    Drew Dourghtey said they will be available next week. Also, They actually did come out about this time last year.

    I know it feels like it's been longer than last year, but last year they announced on July 14th IIRC.

    I'm not going this year. Last year was way too much trouble after our first playoffs. I'd imagine it'll be even crazier this year.

    The weekdays mornings are not to bad. The night time practices and the weekends are nuts.

    As for the getting the tickets, the last few years have they have been available online, and it has been easy to get them.

    Yeah, the mothership will put up a link and you "apply" for them on line. Then you print out your copy. As I recall, you could reserve up to four seats (maybe more). Hopefully that'll start soon. Tell you what, weekends and nights get maxed out real quick. I take off one or two weekday mornings so as not to get caught in the weekend/night mad house.

    "easy" is a pretty relative term here. Last year I basically sat on the PC refreshing the Texans site trying to nab a weekend day and weekday. Took me about 6 hours just to get those two days printed out and ready to rock and roll.

    I'm with ya, man. I went every year up until last season. Waaay too crowded for that space. I like all Texans fans, but I'd rather not be shoulder to shoulder with you. Ha

    I might go to a weekday morning practice if I'm off, but not going to make it a point like I used to.

    Yep, went to some practices back in the day when it'd just be a couple guys standing around watching the one-on-ones between a DLineman and Olineman and you were so close you could almost reach out and touch them. But then had the opportunity to go to a practice in the last couple years and that same scene was now a very large crowd. So not as enjoyable with the easy access as the first few years, but that's the price of success I guess.

    Yea , my bro and I have been going for the past 4 - 5 years and at first it was nice to go and enjoy the hardworking atmosphere . It felt like a private practice with about 100 or 200 there. It's not the same ,but I just love going and knowing football season's here !!!

    Crowded?

    It's not even a relative term.

    Just Google largest crowd for NFL training camp for the true meaning of there term.

    41,000 plus is crowded.

    I've read about crowds of 20K for many sessions of certain teams through the years, it makes us look like minor league. :worldpeace:

    It's still relative. putting 10 people on a basketball court isn't crowded. Putting 10 people in a bathroom stall is crowded. There is not enough room or seats for the people that attend the Texans training camp.

    Don't go all TPN on me, LOL :worldpeace:

    But honestly, for me, going to TC is to see certain players to try to gauge their progress. I've never sat down at any session.

    It's not like, hey, I want a vacation off the beaten track; this thing is becoming too touristy for me.

    :worldpeace:

    Today must be World Peace Day, haha.

    As a season ticket holder. It only allowed me to get 4 passes for one date. In the email it specified 4 passes for each date. Oh well. I can only brave those crowds once anyway.
