Wondering is any Int players will be in attendance... they are off the clock now, and Thanksgiving is tomorrow.  I can't see the Bombers flying anyone back in, that counts to SMS...   have the Bombers got any confirmations of who will be in attendance? 

Alumni I can see in droves, DB, Vega, Bluto, Westy, the rest of the usual suspects, as well as player that live here like Nichols, Harris, Olivera, Demski...  and maybe even the coaches, many of them should still be around. 

I bet the #1 question people will ask, are there going to be the same number of shirts as guests, or will we be one short with #17 in attendance?

Flights do not count to the SMS, however, the Bombers cannot pay them to attend. That being said there are a number of players who now live here in the offseason and many who are probably sticking around until Dec. 1 before leaving for home.

Looks like I will probably be selling my ticket (if anyone is interested in a discount one).

Looks like the roads are going to be pretty poor form Winkler https://instantweather.ca/2019/11/28/zcFSMr-special-weather-statement-issued/?fbclid=IwAR1fiD9iXJWmy315R8brZzhIEDUmQj7ZXc2bzDJDhnpsetgWyjygsGaH_NQ

Just got back from family day at the convention center. I just about got all I wanted. 4 Alumi signatures and 5 players including Hardrick (who just in the crowd and just I caught him), Strev, Biggie, Rush, and Miles. Just missed out OSH as his line was in lobby with no signage, HELLO! My parking was running out and that line was extremely slow. That sucked.

Props to Joe Pop and wife who saw me struggling with the parking meter with card card and Mrs Pop was so nice to give me $5 change to make darn thing work. Plus they were behind me in line and wanted to get heck in there.

The autograph area was disorganized. Looked like a poorly planned area!

Lots of stuff for the kids and the cup was there.

Maybe he signs his contract then leaves.
 He said he does not remember hugging GOLD MEMBER enroute to the speeches stage at the forks. lol. Not surprising considering.

I was at the Convention Centre today. I got a couple of nice t-shirts and after standing in line for an hour a picture with The Grey Cup. I was just going to take a picture of the cup but the nice ladies there were taking pictures with people's phones. I also got to meet Wade Miller and shake his hand. I saw O'Shea when I was leaving but I didn't feel like standing in line again. Overall a very nice day. Good job Bombers.

All ok Buddy. This was the last grasp at $$$ Most of the players are south with there Turkey Day. Reminds me of that Marks football week a few years back, I so so wanted to love it. When I showed up with my kids, I felt it was totally unorganized and not really wanted. Wasn't that about the fans?

I get that the players want to be home for Thanksgiving. The Bombers got a bad break because usually The Grey Cup is after the American Thanksgiving so there isn't the rush to get home. Thumbs up to the players that stayed.
