FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- The Colorado State University Ram Club on Sunday launched a New Member Referral Contest that will award assorted prizes to current members who help to grow the club. The contest lasts until Aug. 31, when CSU renews its rich football rivalry with the University of Colorado in the Qwest Rocky Mountain Showdown at INVESCO Field in Denver.
"This contest is an excellent way to get our current members involved in promoting the Ram Club and encourage friends, family, and neighbors in the community to support student-athletes," said Dan Johnston, the annual fund director for the Ram Club.
Prizes will be awarded to existing members based on the number of new members brought in.
- Those who refer one-five new members will receive a set of glasses with the Colorado State logo.
- Ram Club members who refer six-10 new members will receive a Colorado State embroidered visor.
- Those who refer 11-15 new members will receive authentic CSU athletic apparel.
- And, those who recruit 16 or more new members will receive an autographed ball of their choice.
"We are only as strong as our current members, and I hope they enjoy the opportunity to help us grow our membership and abundance of Ram pride," said Johnston.
The Ram Club is composed of approximately 2,200 members made up of alumni, friends and fans of Colorado State University athletics. Contributions provide athletic scholarship support to more than 400 student-athletes participating in 16 varsity sports.
