BeachFest 2012 - Kick-off Fall Football in (Beach) Style in Gulf Shores

I LOVE football, especially SEC football, which is a curiosity to some of my co-workers, but hey I was raised in the south where football reigns supreme in the fall. Events (even weddings) are planned around dates and times that our favorite SEC teams are playing. So I couldn't be happier about the first annual SEC BeachFest 2012 in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach August 23-26.

So here's the deal...not only will some of the most famous current coaches attend the event but some of the legends will be here too. Just look at the list:

Current SEC coaches featured at BeachFest 2012:
Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban
Auburn Head Coach Gene Chizik
LSU Head Coach Les Miles

The SEC coach legends:
Pat Dye of Auburn
Gene Stallings of Alabama
Vince Dooley of Georgia
Phillip Fulmer of Tennessee

You can be sure that alumni will be present at all the headquarter restaurants to celebrate a football-focused Fanfare weekend at the shore.

There will be music at the beach (another favorite activity for me) featuring the B-52s and Dr. John, plus an additional concert at the Wharf. FanZone fueled by BP will include family and kids’ activities like a sand castle building competition, sports clinics with Legendary SEC Coaches, beach games, beach volleyball, touch football with SEC legends, a 5k run and one-mile fun run, alumni golf scramble and waffle breakfast.

How can you "get in the game" for this championship celebration? Event tickets, valued at $25, are complimentary for Meyer Vacation Rental guests. In addition to rental prices being lower than summer rates there is also a FREE NIGHT SPECIAL valid for stays 8/21/12-8/29/12. Get a 3rd night free in condos or 4th night free in houses allowing promotional rates(with promo code 12SECC).

My best advice is even though it's summer and you might not be in football mode yet, book now to position yourself strategically at your favorite condo or house for a winning BeachFest weekend.
