Default Training Camp: Beat the Crowd?

I am going with my wife to the training camp practice tomorrow. For those that have been to training camp this year, do you have any tips on what time would be best to arrive to beat the majority of the crowd? Maybe even be able to snag a bleacher seat?

Also, how is the autograph lottery working out?

TIA!

I've attended four camps this year. Arrived at the earliest at 6:50am, and could not get a bleacher seat. So the rest of the days I moseyed in around 7:30 and went straight to the field entrance. They open that up around 8 am and I just grab a decent standing room space along the endzone. YOu gotta be quick and don't think too much. see a space put your body in it.

I didn't try for autographs so I couldnt help you there.

I went Sunday. We got their at 5 am and it was already a couple of hundred people their!!! We were able to get some seats on the bleachers thankfully. If you're going to want to sit down I suggest you go get a seat first thing. Than while you or you're wife are checking out the other activitives yall can save each others seat. When I went, their wasn't any autograph lottery neither. Not sure if they're doing that anymore. The only game worth taking your time on is the reliant Nrg booth where you can spin the wheel for a chance to win some game tickets. Watt and Duane Brown came to sign autographs in the bleachers where we were at the end of practice as well. Hope you find this info helpful.

Sounds like I will not be attending any camps this year...


I remember the good ol' days when you could arrive at whatever time and still maybe get a bleacher seat....

Every year the crowd gets bigger and bigger. Pretty soon they're going to have to start having the practices in reliant...lol...

This too will be my last year going. Too many groupies and not enough spacing to accommodate 4000+. It's Not a fun time anymore. Especially in 100 degree weather.
