The details are available on the Cubs website:

The Cubs Convention is the annual kick-off to spring training and the upcoming season. The event provides fans with the opportunity to mingle with current and former Cubs players, broadcasters and front office executives.

The 25th Annual Cubs Convention will be held January 15 - 17, 2010.

The Convention will take place at the Hilton Chicago, located at 720 South Michigan Avenue. Book a room today by calling (312) 922-4400 and asking for the "Cubs Convention Rate." Fans who book their room under the convention rate will have the opportunity to purchase up to 4 weekend passes at a discounted rate of $20 per person.

The 25th annual Cubs Convention will be held from Friday, January 15 through Sunday, January 17, 2010. Each fan can purchase up to four weekend passes while they last. The convention pass is valid for entry during the entire convention weekend and costs $60.

    * Friday: 3:00-9:00pm
    * Saturday: 9:00am-midnight
    * Sunday: 9:00am-1:00pm

Check back in January for the Convention schedule and list of attendees.

This year will be the third Cubs Convention for me and my daughter, and we're definitely looking forward to it.  Thousands of fans will converge on South Michigan Avenue for three days (well, really just under 48 hours) of activities to get you ready for spring training (pitchers and catchers report in about 100 days) and opening day (152 days to go).

You can wait in line (for hours) to get autographs, participate in Q&A sessions with management, hear from Cubs players and generally have a good time.  Plenty of Cubs clothing and memorabilia will also be on sale.  There's even a party on Saturday night. 

Plus, the internet is "aTwitter" with talk of fan meetups during the convention.  So if you missed our fun Cubs haiku tweetup at Superdawg last month, you'll have another chance to put faces to the names of your favorite Cubs tweeters and bloggers. 

This winter Cubs fix
Will bring warmth to a fan's heart
You won't regret it
