Anyone got tips on training camp in Metairie? Been several times to Jackson, but never N.O.

Where your white jersey, it will be hot as hell out there. Please take notes and report back. Upload photos too if you can. Keep reminding Shockey to stay hydrated. :D

Thanks for the info. Got lots of sharpies, new football for more autographs and our sunscreen! Should we bring chairs or is there seating like at Millsaps?

The Saints outdoor practice fields have bleachers along the Airline Drive side. I'd get there early if you want to be sure get a spot. I'm not sure if they allow you to bring in chairs. By the way, here's a link to the practice schedule for those that may not have seen it yet.

Thanks Dan! We're from big Laf, too! Can't wait to make the trip. We do it each year for our grandsons birthday and always have a blast! Looking forward to being in N.O. rather than Jackson!

I'm going this year for the first time, and I'm bringing my eight year old son. Do the players typically sign autographs after each practice?

They've signed after every practice we've been to. (four years worth!) Not all players stay out to sign autographs, but most of them do. It's best to try and make more than one practice if you can, just to make sure you get everybody!

Will we have any SR.com "reporters" for those of us that are displaced from home? :)
Yes, I will attending several sessions. Just not opening weekend, due to surgery :(.
