My only criticism is related to basic sales opps missed ....

Signing up folks for PC on the spot at every opportunity . Tables at all events and not just one . and tailgate lots .

The volunteers do a lot of the heavy lifting . They are awesome ! That said......Paid employees should be manning these booths on gameday to support volunteers. Game day is a work day . Period . The lots are full of potential donors . Plenty of no cost incentives to get folks to renew or sign up for first time . Virtually nothing is done in a target rich environment. Unfathomable that PC leaders don’t recognize or value this opportunity .

I have no complaint about being treated rudely. Ever. I did almost throat punch JBatt one time after listening to his drivel for too long .

New ideas need to be met with action. Discuss them and implement the good ones .

I specifically asked why there were not more pirate club sign up tables and people walking lots to sign up members . I will not share the response, but it was very disturbing. Not rude , but alarming nonetheless.

Winning football makes the sales pitch easier I get it . Gotta ask for the order though . No where near enough grass roots recruiting going on by the paid employees . Dumping the work on the volunteers is not sustainable . We all know great pirate folks who have stopped volunteering because of the demands put on them .

If anyone has been treated rudely they should make it public and get it resolved . Never a place for that .
