Who all's going to the gardens on that Thursday? I won't be doing the VIP thing but we're just down the road in Pine Mountain and looking forward to it. I know BA is doing the show live there the following morning but does anyone know what Thursday night's events will be exactly?

    I was born in Hamilton, GA roughly 1 mile down the road from Callaway Gardens. Beautiful down there this time of year.

    Nice, I went to Harris County Carver and Harris County High

    U dating yourself bro? 😂😂😂 My 75 year old Mother and my late Father went to Carver.

    It became the middle school when they built the new high school in like 2000 or something.

    You guys are from my neck of the woods - Troup County

  • amjadawgsamjadawgs Posts: 1,303 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Can we all give a shout out to Terry Godwin, Tae Crowder and Dell McGhee! Go DAWGS!

    I went to Hardaway high and ended up buying a home in Meriwether county in Pine Mountain. Finally sold the home two years ago. Make sure you grab some fried chicken at Krispy Fried in downtown Pine Mountain.

  • fitzdawgfitzdawg Posts: 85 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Yeah Tae went there but I was gone before he got there. Had weight training with Jordan Jenkins though when he was a freshman.

  • fitzdawgfitzdawg Posts: 85 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Ha Krispy Fried is a landmark right next to the liquor store.

    Whistling pig is where it's at though

    Best BBQ is the area is a hole in the wall in Columbus, Macon road BBQ.

    It sure is. It is on the corner of Avalon road and Macon road. They have some great Brunswick stew as well

    My Mother who's still living, has a very modest little Brick House in Hamilton that she's currently renting out to a Cousin of mine, but I wouldn't mind 1 day going back down there to live maybe after I retire. As long as I can watch Georgia Football in the fall the EXTREMELY slow pace of living down there would be tolerable. And u can't beat the serenity or some of the scenery.

    We will do our best to take care of our forum friends with this event. Might have a way to reserve several tables for our forum members.

    We have a few ideas in mind to take care of all you good people.

  • RxDawgRxDawg Posts: 973 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I'm in the area as well. If I can get over there I'm planning on it.

  • fitzdawgfitzdawg Posts: 85 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Just can't beat it. But you're right, there's not much else to do

    I'm excited to hear some of y'all are planning on being with us for DawgNation Days of Summer. I think it's going to be a great event. If you're close by, I'd say drive on over to see us. I'm going to be announcing a lot of the details about the night soon. But here's some of what to expect...

    We'll have a special guest joining Jeff and me.

    We'll have a lot of giveaways.

    And it's going to be a great time to relax and talk some football.

    Also, if you can make plans to stay the night -- especially if you're sneaking down from Atlanta like us -- I think it's going to be a lot of fun. The resort is really nice.

    Let me know if you have any questions about it.
