'A&E’s Duck Dynasty' TV stars’ appearance at GCHS Sept. 28 canceled | News
GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - "A&E’s Duck Dynasty" television stars’ planned appearance Sept. 28 at Graves County High School in far western Kentucky has been canceled, due to insufficient ticket sales, according to GCHS athletic director Doug Gloyd.
“I am blessed that the [show’s starring] Robertsons were willing to work with us and not allow us to take a loss on this event,” Gloyd said. “At Graves County, I have been successful with some of these events in the past; however, this one did not go over so well.”
A previous appearance several of the show’s cast members was very successful, selling out the Eagles’ Nest Gymnasium with far more than 4,000 spectators. Feedback from those in attendance also was very positive. Other speakers in the past couple of years included National Football League quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Peyton Manning.
“We probably have done too many of these in such a short period of time,” Gloyd surmised. “As John Maxwell says, ‘Sometimes you win. Sometimes you learn.”
For credit card ticket purchases, those costs will be credited back to that credit card account.
For tickets purchased through the athletic office, please return the tickets to Graves County High School for a refund before Oct. 5. No refunds will be issued after Oct. 5.
For raffle ticket purchases, officials will follow through with the raffle, providing the prize package to the drawing’s winner.
“I really hope people are understanding [concerning this situation]; however, I understand if some people are disappointed,” Gloyd concluded. “Trust me, nobody is any more disappointed than I am.”
For questions regarding the event, contact the GCHS athletic office at 270-674-4884 or 328-4884.
