CAPTAIN YOGI'S USELESS
BUT IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Hello Everybody!
I hope everyone had a great Holiday! As always, we probably ate too much, fought with our families, ate too much, watched football, ate too much, are you sensing a theme here? Now that the holiday season is past us, it's time to relax and try and stay phreaking' warm!
 
A lot of goings happening this spring! First up is our 20th-anniversary party at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in West York. The entertainment will be, may I say EPIC with Tropical Soul, a chance to see a lot of old Phriends you haven't seen in a while, drinks and food. The PHIP Mid Atlantic Leaders meeting will also be happening the same day, so we should see a lot of Pholks from all over the Mid-Atlantic region. And don't forget your swimmies, they have a great HEATED indoor pool. There will also be special room rates for the Parrott Heads at the hotel, which surround the indoor courtyard.
 
Next up, ROAD TRIP!! We are putting a trip together to see Escape to Margaritaville on Broadway in the BIG CITY! Depending on the interest will be the mode of transportation we will use. The cost of the tickets will be $99 plus any transportation. The tentative date will be Saturday, April 14 th for a matinee and perhaps a bite to eat and then head back. Please let myself or one of the Board members know if you are interested.
 
And let’s not forget the 4 th Annual Jakie Mini Golf Tournament in August. The ladies are already working hard to put it together. And there is a rumor of the 2 nd Annual PHIAP Corn Hole Tournament in early June this year. More information to follow on both!
 
Sounds like a busy year, don’t it? Well, there will be plenty of other events coming; including the trash clean up and Ronald McDonald House. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting and looking forward to another great year with my PHIAP Peeps!
 
Pools Open! Frozen, but open!

BUFFET NEWS!!!!
SAN DIEGO — Jimmy Buffett knows all about hurricanes and sailing, so it’s appropriate that the singer-songwriter has been enlisted to help promote a regatta on the Caribbean island of St. Barts and show that life is returning to normal after a direct hit from Hurricane Irma in September.

Buffett will serve as U.S. ambassador for the Les Voiles de Saint-Barth, April 8 to 14, a mainstay on the Caribbean yacht racing circuit.

“I sailed into the harbor in 1978 and it’s always kind of been my second Caribbean home, after Florida,”   Buffett said by phone from New York, where he’s getting ready for the Broadway premiere of his musical,  “Escape to Margaritaville.”   “My kids all kind of grew up down there. I have a fond attachment from those early days. I’ve seen it in a lot of phases and I think it’s one of the most unique spots on the planet.”

Buffett grew up on the Gulf Coast and said he was  “a child of hurricanes.”   Besides writing songs such as   “Son of a Son of a Sailor,”   “One Particular Harbor”   and   “A Pirate Looks at Forty,”   he also wrote  “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season.”

Buffett owns a villa on St. Barts that was undamaged by the storm. He said he’s impressed with how the island residents are bouncing back and he’s eager to help. “They’re pretty resilient people there. They always have been,”   he said.  “They did an amazing job, I thought, in getting the place in any way presentable.”

Buffett played a free concert on the main dock in Gustavia on Dec. 27 to give locals a break from the recovery work and attract visitors to the island.
“People know St. Barts as a ritzy place, but what makes it so unique is the people in the service industry, the working people on the island,”   he said. “They don’t live in mansions on the hill. They live in houses that took the brunt of storm. Everyone has worked together to get back to normal.

“It was a relief for those people to have a night out. We couldn’t do a full show but we did whatever we could. The monitors went out on the second song but I didn’t let anyone know. I’ve done this before.”
Buffett held the honorary ambassador position for Les Voiles — it means  “the sails”   in French — in 2011.

Buffett will be onsite for the regatta but won’t be sailing and isn’t scheduled to play a concert. But he has done impromptu sets at local bars.
“It’s been known to happen,”   he said, adding:  “It’s always fun. It’s always been a sailing community. Sailors sing, sailors sing in bars and all the accouterments that go along with it are there.”

Buffett’s love affair with St. Barts began when he was moving a boat to the Caribbean.  “I had a romantic infatuation about an old movie, and there’s some French culture in my family, so it kind of resonated with me. I wanted to go visit a French island. There was no internet then. I read about it in a sailing magazine. It was the coolest place we saw.”
“Escape to Margarita-ville,”  taking its name from Buffett’s classic hit,  “Margaritaville,”   begins previews on Feb. 16 at New York’s Marquis Theatre.

The Cuban Affair
by Nelson DeMille


Daniel Graham MacCormick—Mac for short—seems to have a pretty good life. At age thirty-five he’s living in Key West, owner of a forty-two-foot charter fishing boat,  The Maine . Mac served five years in the Army as an infantry officer with two tours in Afghanistan. He returned with the Silver Star, two Purple Hearts, scars that don’t tan, and a boat with a big bank loan. Truth be told, Mac’s finances are more than a little shaky.


One day, Mac is sitting in the famous Green Parrot Bar in Key West, contemplating his life, and waiting for Carlos, a hotshot Miami lawyer heavily involved with anti-Castro groups. Carlos wants to hire Mac and  The Maine  for a ten-day fishing tournament to Cuba at the standard rate, but Mac suspects there is more to this and turns it down. The price then goes up to two million dollars, and Mac agrees to hear the deal, and meet Carlos’s clients—a beautiful Cuban-American woman named Sara Ortega, and a mysterious older Cuban exile, Eduardo Valazquez.

And then......
