The fall months are flying by, winter is coming in fast, the holidays will pass shortly after, and before you can even realize what's happening, it will be springtime and you'll realize you fell way behind on making your dreams of attending the 2015 Masters come true. Now, I know you don't want to be there again. Sitting at home when April rolls around, chiding yourself for not booking your access early.
While it might seem like a no-brainer to some to secure your tickets to the Masters early, you like the facts. You like the reasons. You want the full picture.
Well, golf fanatics, that's exactly what you're going to get. Without further ado, let me provide you with three reasons why booking your 2015 Masters ticket packages early makes all the difference in your experience!
1. More Selection
Everyone knows the best options are going to sell-out first. With that being said, if you're going to check the Masters off your bucket list, you want the best access available, right? Of course!
By booking early, you can select between Practice Rounds or Tournament Rounds, even a combination of both! And since you're booking early, no scalping tickets for you! You can score yours through QuintEvents, the Official Source for dream experiential packages. All of us at QuintEvents have a deep experience managing this special event and we can bundle your dream experience together!
I'm talking VIP hospitality access with complimentary gourmet fare, premium open bars, cocktail hours, private tee times, "hard to get" reservations, and much more! There are two great packages to select from, but like I said, access this exclusive isn't available forever.
2. More Days of Access
The 2015 Masters is a week long event with the Practice Rounds consuming the first few days, followed by the Tournament Rounds. It's not uncommon for fans to opt to attend a Practice Round day and then a Tournament Round day, all Tournament Round days, or even all week!
However, the longer you want to call Augusta National home, the earlier you need to book. If the course reaches capacity on a certain day and you're seeking access for the whole week, you lost your chance.
Alternatively, if you book early, you can opt to attend as many days as your heart's desire! Not to mention, attending all seven days of the tournament is your best value. And since QuintEvents' offers easy payment terms if you book further in advance, you don't have to foot the whole bill up front. You can space your payments across multiple months, making attending the Masters easier on your wallet.
3. More Inclusions
Another great feature about QuintEvents'
Masters packages is all the exclusive inclusions you can tack on! Touched on slightly prior, QuintEvents can get you and your group VIP access to golf tee times at exclusive area courses, private chef meal preparations in residences, celebrity appearances, "hard to get" dinner reservations at places you're likely to spot Masters golfers (and I'm not talking Waffle House, Bubba), invites to evening parties, and much more!
Not to mention, you can opt to include transportation to and from the course each day and luxurious hotel accommodations in your package. BUT, the longer you wait, the harder it is to opt to include items such as these.
Hotels do book up, transportation does fill-up, and reservations and parties do hit capacity. So if you're wanting to have the time of your life at the Masters will all these VIP experiences, you need to secure your access early!

