If they put their name in the From: header of the message as in

  From: User Name <user at example.com>

the subscription approval will have both their name and email address.

If you want more, or a more reliable way to get the information, change
your instructions to ask them to mail members-owner at tucsongrs.org, and
when you receive that mail, you can add them via admin mass subscribe.
