The Gamecock Club will be rolling out the garnet carpet for its members on renewal day, Friday, January 30. Members planning to renew in person are invited to visit the Gamecock Club on the first floor of the Rice Athletics Center, located at 1304 Heyward Street in Columbia, between 8:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.
The Gamecock Club was founded in 1940 and was originally known as the BAM Club (Buck a Month). The Gamecock Club has experienced tremendous growth the past three years and has set all-time membership records in 2012 with over 15,000 members, 2013 with over 16,800 members and 2014 with over 18,000 members.
Due to the generosity of Gamecock Club members, over 500 student-athletes are currently being provided the opportunity to succeed on and off the field by furnishing the means necessary to provide athletic and academic support through scholarships.
Gamecock Club Director Patrick McFarland stated, “Renewal Day is a very important and exciting day in Gamecock Athletics. Our goal is to continue to grow the Gamecock Club and provide our Gamecock student athletes everything they need to compete in the SEC and succeed in the classroom. We look forward to welcoming back our Gamecock Club members for 2015!”
Members will be treated to popcorn and soft drinks as Cocky and Athletics Department staff distribute “I Renewed” decals. The Gamecock Club looks forward to this opportunity to show its appreciation for the support and dedication of all members.
Visitors are encouraged to park in the Athletics Village Parking Garage located at 1300 Heyward Street.
