Team Building

The Puttin Pantry mini golf event was a success!  I’m very pleased with the event… The entire team really enjoyed it and the staff that worked the event for Windy City was great.  It was a lot of fun… for me it was one of those things you see on paper, plan it out, but that just doesn’t do it justice until you experience it.

This was the best received team event we have had to date. I did not receive a single complaint from my team about anything – that has never happened! The teambuilding through competition was awesome – and with the variety of events everyone had something they enjoyed and it highlighted the behaviors needed for working as a team. Very easy to translate to business world.

ITW
Team Challenge

I got very positive feedback from people. It’s the first time we’ve done anything like this, so it added a new dimension to our meeting. Our international colleagues especially liked that we were up and moving around in the afternoon because it’s often difficult for them to stay focused due to time differences. Overall, it was a great experience. Thanks for efforts in helping us to coordinate.

Archer Daniels Midland

I just want to personally thank everyone at Windy City Fieldhouse for an excellent job at our Sales & Marketing meeting last week.

It reinforced to a lot of people that we are all responsible for the success of the business and how everyone needs to chip in and do their part.

Freudenberg Household Products

I just wanted to let you know that our group extremely enjoyed the activities planned by Windy City. Everything went over extremely well.

The group had a fabulous time! [Everyone] was fantastic! They were extremely pleasant and willing to accommodate any requests. Many of the new hires couldn’t believe that team building could actually be enjoyable, and not at all intimidating. We definitely enjoyed ourselves and are anxiously looking forward to another event.

BP

Thank you again to you and your staff for a wonderful time! All of the feedback we got was very positive and I believe I’m seeing a spillover effect of all of that camaraderie taking place around the office.

The VP mentioned that he absolutely loved the team challenge events. I worked with him for 10 years and he’s a high energy industrial engineer. The events kept him engaged and always thinking, strategizing. As far as everyone else, I’ve heard nothing but great comments. I’m sure you’ll be hearing from someone else in the group in the future.

Allstate

…great feedback from my team. Your team did an excellent job. We will definitely consider Windy City for future events and recommend you to others.

United Airlines

To be able to have fun and get to know the communication styles better of your co-workers is a tremendous step forward… From my perspective, this is the easiest event that I have ever had to organize. You made the process very simple and the fact that I could show up and participate with the team and not worry about details was wonderful. I would highly recommend your organization to anyone wanting to conduct a teambuilding event. Even though the games were fun, we were learning the core essence of teamwork without being in a stale classroom environment. So often when those are the only environments you have, there is a lot lost in translation!

Abbott Laboratories

The event couldn’t have gone better…everyone enjoyed it. I was very satisfied with your group and very happy with the outcome. Thanks so much for a wonderful team building event.

Pepsico

I want to send you this letter with a BIG THANK YOU! We had a great time! Everybody had a blast. We laughed so much during the event. The team spirit really got a boost with the event. I strongly recommend this to other companies and we will be back! This was the best event we have ever had!

Hewlett-Packard

The event went really well! Your team did a great job of organizing everyone and getting everyone really engaged in the activities. It was great to see a bunch of 30-60 year olds acting like competitive 12 year olds! Thanks for organizing this event for us in such a short amount of time.

TreeHouse Foods

I’ve heard only great things about the event. People loved the facility, the setup and I think they even liked our business presentation… I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you, Sue and the staff at WCF – it was really fantastic to have so many hands available to help (with boxes, assembling those chairs, lights on/off, etc.) and just great that they were mobilized so quickly… You were so responsive throughout the entire process

Grant Thornton LLP

The sessions we had immediately before Christmas definitely made an impression. Folks came back from the holidays refreshed and committed to a new start… I will keep WCF in my thoughts if I need more support in Chicago in the future–you guys did a great job in helping us address some real pain points.

PricewaterhouseCoopers
Deep Skills Team Challenge

The event went extremely well! Thanks to you and your team of folks for helping us to put together such a great event!! The feedback we have received from our teams has been overwhelmingly positive.

Thank you very much for creating such a dynamic and entertaining program for all of us to enjoy doing and learn from. We have heard from many employees how much they enjoyed the activities and were able to identify different lessons that were extrapolated through the actions of the challenges.

IDT

On behalf of the BP R&M Projects Community Team, I want to thank you and your staff who ran our “Mouse Trap Race Car” team building event last week… The emcee/facilitator did a great job keeping the folks working together (quite competitively I might add) and entertained throughout the event. The evening was a success as it achieved its goals of getting folks to work together towards a common objective.

I will definitely keep you guys in mind for future events and I am certain that others in the organization will as well.

