....what do you guys eat as a pre-workout snack (if anything) to give you the requisite energy without making you bloated or sick to the stomach? Also how far prior to the workout do you have your snack?

Eat about 1 hour prior to heavy exercise.

Soft fruit (banana, dried cots), 3 or 4 fig newtons, couple of slices of bread get into your system fairly rapidly and don't cause much of a challenge to stomach.

Pick one or two items from above - not the entire menu.

This'll fill up the glycogen stores.

If you workout in the morning, your glycogen stores are pretty much depleted even having slept all night.

I like a PB (chunky) and J on whole wheat about an hour before practice. Gets me through 3000 or so without a tummy grumble!

See Ya

I've found I can eat pretty much anything besides Indian food before a workout and be o.k. Beware the Indian food, though :D
