Parrot Log -Saturday, May 12, 2018 (The Saturday Update)

Monthly Meeting – Thursday, May 17 at Chrome Horse Saloon! 

That’s right!  Make sure to come out & join us at the Monthly Meeting this Thursday!  We will have representatives from the Iowa City Shelter House on hand to sell 50/50 tickets & talk about their efforts.  Feel free to bring toiletries to donate to them!  We’ve got some really cool things to announce & you can pick up your club concert tickets for the Des Moines show on May 22!  We are also accepting donations for the Island Fever Showcase Raffle!  Right now we are looking for 40 nice items that can stand-alone in the raffle or that can make the main focal point for a basket.  These signature items should have a value of at least $20 and can include both items that you purchase or items that you create (paintings, drawings, sculptures, crafty Knick knacks, wood projects, signs, framed photographs, etc.) We’ll be meeting in the Rider Room at the Chrome Horse (1201 3rd Street SE; Cedar Rapids, IA) on Thursday, May 17.

Club Concert Tickets Have Arrived! 

If you ordered a club seat for the concert in Des Moines, we have received them!  You can pick them up at the next monthly meeting in the Rider Room at the Chrome Horse (1201 3rd Street SE; Cedar Rapids, IA) on Thursday, May 17.  Otherwise, you will need to contact Bart Mason (319-930-2833) to make arrangements to get them.

Speaking of the Concert…

The Isle of Iowa & the Des Moines Parrot Head Club are two of the official co-hosts of the Tuesday on the Island II Tailgate at the Wells Fargo Arena.  It’s going to be one heck of a party in the parking lot complete with a performance by Iowa’s hottest Trop Rock band – The Bamboozlers!  The festivities start at 2:00 PM in the parking lot just outside the Community Choice Convention Center.  There will be food, beverages & many special give-aways!  We even have a special charity raffle with some amazing prizes including a trip to Margaritaville!    We will need some club volunteers to assist with staffing our club information station & the charity raffle ticket sales.  Please let Bart (319-930-2833) know if you are willing to assist.

21st Birthday Bash (and Pub Crawl)…

That’s right kiddos – we’re finally legal!  We will be celebrating our club’s 21st anniversary on Saturday, May 19.  We’ll get things started early with an epic Pub Crawl through NewBo & the Czech Village.  The crawl will ultimately end up at the Chrome Horse in the Rider Room for the official birthday celebration beginning at 4:30 PM.  The Parrot Head of the Year (and some other special awards) will be announced around 6:00 PM.  Make sure to get this date marked in your calendar!
