NEXT HAPPY HOUR
We are looking at a couple of new places with great patios for our next happy hour. Watch this page and our Club Facebook page for details.
The Desert Sharks gather once a month, on the second Wednesday of every month from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (or thereabouts).
Join us for good food, good drinks, good friends, and great music! At each Happy Hour, members and guests meet and greet, are informed of any club announcements, and participate in a 50/50 raffle!
Membership applications are available at each Happy Hour, as well as at the link to the left.

12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Catalina State Park
Update on Club Picnic:
Here is more information on our upcoming picnic at Catalina State Park, 11570 N Oracle Road at the Gila Monster Ramada. You can get a map at the gate. The picnic is 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 17th.
The club is taking care of the per car admission fee. Tell the Park Ranger at the gate you are with the Desert Sharks. Carpooling would be good, especially for those on the eastside.
Please bring your own food, beverages (alcohol is allowed) and a dish to share, if you like. There are well used BBQ grills, so bring charcoal and tools and maybe some tin foil. Our ramada has picnic tables and is near the restroom. Donn did a great job of finding us a good location.
If you have horseshoes, beanbag games or other games, please bring them along. You may want to bring your own chairs, also, so we can social distance and be comfortable. The picnic tables are concrete.
Please RSVP to Donn Mouw at [email protected] As I mentioned, we have plenty of room but it would be nice to have a head count.
Dori is hosting a small raffle, just for fun and because she has a year's worth of "stuff" in her closet.
Any questions, email Donn.

This year will mark the 30th Anniversary of Meeting of the Minds. This is going to be an epic event, especially since 2020 was cancelled.
Registration for Meeting of the Minds 2021 commences on 1-21-21 at 11:07 am Eastern Time.
It hasn't always been in Key West but it found a home there and I can tell you from experience that it is awesome. It should certainly be on the Parrot Head Bucket List. Just search Parrot Heads in Paradise (www.phip.com) to learn all about our parent organization and MOTM.
