Announcing On Site Registration for Meeting of the Minds 2017

First you MUST be a Parrot Head Club member to attend MOTM. You know we verify EVERY club member who attends every year. This is an IRS requirement.
When we are in Key West we DO NOT have the ability to verify your membership. Come to the registration area and fill out the special ”MOTM On-Site Registration / Virtual Club Membership form”. Please DO NOT join the Virtual Club before showing up to register on-site, as, again we will not be able to confirm your membership. Fill out the form, the registration cost is $90.00, the Virtual Club membership cost is $30.00, late fee is $30.00.
You will not get a free event t-shirt or gift bag when you on-site register. Remember we had to order that stuff in mid-September and you missed the deadline. Late Registration? $30.00 fee. Why? Because we want you to register before the deadline so we can prepare everything for you in advance. Registration is open for well over 9 months...We don’t want you to register late…this is only to help people who have a situation that did not allow a regular registration during the year. So, the cost to attend MOTM via late registration is $150.00 on-site. You will walk away with a personalized credential and wristband that allows you to attend all events at the Casa Marina and even ride the shuttle all over the island during the event.  Remember there is no free event shirt or gift bag with on-site registration but you are then ready to join your PHriends and see the show!!
If you want to register on site be sure to show up during regular registration hours as there are NO exceptions to these hours. We have an awesome registration crew that are all-volunteer and they need to enjoy MOTM too! On-site registration is during the normal registration hours of Thursday 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, Friday 9:00 AM to noon, as well as 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM, and Saturday from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Remember you will be registering up front at the Casa Marina in the ballroom beside the lobby. No one will be able to enter the Casa Marina without a credential and wristband during MOTM when registration starts on Thursday.
$150.00 cash or credit card will be accepted for registration on-site during the hours listed above. Once again, after you register you will have everything you need to attend the entire event, ride the Parrot Head shuttle around Key West from the Casa Marina, and enjoy a membership in the Virtual Parrot Head Club for the balance of 2017. There are no exceptions to this process as this is just to help folks who need to use this method of registration. See you in Key West!

Please join us Saturday, November 4, 2017 for the annual Lone Palm Foundation Live Auction to benefit the Parrot Head Emergency PHUND.
The auction will follow the PHIP, Inc General Meeting - APPROX 11:00AM
Great one of a kind items including a LandShark autographed surfboard by JB and Coral Reefers.  We also have an autographed Mac McAnally album from 1977 that survived hurricane IRMA (rode out the storm at the frame shop in Key West).  PLUS we are hoping our guitar that was signed by Toby Keith, Coral Reefers and Trop Rocker's who entertained us at the CASA last year survived IRMA in storage... if so this is a very unique item.  Watch the Lone Palm Foundation Facebook page for item updates prior to the convention.
SO, with all that said... head on down to Key West for the 26th Annual Meeting of the Minds.
