Great job Saskatoon. I am from Regina but I hope to make it up to at least one of the events.

Great job Saskatoon? This is all Rider marketing just happens to be in Saskatoon. Riders need to give the 2500 season ticket holders and single game ticket buyers from the north an opportunity to share in the excitement of Rider Nation. A small price to pay for the sacrifice these fans make to attend games in Regina.

I've lived in Regina my whole life and Saskatoon deserves this training camp because they do an A-1 job every season.

The Riders and Coors Light? I think not, unless that part of the province has changed its taste preference. Pil all the way!
