President's Letter

Hello Big Ten Club Members, 

           What an exciting year! It is the 100th Rose Bowl game, and the BCS National Championship will be taking place in Pasadena as well. Due to our long standing relationship with the Tournament of Roses, we will be getting a ticket allotment for both games. This year only, we will be holding a special pre-sale of these tickets for members who have paid their 2013/2014 dues. You can purchase packages here starting August 26th. Make sure to buy your tickets right away, as they will sell out quickly.      

            Summer is not over yet so....take me out to the ball game, take me out to the park. That's right- the Big Ten are gathering at Dodger Stadium for a game versus the Chicago Cubs on August 26th. This event already has a lot of tickets purchased, and all tickets must be ordered by August 14, 2013, so sign up soon!

            We just celebrated our 67th Annual Caucus with the folks of the Tournament of Roses at the Tournament House in Pasadena. We shared video clips, Directors reported on their teams for this upcoming football season, and we talked about what we learned directly from the coaches and players at the Big Ten Media Days. A lot of the attendees took home items signed by their favorite Big Ten players and coaches.

            Haven't renewed your membership for the Big Ten Club yet? Well, now is the time! You must pay your dues by September 28th to be eligible to purchase Rose Bowl and BCS National Championship tickets, remain on our roster and mailing list, and participate in our "Pick the Finish Contest".
