21st Annual Packer Picnic


Wow! It's that time of year again, the Central Florida Packer Backers will gather together for the club's  21st Annual "Packer Picnic" set for Sunday, August 13th, 2017 starting at noon.  Same place for the picnic, and once again we will have a keg of FREE Miller Lite beer!  Picnic is at VFW post 2093, 4444 Edgewater Drive in Orlando, 32804 (just north
of Fairbanks Ave).

The covered pavilion is huge, has a big screen TV, a tiki bar and lots of fans to keep everyone cool. It's on Lake Fairview, so bring your boat or jet ski ... and there's a dock and a beach for swimming. Bring your swimmin' suits!  There's lots of waterfront space for your tents and the events. And ... a full liquor bar inside with mixed drinks and shots for purchase for you seasoned Packer fans.

After the picnic, we will retire to the air conditioned bar for some more fun into the evening!

Water, sodas, and beer are free while they last.  After that the drinks are cheap (it is a VFW post doan-cha-know)  BUT YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BRING ALCOHOL TO THE PICNIC, AS THEY DON'T WANT TO LOSE THEIR LIQUOR
LICENSE.  Leave the beer coolers at home ... if not, you will be asked to leave.

As usual, we'll have plenty of free food, including Johnsonville brats, Chris' wonderful German potato salad and corn-on-the-cob!  All we ask is that each member bring a quality dish to share... and we ain't talkin' about a Sports
Illustrated swimsuit model either!  Just like always, we're very fortunate to have Joe Mama's pros cater the event.   With events like the "Bear Punting Competition" and the perennial favorite "Beer & Brat Speed Eating Contest" you would have to be a Bears fan to not have a good time.

How can you help?

Got an extension cord?  There's a bunch of outlets for us.  Got a fan?  Bring 'em if you got 'em.  Even though there are lots of ceiling fans a few more can't hurt.  That's why it's always cool at Lambeau ... there's a fan in every seat!  If you have one of those industrial fans like they have at Home Depot, all the better.
Most of youse guys are picnic veterans so you know what to do.

If you can help with any events, setup, or anything else please let us know.

So get off your dupa and join the groupa!  As always, no pets or FIBs.  Don't forget to renew your membership, it's still only $20! Sign up forms available at the picnic. Your twenty really will get you plenty!

Dont't Forget!! Packer Picnic Sunday Aug 13th

In case you missed the 101st annual July 4th hot dog eating contest at Coney Island, Joey “Jaws” Chestnut won, eating 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes.  He also holds the world record for bratwursts with 70 in 10 minutes…yikes!

The Central Florida Packer Backer version is the “Brat/Beer speed eating/drinking contest” at the CFPB picnic.  The good news is you don’t have to eat 70 brats like Joey, just 1 as fast as you can…with a beer.  Sounds pretty easy in comparison, huh?  Even if you don’t participate it’s a lot of fun to watch.  Hopefully no one has a “reversal of fortune”!

The  21st annual Packer Picnic is set for Sunday, Aug 13th starting at noon.  Same great place, VFW post 2093 at 4444 Edgewater Drive in Orlando, 32804 (just north of Fairbanks Ave).  

We will have tons of food and drinks…and cool games like the Brat Eating Contest!

Way more details coming soon….mark your calendars!

2017 PACKER PICNIC IS SUNDAY, AUGUST 13TH

The date for the social event of the summer is set, Sunday August 13th, 2017. Mark that date on your calendar or your phone, tattoo it on your arm, schedule your vacation for some other week, or quit your job if your Bear fan boss won't let you have the day off.  It's the CFPB Picnic for cripes sake!

Same awesome place, the VFW pavilion at 4444 Edgewater Drive on Lake Fairview (just north of Fairbanks Ave).

This is just a heads-up, way more details to follow (like the free beer part)...but more about that later.


Be there or be Bear!

Packers/Lions DirectTV update


Happy New Year! Wall St. Plaza's managers have just told us they WILL have the Packers/Lions game on at Sideshow tonight. NBC has not been on DirecTV since midnight due to contractual problems. Sideshow has worked their magic and has found a way to get the game on. There may be a few technical difficulties and the game won't be on in the Cantina next door but at least the CFPB can watch as a group. Thanks to Wall St. Plaza for going the extra mile for us to get the game.
Sooooo...get off your dupa and join the groupa to see the Pack crowned NFC North champs!

SPEND CHRISTMAS EVE WITH THE PACKERS 1 PM SATURDAY


This Saturday isn't just Christmas Eve, it's happy Packer day too!
Sideshow will, of course, have the Packers game on all the big screens just like usual. 

The bar is open but the kitchen will be closed so feel free to bring whatever food or snacks your little heart desires-even fruitcake!

There might even be a visit from Packer Claus himself, with gifts for the good boys and girls, and maybe for some of the naughty ones too!

Speaking of cheer, it's also Captain Morgan Day with extra specials on top of the usual specials...Arrrrr me mateys!

The Packers now control their own destiny to the playoffs so get off your dupa, join the groupa, and cheer the Pack on to victory over those nasty Vikings!
Ho Ho Ho...Go Pack Go!
