Membership Drive 2011!

The Gator BackCourt Club held its annual membership drive on Sunday, October 16, 2011 at the University Women’s Club. This event doesn’t happen by itself. The BCC Board started preparations for this event in August. It really does take a village – thank you to all volunteers for helping make this event a success.

Robin, Jane and Dottie assisted at the membership table accepting applications. We had a great turnout and thank everyone for coming!

No drive would be successful without delicious food! Napolotano’s catered the evening’s food – great compliments from members. Thank you to Ron Defilippo of the The Swamp for providing beer and wine!

Coach Butler with this year’s BCC President Miriam Cintron. Miriam’s mantra for this year and each year hereafter is: “We support Florida Women’s Basketball!”

Alberta made a special appearance at our event. Thank you, Alberta! Here she is with member Mac Davis. Yes, if you didn’t attend you missed a good time. Remember, though, that it’s never too late to join and the BCC will have many more events.

BCC VP Leslie White working hard at the merchandise table. This year’s merchandise includes new t-shirts, orange and blue wristbands and window vinyl stickers.

BCC members Luella and Eula enjoying themselves and the good food from Nappy’s.

Coach Page and former player and current BCC member Cassie enjoying the membership drive. Cassie will also be honored as our SEC Great during the SEC tournament in March. Congratulations, Cassie!

Of course, we have our autographed basketball signed by all the coaches ready for raffling. Join the Gator BackCourt Club and purchase as many chances as you want to win this fantastic ball.

2011-2012 is going to be an exciting season and we’re glad you’re a part of it. For those of you who didn’t make the drive, stop by the club table at all home games and complete your membership application.

Thank you for supporting Florida Women’s Basketball and Go Gators!
