In a closed practice Sunday, the Chicago Bears wrapped up practice yesterday morning.  Just a day after a registered 43,000 downloaded tickets to Bears Camp were reported @BearsPR tweeted out the final number of actually attendies, 9,141 fans made the trip to Bourbonnais Saturday.  It was the highest attendance of the year and one of the largest days of attendance in the past five years.

As camp broke, as per tradition dating back to 2004 when then Head Coach Lovie Smith mandated his staff switch from golf carts to bikes, Bears Coaches gave away bikes used during their two weeks in Bourbonnais to people here in Kankakee County including teenagers and veterans. Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet and the Illinois State Police helped choose the recipients.
