=================
        The Rock Valley College Men's Fastpitch Club is announcing that the club has officially adopted a name for the team. In the past, club members have discussed the need to have name to identify with. Many teams across the country have innovative, interesting or descriptive names for fans, players, and opponents to identify with (i.e. Circle Tap Lumberjacks, Dekalb Hustle Hogs, BHAC Pride, Hallman Twins, etc. ).
        The team will now be officially known as the RVC Clubbers. The name came from the combination of a big bat that can look like a club and the fact that we are a club team affiliated with a college. Thus the name Clubbers seemed an appropriate name for our team. A new image has been adopted that will fit with the Clubber name and will be displayed on various team apparel, team website and newsletter.
        The team will also be putting out a newsletter that will be circulated throughout the RVC campus and participated in RVC Club day on September 20th on the RVC campus. The plan will be to have a newsletter created once/month throughout the 2006-2007. The newsletter will contain: Box scores from league games, tournaments, player profiles, club fundraising events, practice schedules, game schedules, and community service projects. We hope that this will be a great way to spread the word about the club and its activities.  Our September newsletter is posted on your club website, with the October Newsletter coming out this week.  
        The Interncouncil Club day is a special day for all RVC clubs to set up a booth to expose other students to the clubs activities. This is also a day where clubs recruit new members for the upcoming year. This was the first time that the RVC Clubbers were be able to participate in this special event. Club President, Ryan McDuffa and Treasurer, Paul Boyd  manned the booth, spreading the good word about the great sport of fastpitch softball.    Club resulted in eight new RVC students interested in participating in the sport of fastpitch softball.  
Finally, the club has launched a new website for this upcoming season.   The website will include our roster, schedule, pictures, statistics, etc.  The site can be accessed at the site below:

Wish us luck as we continue to expand the only college men's fastpitch club in the United States.
