Our Frequently Asked Questions

Here's What We Commonly Get Asked...

  • Where did the phun stuff (fun stuff) move to?
  • Do I have to be a resident of the Tri-State area to join the Dubuque Phlockers?
    • No. The Dubuque Phlockers is an open membership organization and you do not need to live in the Tri-State area of Iowa, Wisconsin, or Illinois to become a member. Visit our membership area here!
  • What does the "Ph" stand for in Dubuque Phlockers?
    • Simply put, "Ph" stands for Parrot Head. Parrot Heads are fanatical fans (phanatical phans) who phlock to see Jimmy Buffett in concert and go to great lengths to show their love of margaritas, cheeseburgers, fins (err, phins) and phun.
  • What was the motivation behind naming the group the Dubuque Phlockers?
    • Originally, the group was on its way to being called the Dubuque Area Parrot Head Club but that was simply too much to say (that, and we were being accused of being a run-on sentence). Another name candidate was the Tri-State Phlockers. After musing over some beverages of choice, we wanted something short and something that would also affiliate us to the "Center of Activity" for our organization (Dubuque). Being the simplistic group we are, we decided to adopt the best of both names. The result was the Dubuque Phlockers.
  • How many meetings do I have to attend to be a "member in good standing"?
    • 0 (as in zero). The Dubuque Phlockers is a completely volunteer organization. We realize different people contribute in different ways. Although we'd love to have people join us while we "party with a purpose," attendance is not required.
