Save the Date: Friday, November 19

That’s right, Quarterbacks, it’s time to huddle up!  At last, football season is upon us. The NFL, colleges, and high schools are all in fall camp and season openers for all levels are just around the corner.

We thought the Quarterbacks’ season opener, originally scheduled for Friday, September 3rd, was also just around the corner. But alas, we’ve had to call an audible and cancel that event.  Our plans for that event were ambitious, but circumstances did not cooperate.

Hold on, though!  We still are planning for a meeting on Friday, November 19th, at the University Club of Pasadena. That meeting, as it has traditionally, will feature “The Great Rivalry Week: USC vs. UCLA.”  Our guest speakers will be the radio voices for each team, Josh Lewin for UCLA and Pete Arbogast for USC. They should have plenty to say by that point in the season!

In addition, we plan to honor the memories of two special people: Randy Boal, the long-time Membership Chair and Treasurer of the Pasadena Quarterbacks, and Jim Bonds, the beloved high school football coach of the St. Francis Knights. We also plan to include a brief high school recognition segment. Details to follow. 

This meeting will also honor the 76-year history of the Pasadena Quarterbacks. So please save the date and consider becoming more involved in the Club. We need new ideas and new leadership. You can contact us at membership@pasadenaquarterbacks.org.

Thanks to all of you who responded to our recent survey. Your input has been most helpful.  We hope to see all of you on November 19th!

Regards,

The Pasadena Quarterbacks Board of Directors

Quarterbacks’ Brick at Rose Bowl

Did you know that your Pasadena Quarterbacks purchased ‘a brick’ as our contribution to the Rose Bowl upgrade? Here’s what it looks like:

You can check it out in person: The brick is located at Gate “A” (the main south entrance to the stadium), at the northwest corner of the brick garden. Look for the City of Pasadena section. Our brick is in the bottom row, and under the word City.

A fitting tribute to the City, Rose Bowl, and our presence in both.
