When our friend Andrea from the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (RACVB) visits the WROK Morning Show each Friday, she often mentions that with another weekend comes another several thousand visitors to Rockford's sports facilities.

Weekend after weekend, our area's outstanding maintained and managed sports fields attract visitors from all over the country for various tournaments. You've got soccer, softball, football, golf, and more going on. And with those tournaments, you've got a whole lot of visitors coming to the Rockford area to stay in our hotels, eat in our restaurants, fill up at our gas stations, and basically inject a whole lot of cash into our local economy. The nicer we all are to our weekend guests will mean more folks will be bringing their money to Rockford.
