Welcome to the Pat Dobie Club
…a club for people named Pat Dobie.
The Pat Dobie Club was founded after I met another person named Pat Dobie (E. Pat Dobie, in fact). Since it was my idea, I named myself the Original Pat Dobie, known as the OPD.
During its heydey of 2005 – 2010 the Pat Dobie Club had almost 40 members around the world. Most were in the category of “Associate Member,” since only people named Pat Dobie qualify for full membership.
During that period we had a club song, a uniform, a bookmark, and a rotating series of “signature” beverages. Our club dictionary and encyclopedia were consulted regularly by thought leaders seeking stringently researched and well-written definitions of concepts crucial to their continued thought-leadership.
Club activities were temporarily suspended from 2013-2021.
The Pat Dobie Club will resume operations in 2023. Stay tuned for further developments!
