Even though the dates of training camp are officially somewhat in doubt still as I write this, there will still be some type of camp at some point before the season starts. (If there isn't then the whole season is already in doubt). Anyways though, who's making plans to go up to Latrobe, and when?

Do we want to try and get together for the night practice at the high school again if they have it?

I'd like to try and meet up with you guys there Matt! I just wish we had more concrete dates but a speed run to the Burgh is never out of the question. :cope:

I usually try to go every year, have't really talked much about it but if we do go that night practice was really cool especially for autographs!

I'm all for the night practice, I think that's a great time to go. It's not blazing hot outside since the practice is in the evening, and you can get player autographs much better than at St. Vincent. As soon as they release the training camp schedule we can start to plan for it. I would probably be able to stay 1 night as well but that's about it depending on what day we actually go up.

Keep this in mind everyone. With the lockout hopefully over in the next couple weeks, training camp will be starting shortly after.

Now that the lockout is over, training camp will open this week. I am ready to make the trek to Latrobe. Hopefully we will get a chance to see the team practice considering the time constraints they will be under this year.
That being said, who is planning on going up?

We, Gwyn, Gia and me, will be attending the Friday night session practice, we will be staying at my sisters place in 7 Springs , if any one wants to stay they are welcome. It's a little bit of a drive from Latrobe but ya can't beat the price lol... there is a grill ,hottub, and lots of space to sleep so keep it in mind...

Waiting in line for the autographs can be alittle nerve wracking, LOL. You basically have to make sure you get a good spot up against the fence or feel comfortable in pushing your way forward to get your stuff out for them to sign.
