So as many of you know we are moving to NE Florida in June. Well I wanted to get the groundwork for a future Hokie Club Chapter started. Messaged a Hokie Club employee I've worked on some other topics with to see what I needed or who I could talk to. He wrote an introduction email to another person and said they had meetings that week but should get in touch.
Well fast forward a week and half and nothing. Messaged back and got an answer later that day. In the whole damn state of Florida there are no Hokie Club chapters NONE. So I asked the next question, how many Hokie Club members do y'all have there, the answer, "no idea". I have to provide them with zip codes within the area I think people would be willing to join near Jacksonville and then they can get me membership numbers.
To say I'm floored would be an understatement. A primary goal of the Hokie should be growing local chapters in conjunction with Almuni chapters and yet nothing.
So it seems the Hokie baseball team is playing a tournament right here in Myrtle Beach. One would think the Hokie Club, Alumni chapter would have sent out notices to the Myrtle Beach and Charleston area Hokies, did they, nope. It's disappointing to see these lost opportunities to grow the fan base and Hokie Club membership.
