Packers Training Camp Thrills Fans in August
Posted on: 7/21/2010
The Green Bay Packers have announced the schedule for their 2010 training camp, featuring seven two-a-days and eight night practices at Ray Nitschke Field.
With a theme of "Back to Football," training camp opens with a single practice at 2pm on Saturday, July 31. The first of seven two-a-day workouts follows Sunday, August 1, with a morning practice at 8:45am and an evening workout at 6:30pm. The other two-a-days, all with the same practice times of 8:45am and 6:30pm, are scheduled for August 3, 5, 10, 12, 17 and 19. The other single workouts are slated for 2pm on August 2, 6, 9 and 16.
The final night practice is set for August 23. Following the second preseason game at Seattle on Saturday, August 21, the team has no more two-a-days and will practice in either the morning or evening. The final practice open to the public will be held on Tuesday, August 31 at 10:15am. Should inclement weather or any other factor force the team indoors during spring training, practices will be closed to the public due to space limitations inside the Don Hutson Center.
The annual Packers Family Night is scheduled for Saturday evening, August 7 at Lambeau Field. The event will benefit the Wendy's Wonderful Kids program. Evening activities get underway in the stadium at 5:30 p.m., followed by on-field football drills at 6:30 and the scrimmage at approximately 7:30.
According to the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau, training camp, along with Packers Family Night will attract an estimated 100,000 visitors from across the nation and as many as 20 foreign countries. With an economic impact estimated at $25-30 million, training camp is a financial boost to many area businesses.
Packers fans and their families looking for more fun in Green Bay can start with the Packers Hall of Fame in the stadium atrium. From there, kids will enjoy the inexpensive midway rides at Bay Beach Amusement Park and the many animals at the NEW Zoo. History buffs can tour the Neville Public Museum, Heritage Hill State Park, or the National Railroad Museum where more than 70 locomotives and railcars are on display. Birders will enjoy the Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve and the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary.
