Hey you guys! I'm here!!! I'm late, as usual, but I am here and I am coming :cool: I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED THAT OZZIE IS THERE. This week is going to go by so slow!!!!! I've been lurking in the Hottest Red Wing forum, but I see why it's been slow - because you are all over here!! I'm staying at the state park, we will be coming in Friday afternoon/evening - leaving Ann Arbor around noon-ish, picking up the trailer we are borrowing at 2 PM in Clifford and heading up from there. I am all for a get together at the park Saturday night, I am SO excited to meet everyone! And Oh My Gosh, Konnan511, your "creepy" updates just make me laugh, so keep them coming!

I'll be lurking, I promise!

You know that Kira (Pat) is in campsite #215 right? Potluck on Saturday evening at Pat's! I am bringing s'more fixin's! LOL! Just look for the Spartan green Jeep Wrangler w/ a black cloth top w/ "I'm From Hockey Town" sticker on the left side back window and the "Arabian Sport Horse" sticker on the right hand back window. That will be us!

Maybe we can get a little group of us together and try to get our autographs on Saturday afternoon? I want to get Abby to sign a photo that hubby took and the same for Bertuzzi. I also want Abby to sign my Spartan Arabian Horse cap too! Pat is going to have Z sign the photo of our new puppy, "Hank." I can't wait! Friday afternoon can't come soon enough...

In light of the news about the team flying back to Detroit Saturday afternoon, Sheri and I won't be coming up. We only had Saturday afternoon and part of Sunday to try to get to some of the guys. It didn't really matter to me about autographs because I'm not a big collector but for her it was kind of pointless to drive up there when we'd probably miss most of the opportunities. I really couldn't afford this weekend anyway, so hopefully I'll be there next year :)

Everyone have a great time!!

I was wondering who all from LGW is going up to Red Wings Training Camp? I think it would be fun to put some names w/ faces and meet everyone. I know that my good friend Kira (and her hubby and dog Loki) will be there, Dimaline will be there, and Amy (I can't remember her name on LGW) will be there, but is anyone else going? Tell us how to recognize you! I will be wearing my #20 Robitaille jersey (I think I am the only Luc jersey) and will be w/ my hubby who wears his red Yzerman jersey.

I am hoping to get the autographs of Bertuzzi, Abdelkader, and a few others. Will also try to get Zetterberg to sign a photo of our 8 week old yellow Lab puppy, "Hank", whose papered name is Kingseeds Henrik Z.

We are heading up to TC on Friday afternoon after we get off of work in Grand Rapids at noon. Boones is our destination that night! We will be at the Saturday & Sunday Training Camp and meeting up w/ Kira Saturday evening at her campsite.

Looking forward to meeting everyone and having fun! GO WINGS!

I'll be there! Going up Friday morning & going home Tuesday. Can't wait to get up there and hopefully meet a lot of you!

I am so sorry you're not going, Dawn... that sucks. I was planning to live vicariously through you. ;) I hope you change your mind and boogie up there Friday night to see whoever you can Saturday morning.

Yes he is and they just had a baby in March.

Sorry Linda, my checkbook won't allow me to do it. I was only seeing it through this year because I had committed and Jean had to back out. Maybe I can save up for that Nashville game, I'd much rather us be able to get together for that one.

I'm going also.

Does anybody know at what bars the players tend to hang out while in town? My wife would like to sleep with one (or more) of them. Any help would be appreciated. But no judging!

Before we answer, is your wife an undercover Avs fan sent to give our boys cooties?

(just kidding)

I'll be there Saturday and Sunday!! So excited, my first training camp! I know it's a long shot, but if anyone has an extra ticket or advice for attaining a ticket for Sunday shoot me a PM. My buddy has decided to tag along, and now we are one short for Sunday. Thanks in advance!

You might be able to pull a standing room only ticket for Sunday. Sometimes you can get lucky that way.

They go to Bootleggers and Dillingers dwntown. I only ask about Ozzie being married because he's brought back women nearly every night he has been here so far and even asked if I could drive two of them back around 4am last week lol.

KIIIIIRRRAAAAA!!! We couldn't find you last night, you must have gone out to eat. We pulled in about 8 PM and set up wildly in the dark. At least it wasn't midnight :rolleyes: But we ARE here, we DID go this morning, and this IS the greatest thing ever!!!! We didn't see you and your husband at training camp this morning - I thought I saw a woman that looked a little like you but there was no Loki so I didn't go up to her.

I was totally looking forward to meeting you Dawn, but I understand why you didn't come. I heard a rumor Toast of Hockeytown is in November this year, maybe we can meet then?

Osgood wasn't around today, but I was on serious OZZIE WATCH all morning. :ph34r: There is this prospect named Oslund, that the coach kept calling out Ozzie! and I almost wanted to have a talk with him about how there's only room for one Oz in this town, but my husband talked me out of it. :lol:

Alright, heading down to Pat's site now to officially meet this crazy Pasha fan!!

We are in site #213 (there's something about that number 13) and we're here. If you see a grey Buick Park Avenue, we're there. Everyone is getting together about 6 tonight, so if you slide in, you're welcome. Were you the ones who came in late last night and set up their camp by car light??? If so, you're pretty much across from us!

Hey Konnan, no more creepy updates? I was really looking forward to them! I am assuming Hudler must have forgotten all his clothes or the rest of the guys stole them and that's why he was wearing those pink shorts. Please tell me he didn't actually MEAN to wear that. :rolleyes: And secondly, the woman that had the giant sign asking Osgood to marry her was NOT me (for the record, I am about as shy as they come) but I was sitting behind her, and saw Ozzie see it, get embarrased about it, and then avoid leaving the bench-side for the rest of the day. :censored: How am I ever gonna meet this guy?! :crybaby:

Creepy update: Bertuzzi and Kronwall are the only two that need daily wake-up calls and Holmstrom is the first Red Wing to breakfast each morning. This morning he asked me what time it opened and I said 7am and he said, with a huge grin, "I am really excited" lol. I always pictured him to be a tank, but he's actually pretty small.

Got to talk to Aaron Downey - he looks great! We asked him jokingly if he'd rather be working on the potato farm or be playing hockey, and of course, he said, "I'd rather be here." What a teddy bear!!! :)
