Cowboys moving training camp to California
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys are moving their
training camp from San Antonio to Oxnard, Calif.
The team said Friday it has signed a two-year contract with an
option for a third year at the Marriott Residence Inn in Oxnard,
about 60 miles from Los Angeles.
The team said financial and scheduling conflicts forced the
Cowboys to look elsewhere. A convention was scheduled at the
Alamodome during the same time the Cowboys were to train in San
Antonio next summer.
The Cowboys have held camp in San Antonio's Alamodome the past
two years, after holding camp in Austin and Wichita Falls. From
1963-89, the Cowboys trained at California Lutheran University in
Thousand Oaks, Calif.
In 2001, the Cowboys spent the second part of camp at Oxnard
after practicing three weeks in Wichita Falls.
