    I was just wondering if anyone on here is trying to get tickets for Fan Fest this year. I sent in my application for one. So far, the only player they have announced that will be there is Aaron Kampman.

    You have to do that soemday Cory! It's something ALL Packer fans should do. It's quite a special feeling being in the stands at Lambeau! I was fortunate enough to get to go to 2 preseason and 3 regular season games 2 years ago, and it was GREAT! 2 of the regular season games i saw were wins, including the blowout of the Saints!

    I've been to the first two but didn't sign up this year because I have another event that Friday. Didn't see the need to spend $75 for Saturday only and not be able to go on Sunday.

    However, my event on Friday may be cancelled. Either way, I'm thinking of trying to get a cheap ticket off of eBay. Tickets were going for less than face value last year and there were tons of people who purchased extra tickets thinking they would get them for friends but got stuck with extras because there were no takers.

    So hopefully I will be there at least on Saturday.

    But don't go for the autographs, go for the little seminars, those are much more interesting. I did get Bart Starr's autograph last year which was fun but standing in line JUST for autographs is not the way to do Fan Fest, but that's just me.

    And look what happened to the Vikings eh???

    In the 80s, they had some pretty Cheerleaders... That was basically the highlight of their NFL season.

    Great point! Maybe Longwell and Sharper went there to help bring down the Vikings! Maybe they are still PACKERS at heart! I mean......is Sharper REALLY that slow that he couldn't catch Donald Driver??? :rotflmao:

    Can't you get up to Green Bay to get one? Green is REAL nice at signing. I got his after practice. I asked him to come to the fence to sign, and he walked right over and did it. NICE guy! (William Henderson did too!)

    I liked it the way it was too. The 3 days. It gave more time to spend in GB!

    The deadline for requesting tickets was the 26th so the eBay watch has begun, no tickets yet. Last year the smart ones saw the tickets go on their credit card put them up for auction right away and suckers were paying $500/pair, at least the first few.

    Then everyone else rushed in thinking they could make the same money but a huge number of them ended up selling for less than face value. Not too many people seem to comprehend the dynamics of an auction; there is only one high bidder because the rest aren't willing to pay that much.

    Regardless, I got my eye out for a cheap ticket to get in on Saturday.

    It all stemmed from the FIRST Fan Fest. The tickets went so fast, that ones were selling on ebay for $200 to $300 each. And people were GETTING it. So i think alot of people last year tried to get them ONLY to sell for a huge profit on ebay. They never intended to go to it, they saw it as easy money. But it backfired, as that put too many tickets on ebay, bringing the prices down. I drove to GB the first year to stand in line for my ticket. That was the ONLY reason i got one, as if i had tried by telephone i never would have got through. Last year, my application was turned down, but a dear sweet friend bought me one and i got to go after all.
    This year i payed by check, so i have NO idea if i will get a ticket or not yet. Supposed to be mailed by the 12th either way.

    Welp... it's begun. One person has two auctions up, one for 4 tickets, the other with 2 tickets. Since I didn't sign up for tickets this year I didn't see if they're limiting sales to 6 each again but if that's true, this guy is putting out his 6 tickets right away. And they already have bids.

    Last year the guy who had the first auction did a buy-it-now, 2 tickets for $500 and he had a buyer right away.

    Most auctions lost money, though. It's those first few where the morons with money give it away.

    Well.......i got my ticket in the mail today. Finally, something to smile about!
    I have been watching sales of Fan Fest tickets on Ebay........i have seen some go for UNDER face value already! A ticket broker from GB LOST about $20 on a block of 4 he sold. I was GLAD to see that! He had a block of 2 he was selling also, and he made about $15 on those.
    Maybe this will keep the NON FANS out of trying for tickets, if they can't sell them for a big profit like they did the first year they held Fan Fest. That will allow the REAL fans to get tickets through the Packers, and not have to look elsewhere.
    So far I haven't seen any other players listed for the autograph sessions. I wish the Packers would get a list up, so i know what to bring to try for sigs.
    Anyone else from here going?
