Another update Ottawians.

Seems a raft of you Raptor fans are pretty excited and anxious about the impending training camp.

Not much I can tell you, at the moment, but stand by.

I’m told we should hear this week – and this being Wednesday there isn’t much left of this week – about such things as the intrasquad scrimmage that I believe is going to be the afternoon of Oct. 4 and other camp gems.

As far as I can discern right now, they’ll do a media day here in Toronto on Sept. 29, head to Ottawa that night and practice at Carleton for five days before the scrimmage brings an end to the festivities.

A word of warning, though:

If this camp is like any of the other 13 or 14 I’ve been at, there will be very little interaction between the players and fans during the workout days. Nothing will be open, and there’s not likely to be anything scheduled.

Now, if you want to run into a beat grunt or two, I’m sure there are a couple of locals that we’ll turn into locals.