The calendar and the artic air tell me that our phenomenal year of racing is nearing its end, but some leaves remain on the trees and the sweetness of Breeders’ Cup 2014 also continues to linger. The experience of owning a contender in the Breeders’ Cup Classic was an exclamation point, not only for a whirlwind year, but also for a lifetime of participating in the thoroughbred industry.
My Breeders' Cup Experience
Our story to the race un-folded much like a fairy-tale and was magical in every way except for the ending. While Majestic Harbor had never finished worse than fourth on the Santa Anita race track and he had run some of the fastest races of his life, “Rocky” just didn’t have his A-game on at the Breeders’ Cup on Saturday – finishing a disappointing 13 of 14.
The Saturday morning rain in California, a rarity, gave us early warning that the track would likely be very fast and speed favoring – making our bid to win even more daunting. We knew we were going to have to stay close to the pace and hope the early leaders would wear themselves out in a speed dual, hopefully causing them to “back-up to us” in the stretch similar to the Santa Anita Gold Cup.
A battle did indeed ensue with the speed horses, but it was all at the controversial break with Bayern, eliminating his competition gladiator-style, and then moving to the lead uncontested with some comfortable fractions. When jockey Tyler Baze asked Majestic Harbor to run, he dug in and tried to make his move.
His determined effort to close on the leaders was in vain as the speedy inside rail allowed all those horses to just keep sailing along. Majestic Harbor, feeling defeated early, decided to just throw in the towel and coast home - despite his Tyler’s encouragement and our distance, but waning, cheers.
If our horse could have understood the financial difference to us for even a fifth place finish ($150,000), I think he would have kept trying. We wanted to explain to him to “run it out past first base” just in case someone drops the ball! But, they are horses, not humans and not machines that can be more easily predicted – both the mystery and misery of the racing.
I still would not have traded the experience and I’m still immensely proud of my horse for being one of 14 starters in the field in one of the richest and most prestigious races in the world!
Moments before the race were electric and at one point in the paddock, just before the jockeys were legged-up, I was completely overwhelmed with emotion and adrenaline. I fought back tears and took several deep breaths – to fully see, hear and smell everything around me so I wouldn’t forget.
We hugged our friends and families and honored the moment with a prayer of gratitude. Our horse has given us the gift of an experience we had only dreamed of. Even in the hours, days and weeks after the race, I am still feeling proud and blessed – rolling snapshots of the day are emblazoned in my memory forever.
Add to that, I am in the best company of losers ever! There were sheiks, millionaires and celebrities whose champions also ran less than par those two days and we were among them. I’m not sure who said it but I’ve often used the quote “horses humble even Kings” – no statement can ever be more true.
Majestic Harbor appeared to have exited the race in good shape, but we did conduct a nuclear bone scan just to be certain. While a few minor spots were detected, none could explain his poor performance. We waited several days and then conferred with our partners and trainer Sean McCarthy for a plan.
Our horse competed hard for a year in graded stakes company. Majestic Harbor will get a freshening away from the track and will hopefully emerge rested and ready for a 2015 campaign. “Camp” for Rocky will allow him to put his head down for some grass, roll around in a nice sand lot and just feel the sunshine on his back untethered from the end of a leather shank. Like people, Rocky may love his job as a race horse, but everyone can use a vacation and change of scenery.
Plans for a 2015 Campaign
Going forward, we will likely add the option of turf racing to our portfolio as the older horse division appears to be full of talent with graduating 3-year-olds. Rocky’s affinity to run over long distances, gives us more races to choose from and we hope he will take to the grass surface with gusto.
The game of racing is just that – a game. We will strategize and pick spots where we think we can give Rocky the best chance to use his running style and talent to win – and will be back to battle again on the track.
While I didn’t have the same benefit of a freshening like my horse did, I did change gears and began to focus on Kentucky Derby 2015. There’s no better way to restore hope and re-frame the dream than to turn your attention to the young horses just beginning their careers. And the homecoming at Keeneland for
Breeders’ Cup 2015 planning begins in earnest too!
While time indeed “marches on” and winter approaches, I may just linger here like the leaves; in the memories of fall a bit longer.
Secure Your Seat at the 2015 Breeders' Cup!
Don't miss out on another year of championship horse racing! Get on the Quick Call Back List to be the first notified of when Official Ticket Packages go on sale so you can secure your spot at Keeneland next fall!

Will we see YOU in the blue grass state for the "Richest Two Days in Sports" next year?
It’s still early in the season, but the NBA has announced that NBA All-Star Game voting will open on Dec. 11, following its announcement of expanding the ballot to all players.
With only a little over a month underway in the 2015 season’s belt, the league’s sleepers still have time to step it up and the standouts still have a chance to fall from grace before voting begins. Anything can happen!
Ultimately, though, the NBA All-Star Weekend is the fans to create. And isn’t that what makes it great?
Despite rumors of changing the line-up requirements, the Eastern and Western conferences will stick to a 12-player line-up for the Feb. 15 game.
Here are some of my predictions of the NBA players that will debut or return as All-Stars for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game Weekend:
NBA All-Star Debuts
Demarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans
The big kid in town has shown he is having his best season yet. Looking like a young Dwight Howard, the 21-year-old has helped the Pelicans reach a 6-4 record thus far.
Nikola Vucevic of the Orlando Magic
Scoring 19 points with 14 rebounds this past Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers alone, Vucevic has been a key player in the Magic’s impressive season thus far. He keeps a low profile, though, despite averaging 18.8 points a game.
To Return From Last Year
From the East
Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans
Davis is eager and enthusiastic as a forward on the court. The former Kentucky star is clearly capable of big things and, without a major set-back, will be returning for the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend.
From the West
Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers
Incredibly dynamic with a wide skill set, Lillard has shown that he is one of the smartest players in the league. We will all be disappointed if he doesn’t receive another invite to the NBA All-Star Weekend.
NBA All-Star Game Staples
From the East
Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat
Although no one would argue he is at his best, Wade remains one of the league’s top guards. The only question fans may be asking is can he still be as impressive as LeBron James? Regardless, we don’t see him being snubbed from the NBA All-Star Weekend any time soon.
Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat
Despite the Heat’s recent slump, the forward has continued to refine his skillset, emerging this season as an incredibly smart player and still an invaluable asset to Miami.
LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers
Although his homecoming has not brought the level of success that the team had hoped, he is LeBron James. Love him or hate him, the league’s best player will play for the Eastern Conference at the NBA All-Star Game.
From the West
Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers
After a rough start, the Lakers are beginning to hit their stride now having put up two wins a row. Riddled by questions of his injury and age, Bryant maintains he’s still in the game. He will always be a league favorite.
Dwight Howard of the Houston Rockets
The power forward has been on fire this season. The interior defender has proved his capabilities time and time again, having won three Defensive Player of the Year awards.
Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks
Ahh the good 'ole steady Nowitzki. The quiet player may be winding down towards the end of his career at 36, but he is one of the hardest players to guard in the league. There is little doubt that he will make it to at least one more NBA All-Star Game.

