ANNUAL PACKER PICNIC MOVES TO NEW LOCATION

(June 6, 2012) --- Here comes another Packers season... and the Central Florida Packer Backers are all set to kick-off the year with a couple of traditional events!


CFPB "PACKER PICNIC"

It’s that time of year again when Central Florida Packer Backer members gather together for the club’s 16th annual “Packer Picnic” set for Saturday, August 18, 2012 starting at noon.  The CFPB club found a great new place for the picnic, one that actually allows us to have beer!

The new location of the picnic is VFW post 2093 at 4444 Edgewater Drive in Orlando (32804). Put it in your GPS cause it’s a Great Packer Spot!

How could you say "No" to this?

The picnic moved for a couple of reasons. 

For those that don’t know, unlike Wisconsin where drinking is encouraged, it is illegal to drink in a county park here. We have been sneaking beers in those red cups but don’t want to get busted so we moved to where drinking is encouraged again. So encouraged, in fact, we will have TWO free barrels of beer!*

Also, this place is way better. Believe-you-me! Check it out here!

- The pavilion is bigger and better, has a big screen TV, a tiki bar and more fans than at a Jags game!
- It’s on Lake Fairview so bring your boat or jet ski, there’s a dock and a beach for swimming.
- Lots of waterfront space for your tents and the events.
- There’s a fully equipped outdoor kitchen.
- Horseshoe pits.
- 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 dem 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 all retire to the air conditioned bar for some more fun into the evening!
Water, sodas, and beer are free while they last, which will be a really long time considering how much there’s gonna be. After that, 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.  So please leave the beer coolers at home.

Here's a nice picture of people who like big brats.
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 as always, we’re very fortunate to have Joe Mama's pros cater the event.   With events like the “Bear Punting Competition,” the “Titletown Toiletseat 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. 

There are several ways you can 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. (By-the-way... 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.  But we know most of you are picnic veterans, so you know what to do.
Also, if you can help with events, games, setup or anything else... please let us know!

So get off your dupa and join the groupa!  As always, no pets or FIBs. Remember, you'll be able to renew your CFPB membership as sign-up forms will be available at the picnic.

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


FIRST PACKERS GAME

Don’t forget that the first regular season Packers game is Sunday September 9, 2012 at 4:15p at CFPB club headquarters at One Eyed Jack's in downtown Orlando.  Since this is the very first game of the year, we are going to have an awesome New Year’s party, complete with party favors, a New Year’s countdown, and free beer. Yes, you heard right... FREE BEER!

There will be more details later.  Watch for an upcoming email… and make sure to keep yourself informed by always checking out this blogspot and our Facebook page (which you should 'like' right now) for the latest club and Packers news.

Join the CFPB club and be part of the Packer family! If you're not having fun after your very first visit, you're either a Vikings fan or don't have a pulse (or both).

We'll leave you with a Packers' music video (above) called "Packer Face" (a take-off of the Lady Gaga hit "Poker Face") which features CFPB member Casper Casperson (#1456) at the 2:23 mark.

See you at the "Packer Picnic!"
