I suppose it's possible this move to Richmond is temporary while these renovations are done over the next couple of years
Any word on the type of renovations? I would imagine they will increase the size of the weight room, but what else?

It seems like Bruce Allen and Shanny have really convinced Dan Snyder to spend money on improving existing facilities. That's good news. Guess this means the Skins won't be moving their operations to DC or Maryland any time soon.

Not sure, what I've heard is field improvements, renovated offices for the staff and an "enhanced fan experience"

As a person that has been to many training camps it sounds more fun then it is.

What could that mean? Tours of the Ashburn office?

Great campus...its a wooded campus in an older, established neighborhoods of Richmond. Unique campus for sure. You got really good spots close to the campus, The Fan, Museum district, and Carytowne, for food and drank.

First off, I was mistaken the $25 million plus is part of the deal to keep the Skins in Virginia. Not the money that will be spent on renovations, though they are planning renovations/expansions

One thing I've heard is talk of a Redskins Museum (kind of like a little Hall of Fame but only for Redskins)

Does that mean they will start charging again for that "Fan Experience".

The "enhanced fan experience" means jello shots with Kyle.

Crap. I was hoping for a return to Carlisle.

I'll have to try to make it down this year before it becomes a stayover trip in 2013. I'm about 2 hours out now...soon to be about 5-6 hours I guess.

Idk where you live but it shouldn't be that bad. I'm about an hour away from Ashburn and 1 1/2 hours from Richmond. I would assume if you take the Beltway down to 95 and then down to Richmond it would only add a couple hours for you, so probably a 4 hour drive instead of 5-6.

And it's not busy since no one there actually goes to games.