During the draft, they'll be assisted by two active player captains and one NFL.com Fantasy Football champion!
An all-star wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings, Carter is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013. He ranks fourth in NFL history with 1,101 receptions, 130 touchdown catches and recorded eight straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons.
Irvin, a member of the 2007 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class, was a three-time Super Bowl champion and a five-time Pro Bowl selection during his 12-years with the Cowboys. He still holds the record as the Cowboys' all-time leading receiver with 11,904 yards.

The 2015 Pro Bowl is coming! The longer we try to hold onto the fall and NFL football, the faster the season is progressing. In the blink of an eye, January will be here and the Pro Bowl will be kicking-off in Arizona 25 days later. And saying this year's Pro Bowl is one to be excited about is an understatement!
The 2015 Pro Bowl has all the elements it needs to be the best Pro Bowl to date! It's no surprise NFL fans are chomping at the bit to get access to the game!
As for those of you who want to attend the Pro Bowl, but don't know where to start, this article is for you! I'm about to break down how you can attend the 2015 Pro Bowl by following three easy steps! So read on to learn how you can secure your seat in Arizona this January.
1. Find Your Tickets
The first step in securing your spot at the
2015 Pro Bowl is booking your tickets! Now, you have a couple options here. For starters, there's the secondary market. However, resellers are known to have risk. When booking through the secondary market, you're purchasing the promise of a ticket to the Pro Bowl. You purchase your access, then the company heads out to find a ticket for you. At the end of the day, you may or may not receive them.
The alternative is booking directly through the source - NFL On Location. Through NFL On Location's Official Ticket Packages provided by QuintEvents, you receive 100 percent ticket security. In fact, you'll have your tickets in your hands well before the big game. This allows you to rest easy because you know your tickets are valid and your investment is safe.
What can be better than that?
2. Book Your Hotel and Transportation
Once you've decided where to purchase your tickets, you need to book your hotel accommodations in Arizona and plan your transportation. While you can book these items yourself, you're going to run into some issues.
First, reasonably priced accommodations are hard to come by when an event as big as the Pro Bowl is in town. Not to mention, the Super Bowl is in the same area a week later! While booking yourself, you not only run the risk of hotels sky-rocketed prices per night, but of hotels being completely sold out. And let's face it. The last thing you want is to stay in a outside entry motel way outside the city while you're in town for the Pro Bowl because it's the only thing available!
The alternative is opting to include luxurious hotel accommodations in your Official Ticket Packages! No dealing with increased rates, no dealing with overbookings, no dealing with sold-out signs!
Not to mention, you can include provided-for transportation in your package, as well. A NFL On Location transportation shuttle will pick you up from your hotel for all official NFL events and return you when they are complete. This eliminates your need for taxi services or renting a car.
3. Opt for All-Inclusive
If you're not already coming to the conclusion that Official Ticket Packages are the best way to attend the 2015 Pro Bowl, hopefully this will push you over the edge! VIP experiences are all-inclusive with Official Packages!
This means you that along with your ticket to the game, accommodations and transportation, you'll also have access to tailgate with the NFL for three hours pregame inside a luxurious hospitality venue. Here, you'll find complimentary menu items, beer, wine and soft drinks, and interactive entertainment elements.
Additionally, you'll receive an invite to the Official NFL Saturday Night Party! You'll be able to enjoy complimentary food and beverage options with live entertainment, all the while mingling with NFL players and cheerleaders! It's truly a one-of-a-kind experience.
To seal the deal, you'll also receive an Official Pro Bowl Collectable Pin and an Official Pro Bowl Gift Bag brimming with 2015 Pro Bowl products and merchandise.
Start Your 2015 Pro Bowl Experience!
Now that you know the three steps to take in order to attend the 2015 Pro Bowl, it's time to secure your access! Call 1-877-611-3947 to speak to an NFL On Location representative or visit the Pro Bowl website for more information.

