    Extra incentives to join the Cyclone Gridiron Club

    Passing along word from the Cyclone Gridiron Club here...

    If you've been on the fence whether to join the Cyclone Gridiron Club or not, now is the time for a couple of reasons.

    1 - Our good friends over at Wall Stickers & Decals - Shawn Johnson, Iowa Hawkeyes, Iowa State Cyclones is offering up a choice of an ISU window graphic including a full-color I-State window or a white I-State window graphic for every new member, starting at the member-only closed scrimmage on Aug. 20. On top of that, every new member that signs up for the club throughout the season will be entered into a drawing to win a set of ISU baggo boards! Great deal here folks.

    2 - Remember that Aug. 20 is the day when we'll learn who Iowa State's starting QB will be in 2011. Here are some more details on a MEMBER-ONLY scrimmage that will take place that day.

    - 4 p.m. start - Coach Rhoads will speak at 5:50 and the scrimmage will go down at 6.

    - You can sign up online, but an Aug. 16th deadline exists for the scrimmage.

    Let me know if you all want some more details and I'll contact some board members to figure out your questions.

    Not saying for sure, but I think they may test the live feed on the CyMAX Storm Tracker as well...

    CycloneFanatic.com says, "they are dedicated to being the #1 website in suporting ISU ..." Accordingly, ".....the site averages 100,000 unique visitors ... a month." (WOW?!)



    Chris, isn't it time to get serious about supporting the Gridiron Club?

    Develop a co-op promotion where everyone gives $100 to Cyclone Fanatic and they pass $50 to the Gridiron Club. (These Fanatic members could have premium features/..or not.) If just 10% of the 100,000 viewers gave their support, that would be (um..$1/2 mil to the Gridiron and $1/2 mil to you......) a lotta money.

    Re: Extra incentives to join the Cyclone Gridiron Club

    Will they name the starter before the scrimmage starts like when Rhoads is talking?

    My guess would be that you will find out at the first snap of the ball. Usually he just talks about how practice has been going thus far. and thanks everyone for their support.

    How do you join? How do you get into the scrimage? Do you get a gridiron club card? Just helpful information.

    Last year they had a list and name tags.

    Re: Extra incentives to join the Cyclone Gridiron Club

    I was disappointed to see the scrimmage cost extra money to attend beyond just the membership dues.

    I can understand for the food and all (if you are going to eat), but if you just want to attend the scrimmage I'm not sure that you should have to pay more.

    I agree with you on this, however...

    I am a re-elected board member for a nonprofit (Not the GC) and pay the same yearly membership fee like everyone else has too. Even though I pay my yearly fee for my membership and serve as a board member, I have to pay for luncheons and special speakers when I attend events as the same as other members regardless if I take full advantage of everything at the event. Non-members pay more or are not invited to certain events so exclusivity is part of the benefit of the membership. It is a membership, not an ownership.

    So the benefit is, I pay at a lower rate than a non-member would due to my membership, not position and may get opportunities that the non-members do not. Sounds like the GC is similar, however, not sure how the board works.

    So I think it stinks, yet I think it is just part of how a NP’s work with fundraising and hopefully supporting a good cause.

    Are you serious? It's $10 a person! Heaven forbid you part with an extra $10. Imagine the horror of paying $50 to attend the Albaugh outing (non golf)! If $10 is that meaningful to you, I'd advise you to become a Drake fan.

    I doubt that is the point Frak, but carry on.

    Step away from the ledge . . . . .


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    It absolutely is not the point, but let him freak out. I don't care about the money. I spend alot of money supporting ISU. It is more about convenience for me. I'd just rather see it be included as part of the annual membership fee. The Gridiron events are pretty much the same from year to year so I'd think you could plan for the costs and put them in the membership fee (or at least have an option to have them in there).

    Obviously things like a bowl trip, etc would be extra.
