Once again thanks for a great event. I had a blast hanging with the group as usual. They really are awesome people.

I also wanted to tell you how wonderful a job you do on these camps. From the notes under the room doors right after arrival to the breakfast on the last morning, you go first class. After we returned home, Dan was going through his bag like a kid at Christmas. The gifts and pictures he received are priceless. The room we were in was the nicest I had ever stayed in. I want to finish by saying that my Dan is the greatest husband any woman could ever wish for. It thrills me to no end to see him happy beyond words during the camps. And YOU make this happen for him as well as these other huge fans of ND. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making his dream come true and for allowing the families to be right in there with them. May you be blessed as you have been blessing to so many. We’ll see you at the 2008 camp. GO IRISH!!

I wanted to thank all of you for a wonderful time last week. Words just can’t describe it. I look forward to seeing some of you at Penn State and hopefully the rest of the year. Special thanks to you Juniors, Seniors and 5th year guys. Your kindness and hospitality was unbelievable. It was a real pleasure getting to know all of you.
-Christopher P. Cromers, Vice President Investments, A.G.Edawrds

I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you again for putting together such an incredible experience. My husband and I will never forget it! I was such a blubbering idiot when I introduced myself to you, but I blame Gene, Sr. My mother-in-law phoned Sunday after their return and asked my husband, “How do you get your dad to stop crying?” Thanks again to you and your staff – Go Irish!!

I am so thankful for the 5 year that I was able to be a part of the Fantasy Camp. I am also envious of those that have eligibility left. Pat has built a wonderful experience, and the memories of all you have been nothing but great. Those of us that are playing Penn State are playing as your teammates–we are all Irish. We promise to play hard and give it our best. Remember–we aren’t promised tomorrow, so live today as if it is your last.

Thank you again for all the effort. The camp was great, really a special time.
-Eric Turzak

I just wanted to let you all know what a great time I had at my first, but not last, fantasy camp. Everyone involved with the camp was very professional and very knowledgeable with everything that went on. Everyone deserves a big pat on the back. Again, you deserve a great big pat on the back. GREAT HOB! Go Irish!!!!!!!!!!! Again GREAT JOB

What a week of Irish Football and also expanding our family for all who are part of the Notre Dame Fantasy Camp. I have to tell you one of the greatest joys I have experienced over the past 5 years is getting the chance to see and feel the joy of the new guys who join our team. This year was no different. I could feel the excitement by everyone who attended from 1st year guys even to us old 5th year guys. Every year I tell my wife can this get any better and somehow it does thanks to the great job of Patrick and his team, but most importantly the new freshmen coming in. As I have said from my first year “we are a family” and I am proud to be apart of it. Thank you everyone from making my week so special. GO IRISH!!
-Bob Johnson

Just a line to let you know the Fantasy Football Camp was awesome!! Everything was top notch. Well worth the price for the experience and the speakers. I had a great time! My wife taped the game for my stepson who is in the Marine Corps. I can’t wait to get his take on it. Just thought I’d let you know.

I had the fortunate opportunity, this past week, to attend the 2007 ND Football Fantasy Camp. It was given to me as a graduation gift by my brother. You may or may not know about the camp. For those of you who have never heard of it, or for those who have in passing, this is truly something you need to put on your list of things to do in your lifetime, or think about it as a gift for a loved one. I do not believe I can give the experience true justice via an email but it was an experience I will never forget for the rest of my life. It was priceless.
