Question Attending Training Camp - Any tips???

Folks,

Going to try and drive in on Thursday from DC area to take in camp on Friday/Sat (scrimmage).

Has anyone on the boards gone yet? Got any tips?

How hard is it to get the shuttle tickets?
What's the food/drink situation like and can you bring your own water?

Any info is appreciated!

My son is stoked to see the guys in action.

$5 shuttle tickets, the only way to get in. Can get them at the fairground, which can take cash or card. Food is like $7 for a 1/4 pound hamburger, chicken sandwich, etc. They sell beer as well, but its like $6-7 for a can. And also water is $3 and others is $4. They say you cant bring your own water, but if you have a baby put it in the bottom of the baby bag and they barely look in it. Make sure to get to the Friday day session, because I bet that one is the less people of the two. Price of the clothes stuff there is over expensive, like $40 for a shirt.

I actually didnt go today due to it being the weekend, and figured so many people would be there. Boy was I wrong. I may end up going to the 2nd practice still.

Oh, see who's getting the reps at Safety - know Byrd, Vaccaro, Bush and maybe Warren are in - Zimmerman, Ball and Sunseri - what's up with that?!?

And Haralson/Butler/Powell - who's taking first team snaps?!?

Vinnie has been getting second team reps, ahead of Warren from what I saw.

To be honest, looking back, I think Parys split time with someone but I cant remember who.

According to a couple of the beat writers it was Butler.
