Not only are we raising money for Drew’s commercial sewing machine…we’re also getting to know each other a lot better! And having a great time doing it! Thanks to everyone who came out to support us.
With the season’s outstanding end, the Boosters and players gathered on Sunday, May 4th, at Kiwanis Park in Bettendorf to celebrate our successes and say our goodbyes.

Big Booster thanks to the team, the Front Office, Jordan Melville, our sponsors and supporters….and most of all, to our hard-working members, whose contributions of time and donations have made this such a sensational season. Perhaps our biggest compliment came yesterday from team president Bob McNamara, who noted that of all the booster clubs he’s worked with, he’s never seen any group do so much for the players and the organization. Well done, Boosters!!!!
