We have just received word from the Tournament of Roses that the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon is now sold out. While we were disappointed to hear that, the good news is that there is a chance that some spots will become available later this month should there be some cancellations. If there are, the TOR will let us know so that they can then accommodate those BTC members who would like to attend. If you would like to place your name on a waiting list, please contact Jim Jacobs at 626.334.5676 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, December 23.
This year’s inductees are Ron Dayne, Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Wisconsin, famed sportscaster Dick Enberg and former University of Washington great Senator George Fleming. Keith Jackson, longtime friend of the BTC, will again serve as MC. We look forward to the possibility of seeing you on December 31!

Our Webmaster Steven Green will be President next year, and he'll have plenty to do for the Club. We are thinking of redoing the website and asking for a volunteer who can add content regularly and keep it updated. This is a very important part of our updated Communication plan, and help here would be very useful and greatly appreciated. The ideal person would have web design experience, a little graphic art knowledge and 3-4 hours a month available to help the Club.
