Toronto Maplereefers Parrothead Club


We are the Toronto Maple Reefers ParrotHead Club, the 184th PHiP sanctioned official ParrotHead club in the world!

Founded in the fall of 2003, the Toronto Maple Reefers ParrotHead Club adopted the mandate of ParrotHead clubs worldwide: "party with a purpose".
Boasting over 180 active members, the club regularly holds social events to benefit local charities, primarily the Toronto Children's Breakfast Club. The TCBC provides thousands of breakfasts and lunches every year in the GTA to kids who would might no otherwise get a good start to the day.

Our members themselves are a diverse cross section of ages and occupations from mainly Southern & Central Ontario with one thing in common-a love of the tropical lifestyle embodied by Jimmy Buffett. We are collectively aware of our limited number of trips around the sun, and we are determined to squeeze as much phun in as possible, trying to leave it all a little better than we found it, playing as diligently as we work.
What we lack in latitude around here, we make up for in attitude! There’s something about being harboured in a place that sees tropical temperatures only three months a year that produces particularly enthusiastic Parrot Heads! Go phigure!

So grab a boat drink(s), make yourself comfortable, and take a look around our little piece of Margaritaville. There are lots of photos, drink recipes, links, stories that bear repeating, and tales from late last night. And, if you think you might be one of our lost phlock of northern parrots, please contact us about membership.


 

UP NEXT: Pool Party - July 29

Phineas Recommends......

MARGARITAVILLE AT THE BALLPARK

FRIDAY, JULY 6 at 7:00

The Westjet Flight Deck at the Rogers Centre will be hosting “Margaritaville at the Ballpark” on Friday, July 6th. The Toronto Blue Jays are playing the NY Yankees that night!

The Westjet Flight Deck is open to anyone who has a ticket for the game, regardless of where you're sitting. Entry to Flight Deck is on a first come, first served basis. The Flight Deck opens when the Rogers Centre opens.

For those Parrotheads who are interested in attending, here's what to do:

  • On February 8th, single game tickets go on sale at 10 am
  • Purchase the cheapest seat in the 500 level
  • Get to the Rogers Centre as early as possible on July 6th and head to the Westjet Flight Deck
  • Remember, it’s the Yankees in town, so this game will sell out quickly
  • Good Luck and Phins Up!

5TH ANNUAL BUFFETT TRIBUTE IN NOTL IN JAN 2016!!

Started by Steve Goldberger in Sample Title Nov 3, 2015.

We are not Parrot Heads because we are Jimmy Buffett fans

We are Parrot Heads because…..

We love the ocean

We love the planet

We love to have fun.

 

We are Parrot Heads because…..

We are not afraid to be silly

We are not afraid to act foolish

We are not afraid of love.

 

We are Parrot Heads because…..

We like scantily clad members of our favorite sex

We like playing in the sun with those same members

We like singing songs that say all these things.

 

We are Parrot Heads because…..

We believe the best things in life cannot be bought

We believe sharing the best things makes them better

We believe in the innate goodness in all of us.

 

We are Parrot Heads because…..

We know shared joy is increased

We know shared pain is lessened

We know a good friend has value beyond measure.

 

It just so happens, that Jimmy Buffett sings about all these things

So we are not Parrot Heads because we are Jimmy Buffett fans,

We are Jimmy Buffett fans because we are Parrot Heads.

 

 Thanks to the Cincinnati Parrothead Club
