies tickets, so please make arrangements to pick up your own tickets. Because of the problems we had with the Rockies tickets, we can not mail the tickets this time.
Showtime: JAN 5, 2020 at 2:00PM
Jeff Dunham is coming to the 1ST BANK Center (Broomfield Events Center) on April 4.
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)
