St Patty's Day Extravaganza

Emerald Island Resort Shamrock

March 17th, 2007

Thanks to our new concierge provider, Emerald Island hosted its first St Patrick's Day event. A DJ played music, kids played on the bouncy castle (Disney themed, of course!)' food and drink was available and a great time was had by all. American Idol better watch out though, the Emerald Island Karaoke Contest was a big hit, with a grand prize of dinner for two at Arabian Nights. Other prizes including Wet N Wild Tickets, Gas Cards were up for grabs too.

Here are some comments from people that attended the event.

"...the St. Patrick’s Day party was a huge success.

A very good DJ supplied the music and many guests ages 10 to 60 participated in the Karaoke contest. Donated tickets to the Arabian Nights and Wet & Wild were given to winners.

There were snow cones, popcorn, Pepsi, hot dogs, and chips for the guests. A Pepsi-sponsored sign that read “Tiki Bar Coming Soon” was proudly waving. A huge inflated castle awaited the younger set to bounce the night away.

Many guests left early because of the near record-setting low temperatures, but new guests kept arriving to keep the SRO crowd of about 70 – 75 guests consistent throughout the evening. Jackets and hoods soon replaced the traditional Irish green to combat the chilling temperatures. Many guests were from the villas, as they came early walked back to the villas, and returned with warmer clothing.

The concierge staff were all professionally attired in black pants, white shirts, black tie and green vests—perfect garb for the evening.

Congratulations to the entire concierge staff for the success of this event.

"Good night by all that attended. I took my 8 yr old, then had to leave earlier than anticipated due to tiredness! She loved to dance to the singing. Congrats to Gwen for a job well done.
Seriously, a good night, with a promise of more to come.

"Have also returned for the St Patrick's night party at the club house. Many thanks to Gwen & her team for laying on a great night. The kids were having a good time dancing & taking part in the Karaoke contest, the hot coffee that was supplied went down a treat, looking forward to other theme nights at the tiki bar. Once again ,Well Done" Victoria
