Beloit turns out for The Tour

The Packers Tailgate Tour ended a great string of visits on the second day with a great turnout for the Tailgate Party at Beloit’s Eclipse Center.

The Packers Tailgate Tour ended a great string of visits on the second day with a great turnout for the Tailgate Party at Beloit’s Eclipse Center. More than 1,000 fans took part in the event to support Beloit Regional Hospice.

The boisterous crowd heard from Mark Murphy and the players during a question-and-answer session that touched on many familiar subjects, including the draft, the upcoming season and what it was like playing in the Super Bowl.

Aaron Taylor, the former offensive lineman, drew laughs when he answered a query about what a player enjoys most about playing football.

“There are great friendships and camaraderie that you can develop,” Taylor began, “but there’s no greater joy in life than moving a person from point A to point B against his will.”

The fans in attendance included not only those from south of the border, who ventured in from Bears’ country (Illinois), but also Rhett Flavel, a green and gold backer from Australia. Flavel was visiting friends in the area who surprised him with a ticket for the event.

“It was a great surprise,” he said. “I only learned of it four or five hours ago. It was great to see them in person.”

Sarah Kruse, the director of community outreach for the Beloit Regional Hospice, enjoyed the evening as well. Kruse was pleased about the benefit her organization was to receive on account of the evening, but she also was happy to see that attendees enjoyed themselves.

“It went smoothly,” she observed. “People were happy and enjoyed seeing the personality of the players. It was a great turnout.”

Day 3 is on tap and features a number of stops on the way to the first-ever stop in Iowa.
