Welcome to the Northwest Packer Backers!

Hello fellow Packer fans,

We, like many others around the country are great fans of the Green Bay Packers. As you well know, no matter where you go in this USA, you’ll always find Packer Fans gathering to watch the Pack play. The Green Bay Packers, unlike most teams, have a die hard following of fans everywhere. You have found us in the Great Northwest, as we celebrate our 24th year together.

Each Game Day during football season, you can find us at our Packer bars, The Mustard Seed Grill & Pub (NWPB HQ) in Seattle/Bellevue, WA or O’Blarney’s Irish Pub (Olympia Chapter) in Olympia with our fellow Packer Backers rooting for the team. We invite you to come on by and have a great time with the best Packer Fans in Washington!! You’ll see how much we have! Check out our Club links below to see photos and videos of our group on game days! Please check us out on Facebook and sign our Guestbook. Until then, thanks for visiting and GO PACK GO!!

NWPB Pep Rally and Tailgate was a great success!

We held two incredible events prior to the Packer game for the Pep Rally and Tailgate! Thank you to all of you who were able to come attend and participate in the Pep Rally and/or the Tailgate! The Pep Rally was a blast and it was a great pleasure to have Steve “The Owner” Tate and Mrs. Tate, in addition to St. Vince and his wife, Cheese Louise join us at the Pep Rally. Also a big Green and Gold thank you to Evan “Tex” Western for joining us and putting the word out about our Pep Rally and Tailgate on the Packer blog, ACME PACKING COMPANY! All Packer fans should check out this Packer blog, lots of great Packer stuff.

The Tailgate was an awesome event and a great success! Our tailgate was visited by many people including Mr. & Mrs. Crosby (Parents of Mason) and Mason’s wife, Molly. Also we were visited by Steve “The Owner” Tate in addition to NBC to do some interviews pre-game and Evan Siegle of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Once again, word spread like wildfire about the Northwest Packer Backer tailgate. We had many visitors from many, many different states and a few provinces of Canada! It was great to see the vast number of Packer fans joining us! We again held the BIGGEST AND BEST TAILGATE IN SEATTLE! The turnout was about 600 – 1000 Packer fans! Great job Packer fans showing Seattle how us Packer fans tailgate and support our team! It was very rewarding when I was able to speak with many of you who attended and express you gratitude and enjoyment at the tailgate. Again, thank you all for joining us!

SPECIAL THANKS to all those who volunteered to make this a great success! I want to recognize the following people for the work they had given volunteering at the tailgate. They are Terry & Tammy, Tim & Evonne, Keri, Angel and my wife Traci. Thank you all, I couldn’t have done this without your help! We have Pep Rally and Tailgate pics have been posted! Please view them Pep Rally pics here and Tailgate pics here. If you are unable to view the pictures, you will need to submit a request to join the Northwest Packer Backer Facebook group.

GO PACK!

2013 Season Wrap Up!

Hello Packer Fans and NWPB Club Members!

The season is now over for all teams in the NFL and I for one have been missing Packer football since their loss in the playoffs. I know you Packer fans feel the same way!  The Club itself another great season with over 100 Sponsors signing up and awesome donations to charity! We donated $3000 to Christmas House; $1000 to Annie’s Kitchen and donated over 1,500 lbs. of food to Northwest Harvest. Thank you all for participating to help us make a difference. There were many new faces packing the Seed game after game and it was a great time! Check back for off season news regarding Sponsor Meetings, get togethers and the annual picnic dates!

Well time to look forward to the 2014 Packer season and with that in mind; NFL Free Agency starts March 11th. I would like to see the Pack dip their toes in this year. Not to just sign someone to sign someone, but if the price is right and the personnel would fit, why not? The next event for the Packers is the NFL Draft, the date for that has changed. It used to be in April, but not it has moved to May 8th – 10th and starts on a Thursday and ends on Saturday.

I must say that the offense could use a couple pieces in the draft, but the defense definitely needs some help either via free agency or the draft. Just think there were so many woulda, shoulda, coulda moments last season. With the amount of injuries sustained, it was amazing that the Pack won the division and made it to the playoffs. I see this team being hungry next season and with the addition of more talent can make a run to achieve their quest of bringing the Lombardi trophy home to Green Bay.

Keep your eyes open for upcoming events for the Northwest Packer Backers in the near future. There will be posts on our Facebook page as well as emails sent out!

Until the next event, GO PACK!!

Packers Playoff Game Update

Hello Packer Fans and NWPB Club Members!
 
What an unbelievable season thus far. The win in Soldier Field against our oldest rivalry and the oldest rivalry in the NFL was literally amazing. Time for the Packers to keep that momentum going with a run in the playoffs! I for one felt like the Packers were going to win this game from the beginning. I really did not feel that the Packers were out of this game at any time! Well time for the defense to show up a little more next Sunday when we play the 49ers! Speaking about next Sunday…
 
Here is some helpful information for Packers fans.
 
1)   We will be the only playoff game starting at 1:40 pm kickoff.
2)   The game will be shown on all TV’s in the Mustard Seed.
3)   We will have sound of the game throughout the Mustard Seed.
4)   We will continue to have our charity raffle.
5)   Check out the photo from last Sunday’s Packers vs. Bears game below!
 
We do recommend arriving at least one hour prior to kick off to allow you to get your seating of choice! We will do our best to accommodate as many Packer fans as possible, but do expect all Packer fans to show their kindness and courteousness to the staff at the Mustard Seed and other patrons! Remember, Ken at the Mustard Seed provides us a great game day experience for all of us Packer fans to enjoy! If any Sponsor/Club Member or Packer fan has any questions, please email us at nwpackerbackers@gmail.com and we will answer you in a timely fashion.
 
We look forward to seeing you all! Until Sunday, GO PACK!!
 
Regards,
Jerry Garner
President
Northwest Packer Backers
