:helmet: I am going to Trainning Camp on Tuesday Aug. 4th. It will be -by the way, the first time I will be filing a report for S.A. This year I will be filing a report after every home Steeler Game, like S.A. has a reporter at each game. Hope you follow my reports all season long.:tt02:

Mom just called me and said she wants to take a 'day-trip' to watch practice. This is the same woman who wouldn't have driven 3 minutes much less 3 hours a few years ago for anything football related. Since I got her interested in the Steelers she's become a monster! :lol: I guess we may be making it this year after all. Most likely Saturday the 8th. :yellowthumb:

Anybody else going to be there that day?

Lloyd, what day are you planning on going up there? I know my daughter wants to go again so if we can swing going up the same day that you are we could follow each other up there, maybe grab something to eat on the way home or something too?

That would be cool Matt. :yellowthumb: We're going on Saturday the 8th. Haven't decided yet what time we're leaving York but we'd like to be there about an hour before they let you on the campus. If that day works for you let us know and we can make arrangements.

I'm still up in the air as to if we're going this weekend or next weekend. Our friends are having a birthday party and their annual summer lua in the evening so Im not sure we'll have enough time to do both. If we don't then we'll be coming up 1 day next week to check it out. I'll know more by later in the week.

I finally got my passes to the training camp game I won...there is no game BUT they are VIP PASSES !! Woo hoo !!:tt02::tt02:
The itinerary is
park in lot A, some what reserved I believe
2:00 p.m Registration and reception at the Rodgers Center
2:30 View 2008 STEELERS highlight DVD
3:15 FIELD level viewing of practice and STEELERS experience
5:15 Dinner at Rodgers Center

I will be taking pictures and I will post up them. I'm hoping this will somehow lead me to getting some autograph but the letter doesn't really say anything about that... no big deal because I think the rest of the day will be worthwhile!!

My son, my wife, and I went to Steelers' Training Camp on Tuesday and on Thursday this past week, with a tour of Heinz Stadium in between. We had a great time, Charlie got a few autographs, and I got a few nice photos. Best of all, the autographs really hiked up my son's training camp enthusiasm. He is already talking about going back next year.

I added some photos from Tuesday to the Training Camp photos section, but did not see a "2009" gallery started. I will add some from Thursday later, once i get them uploaded to my computer from my camera.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-18-2009, 08:34 AM
The weather man didn't disappoint, it was hotter than all get out. We sat just to the left of the tent down on the field so we had some shade and were able to see all of the action pretty up close. We didn't get any autographs though, not too many players stuck around to sign and the ones that did mostly just signed for the VIP's that were down along the field. Ben went over near the bleachers to sign for awhile. Hines was down catching passes out of the ball machine for about 20 minutes after practice was over but he never came over to sign.

All in all it was fun just like always so it was worth the trip. Daughter took about 80 pictures but they are on her phone lol so I have to wait till she gets them downloaded.

Once practice started it had a good upbeat pace to it which was nice to see. Ben looked good yesterday from what I could tell and overall the offense seemed to be getting the best of the defense in most of the drills. Troy broke up a pass to Hines that got the crowd going and Holmes made a real nice over the shoulder catch down the sidelines too.
