    I went last year for the first time. It was okay. Got to see Driver interact with the fans A LOT which was cool. Also got to see Vince Lombari's house. Other than that, I've got to say, it wasn't worth the 6 hour trip north lol. I'm considering going this year just because I'd like to see a few of the new guys up close, Datone, Lacy, Fraklin and Charles Johnson...

    Just not sure if I want to make the trip for that lol...

    How about the rest of you?

    First went
    I first went in 64. Was able to get many autographs -- many went on to become Hall of Famers.

    There is change in location this year for thePacker training camp practices

    The Packers are having Ray Nitschke Stadium playing field redone. So they are having training camp practices at Clark Hinkle practice field located on S. Oneida St. acrossthe street from LF parking lot
    . There are no bleechers to sit on at Clarke Hinkle practice field. Bring folding chairs to sit on, or you will have to stand to see the Packers' practice. And get out there early, in order to sit or stand near the practice Field.

    I try to make every Packer training camp practice I can . I live 5 miles from Lambeau Field.

    The last 3 years, I have done the Lambeau Field 5K in conjunction with a practice or 2. Nothing like entering LF and getting to run around the warning track and see yourself on the big screen! Loads of fun with people of all ages and abilities participating in this great event!

    I live 200 miles north of Green Bay and try to get to the Holy Land for a weekend every summer. We make a family weekend out of it. I try to meet my parents, my sister and brother in law, stay at the same hotel and we catch a practice, do a tour, visit the hall of fame, eat lunch at Curly's and see a preseason game. Health issues amongst several aforementioned family members has our annual pilgrimage on hold. The wife and I may go ourselves and use the weekend to do some shopping. Believe it or not there's some stuff we don't have up here in God's country, like malls, Menard's and Fleet Farms. I'd probably drink less doing things my wife's way anyway.

    Correction


    Packer training camp practices will be held in Ray Nitschke Stadium this year. Only the Packer's OTA's in May & June and mini camp practices in June will be held on Clarke Hinkle practice field. The practice field in Ray Nitschke Stadium will be excellent shape for Packer Training camp practices that are held in late July and August.

    Sorry for the earlier inaccurate post

    I'm around 900 miles from Green Bay, so that's a definite no for me. I have other things higher on my bucket list than going to Packers training camp.
