Green Bay Packers Training Camp - 8/1 thru 4/11
Photos By Gary Wolter

I spent my summer vacation at Training Camp - what a great place to get a preview of the 2011 Packers!
Outdoor practices are held at Ray Nitschke Field, which is actually 2 fields layed end-to-end. One is 100 yards, the other is 70 yards.

That's the Don Hutson Center across the field, where indoor practices are held.

Warm-up time.







Jermichael Finley looking svelt - down 20 lbs. from last year.


I'm sure you are familiar with the bike tradition at training camp - kids line their bikes up at the exit area from the practice field, and as the players leave, the kids offer their bike. The player chooses a kid who then takes the player's helmet and pads so the player can ride the bike about a half mile back to the locker room at Lambeau Field.

My nieces come to practice, along with my brother Dale...

And my sister Linda.

And who should I run in to at Curly's Pub in Lambeau Field? Why it's BPB'ers Bob and Bonnie James, along with tons of their family!

More of my family (yes it was a reunion)...cousins Matt and Wendy and nephew Brian.

Culry's Pub overlooks the players parking area at Lambeau, so you can enjoy lunch while you watch the players come and go.

Look! There's Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy.

I took the stadium tour, which starts in the atrium.

Each full-time employee at Lambeau received a Super Bowl Ring. This one belongs to a lady manning the fan info booth.

Next, outside to the Curly Lambeau/Vince Lombardi statues.

Then, views from one of the luxury boxes.




The "Legends" area at Lambeau containing Paul Hornung's 1956 Heisman Trophy.

Now we begin a walk out the actual player's tunnel onto the field - just a pic on the wall of the locker room.

As you get close to the entrance to the field they pump crowd noise through the speakers so you get an idea what a player hears as he...


......walks out onto Lambeau Field - hallowed ground here.
