Reading Rod Pedersen's Pats Update (found here).... Chad Lang is quoted as saying

ON THE CAMP SCHEDULE We get going Friday morning. We'll have four teams. At 9 am Friday there will be four practice sessions each with an hour with scrimmages in the evening. They start at 5:30 with the rookies and the vets hit the ice around 7. That's the same format Saturday and Sunday. Then we'll get down to our top 40 in anticipation of Monday's Blue & White game at 2:00 in the Cooperators. It's a great venue to hold our camp and for fans to get close to the action. We're encouraging everybody to come out. Hockey season's here and we're excited about it.

So I guess we'll see how the weekend pans out.