Astellas
Team Challenge

The event went really well. Prior to the event, the 18th floor was super quiet. Nobody really knew each other and they pretty much kept to their individual groups. The day after the event we had a large meeting to run through the status of our new code and most of the previous night’s participants were there for that meeting so instead of it being a room full of strangers, everyone had pretty much met the night before so it was a great atmosphere. I also noticed that for the rest of the week, as people walked through the office, they were greeting each other and saying hello. And at the holiday party on Thursday night, there was a lot more mingling and conversation amongst our division. It seems that some folks made new friends. So I would say the event was perfect. The office feels more like it used to. Thanks again to you and your folks. It was exactly what we needed.

STRATA
Off Site Team Challenge

Taking my staff out of the work environment to perform out of the ordinary tasks was a success! It was the perfect platform for giving them an opportunity to problem solve, work collaboratively and build trusting relationships. Team members were able to gain skills that allowed them to identify barriers to accomplishing goals and come up with ways to overcome those obstacles. The skills that they practiced from participating in fun and challenging events can also easily be transferred into the workplace. Additionally, it made them aware of the resources that each team member brings to the table, and the added bonus was that it was all done in the spirit of fun!

Regina R.

Robert W. Baird & Co.
Team Challenge

…I know I sound a bit over the top, but I could not have been more skeptical about hosting a team building event with my first company (Diamond). Windy City Fieldhouse changed my attitude entirely. I worried immensely that it would come off “campy.” But because of [WCF’s] vast experience, they are able to suggest the right activity for the mission you are trying to accomplish. I trust WCF entirely.

Sagence
Team Challenge

Just want to thank you and your team for an excellent [Team Challenge] workshop – everyone enjoyed it – There was lots of laughter coming from their room at all times 🙂 – please pass on to [your team], they did an excellent job!
Look forward to working with you again

What can I say but “Wow!” You put on such an amazing event for the Ounce. The praises continue to roll in. We are so grateful for your careful planning and perfect execution of our corporate barbecue. From the moment I stepped onto the grounds, I witnessed WCF staff busy at work. You seemed to know exactly what needed to be done. You made certain our needs were met, and you were right there to offer assistance with whatever task was at hand. You are PROS at what you do, and we take our hats off to you! You truly took care of us and our families. The children were engaged every second. Parents had fun, but were completely relaxed at the same time. And staff members who didn’t bring children or spouses also had a ball!

Ounce of Prevention Fund

Please extend Echo’s big thanks to your fantastic team. Everyone had a great time and your staff is courteous and extremely helpful – just as great as you said they would be.

I am sending many thanks to your company for a successful Niagara LaSalle Corporation Picnic. I have been flooded with calls and emails this morning expressing the fun and success of the company picnic. I have heard nothing but good things.

Citi/Sears Credit Services

This year’s corporate picnic was by far our best event of the year. Not only did our employees have chance to relax and have fun together, but our families were able to mingle as well. The event was extremely easy to plan and gave our employees a chance to become a closer team outside of the work environment.

Premier

We’ve gotten great feedback! I’ve heard good reports from the Interns up to the CFO. Our entire leadership team was involved in the late softball game and really enjoyed themselves! It really was a great event. Your staff was very helpful and cheerful. I had a great time because we didn’t have to worry about ANYTHING. That’s truly the sign of a good party for me. Thanks for worrying for us!

OWP/P

I can’t thank you enough for managing such a fun-filled and relaxing day for our employees…and especially for me! It was the first year I was actually able to enjoy the picnic, and now that I have had a taste of it, I can assure you it won’t be the last. Rest assured that we’ll be contacting Windy City next year to handle our 2009 Picnic.

Make no mistake, I will be telling my other friends/business acquaintances about you all!

We received so many compliments from the food, to the games, to the overall atmosphere that Windy City provided. Thank you so much.

Everyone had an amazing time. The event was awesome I am so glad that we decided to have it outside inspite of the weather. Your team did a great job, the food was great, we had a blast playing softball/volleyball, and it was a really good event. We definitely want to do something like this on an annual basis. Special thanks to you for getting all this set up. We received the digital pictures and it reminded us of how much we enjoyed ourselves. We look forward to doing business with you soon.

Thank you so much for a wonderful first time experience, and I can guarantee you that it will not be our last.

Bank of America

Thanks for a great picnic! The company consensus is that it was “awesome”! There was something for everyone. It was a first class company summer picnic. The company “heads” enjoyed themselves as there were no decisions to make during the event except which food to eat and how many times they wanted to do the Velcro wall. We let you guys do all the work and it allowed all employees to truly relax and have fun. You came thru on all your promises. Without a doubt, this company picnic was the perfect way to spend a summer day downtown with co-workers and family.

Infinium Capital Management

Last year was the first time we tried an evening picnic, and I have to say it turned out better than imagined! You’re not in the heat of high noon, it’s the perfect time! Our employees loved it so much they insisted we do it again this summer, even though we usually don’t do the same thing 2 years in a row! Once again, it was great! And the employees at WCF are so enthusiastic and helpful too! An evening picnic is a great idea! We loved it!

