2009 Prospect Camp

Postby strocklen083 » Thu Jul 09, 2009 6:59 am

Any of you unemployed/college students/independently wealthy people make it to Mills yet for the "Pro Orientation Camp"? I was shocked as hell to see KSDK actually sent someone there to cover it. They looked to have a pretty solid crowd for a Wednesday in July.

BTW, why did they move this thing back to the Mills? How is that convenient for anyone with a job to go to? Seriously? I guess it's more fiscally responsible to do it there rather than incur the costs associated with holding it at the arena?

By a long shot. The one thing that sucks is events like Saturday's scrimmage where there'll be 3x the capacity limit.

I think that's why they put the warning that only the first 1500 will be admitted to the facility. Anything beyond that and it becomes a fire/public safety hazard. So if anyone's planning on going, I'd say get there early.

Unfortunately I can't make it. Going out of town for the weekend. Although I'm not sure I would have wanted to drive up there anyhow. It's a major hassle to get there if you're coming from anywhere south of 44.

Yeah, I am an unemployed, college student who would be there everyday probably but I am in Columbia until Saturday, so hopefully I can make it for the scrimmage.
