Do you still need training camp tickets. I have some that am sure I won't use. Call me if you don't have any yet. 713-298-8862 Julius

I might take you up on that. They caught me off gaurd today when they told me to pick 2 dates. I wasn't sure my work schedule due to shift work and then going on turnaround in another month or so. I kinda just guessed at a couple dates "I thought I was off".

Default Re: TC tickets FUBARED as usual

I walked into the Wachovia on 1960 yesterday and waited for my turn with the associate in charge of TC tix.

It was a painless process.... the only information I was reluctant to give out was my phone number, since the fine print at the bottom of the sheet indicated that "Only Wachovia and their affiliates will contact you by this number", or something to that effect.

The associate told me that I could have a choice of any 12 tickets available. I asked if I could have 4 tickets to the three weekend morning camps, and he gave them to me. In fact, he even gave me an extra ticket to the 28th camp by accident.

The long drive down 1960 paid off! I hope you guys have some more luck.

Thumbs up Re: TC tickets FUBARED as usual

FYI - From a reply email I got regarding this mess...

"The Training Camp hotline has been changed and it now informs the public that autographs are open to fans of all ages pending on team schedule."

Sadly, too early. Let's say gates open at 3. People arrive as early as noon to wait outside the gate. The first 50 people to the autograph line get a red ticket.

The first "X" many people in the autograph line (meaning they never moved from their spot during the entire training camp) will get ________ (insert good players here) while the rest of the people will get people who likely won't make the team.

Not that this is a bad process, but essentially if you want Andre, or Mario, or Green's (etc.) plan on waiting in line (2 different lines) for about 6 hours total. If you have multiple people in your party, you can take turns waiting in the second line (the autograph line), one person holds the spot, one person watches camp, swap.

Last year we were given a time to get the tickets for the autographs. When we got there the tickets were already given out. This went on for all the practices. People were very angry.

Yes, I had to fill out a form but I was also handed the entire box of tickets and told to take what I wanted as the lady was helping a gentleman.

I took 6 to each practice as I thought that was the rule - silly me.

If anyone wants tickets - just pm me your address and I will send them. I'm only planning on attending the 28th pm and 29th am at this point - it is a long drive.
Received today. Wow. I sincerely appreciated this. There are some really good people on this board. I'm really glad to be a part of this board and certainly will return the favor once I'm capable.

Man, I feel sorry for you guys. To attend the Eagles TC you get in the car, drive to Lehigh U., park the car, walk to the practice field and watch practice.

That's it. No tickets, no forms. Just a lot of people, kids and a dog or two running around.

You guys deserve better.

No, we're grateful. Many teams have their TC's at remote locations AND/OR charge!! I like having it in town and for free There are just issues every year with getting the free tickets.

There's limited seating at the practice facility (~2500). If they didn't control attendance by requiring tickets there would probably be more people show up than there are seats, aka chaos. I've been to every public tc session and most, if not all have 'sold out.'

This isn't like the old days with the Oilers when we used to drive to San Marcos or San Antonio to watch training camp and there were 30 people in the stands.

Ok, I see the need for tickets. Didn't know you had seats.
Someone said something about charging for tickets for TC. I am not good at finding links, but I think about 5 years ago, Snyder of the Redsikns charged $10 to get into the TC.
He was shocked to find when he did so, scouts from Dallas, the Giants and the Eagles were among the fans. Found out that they had a right to attend if they had to pay to get in, but were barred if the camp was free.
