Advance registration is taking place at the Minneapolis Parks web site.
STADIUM AUTHORITY NAMED
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton appointed his deputy chief of staff Michele Kelm-Helgen as the chair of the new Vikings Stadium Authority. She will serve alongside John Griffith and Duane Benson as the state's representatives on the stadium's oversight committee. The Vikings have been anxious for the committee to form so planning on the new stadium can begin, including taking requests for proposals.
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak named Barbara Butts-Williams of Capella University and Bill McCarthy of Minneapolis Central Labor to the Stadium Authority.
The Stadium Authority will oversee the design, construction and financing of the new stadium.
MINICAMP SCHEDULE SET
The Vikings announced their mandatory minicamp camp schedule for next week. The team will hold morning walk-throughs and afternoon practices on Tuesday and Wednesday and a final morning practice on Thursday before breaking until the start of training camp in Mankato. Players are scheduled to report to training camp on July 26.
Minicamp practices are not open to the public, but VikingUpdate.com will have daily coverage.
