      I live in Columbus, OH and was looking to visit the Training Camp on Saturday (Aug 7th) but the schedule says that the practice time is “TBD.” Any idea what exactly this means? I’m looking to take my 5 year old daughter to it (her first time!!) and didn’t want to miss any thing.

      Not sure if you would have any clarification on the time or not ,but thought it was worth a shot!

      Thanks!
