Catch the Fever...Island Fever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have the Fever?  

Island Fever is fast approaching and if you have not already done so, it is time for you to catch the Fever!  

The Isle of Iowa will be hosting our Island Fever Phlocking on Saturday, October 1, from 6:00 p.m. until Midnight at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.  If you have not booked your hotel room yet, you need to act fast!  Our special room block is close to selling out.  Currently only 6 rooms remain in the block at the Clarion.  To reserve your room, call the Clarion Hotel at 319-366-8671 and ask for the Isle of Iowa room block and request the Parrothead Rate of $87.  These are the last 6 rooms available at the hotel as the Clarion is completely sold out on Saturday night! 

We have also reserved a second room block at the Econolodge which is within easy walking distance (less than a block) to the Clarion.  Single Queen rooms are available for the special rate of $54.99 and King/Double Queen rooms are available for $62.99.  Again, you need to ask for the Isle of Iowa room block and request the special rate.  

Please note that both of these room blocks are first-come, first-serve and the blocks will close on September 22 when the rooms within each block will be released back into the reservation system.  At that time the special rates may no longer be applicable.  

Other lodging options in the area (within walking distance) that may have rooms available include the following…

This is a great event that supports two wonderful charities – Waypoint Services in Cedar Rapids & the Johnson County Crisis Center in Iowa City.  We hope to raise a significant amount of money to contribute to these worthy organizations and we sure hope that you will be willing to support this great event by coming out to Party with a Purpose. Tickets may be purchased in advance for $15 ($20 at the door) through the link on our website @  

Headlining our event this year is the Cedar Island Band with a special appearance by Jambo Joe Bones.  There will be a silent auction, a special Booze Pull and many other special activities!  Purchase your tickets today and help us spread the Fever by forwarding this e-mail (along with our event poster) on to other club members, friends, neighbors & family members.  We hope to see you in Cedar Rapids on October 1!  

 Cath the Fever today!
