Packers fever hits Iowa

The Grand River Center in Dubuque served as host for the Tour’s first-ever tailgate party in Iowa.

The Grand River Center in Dubuque served as host for the Tour’s first-ever tailgate party in Iowa. The facility entertained nearly 2,000 people, all who came out to support the popular Camp Albrecht Acres in nearby Sherrill, Iowa.

The camp, which has been operating for more than 30 years, sits on 40 acres of wooded land and provides a unique environment for people with special needs. Camp Albrecht Acres operates exclusively on donations, fundraisers, camp fees and grants, and receives no financial assistance from local, state or federal government.

The evening started off in dramatic fashion as the tour bus pulled into the convention center to the music of Todd Rundgren’s ‘Bang the Drum All Day.’

The players were introduced and made their way to the stage which featured a digital video screen backdrop and was flanked by two large screen TVs on each side, creating a concert-like setting.

“We’re thrilled to be in Iowa for the first time on our Tailgate Tour,” Mark Murphy said to the cheers of the fans in the convention center. “There are Bears fans in Iowa, but we know there are a lot of Packers fans, especially here tonight.”

During the Q&A, the crowd learned that Jarrett Bush has a dance that is included in his pregame ritual. To the fans’ delight, and at the urging of Randall Cobb and Alex Green, Bush briefly demonstrated his moves on stage.

The Preston family from Dubuque, including Brian, Carrie and Taylor, enjoyed the event and appreciated the group making the stop in Iowa. Carrie, a 5-year-old sporting a pink Packers No. 52 jersey, also had the chance to show off her Clay Matthews post-sack pose.

Deb Rahe, executive director of Camp Albrecht Acres, was pleased with the event.

“It exceeded our expectations,” Rahe said. “It’s the biggest event we’ve ever done and will give us great recognition and long-term support.”

Overall, members of the tour enjoyed the day and relished in taking part in some Tour firsts.

“It was great to have the playground build today,” said Murphy as he reflected on Day 3. “That was a nice addition to the tour.”

The Tour will make its way back to Wisconsin Friday for another string of surprise stops on the way to Tomah.
