Practices 7/27-8/11. All Olivet practices start at 8:15am.

When are you going?

Nothing official yet, but I'm looking at being there 8/1 and 8/2. :)

Anybody else going?

I haven't been since they left Platteville. That was such a nice drive up there. I really liked that area. There was no traffic, rural highway driving, scenic. Just can't make myself drive to Olivet. Plus, when it was in Platteville, there was not a ton of peeps that went there.

It's official. Weather permitting, I'll be there 8/1 and 8/2. C'mon peeps. Let's do this. :-)

Ack, I'm undecided. I live about 80 minutes south of Bourbonnais, so it wouldn't be too bad of a jaunt. Maybe I'll see if my brother wants to go.

If you're there when I'm there, let's exchange a handshake. :)

I'm about the same distance north and actually will be taking some time off during camp so I might take the wife and kid up there once if they're game. I checked the website though and it seems there are a lot more restrictions than when I went 10+ years ago. Also, does anyone know how many practices there are during the day? When I went you were able to see the special team practices but I think they closed those down.

Only one practice a day now. Most start at 8:30am, but you can check the schedule link above on that.

I remember the line the first day of camp a few years back... yuck. That's giving me a little bit of pause.

Chalk that up to learning experience. NEVER go on the first day. Wait until they've put all the planning (with inevitably new coaches and players) into motion for at least a day. There's a reason I'm waiting until 8/1. Image