I want to thank you and your fantastic staff for all your help in making our Thronton Tomasetti company party a huge success! Scott, the onsite staff member was so helpful in making sure everything went smoothly. He answered all of my questions without hesitation and was very friendly. Your other staff that was there to facilitate the games were so friendly and helpful as well, and this will easily go down in our books as the most successful summer party to date! Thank you so much for all your hard work. I will highly recommend you to everyone I know!

Wilson Sporting Goods

A special thanks to the Windy City Fieldhouse staff. The team was very energetic and engaging, keeping everyone involved as much as the individuals chose to be so. From the moment we arrived, smiling faces greeted us at the gate. The emcee was amazing with participants of all ages. Many attendees enjoyed simply walking over to see what was going on when they heard the music and directions over the speaker. He nicely tried to bring the families together for activities, kept the momentum going adding fun and excitement, and was engaging/motivating. Many asked how he kept going! The food was great and we were lucky with comfortable weather. The buzz continued in the office on Monday which was definitely indicative of a successful event and a tribute to the organizers. Thanks for offering a great, well-planned and delivered, summer event.

Hitachi High Technologies America, Inc.

I just wanted to say thank you. First of all, you guys did an AMAZING job! I got nothing but great feedback from our employees about how much fun they had! It was a really great day!!

Kudos on a job well done!

I wanted to drop a quick note and say I am very pleased with the way our picnic went. Stephanie and Andria were great! Anything I had asked for or needed they were happy to do…[the emcee] running the kids games was fantastic! He was enthusiastic and my kids, and all of our other employees’ kids loved him as well. The DJ was great. He played what our crowd was looking for so that was fantastic.
Food was great as was the presentation!!
I’ve had a few people ask for your company’s info so hopefully you’ll get some referral business.
Thank you for a great time!

AUM

The outing went really well! The employees had a great time, and I think we all wished we had another hour there. I wanted to also tell you that it was great having the two ladies in red there to facilitate the games. They kept the games running smoothly and saved me from having to encourage people to get involved. Everything was really great – food, games, staff, etc!

The Savo Group

I wanted to reach out to you both to tell you what a fantastic job your onsite team did last Friday. Jimmy was amazing; he touched base with me several times throughout the day and always made himself available if I had any questions/requests. Your entire team was super friendly and professional. Numerous people (from our company) told me they felt that the entire event had a much better vibe than in years [past]. So, hats off to your team!
Thank you both for all your help with this event. Our team said this was, hands down, the best picnic to date.

I had a good time, kids had a GREAT TIME! Some of the feedback we got:

  • Food was DELICIOUS – burgers and hot dogs are usually ok, these were high quality and delicious
  • Staff was EXCELLENT – especially the guy who played with the kids. OMG he has such good, positive energy – he was the star of the event.
  • Weather was GREAT and then it was BAD….obviously not something we can control, but kids had fun anyway
  • Space was AWESOME – a true hidden gem.

Thank you for all of your help.

Summer Interactive BBQ

WCF does it all. As the main contact/organizer for our group, I was most comfortable and confident letting WCF run the show. Their vision and attentiveness made for a fun, worry free day for both myself and my colleagues. In addition to their positive, helpful, flexible “service with a smile” attitude, the WCF team are warm, friendly, and extremely accommodating. The added touches of frisbees, sunscreen, bug repellent, etc was a great surprise! We received loads of positive feedback from our staff. On behalf of ASA, thanks for a fun filled day!

ASA

I can’t tell you how great it was to work with her through every detail of this event! She is truly so good at her job! She is prompt, responsive, and easy to approach with questions/ concerns. Having her expertise helped us in making the right choices for this venue.

Abbott Laboratories

Windy City Fieldhouse did a great job creating a teambuilding event that not only brought our management team together, but also forced them to expand their horizons in a fun and exciting way as they raced all over Chicago in the spirit of competition.

Thanks to the entire team at Windy City Fieldhouse. It has been a long time since this team has had a team gathering and when they did we never had this much participation.

We will definitely be looking to your expertise again soon to participate in another one of your great team building events.

Abbott Laboratories

The event was flawlessly executed. I was personally there to oversee the event and I have received nothing but rave reviews. It was fun and well executed.

Integrys Energy Group, Inc.

It’s hard to describe how much this is going to mean to the families we serve. Sometimes Big Business gets a bad rap…but this is just incredible generosity. Not only financially, but with your time.

Aspire of Illinois to participants of a charity Holiday Scavenger Hunt

The way you and your team incorporated our theme was tremendous, the upfront discussions and planning was terrific. Everyone enjoyed the “tasks”, felt challenged and ended with a better understanding of how fun can be incorporated into our work week. Overall the event was a huge success and we have set a new “benchmark” for future events.

