Message from the BTC President – Robert Webb
It is the bitter sweet time of the B1G Ten football season. No matter if your team is winning in reality or spirit, the season is coming to an end. Luckily you have the Big Ten Club to keep the good times rolling in December.
The regular college football season closes with a Friends of the Big Ten Pub Crawl in Hermosa Beach on Dec 7th. Join 1,000 of your closest Big Ten Friends on an epic pub crawl and then watch the B1G Ten Championship Game at The Underground sports bar.
The next weekend, December 14, is our Annual Holiday Party which we are combining with a Tour of the Rose Bowl. The Rose Bowl Tours are led by a private docent and feature a tour of the locker rooms, press boxes, suites, and an opportunity to kick a field goal. The Holiday Party is right next door at the Brookside Golf Course clubhouse. Don’t forget to wear you most festive holiday apparel.
The Queen's Luncheon is Friday, December 20, and offers our members an opportunity to interact with the Rose Bowl Court at the exclusive Valley Hunt Club in Pasadena. Tickets are included with your Rose Bowl tickets, or you can purchase separate tickets by clicking here.
Rose Bowl Float Decoration and Rose Bowl Hall of Fame Luncheon information is coming soon. Check back on www.bigtenclub.com for the latest information.
