Ronald H. Conzonire, President of the 2008-2009 Tournament of Roses.
••• Ronald H. Conzonire (Corky) served as President for the 2008-2009 Tournament year and was leading a team of 935 volunteer members who work so diligently to continue to evolve the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl Game into events that are responsive to the needs of viewers, broadcasters and sponsors while continuing to entertain. "Each year, the Tournament of Roses adds new entertainment elements to the Parade, and delivers a fun-filled, family-oriented celebration of the New Year," says Conzonire.
••• Corky Consonire has been a volunteer member of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association since 1987 and was elected to the Executive Comittee in 2001. Throughout his extensive Tournament career, Conzonire has served on and chaired various committees including Budget and Finance, Community Affairs, Coronation, Float Construction, Formation Area, Membership, Music, Parade Operartions, Post-Parade, Queen & Court and Special Events, amoung others. He has also served on the Tournament of Roses Foundation Board.
••• In addition to Conzonire's many years of service with the Tournament of Roses, he has been actively involved with numerous community organizations. He is currently a member and former president of the Pasadena Optimist Club, and is active with the San Marino City Club, International Council of Shopping Centers and the California Restaurant Association. He was a board member of the Pasadena Quarterback Club. Professionally, Conzonire is the Chairman of the Board for the C&J Food Company, which owns and operates 10 restaurants in Southern California.
••• Conzonire is a Los Angeles native. He and his wife, Mairlyn, have been married for 45 years and have resided in San Marino, California for 32 years. The Conzonires have two children, Jodi and Joseph, and five grandchildren. Conzonire enjoys sporting events such as tennnis, golf and skiing, movies, plays, reading and most of all, spending time with his grandchildren.

02 / Rose Bowl Game 2009
••• Known as the The Granddaddy of Them All®, the Rose Bowl Game kicked off a myriad of college football legacies in 1902. Since then, the game has showcased 18 Heisman Trophy Winners, produced 28 national champions, featured 189 consensus All-Americans and honored 89 college football legends by inducting them into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame.
••• Continuing the tradition, on January 1, 2009, at 2:10 p.m. (PST) following the Rose Parade, the 95th Rose Bowl Game presented by Citi will feature an exciting match-up between BCS ranked No. 8 Penn State and No. 5 USC. As home to the Pac-10 and Big Ten champions, the game will be broadcast exclusively on ABC and ESPN radio.

/SorteExchangeMasHD750/%23%23$$mmaarrttsitemaster2010/Imagescustomers/RoseParadePrislogo108w.jpg3. Editor's Note /Pasadena Tournament of Roses History.
The Rose Parade will be broadcast on ABC, NBC, Univision, HGTV, Travel Channel, RFD-TV as well as KWHY and KTLA in the Los Angeles area. The Parade is also seen in more than 200 international territories.
••• The first Tournament of Roses was staged in 1890 by members of Pasadena's Valley Hunt Club, former residents of the East and Midwest eager to showcase their new home's mild winter weather.
••• "In New York, people are buried in snow," announced Professor Charles F. Holder at a Club meeting. "Here our flowers are blooming and our oranges are about to bear. Let's hold a festival to tell the world about our paradise."
••• During the next few years, the festival expanded to include marching bands and motorized floats. The games on the town lot (which was re-named Tournament Park in 1900) included ostrich races, bronco busting demonstrations and a race between a camel and an elephant (the elephant won). Reviewing stands were built along the Parade route, and Eastern newspapers began to take notice of the event. In 1895, the Tournament of Roses Association was formed to take charge of the festival, which had grown too large for the Valley Hunt Club to handle.
••• In 1902, the Tournament of Roses decided to enhance the day's festivities by adding a football game &endash; the first post season college football game ever held. Stanford University accepted the invitation to take on the powerhouse University of Michigan, but the West Coast team was flattened 49-0 and gave up in the third quarter. The lopsided score prompted the Tournament to give up football in favor of Roman-style chariot races. In 1916, football returned to stay and the crowds soon outgrew the stands in Tournament Park. William L. Leishman, the Tournament's 1920 President, envisioned a stadium similar to the Yale Bowl, the first great modern football stadium, to be built in Pasadena's Arroyo Seco area. The new stadium hosted its first New Year's football game in 1923 and soon earned the nickname "The Rose Bowl."
••• The Tournament of Roses has come a long way since its early days. The Rose Parade's elaborate floats now feature high-tech computerized animation and exotic natural materials from around the world. Although a few floats are still built exclusively by volunteers from their sponsoring communities, most are built by professional float building companies and take nearly a year to construct. The year-long effort pays off on New Year's morning, when millions of viewers around the world enjoy the Rose Parade.
••• Nicknamed "The Granddaddy of Them All" the Rose Bowl Game has been a sellout attraction every year since 1947. That year's contest was the first game played under the Tournament's exclusive agreement with the Big Ten and Pac-10 conferences. The 1998 Rose Bowl Game was the 52nd anniversary of that agreement, the longest standing tradition of any collegiate conference and a bowl association. Now, as part of the Bowl Championship Series, the Rose Bowl has hosted the National Championship Game between the top two teams in the nation in 2002 and 2006, and will host the National Championship again in 2010.

/Imagescustomers/RoseRoyalFloat108w.jpg4. TVinews Bylines / Seven member Royal Court will reign over the 2009 New Year's Day festivities. The Rose Queen® Courtney Lee and six Rose Princesses, Mary Gaule, Jasmine Jenkins, Bridget McDonald, Molly Novell, Lauren Valenzuela and Quinn Young, will reign over the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game®.
••• A place of honor is reserved in each Rose Parade® for the float carrying the Royal Court. Every September nearly 1,000 young women vie for the honor of riding that float - participating in a month-long interview process designed to find those participants with the right combination of poise, personality, public speaking ability and scholastic achievement.
••• After selection to the Royal Court in October 2009, the Rose Queen and Rose Princesses were each presented with a peal necklace and pearl earrings from Mikimoto (America) Co., Ltd. Mikimoto is the exclusive provider of the crown and tiaras worn by the Rose Queen and Royal Court on Coronation Day and on New Year's Day. The crown Queen Courtney will don is elegant and timeless, featuring more than 600 cultured pearls and six carats of diamonds.
••• The Rose Queen and Rose Princesses will attend nearly 150 public and media functions during their year in the spotlight, spreading the word about the Tournament and Pasadena wherever they go.