Maple Leaf Foods

Everyone who participated really enjoyed themselves and seemed to feel that it was a perfect bonding experience. I know personally I would not have made as many close ties with the people in my group as I did because of the scavenger hunt. From the sales pitch to the completion of the program everything ran smoothly. Everyone that I dealt with from your organization was friendly, professional, and quick to help. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the entire experience. Thank you so much for helping me to pull off a great evening event.

Pennsylvania Office of the Attorney General

All of us at TouchTunes want to thank you for such a successful event. I had many skeptical participants in the beginning and at the end of the day everyone just could not say enough about the great day they had. Everyone really got to know each other and really had to work together to achieve their goals. This was a great accomplishment for us since many of these people do not work together on a day-to-day basis. You guys really came through for us and we really appreciate it.

Touch Tunes

WOW! Thank you so much for helping me put together our ‘Mission Impossible’ event with WCF. Your staff were fantastic spy guides and they made the event so great for my group. Please share my highest compliments with them. Let’s do this again next year!

University of Dreams

My team had a fantastic time at our outing. Everyone is still talking about it…I was told that I will not be able to top this outing. I have to be honest with you, I don’t think I will be able to either!!!! Thank you for a wonderful time and giving us a tour of Michigan Avenue. We had people in from California and they were excited to be in the city. This was something that everyone was able to be involved in and participate.

Supervalu

I think you guys did a wonderful job on the event. Everyone had such a wonderful time and had great things to say about the event. The event was something that we all wanted to do again and there was even more talk about it today. Thanks for your assistance in creating this fun-filled event for us.

Navistar, Inc.

Thank you for helping me plan a wonderful summer outing! Your team certainly exceeded my expectations and delivered a great outing that I was so fortunate to be in charge of for my department. I have received overwhelming responses of how much fun my co-workers had at our summer outing. The Scavenger Hunt that you put together was extremely creative and clever! Certainly a day of adventure and teamwork, along with a little competition made the day’s activities amusing for everyone involved. Thank you for a fabulous event!

Kraft Foods

We had so much fun! The feedback has been really good – so much so that the head of the group we did it for is recommending it to the Executive Committee for their departments to do as well. All of the coordinators did such a fantastic job and we had so much fun! Thanks again! Windy City Fieldhouse is fantastic!

Thanks for everything. The event was a huge success and the main topic at dinner. Everyone loved finding items for a charity. It really added value to the whole program. Thank you.

American Academy of Dermatology
Charity Scavenger Hunt for a Cause

I wanted to let you know that my group had so much fun on the Taste of Windy City Scavenger Hunt. They said it was the best team building event they had ever been on. Your people are great and made it such a memorable event. Everyone said they wished I had booked you for a longer period of time. You can imagine their surprise when I told them that you custom designed our event for the 4 hour period since your program usually runs 2-3 hours. The champagne toast on the Hancock Observatory and the Hot Dog topping sites were among the teams’ favorite spots. Most of our people have not spent a significant amount of time in Chicago so they thoughtthis venue provided an exceptionally fun way to get to see the city. We also enjoyed a very dramatic, edge of the seat ending since our teams are so highly competitive. Laughs and a good time were had by all. It was a pleasure working with the wonderful people at Windy City Fieldhouse. Thanks once again for your thoughtfulness and for making our event a memory our people will hold dear for years to come.

GE Energy
Taste of Windy City Scavenger Hunt

WOW! We had a great time. This event was enjoyed by all! It was a pleasure to work with you and the Windy City Fieldhouse team. Our emcee and all of the spy guides were fantastic. You and your team have a great attitude and are extremely easy to work with. I will gladly recommend your company to as many people as I can as it is very beneficial for any team who wants to have a good time and build team spirit at the same time. Look forward to working with you again and thank you so much for a memorable event.

Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers

Our group had a great time during the scavenger hunt last Thursday. As a leader planning the event as part of a full day of activities, I really appreciate how your team was able to take charge once we linked up with you. Everything was well done and your team was easy to work with throughout. Most important of all, everyone had a really good time! Please pass that on to your team. Thanks.

Target

The feedback I have received from our group has been overwhelmingly positive. Everybody had fun and your team provided us with a great Chicago experience! After traveling and being in a closed meeting space all afternoon, the [“Mission Impossible” Scavenger Hunt] was a lot of fun and we got to enjoy a beautiful Chicago evening as well! We will gladly pass your information to others who may be looking for a fun, teambuilding experience in Chicago.

Procter and Gamble

Everyone had a GREAT time and from being here from IL, we don’t frequent Chicago as much as we should and this was a GREAT way to explore the city so I LOVED IT!! Thank you for all of your help and also the team that was there that day, it was a nice start to our day and we cannot wait to do it for future events.

