They can't pull one over on Gordon Pirkle. When the local historian and Dawsonville legend turned 80 years old on Dec. 27, the surprise party orchestrated by his family and friends was in the works. Since the weekend prior to his birthday was Christmas and the weekend following was New Year's, Jan. 7 was the logical choice.
