UGASports.com along with the members of The Dawgvent Nation are planning ways to remember one of the most prolific and popular members of our community, Graeme Turnbull, a.k.a. Ghost/Ghostzilla, who passed away on February 7th, 2011 at the age of 34.

Click here to donate funds for our effort to remember Ghost

Total Donations to Date: $2,130.00

Special shout out to W.C. for his very generous donation.

UGASports, LLC, the parent company of all UGASports properties, UGASports.com, The Dawgvent, the DawgChat, and The Vault, is in the process of setting up a "Ghost" account with Athens First Bank & Trust in which all donated funds will be deposited. These funds will be used for at least two things already being planned which are listed below.

  • We have been in touch with UGA about purchasing bricks, which are formally called pavers, at Sanford Stadium's Gate 6 in memory of Graeme. You can read about that program here. (PDF). We have to submit our payment and other information very soon to ensure that the bricks are laid before the season in August. The cost for the only remaining size is $150.00, with replicas costing $50.00. We hope to raise enough money to buy the paver and five replicas that will be dispersed as follows: his family, his long time girl friend, one of his close friends, one to be displayed at The Blind Pig Tavern where we have held our national signing day parties since 2001, and one at UGASports.com HQ that will be taken to all staff appearances and national signing day. The total cost of all of this will be $400.00.
  • We would like to have an ariel message, as in an airplane banner, that we will determine at a later date over Sanford Stadium for the first home game for the 2011 season, Sept. 10 against South Carolina. We will post more on the cost of that in the near future.

UGASports.com will select a member of the Dawgvent to be involved in oversight of these funds (Update: that person is flikdiva). Should we have more donations than costs needed for the two efforts mentioned above, we will look for other ways to remember Ghost. Please send any questions or comments to steve@ugasports.com.

This page is a work in progress and will be updated so check back. Any typos are Ghost's fault ;-)
