    Re: TRAINING CAMP DATES

    I'm traveling to Minny for the pre-season game on Friday August 10th against St. Louis.  I was wondering if I should bother leaving Wednesday morning rather than leaving on Friday?  Are the practices fun to watch?  Would there be any chance of me getting an autograph if I were there for the day?  Should 3 a day dairy kids day frighten me?  Hopefully someone could help with this dumb Canadian’s questions.

    First off, the game is played at the dome in Minneapolis & the training camp is in Mankato. That's about 80 miles from Minneapolis.

    The 3-A-Day dairy kids day shouldn't frighten you, unless you're lactose intolerant.


    I thought the practices were fun to watch while I was there, but other than that, there isn't a whole lot that goes on in between. They have a building where you can buy soveigners & get autographs, but those signing then are usually past players.

    They actually set up a time after the practices when some of the current players sign. You'll have to watch for a schedule of who & when.

    Some will sign if you wait by the fence as they go from the practice field back to the dorms, but very few will sign as they head out to the field for practice.

    Kids usually get preference, from what I've seen.

    You don't think Mankato has any other value?

    Hey CAJUNVIKE.... Sorry about the caps to you and all my fellow Vikes Fans.

    really didn't know this was an issue that would be addressed. My ignorance has been corrected.

    Thanks also for the warm welcome.
