JOIN THE TORNADO CLUB AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE CHICK MARTIN CHALLENGE ONLINE

Forms available on www.BCTornados.com

Brevard, N.C. - The Brevard College Athletic Department is pleased to announce several additions to BCTornados.com. Now followers of the Brevard College Tornados have the option to join the Tornado Club online as well as contribute to the Chick Martin Challenge Fund.

Established in 2006, the Tornado Club, the Brevard College athletic booster club, generates financial support to assist in covering program expenses such as operational costs, facilities improvements, championship awards and enriching the overall athletic experience at Brevard College. Through donations, supporters of Brevard College Athletics help the student-athletes' progress as they compete in NCAA Division II South Atlantic Conference athletics.

A benefit introduced this May, the Tornado Club sponsors Club membership at the Recent Grad level for newly graduated alumni of Brevard College. This benefit is for the first two years following graduation with an option of renewing at the low cost of only $25 for each of the next three years. It is the Tornado Club's way of saying, "We want you with us!" Recent graduates should call the office and enroll or print the membership application, indicate year of graduation and mail to the Athletic Department.

The Chick Martin Challenge, a drive for the funding of the Chick Martin Training Center and the naming of the Boshamer Gymnasium floor, is named in honor of longtime coach, teacher, mentor and friend, Chick Martin.

The Tornado Club has accepted the challenge of funding the renovations of the indoor pool area into a state-of-the-art Weight Room in order to provide strength-training facilities for our students, student-athletes, staff and faculty. The training center and the naming of the gymnasium floor will be funded exclusively through private funds raised by the Tornado Club.
