    Re: Chicago Tournament next year?

    Thanksgiving weekend, at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates. The Sears Centre is about 30 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, with no public transportation to speak of that gets anywhere close. Easy access to the tollway, though, that being I-90.

    Re: Chicago Tournament next year?

    You can get to Hoffman Estates from Des Moines in about 4.5 hours, maybe less depending on how fast you drive.

    I take I-80 to the East/West Tollway (88). Then take I-39 North to Rockford, then I-90 East straight into Hoffman Estates. Very easy to find the place.

    Re: Chicago Tournament next year?

    that will be a good tournament. Notre Dame is good and Northwestern was getting some votes earlier in the year.

    Round Robin? or jst 2 game bracket

    Is that date a fact? That would suck. I was looking forward to going but no way I could do it that weekend.

    Re: Chicago Tournament next year?

    Interesting, my wife wants to go to this, might be a good time. Are there places to stay by there? I really don't like Chicago proper all that much so I wouldn't mind just staying up there outside of the city.
