Packer Pic-a-nic: Saturday, August 9th!

"Thank God we're not Chicago Bears Boo Boo,
those Packer Backers know how to throw a pic-a-nic!"

Wow! It’s that time of year again, the Central Florida Packer Backers will gather together for the club’s 18th annual “Packer Picnic” set for Saturday, August 9th, 2014 starting at noon.  Same place for the picnic, and we will have a keg of FREE beer!  Picnic is at VFW post 2093, 4444 Edgewater Drive in Orlando, 32804 (just north of Fairbanks Ave). Put it in your GPS 'cause it’s a Great Packer Spot!
- The covered pavilion is huge, has a big screen TV, a tiki bar and more fans than you'll find at a Jags game 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.
- Lots of waterfront space for your tents and the events.
- Lots of parking, very little walking/stumbling.
- Big time sound system for dose polkas…ana one, ana two…
- Lots of activities for the kiddies, bring your swimmin’ suits!
- 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,” the new “Giant Beer Toss,” and, of course, the coveted “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 to take advantage of.  Got a fan?  Bring ‘em if you got ‘em.  Even though there are 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 $20 really will get you plenty!

* You can drink $20 worth of free beer before the season even starts!


In case you missed the July 4th hot dog eating contest at Coney Island Joey “Jaws” Chestnut won, eating 61 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  18th annual Packer Picnic is set for Saturday, Aug 9th 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!

Central Florida Packer Backers are NOT moving

uff-dah my fellow Cheeseheads...

... the bad news (make sure to read the 'GOOD' news below)

As quite a few people in the CFPB community noticed, there was an article in the Orlando Sentinel entitled, "Goodbye to One Eyed Jacks, Loaded Hog".

Yes, May 5th 2014 Cinco de Mayo will be the last time you will be able to hoist a Heine (no, not in the warsh room) at the the two bars.

Wall Street Plaza management has informed the Central Florida Packer Backers that... starting on May 6th, both One Eyed Jacks and The Loaded Hog will be gutted for a total renovation.

... the good news

We don't know what the name of the new bar is going to be (we suggested One Eyed Packs instead), but we do know:

1.  both 'old' bars will be combined into ONE SPACE (woohoo!)
2.  new bar is going to be awesome! (just like all other Wall Street bars are)
3.  there will be more 80" HD screens (that's HD = humdinger in Wisconsin... to the rest of the world it means something else)

other possible 'leaked' renovations:
4.  bratwurst-shaped hand sanitizer dispensers in warsh rooms.  The hand sanitizer will even be colored cheddar yellow.
5.  sensors will be mounted in the warsh rooms stalls.  If you sit longer than the designated time, over the ceiling speakers you will hear Vince Lombardi yell, "What the hell is going on in there!"
6.  every time the new auto-flush men's urinals flush, a sound byte will play "High Life!"  Urinals will come with the standard Chicago bears logo in the bottom.
7.  women's restroom stalls will ALL have posters of shirtless Clay Mathews (don't forget about #5 above)

So, keep practicing your off-season drinking of Miller Lite, there's no reason to stop.   Wall Street Plaza is still home to the Central Florida Packer Backers


Hey fellow Cheddarheads,
If youse are interested in going to the Packers @ Bucca-nothings game on Sunday Dec 21st 2014, believe-you-me... youse better act fast.  Tickets are almost gone.  You betcha!

You have two-tree choices.

one: you can call the extremely helpful Erin Lewis at the Buccaneer ticket office 813-870-2700 ext 2217 <or>

two: you can barter with unsavory Buccaneer ticket scalpers on game day. <or>

tree: you can start-wit-me-last (see Cheddarhead dictionary)
