|Fans can experience Packers training camp|
By Gary Ridderbusch
With the Milwaukee Brewers falling into a midseason slump, it might be time for North Woods sports fans to turn their attention to football.
That’s right. The Green Bay Packers’ Ray Nitschke Field will greet players and fans alike this Thursday afternoon, July 26, for the opening of the 67th edition of training camp. Twenty practices are scheduled through Aug. 30.
According to the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau and a 2010 study by AECOM, training camp, along with Packers Family Night presented by Bellin Health, will attract an estimated 100,000 visitors from across the nation and as many as 20 foreign countries from July 26 through the final open practice Aug. 30. It’s an opportunity for Packers fans to watch their team prepare for the 2012-’13 season.
