You are right. Rockford is not in the running. Today however, the U.S. Olympic Committee leaders will meet to nominate a city in America to the Olympics as a potential host city. Here are the front runners.

According to NBC Chicago, the leaders of the U.S. Olympic Committee will meet today and they'll be deciding on more than a city to put in the running to host the 2024 Summer Games. They'll be picking a partner that will help shape their future.

Leaders from Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington made presentations last month and will not be present while the 15 USOC board members debate the pros and cons of each offering at their meeting inside the terminal at Denver International Airport.

I have the restaurant for them to meet in instead of an airport. How about The Olympic Tavern on North Main? Seems a natural fit to me.
