Heading North Again

We’re heading north again this weekend — for the main reason of moving into our new Green Bay headquarters. It will serve as our nerve center and lodging for Packers’ home game weekends through the 2014 season, as well as for the Shareholders’ Meeting and during Training Camp. But we don’t plan on arriving in town tomorrow with guns blazing, as Jean Nicolet did in 1634 (seen above), unsettling the Native American population.

In case you don’t have it on your calendar, camp opens on July 26th — that’s in less than a month, fans.

We’d love to be able to drive through downtown Green Bay back when this photo was taken.

And perhaps stay at the old Beaumont Hotel, at the corner of Main & Washington.

And maybe take in a show at the old Bay Theater, which still survives as the Meyer Theater. We’ll share some photos of our trip, including a new set of construction photos from Lambeau Field. The new Packers Pro Shop will open on July 17th.