Typically hosted in the Big Apple, the NFL Draft is stretching its roots in 2015, and heading to the city of Chicago! This will be the first time since the 1964 NFL Draft that the event has been held in the "Windy City," which beat out Los Angeles, the other city being considered as a host.
Saying this midwest location will be the perfect destination for the 2015 Draft is an understatement. The Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, where the three nights of the draft will be held, is national historic landmark with history and culture within its walls, with the city of Chicago as its backdrop, full of skyscrapers, beautiful neighborhoods, exciting nightlife, delicious restaurants, and unique tourist attractions!
Learn more about the Auditorium Theatre, take a look at our own Chicago native's list of local hot spots and find out how you can be a part of the 2015 NFL Draft experience!
Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University: Home of the 2015 NFL Draft
It's been 51 years since the NFL Draft called Chicago home and it's returning April 30-May 2, in the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University.
Auditorium Theatre is internationally renown for its perfect accoustics, exquisite design and innovative architecture. It was built in 1889, complete with modern technology and 4,000 seats. It opened as an opera house and was met with criticism and disdain, eventually falling into disrepair. The theatre finally made its way back into use in the 1960s, becoming a "jewel in American history."

To say the theatre is breath-taking is a huge understatement. Auditorium Theatre boasts 24-karat gold ceilings, ornate glided designs, wall mosaics and murals, and hundreds of intricate stencil patterns. Pictures simply do not do it justice.
Welcome to the Windy City: Chicagoland
Now, if you've never visited Chicago before (or even if you have), you're in for a real treat. With mountainous skyscrapers, historic landmarks, popular tourist attractions, thrilling nightlife, and mouthwatering restaurants all around, there is something for everyone in the "Windy City!"
But instead of directing you to the many tourist websites you've probably already visited to find activities to partake in while in town, we've asked QuintEvents' Sales Representative and Chicago native, Kevin Livingston, to show you around!
So without further ado, here are Kevin's top picks for local hot spots you should check out while in Chicago.
- Shake-off your fear of heights by visiting the 99th floor of the Sears Tower! Walk out on the skydeck or go to the Signature Room in the Hancock on the 95th floor for brunch.
- Visit the Navy Pier and ride the ferris wheel.
- The Chicago Cubs will be taking on the Milwaukee Brewers! Watch the game LIVE at historic Wrigley Field; grab an Olde Style and experience the game like a Chicagoan would!
- Head over to Millennium Park! You haven't really been to Chicago until you've taken a picture at the Bean in Millennium.
- Experience the NFL Fan Fest. The Draft will expand outside to Grant Park and Congress Plaza where fans can enjoy interactive exhibits and autograph sessions with current and former players.

Make a Reservation:
- You can't leave without getting your fix of deep dish pizza. You can't go wrong with Lou Malnati's, Gino's East, or Giordano's!
- Looking to wine and dine? Benny's Chop House (my favorite), Chicago Cut and Tavern on Rush should be on your list.
Experience the Nightlife:
- Enjoy the views of the city from a rooftop bar. Roof On The Wit, Terrace at the Trump and Vertigo Sky Lounge are a few favorites.
- Seeking a historical lounge? Visit The Drake Hotel for a speakeasy cocktail lounge where you can see Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe's signatures carved in the bar.
- Want to stay out late night? Check out Butch McGuire's, a favorite late night establishment which stays open to 4 a.m.!
Do you have additional questions for Kevin about local hot spots and activities in Chicago? Drop a question for him in the commments below and he will get back to you!

