With the Bills in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game on August 9th, they opened training camp practice before any other team and an estimated 5000 fans poured into Pittsford, NY's St John Fisher college to see Terrell Owens and the Buffalo Bills take the field at the college's Growney Stadium for the 1st day of training camp. The hot and muggy afternoon session found many fans seeking temporary shelter in the air conditioned merchandise tent where it was less muggy, but just as hot as four of the Buffalo Jills were on hand signing autographs and posing for pictures during a portion of the practice. Day 1 featured a visit from the Jills' longest tenured vets, Omarlla and Eileen as well as 5th year vet Katie and 3rd year vet Ayeshia.
The Jills won't be at every session this summer but will be at quite a few of them. You can see a list of what practices to expect them at by visiting the Jills' website at http://buffalojills.net/appearances/details.php?recordID=31
There are a number of other appearances to watch out for though as a number of new ones have been announced.
This Tuesday, some of the Jills will be downtown outside Coca-Cola Field before the Bisons game collecting funds to help earthquake victims in Italy from 6-8. http://buffalojills.net/appearances/details.php?recordID=32
On Saturday, August 1st, if you're not feeling like heading out training camp in Rochester, there's plenty of incentive to stay in Buffalo, or, more exactly, North Tonawanda, as some of the Jills will be at Adventure Speedway from noon-2 racing go-karts. http://buffalojills.net/appearances/details.php?recordID=33
