Davidson County UT Alumni Chapter presents Kickoff Cocktail with GoVols247 -- Thursday, August 23, 2012 -- Nashville, TN
Your team. All the time.
Hope to see a ton of you out there. There is a space issue, so this event will be capped at a certain number of people and the folks at the Alumni Association tell me they expect it to "sell out."
Thanks for the promo Kevin. We're really excited about this event, the chance for people to meet Wes and Ryan in person, the chance for Vol fans to meet other Vol fans, as well as for folks to learn more about this site and the local Alumni Chapter.
I hope a bunch of folks from here will show, and bring your friends, so we can whip everyone into a frenzy just 8 days before the opening game!!!
If you guys noticed the post above, that is another one of your fellow subscribers that set up the event! Looking forward to meeting many of you in person, and shaking your hands and telling you a heart-felt "Thank you" in person for supporting the site.
Me thinks I'll be going to this.
See what you hit; hit what you see.
Me hopes you and a few hundred of your closest friends. In all seriousness, Wes and Ryan are driving over to take part in this event, and it will be one of the few times they'll be able to be in the Midstate together. Should be a fun night.
Ill be there kevin do we just pay at the door or what?
plan on attending myself as it should be alot of fun
I think you can do that if it isn't sold out, but if you click on the link in my post and/or the one attached to the post you can pay for and print you ticket now so you can breeze right in the door and get a good spot.
Will be good to meet you, shoeless. Tell your friends. Make it a party!
already called a couple of them and we are planning on being there ; GOT to finally get my cousin to show up over there and to join this site ...HUGE UT fan
Bring em. If your little show doesn't convince him, I'll convince em.
Kevin, any chance you guys could do the same for Chattanooga? Willing to bet ya'll would get a pretty nice reception down here too, and I bet we have plenty of UT alums down here too!
Will Wes be there with eye patch?
Glad to hear that shoeless - the more the merrier! We had a Signing Day event there in February and had 200+ in attendance, so we're hoping for the same next week. And why wouldn't there be more with the Experts from 247 coming out to share the inside scoop?
Tell your friends and come on out for a great time with fellow Vol fans!!!!
BTW, as Kevin said, you can certainly pay at the door but it would really help if you pre-register so you don't have to wait in line to register and you can come right on in.
Might be able to work something out with the Alumni Association down there. Worth looking into for sure.
My guess is that can be arranged.
I would be there in a heartbeat, but I will be in Bristol for the race!! Ughh!!
Sounds like this will be fun. I'll try to attend.
Leave Friday morning. You can start the party Thursday night with us and then roll to Upper East Tennessee!
Don't forget what I told you about the Alumni Association also being at Stats with us on Gameday at the Dome. You guys could work the room there as well.
I believe that event is just for UT Young Alumni — just a small portion of the alumni association — but, yes, there's a chance we'll be there at some point.
For what it's worth, I recently heard about another group that's planning to be at Stats that day. Has anyone looked into the group here from the board shifting its meeting location to the nearby place where Swain and Rucker will be broadcasting that day? There'd probably be a lot more space for everyone to meet there, and it sounds like a pretty cool place where everyone still could grab a drink. I believe it's called Castleberry Inn.
