An update on two August "Dukes of Hazzard" events

There ain't no dog days of summer here, that's for sure. August promises to be a fun month for the fans of "The Dukes of Hazzard," with both our North and South regions covered. In the (Great White) North, you've got the Hair Dare Dukes Days to look forward to, and here in the South -- in the good ole state of Georgia, there's the Hazzard in the Hills event.

Chad Fullerton, organizer for Hazzard in the Hills, tells BRBTV that a new guest has been added to the event. Mr. Tom Sarmento of the Hazzard County Stunt Team. Tom has a wealth of experience in the Hollywood stunt industry, and he sure can talk "The Dukes."

"Tom said that he is really looking forward to meeting fans in the North Georgia area on August 16 and being a part of Hazzard in the Hills," Chad tells us.

See our July 9 post for the full schedule of this fun day, which will include a meet-and-greet with Sonny ("Enos Strate") Shroyer.

Turn your eyes northward and you'll see the plans shaping up for the Hair Dare Dukes Weekend, a charity benefit that's now in its sixth year of helping fight cancer. It's a TV-car show, it's a chance to meet "Dukes" cast members, it's a day to do something wild with your hair for pledges for charity.

Don Pedro Colley ("Sheriff Ed Little") will be there, along with Byron ("Coy Duke") Cherry. And believe you-me, this is the kind of event where you can really get some personal time with the stars. There will also be a special guest -- a well-known classic TV star who appeared in an episode of "The Dukes" but who we're guessin' probably has never done a "Dukes" event! Now is that fun, or what??? As soon as organizer Paul Harrington lets us know we can reveal who this person is, we will!

The Hair Dare Dukes Weekend is in Leamington, Ontario, Canada, on August 23-24, with a special dinner with the stars on that Friday, August 22.

BRB will be signing copies of her reference guide "Them Dukes! Them Dukes!", along with her other books, at both of these August "Dukes" events.

BRBTV News Blog Blip: BRBTV offers condolences and prayers to the family of Paul Sorenson, our own Andy Bradley of "Dallas" at his passing last week. Sorenson also appeared in the first couple episodes of "Dynasty" and had a long, long list of acting credits dating back to the mid-'50s.