Fortune 500 Company

I have to say we really had a great time at the event last night. Everything turned out great! Our folks enjoyed playing the games and having the more interactive event, rather than the sit down, formal dinner. Thank you for recommending this venue to us, it really turned out wonderful! I have not heard a single complaint. Thank you for all your help in getting this organized and I will definitely recommend Windy City to anyone looking to do something a bit different.

Stephan Company

The most outstanding characteristic about the evening was the friendly and personable staff that looked like they were having fun too! …I think they did a wonderful job of corralling and getting things going. A wonderful evening was had by all. Thank you for your time, effort and patience. Of course we will think of you for all future events.

The Interactive Reception was a great event for motivating more than 1,000 employees for the upcoming sales year. By the end of the event employees carried a renewed sense of team unity and vision. From the valet parking to the incredible entertainment and catering – the event was awesome. The attention to detail and flexibility in meeting our needs will bring us back next year. Thanks again!

CDW

THANK YOU for a terrific event!!! It was the highlight of our two-day meeting, and multiple people have said that it was the most fun they’ve ever had as a department.

Everything was taken care of, I had nothing to do or worry about, and they were so friendly and really engaged our team in a fun evening. People have already been raving about it at the office today, but I’m going to pass a note along to our meeting and events team to be sure they know of our outstanding experience… I can’t wait to work with you guys again!!

McDonald’s

Wanted to express my sincerest thanks and kudos to your entire team for Friday’s event at Wrigley Field. They were hardworking, tireless & truely entertaining and engaging for both the kids and the parents. All stations were executed perfectly & the set-up was very smooth despite our limited time. Special thanks go to Brandon for being on his toes and really working in tandem with me, Josh & Shane- my partners in crime all day, I would NEVER have been able to do that without them…

They had a blast…very competitive. This group in the past did Sox suite and dinner cruise, so this worked out the best. Much more interaction… [the WCF staff] were awesome and took care of everyone. Thanks!

Zebra Technologies

I really don’t think “Thank You” can express what a wonderful job you and your staff did at helping make our Social a complete success. I thought it was great last year, but this year it was “Over the top”. The students had nothing but praise in expressing what a great time they had. Please convey this message to your staff.
This was the perfect opportunity for the different teams to interact and get know each other outside the heat of competition. It worked!!! I was so pleased to see them talking, playing games, and dancing together. This is what it is all about. I’m still in awe at how well it turned out.

First Competition

I wanted to take a moment and thank you both for our Fun Day Event at Howells and Hood yesterday. The food was delicious, the games were great and the service was amazing. Both Stephanie and Brigitte handled everything seamlessly, were extremely professional and were delightful to work with. Our employees loved the venue, food, service and enjoyed themselves thoroughly! Thanks again for making our job so easy and enjoyable for everyone!

GE Capital

The evening event was terrific. Stephanie did an excellent job to ensure that everything ran smoothly and she helped out in many ways that went above and beyond. The games were a success, the dealers friendly and knowledgeable, the DJ was great, photo booth fun, raffles fun and overall a successful event. It is rare that attendees hang in until the end of a company event and in this case, the majority of the attendees stayed to play and network. Our Executive Vice President and host seemed quite pleased that his staff enjoyed themselves and got to know each other by playing together at the game tables around the room. Thank you and the staff for a terrific evening.

Motorola Solutions

The event was great! Everything from the music to the casino tables was absolutely perfect. Jimmy did a wonderful job and I couldn’t be any happier. He even stepped in and helped me with our raffle, which was much appreciated… I’ve received nothing but positive feedback and truly appreciate all of your help throughout this process. This holiday party was such a hit I’m already nervous thinking about how to top it next year! Thanks again for everything. It was a pleasure working with you.

Paylocity
Interactive Reception

It was absolutely PERFECT. Your staff members were great—helpful and available, but not intrusive… I always feel like the proof of a successful event is when people linger and linger, which is exactly what they did last night. Thank you for your flexibility as we put things together over the holidays—we had just the right amount of activities and space. I will be sure to pass along your info to the other admins and event planners in our group.

I want to personally thank you and your staff for doing such a great job with the charity fundraiser Dream Halloween. The event was a major production with well over 1,000 attendees, a dozen caterers, literally trainloads of equipment/props/toys and over four days of setup. I found the facility to be very easy to use. With the help of your accommodating staff, we were able to transform your enormous venue into a Halloween fantasy for our young guests as well as also being able to create very sophisticated areas for our VIP event sponsors and guests.

The event was great. We had a blast and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Your team at the event was great to work with and the dealers were very patient and fun.

WCF was a great company to work with. They planned everything from location, meeting room, parking, audio, directions, maps, digital pictures, breakfast, lunch, drinks and activities. Everything went really smoothly and I’d definitely use them, again. Additionally, you can use them in the suburbs or at an off site location – they will cater to you.

Weekly Groups

We have been playing at Windy City for several years now.  WCF is convenient and easy for our group with such hectic schedules, it is great to have a set time each week for my friends to get together and play.

