Slot machines, Horse races & the Cedar Island Band

Who’s ready for a Road Trip???????

The Isle of Iowa Parrothead Party Buswill be departing for Des Moines next Saturday, October 8.  Destination – Livingston Saturday Night featuring the sounds of the Cedar Island Band.

We’ve got a great travelling party assembled so far but we still have room for more parrotheads who are ready to Party with a Purpose with the Des Moines Parrothead Club.  Now that our phlocking is over, it’s time to kick back, relax and get on the bus for this fun-filled road trip (no volunteer shiftsJ)!  Remember – this trip is open to members and non-members of our club so recruit your family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers to get on the bus with us! Did I mention we were upgraded (at no charge) to a deluxe luxury motor coach?

The cost for this trip is only $50and that includes the bus ride, games & entertainment, some special door prizes, your ticket to Livingston Saturday Night, and all the JELLO shots you could ask for!  We will also be conducting a special 50/50 Raffle (thanks Saul) on the bus and one lucky parrothead will pocket half of the proceeds.  Tickets will be $1.00 each with the other half of the proceeds used to cover the bus driver’s tip.  

Now is the time to get registered.  Contact Bart Mason, Membership Director at 319-930-2833 (phone or text) or at [email protected](e-mail) to get registered for this great trip.
