That evening, the main event will take place at the Mitchell Center at the University of Southern Alabama. The next activity is, you guessed it, an all night bus ride to Nashville, Tennessee.
On December 18th, in Nashville, they will again host a children’s clinic at the Gaylord Entertainment Center in the afternoon. That evening the main event also takes place at the Gaylord Entertainment Center. Later that evening, the team will attend a wrap-up party at a local country night spot.