Paolo R.

On behalf of the Philippine Volleyball League (PVL), we would like to express our deepest gratitude for accommodating our league at the Windy City Fieldhouse.  Your faculty has been very helpful, friendly and gave great customer service.  It has been a pleasure working with you this summer.

Commissioner of PVL

For the past eight years, our group has always looked forward to Monday nights at WCF.  Not only does the facility give us a great place to play, our group is guaranteed to have one night a week to relax and have fun outside of the workplace.

Matt S.

I have been renting from Windy City for a few years now and I have had nothing but great experiences with them.  Unlike other facilities, they are always willing to go the extra mile and help whether it be with setting up for games or accommodating specific schedule requests.  I use Windy City for basically every indoor sport imaginable: Basketball, Volleyball, Floor Hockey and Dodgeball.  They are prepared, keep everything running on time and just generally a pleasure to work with.  I fully endorse Windy City Fieldhouse.

Leagues

We love everything about the experience of playing at the Fieldhouse.  It gives our group a chance to spend time together while also working out and having a blast.  It is a perfect break from a regular health club.

Michael J.

I just wanted to drop you a line to compliment a couple of the girls that work for you.  I have a basketball group and a floor hockey team at Windy City and I’ve been working with Jocelyn and Amanda.  They both have been very helpful and accommodating whenever I need anything or have a special request.  I just wanted to let you know that they’re doing a great job and I (along with the guys in my group) really appreciate it.

David Z.

Thanks Amanda you have been a great help and the team looks forward to playing in the fall league.

Our 18th Annual Ray Meyer March of Dimes 3-on-3 Basketball Classic was a success due in part to our new location, Windy City Fieldhouse.  Our planning committee, staff, sponsors and attendees were very happy with the facilities.  We were impressed with the helpfulness of the staff and look forward to holding the event at Windy City Fieldhouse again in 2006.

We could not have asked for a better place to hold our first ever Hoops for the Hill 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament. The staff lent their expertise throughout the whole planning process and really worked with us to put together a great event.

I had my son’s birthday party here and the staff was amazing!  They kept everyone busy and happy with well organized activities for the kids and were very helpful with set up and execution of the food part of the birthday party.  We’ll definitely be going back again!

Jen S.
Parent

Thank you to you and your team at WCF for a fantastic event!  Your staff were fantastic – they truly could not have been more helpful, thoughtful or prepared!  They were great with the kids and us.  This was our first time hosting a birthday party for our daughter and friends and family raved that it was fun for both parents and kids and the “perfect space” for a birthday party!  We’ll definitely be back for future parties – we’re hooked!  Many many thanks!

Kara G.

Keep up the great work.  Your planners and staff were a true pleasure to work with.  I had informally polled participants from the party and I received feedback such as “cool place to hold an event”; “the food was out of this world”; “the staff really seemed to enjoy their jobs”; “love the batting cage”…This event was successfull due to the the planner’s and staff’s unbelievable attention to detail.  Thank you.

On her husband's surprise birthday party

We’ve hosted a previous party here and have been to WCF for other parties as well.  After my son’s recent birthday party was over, I asked him how he thought it went  and he told me it was the best day of his life!

Gigi L.
Parent

I just wanted to thank you for all your help!  The party was AWESOME!  The hosts were so wonderful and the kids had such a great time!  I have a feeling that you will have a few more birthday parties from within this group (the parents that came to the party were saying they also wanted to have their child’s party there).

Just wanted you to know that Ariana’s party was a major success!  EVERYONE had so much fun!  The staff was INCREDIBLE and made all the difference in the world.  The staff ran the party so well and was always a step ahead of me (which I appreciated) to keep everything flowing.  We barely did anything…but socialize!!!  Thank you!  We will be back…birthdays, summer camps…we’ll be back!

My husband and I want to THANK YOU for all your help in helping us with our son’s 4th birthday party.  Before I met your staff, I was little nervous just thinking about what can go wrong at the set up, with games/activities, and if our guest’s kids would have a good time.  But your staff were very courteous and went the extra mile to make it all possible and smooth for us.  We were very impressed to see how cool and fun they were with the kids.  All of my guests called me and said they had a great time and that your staff did a phenomenal job engaging kids in fun games and activities.  As a result, the parents, for the first time at a kids’ birthday party, sat back, relaxed, ate, and enjoyed their conversation with other parents.  For that, we want to thank you and your staff for giving us the time and opportunity to enjoy our party…It was awesome!!  GREAT JOB!!  We will be back soon…THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!

Party was a hit!  Windy City in… Menomonee out!  😉  Thanks for your help.  The whole team was great!

