Never been to Chicago, but I've always wanted to go.

Not in February or March you don't.

I don't recall is being like that the past few years.  Maybe this new guy in charge is not doing well.

Brian, they contacted me a few years back, when Tony M had to cancel as a presenter.  I told them I was glad to fill in and gave them a choice of a variety of topics that I felt I had experience and competency in.  Certainly I had spoken on these topics before.  They said, "No thanks."  And when I reached out to their contact about filling an Atlanta clinic (that had TBDs listed on their site), I got no response.  So I'm not sure of how they go about finding youth coaches who want to clinic on youth football.  In their clinics that I've attended, it's usually a high school coach who's willing to clinic on youth football.

Not so bad in March but February can be a real PIA.   Hell it snows in April at times up there.

Scott, March 1-3 is still February in Chicago, regardless of what it says on the calendar.

Never been to Chicago, but I've always wanted to go.

Right now with a baby, a stay at home wife, and a teaching gig without a coaching spot attached (which is about to change) it's hard to find the time and money for a clinic, but I do want to hit up some clinics this spring...

I will likely hit up the ones at Tennessee and maybe Carson-Newman this year, since they're relatively in my backyard.

Coach Turner at C-N is one of my all time favorite clinic speakers.

I'm saying that you have a lot more insulation on you, than I do my friend.  ;)

He's a treasure.  No doubt.  I've met him a few times over the years when he came out to scout players I was coaching in HS.  Great guy.  He used to be a HS HC in my neck of the woods before returning to C-N to be their OC and now HC.
