    The Cowboys opened their first ever Training Camp. It was in Forest Grove, Oregon at Pacific University.

    Pacific University, where the great Michael Olowakandi came from, IIRC.

    Forest Grove, OR
    Thousand Oaks, CA
    Wichita Falls, TX
    Austin, TX
    Oxnard, CA
    San Antonio, TX

    Are all of those correct and is that all of the locations we've had for TC? Anyone know?

    Hos, didn't we have a TC in Wisconsin one year because of a problem with the Camp in Thousand Oaks? It seems like we did, or maybe it was in Minnesota. I can't remember for sure but I thought we did at one point but it was only for like a week until the situation was cleared up.

    If it was I didn't know about it.

    I need to look this up. I'd actually love to have the report date of every Camp they had if I could find it.

    I doubt it. Most teams want that to be away from the comforts of home.
