If you weren’t able to get one of the hotel passes for the 2017 Cubs Convention, individual passes go on sale this Friday at 12pm CT. For what it’s worth, and it’s only my best guess, they will sell out quickly. There is a limited pre-sale at 10am CT that morning if you have and use a Mastercard.
The Cubs Convention is January 13-15 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. Passes will be available here at Cubs.com, and there’s a limit of four per household (don’t be a butthole scalper). Passes are $108 for the weekend, plus taxes and fees. A portion of the proceeds goes to Cubs Charities.
The Cubs describe the Convention thusly: “The 2017 Cubs Convention will celebrate the 2016 World Series Championship with players, coaches and alumni for a weekend of autograph opportunities, engaging panel sessions, traditional fan-favorite activities and much more. The 2016 World Series Trophy will be on display throughout Cubs Convention weekend.”
It’s always a great time, and that was before you could see the World freaking Series trophy. Hope to see many of you there!
