Sorry if this has been posted previously. Searching for "Training Camp" doesn't give very succinct results.
I'm driving in from out of town to attend TC for the first time. I'm hoping I can benefit from some of your previous experience
If the practice officially starts at 10am, and the bus ride is 10 mintues, how early should we arrive at The Landing? Will there be a lot of traffic? How long should I budget from downtown Seattle at that time of day?
The TC website says that there will be buses leaving every 30 minutes until the end of practice. I think I also read that people hang out for autographs and to rub elbows with the players. How long will practice last? (We're going to one that begins at 10am) How long should I budget for hanging out afterward and to get back to The Landing? Any feel for traffic then?
I've read that sitting higher up on the hill will give a better view but you feel more removed. Is it more crowded higher or lower? ...better experience from anyone that's been there?
I plan on bringing collapsable chairs and a small cooler. From what I've see, that's allowed as long as there's no glass or alcohol, correct? Will chairs block the view of people behind us? ... should we use the on-the-ground/bleacher chairs instead? ... or a blanket?
Any other advice?
Thanks in advance
