Packers Plan Party, Picks Contest

Join the first-round festivities on Thursday, April 22, at Curly's Pub; team awarding prizes to the top draft prognosticator.

Along with the Packers' free draft party, the team is holding a Draft Challenge online draft pick contest.

Because the first day of the draft is moving to a Thursday and includes just the first round, the Packers have downsized their annual draft party to a free event at Curly's Pub inside Lambeau Field. The first-come, first-served event will feature appearances by general manager Ted Thompson, coach Mike McCarthy and president/CEO Mark Murphy, along with other Packers personnel and players.

The event starts at 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 22, with the first round of the draft beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Rounds 2-3 begin at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, April 23, and Rounds 4-7 begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 24. Curly's will have food and drink specials as well as contests and prizes for those two days.

Meanwhile, the Packers' Draft Challenge calls for participants to pick the top five players chosen in the draft, plus the Packers' No. 1 selection.

 The winner will receive a prize package valued at $300 that includes a Packers prize bucket, autographed items from Greg Jennings and B.J. Raji, a one-year Championship Membership to the Packers Partner Club of Champions Packers Fan Club, four tickets to Packers Family Night, a one-night hotel stay and gift cards.