My son Jordan celebrated his 6th birthday this past Sunday at Windy City Fieldhouse.  I wanted to make sure that I took the time to let you know what a fantastic job that your staff did throughout the entire process – from the planning stages, the day of execution to the clean up afterwards… Alexis did a great job helping me plan a perfect event… [The staff] was helpful and professional throughout the entire event all the way through helping me pack up my car and not having me clean up the facility at all..
Please know that this is the third birthday party we have thrown for our son over the years and your team by far blew the other experiences out of the water.  I understand why Chicago Magazine voted you tops for Children’s Parties.
The last two days Jordan’s classmates have been coming up to me at school telling me how much fun they had (and I have received several emails from parents).  Thank you again for employing such a great staff and making it such a special day for my son.

Bar/Bat Mitzvahs

Everything was great. You guys did a tremendous job keeping those kids busy and entertained…The kids said it was the best Bar Mitzvah they had been to. Thanks for everything.

Joan, David & Joey E.
Parents and Child

Mitchell’s Bar Mitzvah certainly met your objective: you and your staff worked with us to ensure that a day after, a year after and 20 years after our celebration, we and our guests will remember our event as a phenomenal experience that surpassed our expectations and those of our guests. And best of all, you allowed us to enjoy the celebration hassle-free as WCF setup the event, organized activities and cleaned up after the celebration. Windy City exceeded our expectations and created lasting memories for us, our family and guests. I look forward to having other events at Windy City in the future.

Irene and Brian C.
Parents

Thank you so very much for making the B’nai Mitzvah a fabulous affair. We were very pleased with Windy City and hope to plan another function with you in due time. You were always professional, courteous and flexible as well. All of our guests and children had an amazing time. Our phone is still ringing.

Sandy and Mark L.
Parents

The party was a great success! My daughter had a wonderful time – so what more could I ask for? Personally, I loved the fact that this party was so easy on me.

Sheri M.
Parent

The party was a smash! Many of our guests commented to us that they had a great time, and that the facilities, the food, and everything else was excellent. We also agreed. We left very pleased with the way the party turned out. It both met and even exceeded our expectations. Many of our guests commented that this was an excellent place to have the Bar Mitzvah party. The kids appeared to be having a great time, and even the adults said they truly enjoyed themselves. Thanks again for helping us to coordinate the event and make this successful! We know and expect to have fond memories of this occasion.

Harriet and Irv S.
Parents

Everyone said the event was fantastic! The adults appreciated the ability to relax and have a great time while observing the kids having their fun participating in the activities. Everyone also commented on how great the food was for the event…both kids and adults. One comment I kept hearing throughout the night was that this event “was going to be a hard act to follow”. Thank you for a terrific time and a terrific event!

Gary S.
Parent, on his son’s Bar Mitzvah

The event went great! Everything was very smooth. The client loved it all and your staff was a pleasure to work with. Alexis and Meredith are fantastic and were a pleasure to work with. I hope that we have the opportunity to all work together again in the future as well!

Blue Plate Catering

I am writing this letter to let you know how great an experience we had at my son’s Bar Mitzvah. The great thing about having his Bar Mitzvah at Windy City Fieldhouse is the various events that can be planned, numerous different spaces that can be used and the flexibility that was offered to us in making our decisions. From the moment we booked the event I felt we were in competent, confident hands. Most importantly it was an event that my son is still beaming about.

Merle B.
Parent

From my first phone call to the sales staff, it was smooth sailing. Everything from the catering, to the cocktail hour, to the table linens, to the balloons and centerpieces to the selection of great team sports for the kids (of all ages) to the fabulous DJ…the staff at Windy City was the FINEST I have ever worked with. No details were left undone. The facility is run like a fine oiled machine. We were guests at our own party – and most of all, our son and his friends said it was the “best Bar Mitzvah EVER!” I would recommend this venue again in a HEARTBEAT! THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

Debbie R.
Parent

Thank you to both of you for all your help and hardwork for our daughter’s bat mitzvah. Everyone said they loved the sports and it was a huge success! Our daughter said it was fantastic when I asked her… Kids have been telling her that it was the best party they have been too! Thank you again so much!!!

Cheryl K.
Parent

Just want to tell you how many calls I’ve received today, parents saying this was the best Bar Mitzvah EVER!!! Thanks for ALL your help!

Saturday was a roaring success! Everyone loved the food and the photo booth, and the music was a crowd pleaser for young & old alike. People really couldn’t say enough good things about the whole event. Thank you for all your help!

Nancy L.

