The 2012 Cubs Convention is January 13 through 15, and, given the exciting organizational turnover, I can’t wait to see Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer – among many others – address the fans. To that end, Cubs Convention weekend passes go on sale this morning.
Weekend passes go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m. CT. Fans can purchase up to six passes per person while they are in supply. Each weekend pass is $60 plus convenience fees, with proceeds benefitting Chicago Cubs Charities. Passes will be available for purchase by visiting cubs.com or by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS.
Besides seminars with Epstein and Hoyer, fans will see Hall of Famers Ernie Banks, Billy Williams and Fergie Jenkins at the event.
The 2012 Cubs Convention will feature enhanced layouts and new exhibits, such as an interactive baseball area hosted by the Illinois Baseball Academy, a new electronic gaming zone and the LEGOLAND® Discovery Zone. cubs.com.
I’ll be hitting up the Convention as well – not participating, just as a fan – so, for any readers in attendance who’d like to meet up, we’ll have to try and put something together. Confession: it will be my first Cubs Convention, so I’m looking forward to seeing what all the hubbub is about.
As the date gets closer, we can figure things out. Until then, get your passes.
(No, this is not an advertisement. I’m genuinely excited.)
