Team Chicago send-off party and uniform pick up

More than 125 Chicagoans are headed to Gay Games Cologne and Team Chicago held a send-off and uniform pick-up party at @mosphere in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood yesterday (Saturday 24 July).

In addition to uniform pickup and a raffle, @mosphere played the Chicago 2006 DVD on its screens throughout the bar. (The DVD is still available at www.wolfevideo.com and sales benefit the FGG.)

On hand were some of Chicago's Gay Games scholarship recipients, including two women supported by Amigas Latinas, Chicago's lesbian latina organization. Also on hand were some former organizers of Chicago 2006, and three of the four Federation of Gay Games Board members who are from Chicago: Co-President Kurt Dahl, VP of Membership Paul Oostenbrug, and Technology Officers Israel Wright. Big thanks to Charlie and the staff at @mosphere for a great time and all of the Team Chicago volunteers, especially Team Chicago President Kyle Chang, who helped make it a great event.

Safe travels to everyone on their way to Cologne for the 2010 Gay Games.
