Tall Paul and Quincy first joined forces years ago during the creation of the band "St. Somewhere."

    Following Ramajay will be the BOAT DRUNKS, with their 10th appearance at HDD! The Boat Drunks will be performing at Street Fest less than two months before HDD and will have their new CD available.

    And there's MORE ... HDD will have Wisconsin trop rocker Jim Hoehn perform at the PreParty, which this year will be IN THE SAME BUILDING AS HDD ... the River Center! No more walking a couple of blocks in freezing temperatures! Jim will be performing from 2 to 5 on Feb. 1, with Tall Paul and Quincy filling the first hour from 1 to 2 p.m.

    Yes, HDD is gearing back toward its sellout days -- and to ensure that, get this (!) your HDD fun has never been less expensive. That's right, tickets for HDD AND THE PREPARTY will be a combined $25!!! (That's a saving of $10 over the past few years.) Or, if you can't make the PreParty, an HDD ticket alone costs $20 before the day of the event, the same as it has been.
    The Culinary Kids, the HDD charity from the 2013 Golf Outing, will be serving at the PreParty. That menu will come at a later date.

    Tickets can be purchased NOW at the QCPH web site -- qcph.com. (Go to Events.) Or, tickets also will be available at Club Socials. Take this advice -- get your tickets early because you're not going to want to miss the 10TH HDD!!!!!

    Let me start off by saying congratulations to all of our newly elected board members, and welcome back Marc and Mike. Second, I want to thank Jan for a wonderful job as president, and to Jeanie for being the secretary. I know taking notes in the business meetings can sometimes be hectic but you did do a very good job Jeanie, thank you again. Jan, I know it sometimes felt overwhelming at times but you did a fantastic job and I hope I can do as good as job as you did in the coming months and years. Thank you again. It is a goal of mine to help make this club even stronger, better, and with more members than in the years past. We all want to have the best parrot head club in the U.S. and with the board, the administration members, and with members like YOU we can make this a reality and have fun doing it as well. I look forward to thechallenges and rewards of being president of such a wonderful club that does great things for those in need.
     
    Phins Up,
     
    Willy Fink
