2017 Parrot Head Golf Tournament
Sep 9, 2017

The 2017 Parrot Head Golf Tournament was held at Crystal Ridge Golf Course in Okotoks on Saturday, September 9th. The charity for the event was the Okotoks Food Bank. There were 40 golfers playing and a few others to help run and police the event. It was a very colourful crew with some pretty wild costumes and elaborately decorated carts.
In order to ensure the event went off peacefully, we enlisted the Margaritaville Police Department to ensure order. Constable Devlin was assigned the difficult task of keeping the peace.
While she did appear to enthusiastically apply the law, there were some protests. The "Parrot Head Lives Matter", social justice group are said to be lodging a protest that only Parrot Heads seemed to be the recipients of the many citations issued that day, and there were a few questionable "pat downs”!
All of the participants seemed to enjoy the day. There was a spontaneous showdown with Roy & Johnny on one side with their IED’s (faulty water balloons) and Cathy and Ashlea with their super soakers. The ladies got the best of that encounter.
While all this was going on, Tom, Dar, Tony & Bonnie managed to concentrate enough on golf to get the lowest score and win the “Great White Cup”.
This was their second time winning.
Best Cart went to Rob M. and Donna G., while Best Dressed lady was Paige S., and for the gentlemen….Gord C.
The biggest winner, however, was the Okotoks Food Bank with a total of $650 raised and a big bin of food donated.
Once again, the Calgary Parrot Heads show what “Party with a Purpose” really means!

Spring Phling 2017 - Original Joe's (Avenida)
Jun 10, 2017

[From Joyce's Comments] What a FANTASTIC night we all had at the 21st Annual Spring Phling on June 10! I just wanted to say thank you to all of the Parrot Heads who made their way through the pouring rain to Original Joe's-Avenida. The weather was here, but that didn't stop us from conga-lining out onto the patio! Great lead with the breast stroke, Roy!

There are 15 more club members that joined that evening and I believe that is because of Derek and Bev's diligence in personally speaking with every table. Thank you! We are now 101 members! Welcome to all of you who have recently signed up. We are a phun loving group of individuals who share the love of Jimmy Buffett's music and laidback lifestyle while helping the community and environment. We party with a purpose!

"Partying With A Purpose" was on everyone's mind last Saturday! First of all, I want to thank the members who helped to sell/take tickets at the door. It was fantastic knowing that people would be greeted with smiles and pleasantly welcomed! We love to have new faces at our events, and encourage you to bring along your friends. After all, if they are your friends then likely they are into the same lifestyle as you and would enjoy helping the community.

Thank you to Eva & Roy, and all of the members who helped them with decorating the bar. When the temperature outside is 0 degrees C., it's a challenge to make it feel like the tropics inside. I think that the palm trees, tiki torches, and flamingos helped that a lot!

The Silent Auction was a success, as was the 50/50 tickets being sold, thanks to Eva and Roy. It is an art to go around and ask for money for 50/50 tickets, and not make you feel like you are being badgered. I'm glad that one of our new members, Steve, won the $342 pot. Can you believe it? Two times a winner recently! Lucky member!!!

I would like to sincerely thank the club members who helped out with the Silent Auction. It would have been a challenge to try to time the ending of the auction with the end of a band's set, as far as actual time goes. It seemed to work well, and I can't thank you gals enough! I think that having all auction items paid for in twenty minutes was a new record. Thank you to everyone who bid on, and bought, the items!

All in all, the night was a HUGE success and we raised over $2500 for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary!

Christmas Charity Fundraiser 2015
Dec 12, 2015

On December 12th, the Calgary Parrot Head Club held its annual Christmas Phling and what a party it was. In support of The Calgary Firefighter Burn Treatment Society, we saw about 130 guests (members and nonmembers) made it out to the event. The dance floor was packed with the pH Unbalanced band playing tunes until about 1:00 AM before having to wrap it up for the evening.
Those phun-loving party goers still wanted more! This event featured many door prizes, a silent auction with twenty-four different baskets named by items representing songs of Jimmy Buffett, the pH Unbalanced Band who pumped out very danceable Jimmy tunes as well as other well known artists, a 50/50 draw worth $384.00 that was won by a new 2016 member, and the Calgary Firefighter Burn Treatment Society “Hot Stuff” Calendar boys were present to sell and sign their calendars, all in support of the charity.
As a result of this successful event, the total amount raised was $3,778.00. Congratulations Calgary Parrot Head Club on a great event and thank you to the volunteers who helped make this and all of the other events happen!

