Miller-rithmatic (no beer-drinker left behind)

The beginning of Green Bay Packers season must be close at hand,
because when I arrived home today I couldn't get in my front door.
what's in the boxes?  time for a little Miller-rithmatic

1.  they can hold 13,200 ounces of Miller Lite.
2.  or 103.125 gallons of Miller Lite.
3.  or the equivalent of 1,100 Miller Lite 12oz bottles.
4.  or the equivalent of an 825 foot tall tower, if you stacked 1,100 bottles.

answer:  (600) 22oz. Miller Lite mugs soon to be in the hands of Central Florida Packer Backers.  Yes, we have BIGGER mugs.

Go Pack!

Packer Fans, what's in your wallet? or purse? or secret compartment in your shoe?

If you need to know what the abbreviation F.I.B. represents, email us, or stop by the front table at 'SIDESHOW' and we'll whisper thru your foam cheesehead into your ear.
(sorry kids: you'll have to ask your parents)

With the help of the Packers Cheerleaders this past 2013 NFL season (and thanks to Miller Lite for an awesome banner), we were able to capture this special moment to be forever remembered on our new collectible 2014 CFPB membership cards.

Remember... 'your $20 will get you plenty!'

CFPB Bladder Buster

When we say, 'Your $20 will get you plenty!', we mean it.  There's plenty of excitement ahead doan-cha-know.  You'll have to keep checking back on our blog, but here's a teaser...

2014... we are going to have a brand new bar, new membership cards, there will be moments of Free Miller Lite, new bigger Miller Lite mugs in colors we've never had before, the Miller Ladies will be visiting us for a bunch of games, tailgate party, giving away 2 tickets to Lambeau Field in week #3, not only will there be a 'Ladies Night', but we will be also be celebrating 'Ladies YEAR!, another 2 tickets to Lambeau Field (did I mention 50-yard line?), Shot day, Jagermeister day, Captain Morgan day, new Lombardi prayer candles for our members (plus you can still get Aaron... and shirtless Clay Matthews candles), we already have over 250 people going to the Packers-Bucs game in Tampa, AND we will be giving away a Miller Lite Bicycle at the end of the season.

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!

DON’T FORGET! PACKER PICNIC SATURDAY AUGUST 9TH!

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!
