  • 1989: A grassroots letter-writing campaign is initiated to convince the City of Clemson that the loss of the institution of the Tiger Town Tavern is not in the community's best interest. Within three weeks, the city will be inundated with responses from loyal Clemson T3 patrons and fans, and the city quietly folds the tent on its attempt to gain control of the Tiger Town property. The city never gives a count of how many responses they received. Suffice it to say, it was more than THEY had anticipated!
