Nope, doesn't cost anything to get in just bring your lawn chairs, blankets to sit on, cooler for drinks, etc cuz it gets really hot.

It's in Latrobe, PA at Saint Vincent college; you on the grass and along the hill beside where the players practice and then afterwards some of them will come over and sign autographs.

Just got back, it was a great time. I got to meet and hang out with Nova and his better half today. It was a pleasure to meet you both! Thanks again for saving us with the bottle of water :lol: As of now they probably still have about an hour or so to go before they get home.

I'm dog tired but we got a ton of great pics that I'll load up tomorrow. Judging by the camera that Nova was using I'd say he got a bunch of great ones too.

Here is a question about training camp... When my wife and I took our son, we noticed a long line over the hill leading down to field. Once practice started that long line headed down the hill and they encircled the practice field and watched from the sidelines. How did they get to do that and is it an every practice thing?

That is probably the fans that get there early to get the autographs as the players come out and make their way down to the field...that is where we were...:yellowthumb:

When we were there they let fans down on the sidelines, but they all had stickers on to say they could be down there... did they all just show up early to get on the field or was it family members only or did they have to pay a small price???? I know they wouldn't let you on the actual field, but they let a good chunk hang out on the sidelines while everyone else was on the hill side or in the stands... so what made them so special that they were able to be on the sidelines???
