Packers Draft Party Set For April 28



The Green Bay Packers and Mills Fleet Farm Monday announced plans for the fourth annual Packers Draft Party, set for April 28 at the Lambeau Field Atrium.

The event, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (doors open at 10:00), will feature draft coverage on two large television projection screens, and the Packers' flagship radio station, Newsradio 620 WTMJ, will be on hand to provide coverage and analysis throughout the day.

Tickets for the event, priced at $25, go on sale Thursday, March 1, at 18 Wisconsin Mills Fleet Farm locations and must be purchased in person. Children 3 and younger are free.

Packers GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy will address fans in attendance, and Chairman/CEO Bob Harlan and President/COO John Jones will make appearances as well.

The Atrium again will be a Wi-Fi "Hot Spot," continuing the popular addition from last year's party. The "Hot Spot" will allow attendees who bring wireless-enabled laptops to log on to their favorite draft Web sites and follow the day's action online. Computer stations also will be available that will enable fans to track draft information via the Web. A limited amount of tables will have power available and a charging station also will be set up for users to recharge their laptop computer batteries.

In addition to televised draft coverage and WTMJ's radio program, the day will feature appearances by Packers players. The players will participate in a question-and-answer session on stage with WTMJ Radio as well as sign autographs for attendees via a ticketed session. Attendees will receive a ticket for one randomly assigned autograph session when entering the party.

Other features of the day include:

-Commemorative 2007 NFL Draft notebook for all attendees.

-Question-and-answer sessions with Packers players and team personnel, interactive games for kids and adults.

-Viewing opportunity of Lambeau Field.

-Free entry for a chance to win door prizes, including autographed Packers items and Mills Fleet Farm gift cards.

-Trivia Contest.

-Food and drink will be available for purchase at Curly's Pub, Hall of Fame Grill, Frozen in Time and Atrium eateries.

Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early, as a limited number are available due to the Lambeau Field Atrium's capacity.
