    A week after the draft, the Chargers will hold their annual minicamp. The Chargers team always enjoys having their fans at Chargers Park for minicamp, but unfortunately fans won’t be able to attend this year’s practices.

    In mid-February, Chargers Park suffered significant flood damage when a large storm drainage pipe located just off the practice fields burst and sent hundreds of thousands of gallons of water racing across the field and into the building.

    The damage left a sink hole roughly 10 feet in diameter and 30 feet deep at the back of the property. The City of San Diego is in the process of replacing a large portion of the pipe, and their work will flow into the area where fans gather to watch practice.

    The Chargers are hopeful that the extensive project, which includes the replacement of hundreds of yards of drainage pipe, will be complete in time for training camp, which begins in late July.

    Over the last few weeks, the flooring and carpet has been replaced in the weight room, locker room and athletic training rooms at Chargers Park. The sod on the south practice field was completely replaced as well.

    I was thinking the same thing - I wonder if the police will allow parking if they are not going to let people enter?

    So do it. We plan on going down there and tailgating anyway, any excuse to tailgate is a good one. It's a blast watching the guys pull in for camp, screaming, yelling and showing our diehard support. Who knows, maybe get some autographs or even be let in the back way to watch just because showed enough pride in our team to be there.

    As soon as we get a date let's hook this thing up. :tup: Drunk, that means you bring your moms killer salsa, we'll be there with Stone beer and kick *** Bloody Marys. Why wait till Sept. to party? Let's do this now!!! :icon_party:

    Does any body want to get together at charger park for spring training on May 3rd. We could tailgate early to watch them arrive like we did last year with bolt bunker. Who's in? Its not a practice that's open to the public but we could party across the street like last year. :abq2:

    I am in and if we do a REALLY GOOD JOB of becoming noticed - we just might get a special invite to see the team if not a few of the players to come out and see or greet us.

    If anything, it is a damn good reason to party one more time and talk some f-ball chit and see who brings it. :icon_toast:

    HBM (Greg) runs the Bolt Bunker. Bolt Talk has always been a good friend to the Bunker. We did 2 joint tailgates last year with both Bot Talk & Bolt Bunker and they were a blast.

    There are a few members that visit both sites.

    RTL, you, Drunk and I think Bimbo are good for this weekend and so am I at this point. Lets just do it. Saturday will not be good for everyone - oh well....lets just get it done.

    The rookies need to see that we are watching them and that we are ready to praise or pounce. :icon_eek:
