I've been thinking about trying to start an Alumni club in the area for quite a while. I've run into quite a few people in the area with UofL shirts or hats so I know there are some of us in the area. With UofL joining the ACC soon, it'd be really nice to have a decent presence in the area. I know a lot of alumni chapters do watch parties, golf outings and community service (i.e. we could raise money to legally and ethically acquire crab legs for Jameis Winston). I'd just really love to have a group of people to host any UofL Alumni or fans who come for Football, Basketball and Baseball games. There are quite a few high profile UofL athletes that have come out of Tallahassee as well. I know Willam Gay does/did a football camp here for youth in the Summers, it'd be really cool to help out or be involved with that in some way.
So is there anyone in the area that would be interested in trying to start a UofL Alumni chapter with me?
Also, has anyone else on Card Chronicle had any experience starting an alumni chapter whether official or unofficial? Any advice? Any contacts with UofL to make it an "official" chapter if we can find enough members? I'm also wondering if UofL would provide any contact information for known alumni in the area.
Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
