Hey everybody- I did a search on this topic and didn't see anything come up, so I wanted to create a topic, so as to hopefully centralize info about the 2018 Training Camp dates.

 

Has anyone heard anything about when these dates will be released, and if/when they will have a practice at New Era Field?

 

My friend and I live about 3 hours from SJF and around this time, we start to get antsy for the dates to be released, so we can start making hotel reservations. This year, we're hoping for a weekday morning practice, followed the next day by a practice at New Era Field. Last year's practice there was the first time I have ever been in the stadium, and I really hope they have another so we can go again.

 

On a side note, we will be sticking with our reliable Buffalo Brew Pub for wings, but also will be trying Bar Bill. We've done Duffs and Anchor in years past, too. 

 

Mod edit: actual schedule now available later in thread!!!

A lot of WNY local media has Bar Bill wings rated very highly.  I cannot speak from experience but the amount of good press must bode well for the product.

......due to demand, it's getting to be hit or miss with many of the longstanding quality WNY wing institutes.

Understood and agreed.  Often depends who's the chef that day, found this a few years ago with a flagship establishment.

I'm confused.  These are last years dates.  2017.

Well at least the link I provided should eventually show 2018s dates

Does anyone have any idea when the schedule is typically released? We're 6 or 7 weeks away from them moving facilities out to Rochester, it has to be soon, in the next week or two, right?

I suggest you update the thread title to TC dates so we don’t get a duplicate thread.  

I guess I'm not sure what you mean. The title of the thread literally is "Training Camp 2018 Dates".

I thought it was a question.  My bad.

Tried to find training camp dates the other day, they are nowhere to be found. Must be classified, part of the process.

Really? That's dedication. I can literally walk there and I've never been.

Only 11 practices at SJF, and tickets are required for 5 of those.

 

The practice at NEF was fun last year except for the thunder storm that delayed it.

 

Not sure what's up with "theme days".

One theme day will be 'Vox Populi':  Only fans in attendance at SJF will vote by secret ballot as to who will start at QB on opening day.  256,519 votes for Peterman will implicate Russian hackers, bots, and trolls...and Burple Bull.

Is Astrobot any relation to Spacely Space Sprockets' Uniblab?

Even though Sal says there are no night practices at SJF, the first one is at 5:30

Can someone explain how/where you get tickets for ticketed practices?  (I thought historically the night practices were the ticketed ones - but doesn't seem to be the case)
