  • Training Camp to continue taking place in Saskatoon


  • #2
    I was against this year’s ago as it’s a lot of extra logistical work but I’ve really changed my mind. Saskatoon does a good job, it’s important to be inclusive and the accommodations work really well. I mentioned it to RS a couple years back when I was in but I watched a practice at the Hilltops facility and was very impressed.

      SMF Field. I prefer it. Easy parking and access. Even have a concession stand that's open. The team also prefers it. Much better, softer field.

        Didn’t know the team prefers it, that’s cool. I liked the concession too. It had a really intimate feel with the trees and seclusion. I was a big fan and could really enjoy a full few days there.

          Parking is a nightmare at Griffith's.

            So is it getting moved from Griffiths to SMF permanently or just on intermittent days like now when there are scheduling conflicts?

              The wife and I went to a practice last year at SMF and found it quite easy to park, considering both of us are handicapped.

                No idea but mostly likely split again between the two places.

                      SMF is way handier for fan day at camp but the players stay in U of S dorms so that makes Griffiths better for day to day TC workouts

                        Is there a water fountain?

                          Yes. Side of the building near the changing rooms.

                            So with TC “continuing” in Saskatoon can we count on those locals to “continue” giving us great camp reports? The depth of information and insight that comes on this board during TC is impressive.

                              Nope. The locals are all converting to Stamps fans.
