Errol Flynn Xmas Ball in Jamaica 2011!

19 Nov

ERROL FLYNN CHRISTMAS BALL NEWS

IT’S JUST A MONTH AWAY!

Want
to miss your chance to attend the best holiday bash in Jamaica?  Then keep
procrastinating about getting your tickets for the Errol Flynn Christmas Ball
Dec. 17 in Port Antonio.  Not only will you be enjoying a fabulous holiday
season party and dance, you’ll also be helping someone less fortunate at the
same time.  The Ball benefits the Homeless Shelter and Rehabilitation
Centre in Portland.  Tickets are $3,000.00 in advance and $3,500.00 at the
door.  Stewarts Automotive Group in Kingston is your outlet in that
area.  See them at 5 Orchard Road or call 876-968-0930.  In Port Antonio,
get tickets at the Errol Flynn Marina, 876-715-6044.

‘FAB FIVE’: GETTING YOUNGER EVERY DAY!

For
those who wonder how Fab 5 has thrived for more than four decades, Frankie
Campbell, manager and bassist for the group cites several reasons. 
“We are always looking to keep in touch with musical trends.  We may
not be big fans of today's dancehall music, but every year, there are great
songs and we try to make sure that we perform these songs and keep ourselves relevant
to the younger generation.  “At the same time, we periodically infuse
new and younger talent into the band so that we maintain our energy and
enthusiasm. The other thing is we like what we do and treat it like a job that
we are privileged to have, rather than some burden forced on us. Fab 5, with
the backing of artistes on shows and the new songs we put into our bandstand
catalogue, must be one of the most rehearsed bands in the world. We are
constantly in rehearsal.”

BUFFET DINNER SERVICE AVAILABLE

A
full buffet service will be available at Norma’s Beach Bar and Grille
from  6:30 p .m. until 10 p.m for those wanting something more than finger
food and other snacks.  Norma’s is located immediately adjacent to the Ken
Wright Pier where the Errol Flynn Christmas Ball is being held. Buffet price is
$1,000.00 JAD for single entrée, $1200 for double entrée.

OUR HONORARY CHAIRPERSON

We
couldn’t be more pleased than to have Mrs. Diana Stewart as the honorary
chairperson of the Errol Flynn Christmas Ball.  Mrs. Stewart did yeoman
service for the balls held in 2009 and 2010 and is now a most appreciated
advisor to your steering committee.

SPONSOR NUMBERS GROWING

 

Our
number of sponsors for the Errol Flynn Christmas Ball is growing daily. 
If you have a product or service you would like to present to some of Jamaica’s
most influential people, the Ball presents an outstanding opportunity. 
Contact Dale Westin at 876-477-6914 for details.

FREE ADMISSION TO FRENCHMAN’S COVE BEACH

An
added bonus for participating in the Errol Flynn Christmas Ball is that your
wristband or ticket for the evening will get you free admission to the
fantastic Frenchman’s Cove Beach the following morning, Sunday, Dec. 18,
compliments of Cove Manager Frank Lawrence.  If you haven’t visited their
beach, you have missed one of the most photographed, picturesque, beaches in
the world, bar none.

CHECK OUT  OUR FACEBOOK PAGE:

If
you’re into social networking, please check out our Facebook page: “Errol Flynn
Christmas Benefit Ball”, for complete details on our planned evening Dec. 17 in
Port Antonio.  You will discover (and continue to discover) a variety of
facts about Errol Flynn, his wife and Ball patron, Patrice Wymore Flynn, and
the handsome guy that’s carrying on the famous Flynn moniker:  grandson
Luke Flynn.  Yes, Luke will be there at the ball; likely being mistaken
for his legendary grandfather.

YES, YOU CAN USE PLASTI C AT THE BALL!

VISA,
Masterercard and American Express cards will be accepted for payment at the
ball.  This service is provided by First Caribbean Bank, a sponsor of the
event.

WILL ERROL FLYNN’S ‘ZACA’ BE THERE?…WELL ALMOST!

We
are pleased to note the 136 foot Barquentine tall ship,  “Corwith Cramer”
will be berthed at the end of the Ken Wright Pier on the night of the Errol
Flynn Christmas Ball.  She’s a spectacular sight under full sail and
operates as a sail training ship in the Caribbean.  Errol Flynn’s Zaca, at
118 feet, was a gaff-rigged schooner.  Zaca is still seen in the
Mediterranean where it has been fully restored to its former glory.

My good friend Author & Mixed Media Artist Cindy Adkins has produced a Suede Cigar Box dedicated to Errol Flynn. She made this as a surprise to show me more of her talents – which are many! I was interviewed for one of her newest Amazon Kindle books called Blogging: It's a Man Thing, a companion to her book Blogging: It's a “Woman Thing” – see more images of this great looking piece on her Whimsical Musings Magazine site…

Just scroll down the page when you get there!

Thanks, Cindy!

13 Nov
This comment was left in regards to our member John's excellent series about Jamaica and the Titchfield Hotel. I contacted the commenter and suggested we move this to the Promo Section since for once, a comment with a link in it to a product is of interest to us!

I just wanted to let anyone who's interested
know that as of today, Nov 13, 2011, I'm selling a brochure for Errol
Flynn's Titchfield hotel (from what I believe is the 1950s) on ebay.
The link is bit.ly/rXhPuU… I apologize if you consider this spam, but I thank you for the article
as it helped give me historical background for the brochure.

the music of the fabulous “Fab Five” setting the tone for the evening of

having a great time for ourselves while helping to provide the final costs of
building the women’s dormitory for the Portland Homeless Shelter and
Rehabilitation Centre.

 THE
FABULOUS ‘FAB FIVE’:

Jamaica’s “most danceable” band by many in the know, the “Fab Five” speaks for
itself at the end of an evening – “The dance floor has remained full for the
entire evening.”

 COCKTAILS
FROM 7:30P.M.

The
evening will open with a cocktail hour in the Ken Wright terminal building from
7:30 The keyboard stylings of Peter Stoddart will be the featured cocktail hour

PATRONS FOR THE EVENING:

SPONSORS:

The
Christmas Ball is being sponsored again this year by the Portland Chamber of

Hearts”

THIRD
ANNUAL BALL:

The
Errol Flynn Ball is the annual signature event of the marina bearing his
name.  Launched in 2009 on the 100th
anniversary of Flynn’s birth in 1909, the principal goal each year is to
benefit a worthy Portland charity

SOMETHING
NEW THIS YEAR:

Errol
Flynn was noted for his pencil thin mustache which was actually immortalized in
the Jimmy Buffet song a few years ago. 
Men attending the ball are encouraged to grow a similar mustache and
take home a prize for the one most closely resembling Flynn’s.  It is noted that most men can grow one in
about a week to 10 days.

you’ve got two left feet.  Not a
problem!  We even have free dance

substantial cross section of Jamaica’s most influential citizens.  A limited number of 10×10 stands are

In the Wake of the Zaca

11 Nov

I believe there have been a couple of video segments of the Zaca posted, but I hadn't seen this one, which is a very nice piece of Zaca history with clips of Errol (which many of us have seen before).

Here's the video. It's about 26 minutes.

Unfortunately the creator of the video does not allow embedding it.