I wanted to take the time to let you know how happy we were with our event planner, Alexis Kniaz. This is the second event we have had with Windy City Fieldhouse and we couldn’t be happier.
Our first event, three years ago, was a build-a-bike workshop at our children’s B’nei Mitzvah. This was an amazing event that changed the way our family feels about Bar/Bat Mitzvahs.
Alexis worked tirelessly with us early on, throwing out idea after idea, but, as we had set the bar pretty high with our (previous charitable giving) event, nothing seemed like it would stack up. Then, when we were just about to throw in the towel and settle for a run of the mill dance party, we finally agreed on a theme. From that time forward, as our idea took shape, Alexis and I worked together to bring it to life… She has an easygoing, yet vibrant, persona, making her great to work with. The result was that I got to do the event just the way I wanted to, but she took care of all the details so I could work on other aspects of the Bar Mitzvah that I needed to. At no time did I not trust that everything would be taken care of.
This culminated in our fabulous casino themed charity party, where all winnings were donated by us, but in our guests names, to worthy charities. Our adult guests gambled, our son’s teenage friends danced, and a great time was had by all. We had the best of all worlds.
Our thanks goes out to Alexis for all her hard work in making this party all we wanted it to be.

Organization is not my strong point so throughout the process of planning my son’s Bar Mitzvah I had several panic attack moments. I dreamed the invitations didn’t go out. I worried the buses wouldn’t show. But I NEVER ONCE worried about the scavenger hunt or any other part of the event that Alexis handled. She was absolutely amazing. She took care of everything. She went above and beyond in every way. She was constantly thinking about ways to improve the event from the actual scavenger hunt to the food. I cannot thank her enough for our wonderful day!

Bar Mitzvah
Parent

I am by nature a skeptical person but my event with WCF has made me a true believer. So many parents called to thank me and tell me how much their children loved the scavenger hunt. My son is quiet and it never occurred to us that he would have the best Bar Mitzvah party of the year. WCF took care or every detail. They were flexible, creative, responsive and went above and beyond the call of duty. I really wanted an event that would reflect his personality. WCF delivered that and I just got to relax and enjoy. They made sure to tailor the event to us in every way – from the addition of books as a bonus on the scavenger hunt to the location of the reception and the food we served.

I wanted to thank you for everything you did to make our celebration so wonderful. You are great at your job and you are a really special person too. We feel lucky that we found you from that random phone call three years ago.

Bar Mitzvah

I want to thank you for helping me put together such a wonderful event. You made the process fun, easy and amazing. It all came together so nicely. Honestly, the entire day and night exceeded my expectations. I cannot tell you how many messages I have received about how fun and amazing everything was. So, thank you, thank you and thank you again!!!! You truly were a pleasure to work with! …. a big thank you to you and your crew. Everyone thought it was the coolest Bar Mitzvah every! Mission accomplished!

Youth Programs – Sports Academy

Just wanted to let you know that my boys said it was the best sports class they ever been to. They really liked Coach Ryan. [They] would not stopping talking about it.

WCSA

I am thrilled that I have found such a fantastic program for my son! The coach to participant ratio is small enough that every participant receives the appropriate amount of one-on-one attention…he has a great time during each and every session. It is all he talks about anymore!

Jeanne H.
Parent

The WCSA is a great outlet for energetic and enthusiastic children. They come home exhausted and can’t wait to go back!

Lori L.
Parent

Coach Steve’s philosophy behind WCSA is what is so great about the programs. It’s not about winning – it’s about teamwork and sportsmanship. The games are all fair and equal among all the kids – in every sport each child gets to play every position.

Jill K.
Parent

I believe the Sports Academy is the best after school program my child has been in. The kids get great exercise while they learn about all different types of sports.

Mimi S.
Parent

My son just finished his first class series at the Fieldhouse. We just wanted to let you know how fantastic the coach has been with the class! After taking many of these classes in the city (East Bank, Little Gym, Jump Ahead, etc), he is hands down the most enthusiastic, patient, and kind-hearted teacher we’ve worked with. We hope to have the opportunity to work with him again at Windy City!

Kristina A.
Parent

I was at Anthony’s first basketball class yesterday – he loved it and I loved it! You guys do a great job! I also attended a Birthday party at your facility a few weeks ago – I was so impressed! We’re going to have Anthony’s party there in November

I just wanted to write a note to say that my son had a really great time at the Windy City Field house tiny tots sports camp this past week. He greatly enjoyed all the sports and other fun activities. He would come home every night and tell us about the sports and how well did- ” I was the fastest kid” or ” I was the captain of my soccer team.” Thanks to you and your staff for all the effort and enthusiasm you put into the camp programming!

WCSA Parent
Summer Camp at WCF

The people at Windy City Fieldhouse have always been sooo helpful and I can’t thank you enough for that! Also, I must say that Ryan (my kids current baseball coach) is literally the best coach ever. He has the most amazing energy and knows how to communicate with the kids so well.

WCSA
Parent

[Our child] attended the Tiny Tots Sports mini-camp in late December and loved it! Thank you, Coaches! You guys were awesome!

I just wanted to acknowledge how amazing Coach Ryan is. Rarely have I seen someone as patient, sweet, and engaged as him, and he is a huge reason why [my son] loves coming to WCF every week.
