Attention Gator Alumni, family, and friends,
ROAD TO AN OFFICIAL GATOR CLUB NEWS
Good news! The Baltimore Gators group recently received a call from the home office back in Gainesville that outlines the potential for an official club here in Baltimore. Historically, proximity to DC or Philly have limited the need for a club. However, the alumni association agrees that there is a definite need for an official Gator Club in this area and is working to make it a reality!
In the next few weeks, Gator alumni (alumni association members and non-members) in all areas that would be part of the future club should be receiving a mailer from the UF Alumni Association. In these you may find a short survey about the benefits of an Gator Club to you and what you would like to see out of it. PLEASE SEND THESE MAILERS BACK IN! In order for the alumni association to proceed there is a minimum mailer amount that needs to be sent back in order to demonstrate interest. Please support your fellow Gator alumni in completing these mailers.
In addition to this, if you are interested in potentially serving a leadership role in the future – there will be a introductory session conducted by the alumni association to go over the basics of a Gator Club and the responsibilities attached. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in sitting in on this session.
Overall, this is great news for our Gator community here in Baltimore! Please let us know if you have any questions. Also, if you know any Gator alumni who is not using Yahoo or Facebook – please get them this information! (We are also starting a listserve for those that are not on either service – please provide us with an email).
Given the Gators’ already amazing season, the annual tilt in Jacksonville has even more relevance than usual. Please come out and support the orange and blue at Stained Glass Pub in Elkridge or Porters in Federal Hill. Directions to each venue are posted on our official website (www.baltimoregators.com/gatherings).
We really appreciate everyone who as been coming out to watch the games with us as well as those who are following along on facebook or twitter for updates. If you have any questions or concerns (or even compliments?!) please contact us on facebook or through the Yahoo directory.
Thanks and GO GATORS! Beat UGA!
