The 24th annual Cubs Convention is set to take place at the Hilton Chicago from Friday, January 16, 2009 through Sunday, January 18, 2009. Tickets to the event go on sale on Thursday, November 6th at 10:00am CT. The Cubs convention weekend pass costs $60.00 plus applicable service fees. With each convention pass, you have access to all photo and autograph sessions and all question and answer sessions with Cubs players and management. You will also be able to peruse the numerous memorablia and vendor booths throughout the hotel. Some proceeds of the Cubs Convention benefit Cubs Care, a long-time fund of the McCormick Foundation.
The Cubs Convention has sold out for several consecutive years now. It is always a good way to hear all the new things planned for the Wrigley Field game day experience, as well as heckle your “favorite” Cub who never seemed to come through in the clutch during the previous year. Given the miserable post-season performances by most of the Cubs the last 2 seasons, I am looking forward to a little of the heckling. Definitely bring your camera – you never know who you are going to bump into at the Cubs convention…
