    The San Diego Chargers are pleased to invite some of our most passionate observers – the members of the Union Tribune and Chargers Message Board – to attend the team’s closed-to-the-public practice at 4 p.m. on Thursday, August 9th. After practice is over, at around 6:00 pm, we will bring you all together with Jim Steeg and Mark Fabiani for a no-holds-barred discussion about stadium issues and anything else on your minds. We hope you will share your ideas with us, and we look forward to offering you a forthright, firsthand perspective about the team’s ongoing stadium efforts.

    Because of space limitations at Charger Park during training camp (most of the meeting rooms are usually in use until late in the evening), we must limit the number of attendees to the first 30 (15 from each forum) active posters who respond. The spots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you’re interested, please respond right away by sending a email to webmaster@chargers.nfl.com. Please indicate username, post count and forum you post on.

    Once we have your confirmation we will send you details on parking and access to the Chargers facility by end of day Monday, Aug. 6.

    I hope you get picked. It's too bad that they don't just extend the invitation to all Charger fans and sites.

    Yeah, you know what, Ray's right. F them. They should include ALL Charger forums, not just their 2 homer sites.

    The real issue is the size of the meeting rooms, from what I've read. Joel has since made an amendment to his original post stating that he is trying to get more fans invited. Ultimately, some folks will get left out, other wise it wouldn't be "special.":glare:

    well, they better let you in. I think it shouldn't be first reply anyway. It's like, I'd love to go, but I would most likely sit there like a moron. If you're going to run a charger website, you prolly deserve it a little more. I mean, I'd put Ray at the top of the list and all the guys that run the podcast and forums.

    You know, I don't care that they excluded us and other Charger forums. I'm just glad they are doing something special for the dedicated Charger fans for a change. Big props to Joel Bolt and the Chargers.

    If I could attend I'd still include my post counts from all Charger forums I post at in my email, not just chargers.com or the UT board. But that's just me.

    You forgot to mention the P.S. at the end of the invite, "P.S. Keep the trumpet dude at bay. AJ has a restraining order on him and he needs to keep 100 feet from his arse at all times."

    Yeah no kidding. You sort of dodged a bullet but anyway I am glad one of our minions of death will be there to ask the ballsy questions.

    I will get mine ready. :tup:
