Eagles Era

A sad testament to the decline of Alton as a viable community.The club thrived in better times as they were a charter team in the Alton original city slow pitch league.Big Hank Grabbe was long time member along with his wife Kay who were big supporters of the club.It's a loss to the city and it's social fabric but a sign that city is n crisis as younger people leave the city for economic opportunity .A loss for Alton and it's future .Sad.

Too bad

What really happened is that "wink-wink" they lost their status as the gambling mecca of Southern Illinois. My grandpa used to go there and gamble upstairs when gambling wasn't allowed anywhere. It's funny to see that they blame it on the Smoke free law right after they blame it on younger people not getting it when it comes to fraternal organizations. I think the real problem is they were set in their ways and couldn't adjust. Now that everyone has legal gambling machines and are doing a lot better it looks to me like leadership couldn't figure out, how to stand out and bring in members.
