Just looking at the calendar, Iím going to guess that the guy will probably be held on Saturday October 4. But remember Ö thatís just my guess!
Based on the way the end of September and beginning of October shakes out Ö I think the Raps could have their ďMedia DayĒ on Sunday the 28th and then hold camp in Ottawa from Sept. 29 - Oct. 4 or 5.

If it's held at carleton i'll be dissapointed. It makes more sense to do it at the Scotiabank Place, since i live 5 mins away ;)

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.

"Carleton University offers us state of the art facilities and a great working relationship with a highly successful basketball program."

The Raptors travelled overseas as part of NBA Europe Live last year, holding their camp in Rome and Madrid.

The Raptors will conduct two-a-day practices at the Ravens' Nest Gymnasium at Carleton, and will wrap up camp with an intrasquad game on Oct. 4.

The Raptors open the 2008 pre-season Oct. 7 at Cleveland and return home to play host to the New York Knicks the following evening.

The club's 2008-09 regular-season opener is Oct. 29 at Philadelphia. The home opener is set for Oct. 31 versus the Golden State Warriors.
