CLUB EVENTS - RECAP
Queen’s Luncheon and Rose Bowl Recap
The Valley Hunt Club was the site of another excellent Queen’s Luncheon with many Tournament and Big Ten Club members in attendance. Our very own Derek Hildebrandt maintained his high standard of hosting with a call-in from Wisconsin Head Coach Bret Bielema and giveaways of some great Media Day swag. The Queen and her Court enjoyed the festivities and were able to share with us some of their fondest Rose Bowl memories and Court experiences.
