On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Wisconsin Favorites: Camping, cabin or resort?

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 7, 2014 – 10:00 am



Camping, cabin or resort? Where do you go for each in Wisconsin?


Tim Masthay:  I definitely prefer a cabin. I’ve stayed at a nice one up in the Minocqua area.

Ryan Pickett:  I prefer to go camping … you know like in a tent; but my wife prefers a resort so that’s what we usually do.

Bryan Bulaga:  I like the American Club down in Kohler. I always stay there when I’m in the area playing golf.

Josh Sitton: I like going to a cabin up north. I like the peace and quiet.

John Kuhn:  I definitely prefer the resort option. I love hitting the Dells, especially the Wilderness Lodge. They have a nice waterpark.

B.J. Raji:  I like going to the Wisconsin Dells area. There’s always so much going on there during the summer months.

Here is more on lodging in Wisconsin, provided by Travel Wisconsin:

Whether you’re in a tent, cabin or resort, any night spent in Wisconsin is a great night. If you prefer tent, choose from remote, middle-of-nature-sites or action-packed campgrounds with games, a pool, sports equipment, and more. Plus, did you know you can camp all year?

Most Wisconsin state parks keep a portion of their sites open for winter campers – some even have electrical hookups – and you can snowshoe into a wilderness area in the Nicolet and Chequamegon National Forests up in the Northwoods.

Not much for tents, but still like the outdoors? A calm night in a cabin in the Northwoods offers the fresh scent of pine, peace and tranquility. For the resort-type, spend the night at the American Club in Kohler or the Grand Geneva Spa & Resort, where you can enjoy amenities like massages and five-course meals. If you’re staying in Wisconsin, you will be nothing short of impressed.

    I prefer a cabin – chosen at random, when the owners aren’t there.

    Face it Packer fans. Your team is on the decline. The window has shut for the dynasty that never was. Your team was almost blacked out because no one wanted to go watch them lose again in the playoffs. The problem is this team is led by an arrogant coach and an arrogant QB. They think they can just walk in and win because they are fudePackers. Sorry Packers, NFL doesnt work that way. Have fun with a future of mediocraty!!!! BLOW PACK BLOW!!!!

    Packers are done! They are tasteless and hapless just as their fans are.

    Man, the haters on the site are incredible, ha ha. I’m a fan and I follow the site and I saw this an hour or two after it was posted. I don’t know how the non-fans have enough time/energy to devote to hating the team.

    Oh well, whatever floats your boat. As for me, I look forward to next year’s Packers :)

    We hate your team because they and their fans are so full of themselves it’s funny. Face it, your team is on the decline. 2010 was pure luck! A-ROG is about done. He cant stay healthy, your defense sucks, and Lacy is average at best. Packers go 8-8 in 2014. Bet on it!!!

    I recant my earlier, troglodyte statement. Packer fans are, in a word, winsome. The Packers are a team on the rise; 2010 was the start of a habit, not an outlier; Rodgers is bar-none, the best QB in the world; your injury-maligned defense is chock full of promising young players for next year; Lacy, a virtual shoo-in for rookie of the year, was rated one of the top-5 running backs in the league by PFF. The Packers will go 11-5 in 2014. Bet on it!! Again, I apologize for being an uniformed, trolling clown.

    I thought the blog was about camping, cabin or resort? If I am in WI give me a cabin with an excellent heater or air conditioner. Too old to be roughing it in a tent.

    Sounds like a munch of moronic infiltrators on our site. I guess some people think they can make themselves feel better by trying to tear others down. Psyc 101! Or, as Forest Gump would say, “stupid is as stupid does”! Some idiots just never get it, there is no way for us to actually know they are idiots until they open their mouths!

    Thanks for the great season Packers! Next year we stay healthy and improve our chances.
