I know I'm incredibly early but I was thinking of taking my family to our first G Day game this year. I wondered if some of you had been before and could help me get an idea on how it works.

Is there a charge to attend?
How is the parking?
How much fun is it?
Is there any access to players and/or coaches?

I've been a few times, I always have a good time.

No, there is no entry fee, however they do ask folks to bring a canned good item to collect at the gates to help supply the homeless shelters in Athens. They won't turn you away if you don't bring one though.

Parking is free as well and there's never an issue finding some, as you can park in any of the nearby decks or lots, IIRC.

If the weather is nice, it's a great time. You can enjoy some time on campus, some football for as long as you wish (it's a glorified scrimmage so it depends on how long that can hold your interest) and sometimes UGA baseball home games will fall on the same day so you can get events in on the same day.

Nice, I'll definitely be looking into going. I haven't been to Athens since 2005 so I figure it's about time. Thanks for the info.

Supposed to be the week before the Masters this year, seems smart. That's a tournament I wouldn't compete with lol.

I've only been to one game, but it was incredible. My wife and I got tickets as an anniversary gift and its been the best gift I've gotten.

I'm actually working on plans to get to Jax this year with my brother-in-law too. Hope we can make that work.

Give me a call if you do. If your looking to party you'll fit right in at our tailgate.  We pretty much go crazy for UGA vs UF. Drinks, liquor pong, grilling, more drinking and busting Gayta fans balls that there Muschump can touch Richt. Lol. The I hose the with champagne after the game.

LoL, I doubt I could keep up. Haven't drank in years but have nothing against having a great time. Will let you know if it works out.

I usually hit at least 3 a year.  Oh man you're gonna have fun.  Hopefully we revenge the debacle in Columbia last year.

Sounds good fellas. I start planning the tailgate on October 1st. Usually challenge some Gayta fans to some liquor pong. Fiancée makes 100 epic Jell-O shots for breakfast. With plenty of stuff to chase it with

That'd be baller.  Never been to Jax for the game.  The only game I've been to outside of Athens is Auburn.  Going to Clemson to burn that down this year though.
