When: Saturday, January 20, 2018

Where: The “NEW” Dillard House Conference Center, located behind the Dillard House in Dillard, Georgia.

Who: The more the better. Everyone interested in protecting cold-water resources, and their families, friends, and all who love clean cold streams, trout, and trout fishing.

Social: About 5 o’clock PM folks will start gathering to “pick the pig” and enjoy the rocking chairs on the porch of the Conference Center. There will be snack trays of cheeses, crackers, veggies with dips and fruits. Soft drinks and ice will be available. If you want something stronger, better bring it yourself. (BYOB) There will also be a fire inside to warm your buns. The Foxfire Boys, with their famous Blue Grass Music, will begin at 5 pm.

Dinner: Fish, Chicken and Pork with all the side dishes and desserts that have made the Dillard House so famous, will be served about 6:30. It is a serve yourself buffet, so you will not leave hungry.

Cost: $35 for adults. $25 for those under the age of 15. Cash, checks, VISA or MasterCard. We don’t do advanced tickets, just pay at the door.
