HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS PALATINE

The Ballroom is HUGE! If you remember the space in the bunker last year, this is even bigger than that!

We'll get a bunch of 3x6 and 3x8 tables to use... and yes, regular size tables so you can sit comfortablely for all 6 games. Toss in

a big screen/projector, mic and PA system and we are all set to run a kick ass Chaos Cup there!

The special rate we are getting is $79 per night. Normally it's $89. If there are ANY conflicts with this price from the hotel,

please let me know directly and if you find it cheaper online as well, let me know and I will try to get them to match it.

GUEST SERVICES

LOUNGE
http://zlurpcast.com/JP/Palatine6.jpg
You get access to this nice lounge area which is open 24/7, which I can only imagine will consist of lots of nighttime gaming. With

that said, I don't think they will want alcohol in that area, but you could always go up to your rooms for that.

BREAKFAST
You get free hot breakfast. Not just a continental roll at other places... eggs and other good selections each morning for breakfast

is included

AIRPORT SHUTTLE
For $28, up to 4 people together can get a ride to O'Hare airport thru their partnered taxi service.... or you can get picked up from

the airport and brought back to the hotel. It's a one way charge, but split that amongst 4 people and it's pretty cheap.

Remember..you want O'Hare Airport. NOT Midway Airport.

AREA SHUTTLE
The hotel gives guests complimentary shuttle to and from about 40 different restaurants and local attractions. I'll list all the

places on http://ChaosCup.com soon, but really you've got a good 5 mile radius to and from anywhere you want totally free.

PARKING
If you did drive, the parking is free. So no worries there.

WORKOUT/POOL
The hotel is actually connected to a World Gym to those guests who want to work off all the sitting around while they are there.

Also there is a huge pool you can use. Basketball and Volleyball too. All included, just use your room key to get in.

INTERNET
Free wired internet inside all rooms. Free Wi-Fi in lounge, lobby, and our ballroom.

HIGHWAYS
It's located right off of 53/290 and Dundee Rd. People do can 290 East(South) and connect to 90 East into city.

TRAIN
Hotel is a few miles from Palatine Metra, Arlington Park Metra, and Wheeling Metra. Just contact the hotel for a shuttle to and from

the train station.

ATTRACTIONS IN AREA
Durty Nellies (bands play there), Arlington Racetrack, Medieval Times, Woodfield, Allstate Arena... and the new Rivers Casino is not

too far away. I'll post full list on the Chaos Cup website.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALTERNATE ROOMS
If you are trying to be on an extra tight budget, there is a Motel Six right across the street. I do not know the rate, but if it's

not too much less than the $79 at Holiday Inn Express, then I'd consider just staying at our Chaos Cup hotel and enjoying the company

of some fellow out of towners!

CUBS GAME
Last year, some of us went to Wrigley Field the Friday before Chaos Cup.
http://zlurpcast.com/category/episodes/ ... t-wrigley/

It was a blast and we plan on doing it again this year. I'll put information for that together in a separate post. It's fun to all

sit near each other and drink some shitty beer together!

WEBSITE
If you are having ANY concerns about coming or not, just have a look at the 2011 Photo's section of the http://ChaosCup.com website.

Last year was the largest Chaos Cup ever and this year will be even bigger! With side games like Skaven-Ger Hunt, Triple Skulls,

Guess the Dice, and Blood Bowl Poker, there will always be something going on that weekend.

Hey guys.... Main Guy Jonny P here, organizer of the US Major, the Chaos Cup.

This year WILL be the biggest and baddest of them all!

Nurgle King has graciously sponsored all mutations this year.... plus you can get custom dice, coins, patches, counters, t-shirts, and pitches all celebrating Chaos Cup 2012.

Don't forget about our side games: Skaven-Ger Hunt, Triple Skulls, Guess the Dice, and a surprise game so secret even the guy doing it doesn't know what it is!

Last year saw coaches from several states and also Canada and the Netherlands.... this year I already know of some UK guys who have booked!

Book hotel and flights now and save some dough... lots to see in Chicago....and awesome food! :mrgreen:

We just had a successful Headbangers Ball event yesterday at the bunker with 24 coaches.

The NAF hosts monthly tournaments in the midwest.

Check out http://zlurpeebowl.com/Forums/index.php for more details.

Don't worry, Blood Bowl is alive and kicking....with or without GW game support!
