    If you did you were probably using AOL and Mozilla on a 386 with a dial up modem.

    Yes, it is transferable to you: From Article VI of the By-Laws, in case you haven't found it:
    "A holder of shares of Common Stock that is a natural person may only transfer such shares of Common Stock to a member of the holder's "immediate family" by gift or in the event of death of the holder. The term "immediate family" means the spouse, child, mother, father, brothers and sisters, or any lineal descendant of a stockholder."

    When this happens, HOW will I be able to buy? Do I go to packers.com and buy there? Do I need to buy them through E-Trade or some other stock broker company? Just looking for HOW. I can watch the news for when this will go down...

    As I recall, those who attended the Shareholders' meeting this year were allowed free admission to the HOF - but it was crazy crowded. I bought a ticket and went the next day.

    Packers are going to be releasing information towards the end of November. (based on their pre-recorded message) So the stock sale is either at the VERY end of November or we are looking at the first week of December.

    I guess its time I start hounding them with a few phone calls and throwing this site around to see if I can get some additional info's.

    I have some family in the States that maybe I could use, but needing a US address is ridiculous. There are Packer fans all over the world that should be able to buy the stock.

    Maybe you have to question the Canadian regulatory Agencies in both Federal and Province concerning their rules of selling stock in the Green Bay Packers, Inc, a publically owned non profit Corporation from the United States.

    The Packers not only had to get NFL approval for selling Stock in The Green Bay Packers , Inc but also the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
    There also was article in Green Bay Press-Gazette that State of Utah has to give the Green Bay Packers, Inc, their approval to sell Packer stock in that State.

    The US Securities and Exchange Commission has still not given the Green Bay Packers, Inc . permisssion to start selling Packer Stock in U.S. Apparently the U.S. Commission needs more paperwork from the Packers in 2011, then was needed in 1997-1998. That was the last time Packers had a stock sale.

    According to Green Bay Press-Gazette, Packers sold Packer stock to over 112,000 Packer stockhoders in all 50 States and 2 U.S. Territories. Nothing was said about Packers selling stock in any other Country besides the U.S in 1997-1998.

    It is a regulatory thing. You cannot buy stock outside of the US because it would not be permitted by the laws of most foreign countrys. Just as there are rules in this country governing the sale of foreign stocks. One of the reasons it is taking so long to get this sale going is all the regulatory bodies the Packers have to get permission from. State and Fed.

    Are you in the Military at an APO or FPO? if so that might fly. If you are a US citizen living abroad they might have exceptions for the address, but we will hopefully soon know. I hope it works out for you. I intend to buy a piece of stock in each one of my grand kids name. I could always slip your name in there.
