Hanford Dixon Player Appearance:

We will have the original Top Dawg and creator of the Dawg Pound cornerback, Hanford Dixon, as our guest of honor on Saturday night, December 15th at The Lucky Dog Grille.  This is a “Saturday Night” game, with the kickoff starting at 8:20pm against the Broncos. The game plan is to have Mr. Dixon arrive at The Lucky Dog at approximately 7pm for autographs and pictures.   He’ll hang with us throughout the game and participate in our usual game day activities. All dues-paying members are eligible to receive his autograph.  We’ll also have an autographed Hanford Dixon jersey in our raffle that evening among many other prizes.

Etiquette, Protocol, Decorum:

Any time we have a full house at The Lucky Dog, it certainly helps if everyone is courteous & considerate of one another. Some general guidelines: If you want a good seat, arrive early and claim your seat. It’s ok to save seats for other family members or friends, but please don’t save seats unless you are 100% sure that this friend or family member is coming. Finally, if you have room at your table, please allow other members to sit with you – we all bleed brown & orange and at every game new friendships are formed. I will have the “mike” throughout the game and I will be directing traffic and assisting members in finding open seats.
