As the season has finally changed over from spring to summer this past weekend, we have a long layoff ahead of us before the start of training camp. The Green Bay Packers are on their own from now until their report date for camp, on July 29th.
However, fans wanting to see the team under the lights at Lambeau Field will have their opportunity to do so starting today. If you want to be in the stadium for the team's Family Night practice in early August, make sure you are on your computer later this morning.
