    Local officials from all over Bulloch County were in Atlanta Tuesday to play host to the annual Wild Game Supper, held just across the street from the State Capitol. The event, planned and catered by Georgia Southern University, was sponsored by the Statesboro-Bulloch Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Bulloch County and the City of Statesboro.
    Chamber president Peggy Chapman said the event was a big success.
    "I think it went great. I heard great response from the GSU side and from the city and county; they were pleased at who could come," Chapman said. "We always invite state-wide developers and we got great response from them."
    The event provided local officials the chance to shake hands and socialize with state legislators and officials while dining on wild hog, quail and other southern cuisine.
    GSU director of Marketing and Communications Christian Flathman said the turnout was high, considering it was Super Tuesday.
    "We had strong support from our legislative delegation and they were really interested in Georgia Southern, primarily because of the growth they're hearing about," said Flathman. "There was a lot of interest about the future of the university."
    Chapman said the wild game theme really helps Bulloch stand out from the crowd.
    "I know a lot of other communities do events like this in Atlanta, but if you talk to the legislators, they'll tell you Bulloch County has one of the better events that's held," said Chapman.
