Bears move fan convention to Soldier Field, push back to June

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The Bears are moving the site of their annual fan convention to Soldier Field.

The event, which was a sellout last spring for the first time, had been held at the Hilton and Towers since its inception. Now, the franchise will have more time to put a disappointing season behind before the rah-rah for the 2008 campaign begins.

The team said there will be more room for events at the stadium.

The event, which typically was held in March or early April, has been pushed back to June 7-8. This should make it easier for the organization to attract players on the current roster to the event. This will fall during the team's OTA's, which essentially require players to be at Halas Hall four days per week.

It will also mean 2008 draft picks will be able to attend. Previous conventions were always held prior to the April draft.

That's cool about meeting the draft picks...doubt I'll get the chance, tho

I'm gonna come dressed as Elvis in my #18 jersey...and I'm bringing my band...the questionaires...and they're gonna be dressed in jerseys too.... Rashan Salaam, Curt Enis, Stan Thomas, ATrain, DTerrell, Cade and Rex (sorry Maury), other assorted QB #'s, Benson, ...and the guy in the orange jersey will be #20...Jones on the back and 'nice tackle, Adam' on the front...