There's been plenty of talk surrounding the first-ever College Football Playoff launching at the end of the season. While some fans wanted still a larger bracket, noone can deny the excitement surrounding the new playoff format! For the first time in college football history, a Selection Committee will determine teams worthy of competing for the national title, rather than formulas. For the first time, the national title is truly up for grabs!
Now, if you were to poll college football fans, majority of them are excited about watching the College Football Playoff National Championship, but fewer are excited about actually attending the game due to the "debbie-downers" of the world telling them that attending the biggest game of the year is outside the realm of possibility.
Well, it's time to address these fallacies! College football fans should be chomping at the bit to attend the College Football Playoff National Championship!
Take a look at the top three things people will tell you to squash your hopes and dreams of attending the
2015 College Football Playoff National Championship, and let me prove to you that they are false.
1. You Can't Go - Your Team Didn't Make It
This is the number one reason people will give you for not being able to attend the biggest college football game of the season: your team didn't make it. To be honest, that is a viable reason. However, if you love everything that is college football and you're a die-hard fan, you'd be crazy to miss this opportunity!
Sure, your team didn't make it. The Selection Committee ranked them a little too low and they just missed the cut, or maybe they weren't even close! Regardless, history is about to made at AT&T Stadium this winter. For the first time in history, an elimination process is in place and the team that wins it all will truly be considered the best of the best!
Now, if you really love college football and live for Saturdays when you can veg out on the couch and watch game after game after game, you'd be nuts to not jump on this opportunity!
Think about it! You're being given the chance to watch the two very best teams this season compete LIVE for the title of College Football Playoff National Champions! Maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't be passing that up.
2. You Can't Afford to Attend
Reason number two: it's far too expensive - you could never afford it! Now, I cannot tell a lie! Attending the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship game is not cheap. It's a bucket list event, folks!
You're not going to find a $20-50 ticket. Comparatively though, think about how much it costs to attend a huge match-up during the regular season. Think Michigan vs Ohio State, FSU vs Clemson, or Oregon vs UCLA. Fans shell out a pretty penny to attend matches like these. The College Football Playoff National Championship is the biggest match of the year. It's the determined no. 1 vs no. 2 competing for the title!
With that being said, at the national title game, you get way more behind-the-scenes access with the price of your ticket than you ever could receive at a regular season game. So when you purchase an Official Ticket Package to the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship, you're actually purchasing all of this:
- Your Ticket to the Game
- Access to a Pregame Hospitality Venue complete with a Top-Shelf Open Bar and Full Premium Menu
- Collegiate Football Legends Appearances
- Interactive Entertainment Elements
- Official College Football Playoff Gift Bag or $50 Merchandise Coupon
- Exclusive Stadium Collection Game Program Voucher
- Souvenir College Football Playoff Lanyard with Ticket Sleeve
- Preferred Playoff Premium Parking (fees not included)
- Postgame Field Access (Gold Level Packages)
Like I said, attending the College Football Playoff National Championship is far more than just attending the biggest game of the year - you're experiencing the biggest game of the year!
3. You'll End Up in the Nosebleeds
The final comment you're going to hear when talking of attending the College Football Playoff National Championship is, "sure, you're going to be there, but you'll probably be up in the nosebleeds." WRONG!
Through Playoff Premium and QuintEvents' Official Ticket Packages, there are a variety of seating locations available to you. This ensures you get seated at the level of your choice with the VIP access you're seeking. Take a look at your options:

You've decided to attend the 2015 Masters. Step one complete. Now you're tasked with finding tickets to the event. This might be a little harder than you imagined... so you thought. It's actually rather simple to get access to the Masters. You just have to know where to look. Well, search no further, golf fanatics!
With QuintEvents' Eagle Ticket Packages to the Masters, you can get the one-of-a-kind access you're looking for while having the flexibility to build your experience. Take a look at what makes Eagle Packages unique and learn why they'd be the perfect fit for you and your group at the 2015 Masters!
Eagle Ticket Packages: Your Ticket In
Eagle Ticket Packages essentially bundle anything and everything you could possible desire at the Masters tournament together. For starters, your accommodations in Augusta, Georgia are included. This eliminates your need to deal with high price bookings, sold-out hotels and keeping your entire group together.
Next, you'll receive exclusive access to
Magnolia Manor, Augusta National's premium hospitality area located right outside the main entrance to the golf club. Now, if you've ever attended the Masters before, you know just how important it is to have hospitality access.
It's an indoor escape from the Georgia elements and crowded course. Not to mention, anything you could possibly need during your time at the course you'll have access to inside Magnolia Manor. For example, take a look at the inclusions you'll have within hospitality:
- Full American Breakfast Buffet featuring Made to Order Omelets

- Welcome Reception Desk Allowing only VIPs to Enter

Anthing else fit your vision for your Masters experience? QuintEvents says bring it on!
Practice Rounds vs Tournament Rounds
Have you been convinced to attend the 2015 Masters with Eagle Ticket Packages? Perfect! The next step is to decide how many days you want to attend. Now, if you decide to go all week, you're going to get the best value for you and your group. BUT, if you decide you only want to attend for one day or a couple of days, you need to decide whether you want to attend Practice or Tournament Rounds.
Now before you rule out Practice Rounds, hear me out. Practice Rounds are some of the best days to attend throughout the tournament. For starters, you're allowed to bring cameras and cell phones into Augusta National on these days, so if you're looking to grab some pictures of the golfers or the lush greens of the course, practice days are your only opportunity to do that.
Additionally, practice days are more family-friendly because making noise is not as big of a deal, it's less crowded and it's much easier on your wallet.
On the other hand, Tournament Rounds are great to watch live. This is where winning matters and you're going to see the golfers bringing their A-game. Eliminations will happen and a winner will eventually be crowned.
Regardless of whether a Practice Round or a Tournament Round sounds like a better fit for you and your group, Eagle Packages can grant you access to both!
