2019 Training Camp Thread

Recommended Posts

First off, anybody planning on going?

I took a friend's kid many years ago and didn't really enjoy it.  This was under Lovie if memory serves.   Couldn't get any good sight lines to anything and kids get bored fast.  I am thinking about going just because I am so jacked for season.  

I haven't decided if I want to go or not.  More and more people are posting videos of each practice and I could care less about autographs.  I also don't want to lose a good spot when I have to go to bathroom or eat if I go by myself.     

I just want to see their practice structure and get an idea of their size in person.  I'd much rather be in meetings and film review to be honest

Was just talking the other day w/my gf about going.  Been meaning to the last few years.

I'm thinking about family fest this year, mostly just to watch 3yr old daughter try and lay out a player.  She tackles 8 year olds with ease (and noise)

Technique, or no? :D

I wish I could get out and watch camp, but it ain't gonna happen...

Technique and motor. She wraps up really well but then has a climb move she'll pull out if they don't fall over right away.   I should probably stop her but I'm not going to.

I keep thinking about getting back for one but Midwestern humidity in late July make me sweat just thinking about it.

I did attend one in Platteville many moons ago and that was fun but it was also back when the '85 Bears were a gathering storm for that season and they were one crazy bunch.

I’ve been trying to make the time to go for years. Life tends to get in the way. May take my kids to family fest now that they’re old enough to appreciate it.

I work outside, avoid the area at all costs right now. It's either 55 and rain, or 88 and rain. Lost 3lbs yesterday from morning until 3, and that was the _cool_  day this week

I too work outside, cool day my rear end.  It was near 100 on the heat index until the storms started ripping in.

If I could upload a pic from Tuesday I would; it's through the windshield of my truck, which is covered in rain, and it shows the outside temp, which still reads 99.  

Wed was quite brisk by comparison

Yep, lots of bad storms back that way.  My Pop lives just west of Milwaukee and I have other family around Chicagoland and Downstate so I try to keep up with the weather in the Midwest as much as possible.

And even though I grew up in all that humidity after 35 years of living in Colorado I've become a ***** when it comes to high humidity summer and winter.  You can only get so naked in the summer and only wear so much winter clothing to fight it.

It's actually fairly humid here right now (70%) but it's only 75 degrees.  By later this afternoon when temps hit near 90 the humidity will be less than 50% plus we have a nice 8-10 mph breeze blowing in my windows.

So it's comfortable now without the A/C but by late afternoon I suspect it won't be.
