    Cyclone Club in Eastern Iowa?

    My wife and I getting ready to move back to the Eastern Iowa area, and I was wondering if any of you were part of a Cyclone Club/Alumni Group in that area. I would really like to be more of an active alumni and booster, and figured this would be a good place to start.

    Thanks for any help.

    I thought Pollard dissolved it a couple years back. He told them that they could join the National cyclone club, but the universty would not allow any "sub-division" of clubs.

    As far as the Cyclone Club through athletics, I believe the previous poster is correct. As far as the alumni association, here is a list of the clubs in Iowa:

    Iowa State University Alumni Association - ISU Alumni Association National Clubs Program

    They do game watches and things like that.

    Welcome back to Iowa! We need all of the Cyclone fans that we can get back here-especially in Eastern Iowa!

    If I understand the term "sub-division" of clubs, I think this is a dumb policy. I think it makes it harder to deal with local issues with the local media, etc. For an example, and I hate to use Iowa as the example, but it is the only one I'm familiar with; recently a local TV station here in Omaha has sent out correspondece to the local I club to let them know that they will work with them to ensure Iowa gets good local TV coverage in an area obviously dominated by the huskers. Obviously, a positive relationship has developed between the local I club and the local media.

    I don't see that kind of interaction with local Cyclone fans. Could it be because there isn't really a local strong voice on the part of a strong local club because the National won't allow a strong local presence necessary to foster a close relationship with local media?

    Just wondering.

    It was done in part because there was a percentage of people who would give $40-50 to their local club in order to attend the dog and pony show (i.e., golf and dinner), but wouldn't donate to the NCC. They figured that because they had given to the local club, they were good.

    Also, some of the clubs were haphazardly organized.
