2017 US Log Rolling Open

From small to large events, Chicago Southland is ready to host your group in our area. Whether you need boardroom style meeting spaces or sporting facilities, we can help you find the perfect match for your needs. Here’s a look at a recent sporting event held in the Chicago Southland:

Sanctioned through the United States Log Rolling Association, the Chicago Southland hosted the 2nd annual United States Log Rolling Open by KRICK, LLC. in 2017. The Chicago Southland area was the first stop on the professional log rolling circuit.

With 21 competitors from across the United States, this event doubled in size in its second year. The farthest competitors arrived to the area from California and Florida. Near or far, all participants were ready to compete. Competitors were able to enjoy local restaurants, shopping and attractions during their downtime of competition.

During the tournament, the Chicago Southland was able to help bring a niche sport to a larger platform within the Chicago market. With 800 spectators taking part in the event, KRICK, LLC. brought in hotel rooms to the area. However, the overall impact to the region was much greater than the number of hotel guests. Chicago Southland was able to share KRICK’s unique event within the local market too.

In conjunction with the multiple media days, on-air media coverage included Fox News Chicago, WGN, WCIU and radio stations. The event was broadcasted four times throughout the week on Comcast SportsNet Chicago garnering 145,000 viewers. Combined with the television, newspaper and radio coverage, this event produced more than 12,482,618 earned media impressions for KRICK .Log Rolling Open with WGN

The Chicago Southland assisted the KRICK in garnering media coverage for its event and created significant awareness for the sport. Easily accessible throughout the Midwest area and regional airports, the Chicago Southland area is also central with its location in relation to the city of Chicago.

Let us assist you with coordinating site inspections, gaining media coverage for your event and helping attendees make the most of their time in the area.
