Practice info: Wedn, May 2 in Voorhees (following meeting)

Does anybody know if tomorrow's Flyers practice is in Voorhees and open to the public? @NHLFlyers tweeted that it would take place at 11am.

How long does practice normally last? I can't get there until just before noon - I don't want to show up while everyone is just leaving.

Any other general tips or advice to optimize my experience would be appreciated.

**Sorry if these questions have already been asked - did a search and didn't find anybody talking about practice (except for Allen Iverson).**

It is in Voorhees. There's supposedly a team meeting or whatever then practice will start after that has been concluded but such things are fluid. It is open to the public. Times can vary but if it starts at 11:30 a.m. it should last past noon.

Perhaps these FAQs could be of service:

The team usually practices "on ice" for a little over an hour. Some fans will wait outside the building after practice for autographs but most players work out and watch video so those fans are usually waiting for nothing. My experience has been to wait inside for a half hour after the players leave the ice and then head out with the autograph seekers (if you are looking for one). As soon as you walk out the door walk to the end of the sidewalk to your right. Players who want to chat it up with fans and sign gear will drive around that end. Most star players will drive around the other side. If it's raining players will usually not stop to sign anything so it's best to head up on a nice day.

I got my LeClair jersey autographed by the whole team when I was 19 I believe. I had everyone from Hitchcock to Forsberg to the rookies Richards, and Carter.

I used a store brand "permanent" marker. I wore it to class a couple days later, and on the way to my car it started raining, long story short the only one that's left is Esche...

My buddy used a sharpie, and all his names remain perfectly intact, but on a Pitkanen jersey. I guess it even's out a little.

I headed up today with my daughter. The only Flyer that stopped was Brandon Manning. He signed my daughters mini stick. Nice kid. Lots of people there today.
