There's a new "Dukes" club in town, and when we say "in town," we mean THE town ... beautiful Covington, Georgia, the birthplace of "The Dukes of Hazzard."
Chad Fullerton, an avid "Dukes" fan since he was just a little tyke watching the original airings on CBS Friday nights, has formed the Covington, Georgia "Dukes of Hazzard" Fan Club. That's him, in this photo, beholdin' his very first General Lee (he told BRBTV it wasn't the greatest replica in the world -- but he was still excited!). His dad, another avid "Dukes" fan, Jim Fullerton, is the shadow who's taking the shot!
Chad has been working with Rose King and Albert Landis to get the website for the Covington club up and running, and the team has been taking fan club signups at "Dukes" events such as last weekend's unveiling of the lovely Lee 1. Now, next Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, the Covington, Georgia "Dukes of Hazzard" Fan Club will have a raffle drawing for a cool "Dukes" model car. It will be held on the historic square in -- you guessed it -- Covington.
Check out the website, and you can sign up to join the club, watch for future events, see photos from past events or just chat. And if you want to know more about the club, contact Chad, Rose or Albert. Best wishes to the club! Yeeeeeee-haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
