Join the ultimate Gator Blast in Arizona!

Mark it on your calendar. January 7th, Scottsdale, Arizona. The Swamp II Restaurant will be THE PLACE to be if you are a Florida Gator. Immediately following the gigantic Florida pep rally in Old Town, you can walk a few yards over to The Swamp II for the Gator Gathering for an evening like no other to get you ready for the big showdown between Florida and Ohio State Monday night.

UPDATE: Folks, We’re fast approaching 600+ tickets sold, which means we’ll be filling up soon. So if you’re at all interested in joining us at our insanely awesome Gator Country Gathering, get your tickets NOW!


We will just check your name off at the door, so there’s no need to mail tickets, etc.

We do accept walk-ups, but there’s only a limited amount available. If you can, if at all possible, order tickets online so as to secure your spots and make it much easier in terms of organizing things for us.

This promises to be a lot of fun, so don’t miss out! We should have a few Gator Greats showing up – we can’t name names because they’re still working out their travel plans. At the very least, the greatest Gator Basketball player will be there – Neal Walk. Hopefully we’ll have an update on the others later.

It all starts at 8 p.m. right after the pep rally ends. All the yelling and screaming for the Gators will probably make you hungry so we’ve got you covered with a great buffet that includes complimentary soda/tea/coffee along with a cash bar for those who wish to partake of something a bit stronger.

Additionally, we’ll have David Stirt, author of “Saturdays in the Swamp,” and Buddy Martin, author of “The Boys from Old Florida,” signing books and you’ll have a chance to mingle with some ex-Gator greats who will bring their Sharpies so they can sign autographs. We’ll be giving you a list later on this week so you can bring photos, jerseys and books for autographs by some of your favorite ex-Gators!

We’ve got one surprise guest that will be offering insight from a most unique point of view and then the Gator Country staff (Franz Beard, Hollywood Bob Redman, Mark McLeod) will give you all the inside dope from a week of Florida football practice plus the latest on a really HOT recruiting class including a ton of first hand info from the U.S. Army All-American Game. In other words, you’re going to get a LIVE Private Screening which means the kind of information you can’t get anywhere else. Many folks were wowed at our Atlanta SEC Gathering and here’s a testimonial:

“The stuff we heard in Atlanta at the party was so great it got the whole crowd so pumped up and made me really feel we would win which we did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”—PanhandleGator

The cost? It’s $30 per person for a once in a lifetime evening for Gators only, brought to you by Gator, your inside source for everything Gator.

There are only a LIMITED amount of tickets available,

so be sure to reserve your seats NOW!

The Swamp II is located at 7216 E. Shoeman Lane, Scottsdale, AZ. Link to map…
