REMINDER: For those who have voluntarily submitted or plan to submit proof of vaccination, the COVID testing requirement is waived.

PCR timing adjustments
Based on concerns raised by some of you regarding the difficulty of timing your tests with your travel and arrival plans, we have made the following adjustments and clarifications to the PCR covid testing protocol:

• For those planning to screen by submitting negative PCR Covid19 test results and arriving in Key West by air or checking into accommodations October 30th or later, the 72 hours may be counted back from your time of flight arrival or hotel check-in so that you do not have to spend your time in Key West arranging for tests

• Anyone facing specific challenges regarding the timing of PCR tests or results due to timing of travel or due to recent COVID infection and recovery may request accommodations by emailing here.

• For local testing in Key West, here is a link to testing sites and facilities listed by the Monroe County Health Department. PHIP has not independently contacted these facilities to determine availability or cost of testing.

Rapid Tests at Casa Marina and Pit Stops Accepted for MOTM21 COVID Screening

Thank you for your patience while we worked out the details of an important partnership to offer convenient antigen testing. We realize this information is coming late but hope that it will provide solutions for those encountering obstacles in COVID testing.

Antigen rapid tests are acceptable for screening as long as they are administered and documented by a CLIA-certified medical professional. While we continue to strongly encourage attendees to voluntarily provide proof of vaccination or to obtain a PCR test, we understand this will not be possible for all attendees.

PHIP has partnered with third party health professionals On Site Testing and My Health US to offer convenient and professional antigen testing at Casa Marina and at the two "Pit Stop" locations in Islamorada. These are Parrot Head friendly organizations who are offering this testing at below market prices for MOTM, and they will communicate the results directly to MOTM registration personnel through a HIPPA-compliant electronic platform which will result in your being pre-screened for MOTM registration.

Pit stop testing will be offered at Islamorada Pit Stops on Tuesday November 2 and Wednesday November 3 between 1pm and 6pm. This is a walk-up service with no appointment necessary. Cost is $59.95

On Site Testing will offer rapid antigen tests at Casa Marina during registration hours on Thursday and Friday November 4 and 5 for $59.95. Tests will also be offered at Casa Marina on Wednesday from Noon until 8 pm for pre-screening at the discounted rate of $49.95. Appointments are not required but may be made here.

In addition to providing tests required for screening, our partners will offer over-the-counter self-test kits for sale for anyone experiencing symptoms during the event or wishing to self test privately before leaving Key West or after arriving home to make sure that next hug of the grandchildren is a safe one. These home tests have been hard to find of late and may be limited in quantity depending on supply chain and shipping challenges.

Neither PHIP nor any individual member of the Board or MOTM team has a financial stake in any of the partner companies, and PHIP does not profit from this partnership or the services offered.

On Site Registration for PHiP's Meeting of the Minds 2021

(On-Site Registration will require a negative Covid test or proof of vaccination. Refer to Covid policy under FAQ.)

Hello everyone! Registration for PHiP's Meeting of the Minds 2021 is OPEN as of January 21st! Soon we will be in KEY WEST for an awesome event! I want to tell you that registration was very good this year but we are not at a sell-out which means ON SITE REGISTRATION IN KEY WEST WILL OPEN ON AT 9:00 AM ON THURSDAY MORNING NOVEMBER 4th IN THE CASA BALLROOM!
We are already getting tons of email about Parrot Heads missing regular registration for various reasons and new people wanting to come to PHiP's Meeting of the Minds this year! Well, we do not want to leave YOU out and we always try to do what we can to help if possible.
First you MUST be a Parrot Head Club member to attend MOTM. You know we verify EVERY club member who attends every year. This is an IRS requirement.
When we are in Key West we DO NOT have the ability to verify your membership. Come to the registration area and fill out the special "Meeting of the Minds 2021 On-Site Registration / Virtual Club Membership form". Please DO NOT join the Virtual Club before showing up to register on-site as we will not be able to confirm your membership in Key West at the event.
We will have forms for you...Fill out the registration form in Key West, the registration cost is $97.77, the Virtual Club membership cost is $30.00, and the late fee is $30.00.

You will not get an event t-shirt or gift bag when you on-site register. Remember we had to order that stuff in mid-September and you missed the deadline. Late Registration? $30.00 fee. Why? Because we want you to register before the deadline so we can prepare everything for you in advance. We don't want you to register late…this is only to help people who have a situation that did not allow a regular registration during the year.
So, the cost to attend MOTM via late registration is $157.77 on-site. You will walk away with a personalized credential and wristband that allows you to attend all events at the Casa Marina!!

Remember there is no event shirt or gift bag with on-site registration but you are then ready to join your PHriends and see the show!!
If you want to register on site be sure to show up during regular registration hours as there are NO exceptions to these hours. We have an awesome registration crew that are all-volunteer and they need to enjoy MOTM too! On-site registration is during the normal registration hours of Thursday 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, Friday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and Saturday from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Remember you will be registering up front at the Casa Marina in the ballroom to the left of the main lobby door. No one will be able to enter the Casa Marina without a credential and wristband during PHiP's MOTM when registration starts on Thursday.
$157.77 cash or credit card will be accepted for registration on-site during the hours listed above.
Once again, after you register you will have everything you need to attend the entire event, enjoy discounts at Margaritaville Key West, and enjoy a membership in the Virtual Parrot Head Club for the balance of 2021.

There are no exceptions to this process as this is just to help folks who need to use this method of registration. See you in Key West!
