Annual Field Meet
January 18, 19, 20, 2019

 

The 2019 Georgia Falconry Association field meet will be held at Pine Mountain, Georgia on the Martin Luther King Day weekend. Our meet headquarters will be the Mountain Creek Inn at Callaway Gardens.

Contact the Inn at 888-220-2416 as soon as you can to make your room reservations. They are holding rooms for us on a first come/first serve basis until one week before the meet. Be sure you tell them you are with the GFA to get the special room rate which is $93.00 plus taxes for a total of $110.09 per night.

Cost of the Saturday night banquet meal (to be paid at registration) will be $25.00 per person for members and $33.00 for non-members. These prices include gratuity and tax.

This meet should be one to look forward to. Don't forget our silent auction to be held at the banquet. We already have lots of great items collected. If you have something you wish to donate, bring it to the meet as proceeds help support the club.

Please email Donna Blanton with the number in your party who will be attending the banquet. We need a head count so proper planning may be done.

Pine Mountain, GA, is 60 minutes southwest of Atlanta and 30 minutes north of Columbus. Take I-85 South from Atlanta to I-185 (exit 21) and continue south to the U.S. Hwy. 27 (exit 42). Turn left onto U.S. Hwy. 27 and drive south approximately 10 miles to Pine Mountain.
