President's Letter

Message from BTC President – Robert Webb

Big Ten Club Members:

Can you feel the anticipation? B1G Ten Football is only 19 days away!  It has been great seeing so many Big Ten Members at recent events.  We watched The Cubs beat the Dodgers (thanks Lisa and Derek), and over 150 B1G Ten alumni and friends enjoyed our 7th annual Big Ten Beach party (Thanks WISC, PSU, NW and IOWA).

It’s no secret that it’s the time of the year when folks have the most B1G Ten spirit.  After all, every team is in 1st Place.  The club has one more incredible event to get you ready for football season.

Big Ten Football Kickoff Party – Road to the Rose Bowl – Featuring Person of the Year Bob Miller and special guest Rose Bowl Hall of Famer Fred “Curly” Morrison on Saturday, August 23rd.  This event is very special to our organization and will be the 68th time the Big Ten Club of Southern California and the Tournament of Roses celebrate the start of college football season together.  This is an event you will want to attend!  

Person of the Year and University of Iowa alumnus Bob Miller has been the “Voice of the Kings” for the last 41 years and is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, California Sports Hall of Fame, and University of Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame.  He is a recipient of the 2000 Foster Hewitt Award and received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2006.

In July, Vice President Alvin Chang, Past President Joan McLane and I had the opportunity to attend the B1G Ten Media Days and Football Kickoff Luncheon in Chicago.  We were able to build, renew, and gain new relationships with B1G Ten Football coaches, players, and officials to help the club continue its relationship with the B1G Ten Conference.  Our experiences and coaches’ transcripts are on our website here.  Be sure to check out this site before attending the Big Ten Football Kickoff Party.
