STH Alert to check your email!!

This morning I received a email from the Falcons with an invitation to attend a special Training Camp Event in Flowery Branch. The event is for Season Ticket Holders who renewed by the 'early bird' deadline. I've already sent in my RSVP email and received a response/confirmation from the Falcons that my tickets for this event will be mailed next week.

Here's a cut/paste of the email FYI:

OK. The truth must be told.

This was a lame 'tour' and a huge disappointment to everyone I spoke with on Saturday afternoon.

"....Because you renewed your account by the Early Bird Deadline, you are invited to attend the 2010 Training Camp in Flowery Branch for a behind the scenes tour and special seating...."

"Behind the scenes tour" consisted of: walking from the Flowery Branch front gates and into the Falcons indoor practice field, where we were allowed to walk around for a few minutes, snap a photo or two and then.....wait for it.....we walked outside and around the backside of the outdoor practice fields, where we we able to see Arthur Blank running a few laps (seriously). Then we were escorted off the field to the bottom of the spectators hill where we were 'released to watch practice.'

Everyone who participated expected something more and was probably disappointed by what was offered. sad.gif

Wow, that really sucks. I'm so glad the other guys on my account didn't want to pay up months early for that lame tour. I was thinking they get to walk in that door that says press only, see the conference room, film room (kind of like hard knocks), and then maybe the players facilities. Thanks for the info.

To make matters worse, there was a violent storm that was rapidly advancing on Flowery Branch on Saturday afternoon so the Falcons quickly got all of the fans off of the viewing hill and sidelines, canceled the remainder of outdoor practice and were not able to do the traditional autograph session post-practice. Wasn't anyone's fault...stuff happens, but after the wildly disappointing 'tour' my grandson was pretty bummed out.
