LIVING LIke a PIRATE?
The Blossomland Pirates is a local club comprised of people who have joined together for great causes. In addition to being a social club, the Parrot Heads phlock together to perform charitable actions, donate their time and raise money or supplies for local non-profit organizations. Our club was just chartered in June and our members come from a variety of backgrounds, but they all share a number of interests in common. They all are attracted to Jimmy Buffett's music and the laid-back, tropical lifestyle he embodies. More importantly, they have a strong desire to give something back to the community in which they live.
Currently, the club has approximately 40+ members and we are always looking for more. If you have an interest in Jimmy Buffett, tropical rock music, helping your community, and having a phun time, then this is the group for you. Click on the "Application" tab to learn how to become a member.
The club holds meetings and social gatherings on a regular basis. Feel free to drop in on a meeting and check out what we do. Meet with the group on the second Tuesday of the month for either a membership or bizness meeting or at one of our social events (check Calendar for exact time and location). The club meets and holds events at different bars and restaurants in the area where we'd love to have you join us in the spirit of friendship and community service.
Check the Calendar for details and come sail with us!!
