Chicago's McCormick Place
Main Convention Hall.
If you made it out last year, you know the size of this event is immense!  
Larger than last year, the total event will occupy the ENTIRE McCormick 
place South AND North floors.  Huge.
This is called the Holiday Sports Festival and is run by the Mayors Office 
of Special Events.  We will have subflooring (like the Volleyball had last 
year) for 2 net courts AND still more for the freestylers.  There is a giant 
banner being hung from the 50' ceiling that says "FOOTBAG" and we are 
included in this years program as an official event.  There will be the 
Harlem Globetrotters and some of the Bulls at the Basketball area, 
there is soccer, baseball, fishing and many other events going on all 

Free admission.
Reduced ($5) Parking at adjacent lot to event. (Usually $10 per car, it is 
extremely rare that they reduce the parking rates at the convention 
parking lots, we are thankful for this)

If you are coming into town and want to stay in a hotel, we are arranging 
a deal at the Hyatt.  If you want to save money and stay at one of our host 
homes, please contact us ASAP, first come first served (we have lots of 
space though).  See above paragraph for hotel info.
