Windy City Times article by Ross Forman

From the article:

The Outgames attracted about 4,500 sporting participants and another 1,000 for the human rights conference. The total was thousands below pre-event predictions, but certainly not for a lack of trying, dedication, effort, marketing, promotion or pizzazz from the Elbaek-led local organizing committee.

Very simply, the worldwide financial crisis put a chokehold on attendance.
