Christmas Party 2016

Christmas Party 2016

Our popular Christmas party is set for Saturday, December 3rd. The doors will open at 6:00 p.m. The location is the Highpointe Apartments in the clubhouse. (4607 Old Cheney Rd)

Please bring a bag chair for your use, as the complex may not have enough seating for everyone. Two years ago we were able to use the rented tables and chairs from a previous party.

Also, bring your own beverages, along with ice if needed for your drink of choice.

Bring food to share.

We pay a deposit for the room, so we must clean it; so far each time we have used the clubhouse people stayed to clean-up, the more the merrier.

We play a voluntary game of “Dirty Santa”. If you would like to participate, bring a wrapped gift with a value of $25. Please try to stay very near the $25 amount, if possible (keep within 5% of the $25, that is $1.25 for the math impaired). The gift should be something you would give to a friend. Very popular gifts are alcohol, Parrot Head swag, or music CDs. If you are at a loss for Ideas, just call Jimmy P. The game is a great deal of fun, be ready to play to win, but if you don’t … be nice. If you wish to play, bring a gift; it is okay to just watch, but it is great fun to play. Each person who wants to play should bring a gift.

Here is how the game is played:
The first person is chosen by ticket draw, that person’s only choice is to pick the first gift to open.
The next person chosen by ticket may open a new gift, or steal the first gift.
The game progresses by draw, and each person may unwrap or steal.
If an item is stolen from a person, you may then steal a gift (which could set off a series of steals) or unwrap a new gift. (You may not steal a gift just taken from you.)
If an item is stolen 3 times it can not be stolen again. The item is now “golden” and is in the position as owned by the well played Third Stealer.

$10,000

Our first big attempt to raise a large amount for charity worked very well.  We earned enough to grant a wish for a child in the Make-A-Wish program.  Here is a photo of our club meeting where we gave the check to the Make-A-Wish representative, Melissa Davis-Schmidt.

As Parrot Heads, we enjoy a job well done.  Here are two of the best Bartenders in Lincoln.  Congratulations men!

Meeting / Date / Time / Location

Our web page has been showing the wrong location for our meetings and the start time does not indicate the full information:

We meet at Grata which is in Clock Tower Shopping Center at 70th and A Streets.

Our meeting time is at 7:00 pm, but if you can, arrive early (as early as 6:00) you can socialize and have some food and drinks.  FYI we get the meeting room for no extra charge, so be sure to order something as a favor to the owner and his staff.

We meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month, and usually we do not have an official meeting in December.

Phlocking! 1-8-2016

Sorry about the short notice, but the Holidays were long lasting and the New Year started on a Friday!  The usual frivolities will prevail at Tanners from about 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm (or later).

And of course, none of this will be going on:
