Time to Get Your Brat On!
(August 5, 2011) --- Yes, for the 15th consecutive year, the Central Florida Packer Backers will mark the beginning of the football season with lots of brats, beans, and kicking a bear in da-butt. This year’s festivities is set for Sunday, August 21, 2011 starting at 11am.
Like years prior, the CFPB “Packer Picnic” will be held at Barnett Park (Pavilion #4) at 4801 West Colonial Drive in Orlando (next to the fairgrounds). Once you get into the park, just look for Bessie, the giant cow!
|Here's a nice picture of what World Champions look like!|
As usual, we’ll have plenty of free food, including Johnsonville brats, Chris’ wonderful German potato salad and even corn-on-the-cob! All we ask is that each member brings a quality dish to share. (And we ain't talkin' about a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model either... although it will be allowed!) And as always, we’re very fortunate to have the pros from Joe Mama's cater the party.
With events like the “Bear Punting Competition,” the “Titletown Toiletseat Toss” and, of course, the coveted “Beer & Brat Speed Eating Contest," you’d have to be a Bears fan to not have a good time. On top of that, we have a couple big surprises in store that will make you feel like a World Champion… well, because we are the World Champions!

How can you help? Have an extension cord? There’s a bunch of outlets for us to take advantage of. Got a fan? Bring ‘em if you got ‘em. (Incidentally, that’s why it’s always cool at Lambeau… there’s a fan in every seat!) And if you have one of those industrial fans like they sell at Home Depot, all the better! Aside from providing a tasty dish to share, if you can bring an extra bag of ice and/or an extra cooler, it would be greatly appreciated!
Also, if you can help with set-up, assist with one of the events or anything else... please let us know.

So get off your dupa and join the groupa!
As always, no pets or FIB’s.
First Packer Game is Coming Up Quick!
