Re: Who's going to camp?

^ You come on the board for the first time and want adivce but call the rules weak, nice.

Ok with that said definitly leave late to get there traffic is a breeze. Bring a sweat shirt or sweater Ashburn is cold this time of the year.

If you want autograhs either flash your boobs or yell "me me me me, over here" like a million times definitly gets the players motovied to sign for you.

Good luck and have a great time!

Re: Who's going to camp?

Yeah I'm going tomorrow as well. I was planning on going anyways but now that I got the Red Cross VIP passes I plan on making the most of them. I donated blood today and they were handin out the Red Cross passes like hotcakes so I grabbed a couple. I usually try to make it to TC at least once every season and I'd rather go during a weekday but because of my new job I gotta do it on the weekend. I might do fan appreciation day too if I feel like putting up with the massive hassle of having 25,000 other fans everywhere lolol.

Hi I just joined this site for my husband cause I am surprsing him and got a pass for this Sunday! We have never been and I was wondering some tips on what I can bring and what we should do! I was going to create my own post but I have to have 25 pts. (weak) to do so.......

I was thinking cooler & chairs but not sure if like that?

Also any tips on autographs would be helpful! Help me be a "cool" wife this weekend!!!!
I'll actually give you some real advice for going to camp. It's going to be HOT. Bring some water and be prepared to be in the glaring sun for a few hours. White devils like me need about 3 bottles of sunscreen.

As far as a cooler or chairs -- I wouldn't waste your time. Training camp isn't exactly a relaxed atmosphere. Unless it's a small portable cooler, it probably won't be worth your time. Personally, I like to just bring a bottle or two of water and that's it. There's really no where to 'sit' that you'll be able to see anything -- unless you get there REALLY early.

From what I can tell, you can choose a good view of practice, or a good spot on the autograph line if you get there early. When you first come onto the field, stay a bit to the left if autographs are important to you. That's where the players pass by to enter/exit the facility for practice. If you stand there, you're sure to get some action from whatever players feel like signing things. If watching practice is more important, stay more straight or to the right.

You can still get autographs to the right, and you can still see practice from the left. However, each has its advantages.

44Deezel, just go to the skins site and print out an invitation. I don't believe they are necessary, but I do it every year to be safe. It's free and only take a moment, so worth the peace of mind.

Those of you going on Sunday, expect a big crowd. Weekends are somewhat brutal. Get there early.

Sunday was awesome! It rained some early but once that ended it was really nice. So glad the weather held up. I have 68 pics but it would be painful to upload all of them 1 by 1.

How fortunate for you, that was awesome! But what was really awesome, is that I can see myself in your video at the 1:44 mark. LMAO! I'm in the background, in the white t-shirt just to the right of the dude in blue (middle of screen). I have to say, there is one guy that is there EVERY YEAR, yelling the entire time... calling out player stats, telling them what they are doing wrong, etc. I can only imagine the player are so tired of him being there day after day after day; I know my sons and I certainly are!

HAIL!

Re: Who's going to camp?

This was the 8th year in a row I have taken my 3 sons to camp.



As we do every year, we walked away with, not only great memories, but a few more autographed memoriabilia to add to our individual collections. My personal tradition is to every year buy a new hat at the shop, get it signed, and in turn I will wear that hat for the season. This year I managed to get (from left to right) Coach Zorn, McIntosh, and Campbell. I love it!



My #2 son also managed to get his stitched #17 jersey autographed:
