The inaugural Gator Country Caravan began last Friday at Gator Landing in East Palatka. We would like to thank everyone for coming out and making it a success. It was great to see so many old and new faces. Those that attended got to hear the news about Dorian Monroe directly from Hollywood Bob before it hit the information superhighway. A special thanks goes out to Wally Hough and Frank Oliver for hosting the event.
We now hit the road again for our second stop in the River city of Jacksonville at Sneakers Sports Bar on July 16th (click here for more details).
The entire Gator Country crew will be on hand to offer their insights and the Gator Country Store will be giving away either a free Gator Country T-shirt or Magazine to all who attend!
And we are just getting started. Keep an eye on the message boards, but after Jacksonville we will be making a special stop on July 18th at Ground Zero – Gainesville, to coincide with Friday Night Lights!
Then it’s off to Birmingham, AL on July 24th during SEC Media Days at a yet to be named location. Heading south, the next stop will be at the beautiful Emerald Grande at Harbor Walk in Destin, FL on Saturday July 26th. (emeraldgrande.com) Other stops are being planned for Tampa on July 29th and Orlando July 30th.
We are also looking to make stops in Ocala, Lakeland, Daytona, and West Palm Beach. If anyone would like to get involved in hosting these sites, please e-mail me at
