BIG TEN CLUB
Happy July. I hope the 4th was a nice celebration for all of you. It's always good to be reminded of the importance of independence and freedom... and have a good excuse for a BBQ. So stay safe and cool and celebrate wherever and whenever you can. I am writing to you in 108 degree heat!
The Barry Manilow concert at the Hollywood Bowl was a smashing success... Thanks for coming out and supporting our own little Copacabana!
Kelly and I are off to Chicago and Big Ten Media Days at the end of the month, and will return with some great stories about the upcoming college football season. It's amazing how fast the summer is flying by. Before we know it we'll all be watching the opening kickoff.
Please save the date of Wednesday, August 15 for our annual Caucus at the Tournament of Roses House. This is one of our premiere events and is always a lot of fun. Invitations will be out soon, so keep your eyes open for that. This year promises to be even more exciting with some special food and surprises.
We are also looking forward to our annual Cubs-Dodgers outing on August 5 and the Big Ten Beach Party on August 18 and of course the Annual Membership Cocktail Party on Friday, September 28 at Rush Street in Culver City. This is a great chance to mix and mingle, renew your membership and enter the always popular Pick The Finish Contest. Yes, you do get extra points for putting Northwestern on top!
As always, please visit http://www.bigtenclub.com/ for the latest information and RSVP links to all of our events and activities, as well as those of your individual clubs!
We'll see you out there. Go Big Ten!
