    Chicago Area Fanatics??

    Hey Guys,

    I'm a long time obessed reader of Fanatic, I just don't post too often. Anyways, I'm new to the Chicago area (Vernon Hills) from downstate Illinois, and last night my wife attended a meeting of the local Alumni Association. They're looking to get more younger alumni involved and my wife and I (04 and 05 grads) are taking this project on. We're sick of seeing Hawkeye gear everywhere we go and low attendence at ISU hosted events...and we know there are tons of Cyclones around!

    We're going to be the party planners - IE game watches, Cubs' games, bar crawls, etc.

    If you guys could, email or PM me with your email address and what city you're in so I can add you to my distribution list. I'll send out a mass email later this month so we can start to get this ball rolling.

    Thanks in advance! andersontyler83@gmail.com

    "Alums" may be a strong word...that implies graduating from said university.

    I'll take a survey of all the people wearing Hawkeye shirts. My guess is less than 50%.

    Any other ISU fans in the Chicago area? Thanks to those of you who have PM or emailed me. This should be a fun year to support the Clones!