Gord 'n' Cindy's Labour Day Weekend Show 2015
Sep 6, 2015

Despite the rain and cool temperatures, all who showed up for The Labour Day Weekend Show had a good time. Fabulous food, a backyard fire, and shelters helped to keep us all warm. Lawn darts and ladder golf were the games of choice. We raised $100.00 for the Rocky View Food Bank from playing Heads or Tails. Thanks to Kevin Waterman for donating his winnings back. We look forward to the 2016 Labour Day Weekend Show. The long range forecast is not calling for rain and cold.

Steve 'n' Cathy's BBQ 2015
Aug 8, 2015

On the second weekend in August we gathered on a beautiful, sunny day at Steve & Cathy’s for their annual Bar B Q and Bocce tournament. About thirty-five members showed up to dine on Spolumbo’s burgers and contest for the Bocce bragging rights for the year. With Trop Rock music in the background we all had fun in the sun. After dinner, Cathy held her Jimmy Buffett trivia game. As usual she and most of the contestants cheated throughout the game, and of course, prizes were awarded. Phun galore!

2015 Annual River Clean-Up
May 3, 2015

Thanks to who came out for the 2015 River Clean Up! Had about 25 volunteers; exact count escapes me now, but we needed a 2nd sign-up sheet because the 1st one was full. Now that's enthusiasm! :-)
We had great luck with the weather, considering the forecast wasn't very optimistic earlier.
Thanks also goes to Hose and Hound Pub, which opened early for us to have coffee & Bailey’s before our big clean-up. We reconvened at the H & H again after a big clean-up that filled enough garbage bags to fill a small pick-up truck.
... Truly a worthwhile cause. And the City recognizes and appreciates our effort. Thanks again for your continued enthusiasm. :-)

Thank you everyone for the amazing party on Saturday night at the 2015 CPHC Spring Phling! At the peak of the event, the bar staff informed me that we had 180 people partying in our area and there were a lot of new faces and new members that showed up / signed up that evening! While we were partying with a purpose, we were able to raise a few thousand for the charity, Silvera for Seniors. Thank you to everyone who joined and a huge thank you to all of our volunteers who spent time setting up, taking down, running decorations, event registration, store, silent auction, 50/50 and everything else that made this a truly memorable night; we couldn't have done it without you and it is always appreciated!

2014 Pathway & River Clean-Up
May 25, 2014

A dozen Parrot Heads helped clean-up our designated section of the riverside pathway and shore. Not only did we need to clean up the debris from the Great Flood of 2013, but we also had to deal with higher water in previous years -- because this event, originally scheduled for early May, had been postponed until late May (only the 3rd postponement in this civic event's 47-year history!). Thus there was a higher water level on the Bow -- but still nowhere even close to last year's disastrous flood.
Afterwards, we all gathered with our MS-Run-and-Walk volunteers to enjoy food and drink and the good weather -- rain was originally forecasted, but we lucked out.
Thanks again to all volunteers who helped out that day -- both the River Clean-Up and the MS-Run-and-Walk. The enthusiasm was impressive!

Caw-caw! caw - caw ! caw- caw!!
Calling all Parrotthead campers and crew: Am pleased to report we all had a _great_ time camping at Bragg Creek Provincial Park, July 26 thru 28.
A small but tough & determined crew of tenters and campers, plus bonus: Day campers (thanks guys for coming out!) arrived who made the event a real parrot adventure. Activities were: horseshoes, golf range, guitars, beer pong, chasing pigeons, late nite native chants, chasing out intruders (full time job for Shane & Murray )
Oh yeah: And the odd beverage taken in between outdoorsy events.
Thank you all for attending this annual Parrot Head tradition.

