    We started getting off track on the Fergie thread - so, it's time to re-visit this train of thought that I had originally posted back when this Forum finally got its legs....

    I'm looking on several Forums for comment on this subject....

    Are you aware of, or a Member of, a Packer Club in your vicinity?

    Here's a good example -------

    Now, RYAN has been great at placing links to most of the sites that are commonly known already.
    They are ----

    • 1. Baltimore Cheeseheads (est. 250)
      2. Buckeye PackerBackers (locations statewide)
      3. Central Florida Packerfans (need more info)
      4. Houston Cheddarheads (over 750 strong now)
      5. Idaho PackerBackers (two different towns)
      6. Indy PackerBackers (over 400 Members)
      7. Memphis PackerBackers (est 150 Members)
      8. Nashville PackerBackers (need more info)
      9. Northwest PackerBackers (est 500+)
      10. Pack Pacific (need more info)
      11. St. Louis PackerBackers (split into two groups )
      12. Tulsa PackerBackers (close to 1,000 Members now)
    I did not list the Arizona Packer Club, as yet - it is unclear as to what organization, if any, they now have...

    All above Clubs are viewed as truly organized, even if loosely - we can contact the Group Leaders. etc. etc. The more organized, the more they would have shirts, etc for sale upon Membership. Houston, Baltimore and several others actually have a Fee to join up. IPB has yet to make that a part of the Club format - were trying to avoid doing this... If we can create events, or sell Club items then that'd be the better way to corral funding... Several of these Clubs are now involved in Charity, including IPB which got its first taste of that during the Packers/Colts game last year... When you are grouped into an Organized collection of Fans - you now have a semblence of power which can be used for good (or get your butts run outta town) depending on how you approach that inner strength of the Membership. Think about it.....

    I've also heard tell of a Group finally gaining some co-hesion in Atlanta - but still no way of contacting who might be in charge.

    Now, obviously, a person could spend months reviewing all of the listed HANGOUTS we see posted on Packers.com, etc. - but our intention is to create a more functional site wherein a person could click on a pin-flag on a map of the U.S. (and later on, the World Atlas) and find out what ya need to know...

    So - who's a Member of a Club - anyone?

    Looks like you're going to have to get rid of one more guy today, Ryan. Shame, really. He had so much promise.

    Well, ol' buddy - they're usually NOT one word postings, now are they....?

    And, this isn't just about getting an assist from your site onto mine....
    It's about something inherently more important...organizing Packerfans!
    Organizing Packerfans who can't make it to Lambeau for every game.

    What's more fun than getting together for some good ol' Wisconsin hospitality and a Packer Game?

    Answer: Not much, when it comes right down to it.

    Anybody gonna answer the question?

    Ryan,

    Sharing is a good thing. I appreciate you allowing IPB to do a little homework here. I tend to hang my hat at one team forum and one team forum only. This is a very good forum, and I am here to stay.

    However, as much as I travel, any link I can find that has Packer/Raider bars or clubs nation wide is a big help to me.

    IPB if you know of any in Providence R.I. let me know please. I am heading there soon.

    P.S. I really think the Pack should make a move for this kid... I really do becuase he is not going to get the shot in Raidersville with the talent they have.

    Ryan, where do you hang out in Omaha for the games? I know I'll probably have NFL Sunday ticket (like I do here in Virginia), but its a pretty good bet I'll be moving back to Omaha in the next year. Just wondering if anything new and cool was around for Packer hangouts.

    ORRELSE, funny that you should ask that. I was just doing some googling for published hang outs. I usually just stay home and watch the games, we get most all of them here as long as they don't get stupid and try to put the chiefs game on or something lame. If for whatever reason I can't get it I will run to the Varsity on 96th and L (it's like 5 min from my house) or DJ's Dugout I heard has all the games on that are being played. We caught one game there back in 2000 when I first moved out here.

    What brings you back to Omaha?

    Hey RP - Morant sounds like he'll do okay - but let's see what happens - You never know, Randy Moss could get hurt and be out for the season... He really would end up being the WR Coach at that point.

    Don't think the Packers are gonna spend any more capital on new Players now - we're getting ready to trim down to 53 - it starts with this next game...
