The 12th annual Coca-Cola Big Orange Caravan began its 12-stop tour April 24 in Union City. The Caravan continued to criss-cross the state in May and also made stops in Atlanta and Birmingham.
"The Caravan is a great opportunity for Vol fans to meet Phillip Fulmer, Jerry Green and other staff members face-to-face, and get a snapshot or autograph," said UT Associate Athletic Director Mike Hamilton, coordinator of the event. "Our coaches always enjoy sharing their previews of their upcoming seasons with Vol fans across the state."
There are golf events with Fulmer, Green and other Vol coaches and staff members for VASF members and UT Letter winners in some locations, with an evening dinner open to the public. In addition, there were six evening dinners on the tour and a UTNAA-sponsored golf tournament in Atlanta. Dates, times and other information are listed below.
