1-2-3 SOCIAL! Reflection --   June '15

What you were there for, what you might not have paid attention to,
 or what you wished you would have been there for
(and didn't your English teacher tell you to NEVER end a phrase with a preposition?!?!??!)

June 24, 2015, Legend’s, Rock Island... 63 QCPHers in attendance

Charity Component: Project NOW fan drive. Parrotheads donated 33 fans to Project Now. Which prompted Social Director Mike Koester to remark, “Those must be Cubs fans because there aren’t that many Cardinals fans.” To which Andy Anderson quipped, “So that means they won’t work in September.” Line of the night.

New members: We have a new member, but a very familiar member. Gina Calsyn of Rock Island is the one who has made the cookies for the golf outing afterparty for the past two years! Welcome Gina! 1-2-3 Social!!

50/50: $360 total, $180 to winner Lisa Crandall and $180 to her charity of choice, Project NOW, which is the recipient of this month’s charitable items.
Holly Brosnan won the Legends T-shirt from the name badge drawing. Remember to always bring your name badge to a Social!

                                 News you need now
The bus for the QCPH Cubs-Cards trip to Busch Stadium will leave the Motel 6 parking lot (near the airport) at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Those on the sold-out bus should be in St. Louis in time to enjoy Ballpark Village before the 6:15 p.m. June 27 game. The Cardinals and the Cubs have 2 of the 3 best records in the National League and 2 of the 5 best records in all of Major League Baseball.
                                         News that was
Havana Daydreamin’ 2015 is now in the books, with a check presentation of $21,000 to USO Illinois. Co-chairmen Marc Nesseler and Tina Sims presented the check to USO Illinois’ Jackie Inman at the June Social.

And so, eyes turn to HDD 2016! As they were a year ago, tickets hopefully will go on sale on July 1 at the club web site, qcph.com. This will be for reserved tables ($240) as well as individual tickets ($25). Remember, reserved tables sold out for this past year’s event in just THREE MONTHS.

And while on the topic of HDD, there will be a charity meeting on July 7 that will go through charity requests. It is hoped that at that meeting the list will be pared to 2 or 3 that will make presentations. Also yet to be announced is the entertainment, but we are very very very close to doing that.

                                       News that will be
John Deere Classic parking volunteer opportunities are here. There are still openings for either shift (6-11 a.m. or 11 a.m.-3 p.m.) on Friday, July 10, the afternoon shift on Saturday, July 11; and the morning shift on Sunday, July 12. Please consider helping out and volunteering a few hours to help raise money for QCPH charities! Plus, those volunteering receive a free anyday pass to the John Deere Classic! Email Anke at ankejean@hotmail.com to reserve a spot.

Today is the Kelly McGuire house concert at Fairfax, Iowa, hosted by the Isle of Iowa Club. Go to the Isle of Iowa web site for details. Also mark your calendars for Oct. 3 for the Isle of Iowa’s big fundraiser, Island Fever Phlocking.

Robert Meyer has free tickets to the July 1 River Bandits game, sponsored by the Quad City Homebuilders Association.

Saturday, Oct. 24, has been earmarked as a QCPH Trivia Night that will help cover HDD expenses. Mark your calendars and look for details within the next couple of months.

Saturday, Dec. 5, is our own “house” concert, with the Southern Drawl Band returning to play at the Plumbers & Pipefitters hall in Rock Island, hosted by several QCPH parrotheads. Again, be on the lookout for details.

                              UPCOMING SOCIAL
* Wednesday, July 22 – This one has been moved up a week because of the July 29 Beach Boys concert at the iWireless Center. It will be the last Social arranged by outgoing Social Director Mike Koester, the only social director the QCPH has known until Brian Wilson takes over in August. The charity component will be school supplies.
And speaking of the Beach Boys concert, Mike has arranged a special ticket deal for QC parrotheads. Contact Mike at mkoe50@aol.com for $10 off the $39.50 ticket (so $29.50 if you need help with the math), sitting in Section 113, row 6 on up. There also will be QCPH tailgating at the iWi parking lot beginning at about 2 p.m. on the 29th.
