The 2021 Cubs Convention has already been canceled because of COVID-19 concerns.
The Chicago Tribune was the first to report the news of the fun event being canceled as the Cubs released the following statement:
"As we continue to navigate the many challenges and changes which have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, below is an important update regarding the 2021 Cubs Convention.
"We’ve made the decision to cancel the 2021 Cubs Convention originally scheduled to take place January 15-17 at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. With current public health guidelines limiting mass gatherings and unknown restrictions on hotels and events in the future, it’s become clear that planning and hosting an event of this magnitude is not practical at this time.
"While we are all disappointed we won’t be able to host our in-person event, we are exploring new and exciting ways to engage virtually. We will share additional details as soon as they are finalized in the coming months. We appreciate your continued support of our team and organization."
Terrible news because so many people enjoy going to the Cubs Convention each year getting to spend time up close and personal with some of their favorite players of the present and past.
