This Saturday, July 16th, there is something unique happening in Middletown, Ohio. One hundred plus will gather at the Eastview Baptist Church. They will be wearing blue and white. They will sing along to “My Old Kentucky Home” as they prepare for the upcoming UK football and basketball seasons. They are Kentucky fans in the faraway land of Ohio.
Last year was my first to attend the convention. Larry Vaught had suggested for years that I attend. “You will love it, it is people just like you,” he repeated every year. He was right.
The Ohio Annual UK Convention has been occurring since 1990. The first four meetings were held on picnic grounds with one featured speaker As the crowds grew, the gathering moved to a comfortable church with a full agenda of football and basketball speakers and panels.
This year’s UK Convention will be held on Saturday July 16th. Guest Speakers included: Jack “Goose” Givens, DeWayne Peevy, Ryan Clark & Joe Cox. There will also be a panel hosted by Freddie Maggard, Larry Vaught and yours truly.
The Cameron Mills Radio Show will be broadcasting live from the Convention from 10-12 am. If you cannot attend, you can tune in to 1580am Lexington or Iheart Radio and listen to all the activities.
There are still some spots left for registration. I encourage all BBN to make the trip up I-75. It is time to get excited about the upcoming football and basketball seasons and what better way to do that than spending the day with other UK fans.
