Could have been a counting error from the team/roster section of the site. I had 62 listed on the site and with the 5 additions that makes 67. Nonetheless, I am very glad this season is getting set to start with mini camp CFL draft and main training tramp. Lets get this party started!

Excuse my ignorance, but can fans attend?  If so what times and is there a particular gate to use?

Thanks in advance.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced Thursday that the football club will host a three-day mini-camp at Tim Hortons Field next week from Tuesday, April 24 to Thursday, April 26.
The Tiger-Cats coaching staff, led by Head Coach June Jones, will welcome veteran players and players that are under contract entering their first CFL season for three days of on-field practices and meetings ahead of training camp, which begins May 20.

Which gate(s) will be open? (I ask for parking purposes. I don't want to park furthest away from the only open gate). :o

Ticats mini-camp to be different under June Jones (just like everything else)

"Over the last four seasons under Austin, mini-camp has largely been a showcase for first-year players trying to earn an invite to training camp the following month. While there were often a few veterans around – most notably the quarterbacks – the roster featured a lot of unknown names sporting unusual numbers.
This year, however, mini-camp will feature a veritable who’s who of the Ticats roster as Jones looks to further extend his influence over the offensive system while also introducing his new and very noteworthy defensive coordinator, Jerry Glanville.
As Jones explains it, last year’s post-Labour Day offensive system was something of a hybrid featuring his concepts but utilizing most the existing terminology left over from the Austin offence. It was an unorthodox and inefficient way of doing things – it’s pretty remarkable they were as successful as they were – and something that Jones will use mini-camp to change."

"Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli arrives as the undisputed No. 1 starter for the first time in his CFL career but Jones says he expects reps in mini-camp to spread equally among all four quarterbacks. While Vernon Adams, acquired in an off-season trade with Saskatchewan, arrives as the presumptive backup, Jones says there will be a competition that includes newcomer Bryant Moniz and holdover Dane Evans.
“Vernon will take the second reps but there’ll be a competition because I really like all three guys,” Jones said.
And what about Johnny Manziel, still on the Ticats’ neg list and still without an NFL contract after his up-and-down performance in The Spring League. Jones says depth charts that involve Manziel don’t make sense at this point.
“I don’t worry about Manziel, I coach the guys that are here,” he said."

"Mini-camp will also provide a first glimpse at the role assistant head coach and former defensive coordinator Orlondo Steinauer will play. The coaching staff has been together for more than two weeks, working out of the football operations offices at Tim Hortons Field and Jones says Steinauer has been influential on both sides of the ball."
“He’s mostly been working with me but when we take a break, I see him down the hall talking with the defensive guys,” Jones said. “He’s been helpful in a lot of areas.”

Just spit-balling and thinking out loud here ... 

Perhaps some of these players that are not listed have not received medical clearance as of yet? Specifically the guys that were hurt AS TiCats? They'd need to be cleared to participate in any team organized activities.

There are 78 players on the full roster and 60 listed on this mini-camp roster.  So, there are 18 signed players not participating:

2 WR - Aprile and Toliver
2 RB - Green and Timmis
1 OL - Freeman

2 DL - Coleman and McGough
6 LB - Couplin, Davis, Hughes, Newton, Shortill and Whonder
3DB - Blackmon, Lyn and Rogers

1 K/P - Hajrullahu
1 LS - Malcolm

I like what FenderGuy69 pointed out -- that they're giving Thomas Erlington a look at SB and Whitlock at RB, in addition to their regular positions (RB & DT respectively).  Whitlock was the NFL Giants' starting FB for, at least, part of his, I believe, 3 seasons there.

No 83 either. I hope that is a positive sign.

I saw Coleman at the camp - but he was not participating physically - so my guess is he was not medically cleared to take part.

I think 82 is a long shot to make the team - based solely on his last name - Riles. :o ;D
