Join the New Orleans Saints for a Saturday Picnic at Training Camp

In an attempt to make up for canceling their first training-camp event, the Greenbrier is hosting a picnic for fans to enjoy with the team this Saturday afternoon.

After canceling their first event of the 2014 New Orleans Saints training camp, which had been scheduled to happen on Wednesday, the Greenbrier is hosting another event this Saturday.

Anyone who purchases a wristband will be able to attend a Grand Opening ceremony Saturday afternoon, after which the Sports Performance Center will be open for touring.  The real draw, however, is the opportunity to picnic with the players and coaches after the afternoon practice session.

Quite a departure from the previously planned event, this Saturday's activities are available for an extremely reasonable $10 per person.  I don't know how much drinks and snacks will otherwise cost for fans attending this year's training camp, but the wristband seems worth the cost just for the picnic itself.  If attendees actually get to interact with the team, the negligible cost for this event is truly surprising.

Wristbands are available for preorder via phone, or for purchase at the training camp merchandise tent.  More information here.
