**SAINTS 2009 MINICAMP PRACTICE SCHEDULE**
Two Practices Open to the Public
Fans of the New Orleans Saints will have their first opportunity to get an up-close look at the 2009 Saints during the team's full-squad mini-camp practice on Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6.
Two practice sessions have been specifically designated by the Saints for viewing the mini-camp practices at the team's year-round training facility at 5800 Airline Drive in Metairie. The first open practice to the public will be held on Friday (June 5) beginning at 3:00 p.m. The second open practice session to the public will be held on Saturday (June 6) at 10:15 a.m.
Gates will open one hour prior to the start of both practice sessions. Fans are prohibited from videotaping any portions of the team's practice sessions. Also, in the event if inclement weather, the team may move practice indoors with little of no advanced warning. Please be advised that fans attending either practice on Friday or Saturday will not be permitted inside the indoor practice facility due to limited space. The Saints apologize to Saints in advance for any inconveniences this may cause.
