Leaguefest 2013 Update!
First, my apologies to all planning or interested in attending Leaguefest 2013 next month in Chicago; I had planned on having a schedule close to finalized for the event sometime in late April, or at least last week. Unfortunately, real life has been interfering heavily with my time the last few weeks.
The good news is that we’re just 3 and a half weeks away! While I promise to have a final update and schedule out for everyone before we all head to Chicago so we can all know where and when to meet for each event/get-together, things are very much taking shape. From your responses to my survey question in the previous post, it’s clear that almost everyone will be in town by the afternoon of Friday, June 7. As such, and given that at least one person will have to leave fairly early on Saturday, the plan for now is to have the two most planning-intensive events on Friday, with Saturday’s schedule to be comprised of a mix of museums/Jazz Festival/bar-hopping capped off with a big group dinner.
As I said, the two most planning intensive events are going to be on Friday, June 7: (1) the Cubs game at 1:30 PM at Wrigley Field; and (2) a sunset sailboat cruise on Lake Michigan leaving out of the harbor about a mile east of Wrigley at 5 or 6 PM. With regards to the cruise, I’d like to publicly thank commenter Angela, who has offered and agreed to take us all (well, at least as many of us as can safely fit) out on her boat.
Because these two events require advance planning, please indicate below which of these events, if any, of these two events you’ll be joining us for. I can safely say that my wife and I will be in attendance for both. Regarding the Cubs game, please only respond if you are prepared to commit to paying for your tickets, as I will have to front the money to get a block that will allow us to sit together.
Thank you for your cooperation, and I look forward to seeing you all in person in a couple of weeks.
