~~"Sooner Powerstrokers" name change POLL~~

After some discussion, it seems some of the Oklahoma members would like to see the word "Sooner" taken out of the Chapter name. I know we can't please everyone but we will try to please the majority. Hell, I'm a cowboys fan but i don't care either way.

BigTone motioned to have a vote and I seconded that motion.

So the question is:

Would you like to change the name from "Sooner Powerstrokers" to something else without the word Sooners in it?

Please do not vote here unless you are an OKLAHOMA RESIDENT and either a current member of the chapter or a potential future member.

Okay, vote and feel free to comment about how or why you voted.
This name change is only in respect to those who are avid Sooner haters...lol.
If you just don't like the name for some other reason, please don't skew the vote because of that.
We can not please everyone but the name was voted on in a poll and the majority voted for it.

Hey Clay,
I'm confused. (A frequent state for me). Do you want everyone to
vote here? I'm not sure who you are addressing in this thread

Everyone who is or wants to be a chapter member.
But i wanted the vote to be based on the word sooner in the name and not the word Powerstrokers (one person has already expressed interest in changing it because he didn't like the word Powerstrokers) This is only about the word Sooners.

My previous post wasn't worded right...

OK, I voted. Since I don't have a problem with it, I did not vote to change it "before I'll become a member." However, if the name is a real sticking
point for cowboy fans, I don't mind a name change.

I have absolutely no interest in college sports, and have never attended a
game (even while a student). However, I understand that some folks
have heartburn about putting something on their truck that might be
misinterpreted as support for OU.

So, I'm neutral on the subject. Whatever gets us to a viable, active
chapter!

Maybe i worded it wrong.... Instead of saying "I would like to change it before i join" it should be interpreted as "I don't want to put anything "sooner" on my truck"

Maybe Alan can change that for me.