Volunteer Team: High River Cleanup
Jul 7, 2013

Thank you all for coming out and getting muddy to help the poor flood victims in High River on Sunday July 7. It was a great event and very rewarding; also made us realize how fortunate we are to be "high and dry"

Those poor folks... Man, we were ready for anything (gear trucks, tools, many helping hands & equipment, gensets, food, water, more gear, etc. etc. etc. )...
_But!!_ we were NOT prepared for the look on those faces when we rolled in to help clean up their their homes!!

Do you all remember our first assignment? Old John on his 2 canes in the mud!? Real heartbreaker, eh? Apparently he was in ambulance just after we attempted to clean his home of 40+ years, and concluded that it could not be salvaged. Good grief, much sadness --
a real eye opener, eh?

Thank you to Shuckalucks for hiring the pH Unbalanced band – we couldn’t do it without you. Thanks as well to servers Jess & Kristen and bartenders Jarod & Dan… A job well done looking after a thirsty and hungry phlock. Thank you as well to PADS for supporting the Spring Phling and having Buffett, Monday, Orbital, Ross & Charlie in the house was great.

We had our 14th annual Christmas Drive at Shuckalucks Pub in support of the Calgary Veterans Food Bank and PADS Calgary. Thanks to Cisco Foods for their support and also to the regulars from Shucks for embracing our cause. We also had our silent auction; thanks to everyone who donated silent auction items and door prizes.
Thank you to the pH Unbalanced Band for putting on a great show. Joyce – you and the boys did a great job. Finally – a big shout out to Shuckalucks’ owner Sherry who helped with everything and made sure the evening went smoothly. Thank you to Shuckalucks for hiring the pH Unbalanced Band and allowing us to make this our most successful Christmas Drive yet.

Las Vegas 2008
Oct 17, 2008

The Las Vegas PHC Last Man Standing Party was just great with several live bands that played a lot of Jimmy tunes. The setting was great being around the pool with our Canadian flag draped over a Palm Tree. The street party on Saturday put on by Margaritaville was a long day with lots of phellow Canadians signing our flag with a few token wanna be Canadians. It was a huge hit and made it home this year

Club members participated in the Annual River clean-up again this year, and it was a great day to be outside! Among the more bizarre finds are the parts of 9th Avenue Bridge underneath that bridge.

Bring on Spring: @ Friar's Pub
Mar 15, 2008

Friar's Pub 2008: Lots of fun was had! Conga lines, leis, and tequila consumption galore. The pH Unbalanced Band, Jimmy Buffett tribute band par excellence, belted out the tunes for Parrotheads and other bar patrons (possible Parrot-Head wannabees?) Although it wasn't quite spring outside, it sure felt like a tropical summer inside!

Parrotheads & Pirateheads Hit Vegas - Week 1
Oct 21, 2007

Wow... What A Week... Talk about 'Life in the Fast Lane'...

We ended up with 24 Pirateheads in Vegas... Never did manage to get a picture of all of us together, but did get one with 14 of us...

We kinda' had our own 'Meeting of the Minds' in Sin City...

From Hooters Girls & Elvis... to Jimmy's band & 'Club Trini' members - Mike Utley & Robert Greenidge, along with Doyle Grisham, John Frinzi & Tommy Rocker jammin' at Hooters until 3:00 AM, we certainly had fun.. After raising the dead, (or maybe we never did go to sleep... ) we started again at a Hooters' Pool Party, then off to the Street Party at Margaritaville, a Parking Lot Party at the MGM, and finally to the Buffett concert, where we ended up on the Jumbotron from the Street Party at Margaritaville.

After a great concert, we ended the night back at Hooters for more...

There's no slowin' down yet... We ended the week with a helicopter tour from Vegas through the Grand Canyon and back...

What a Day... What a Week... What a Party...

I can hardly wait to see what we'll dig up to do next year....!
