Green Bay, WI
You voted for it and now the plans have been made! The dates are set for Tuesday, September 3 – Saturday, September 7, 2019. We will be staying at the Radisson Hotel and Convention Center Green Bay, 2040 Airport Drive, Green Bay, WI 54313. The Radisson Hotel & Conference Center Green Bay is nestled in a wooded area directly across from Green Bay’s Austin Straubel Airport. It is conveniently located within easy access to all major highways and provides ample, free parking. Complimentary airport shuttle service is also available. Set in a traditional Northeast Wisconsin landscape, the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center offers 354 beautiful rooms complete with amenities such as in-room movies, voicemail, data ports, hairdryers, iron and ironing board, coffee and coffee makers, and state of the art security key lock system. For those that require them, handicapped accessible rooms are available. We have a 3:00 p.m. check-in time and an 11:00 a.m. check-out time, although if rooms are ready, they will check you in as they become available. Our rate will be $109.00 plus tax of 15.5%. This rate is good three (3) days prior to and following the reunion, on a space available basis if there is NOT a Green Bay Packers home game. If there is a home game the price for the Saturday and Sunday following our Reunion will be $125 a night then $109 for the Monday night. This means if you want to come early or stay later, call and make your reservations as soon as possible. The hotel’s phone number is (920) 494-7300. Rates quoted are per night, and includes a full hot breakfast buffet for up to two guests per room. If you are coming to the reunion but are not staying at the hotel, you must pay for your breakfast.
“All Work and No Play”
In addition to the state of the art conventions and meeting facilities, the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center offers several of the best entertainment and leisure options in the area.
The hotel is located adjacent to the Oneida Casino. One of Wisconsin’s largest casino, it features 36 blackjack tables, 2,800 reel slot machines, videos and high-stakes bingo complex. Shuttle bus service and valet parking is also available.
Dining Options & Hotel Amenities:
Pine Tree Grill offers a unique fine dining experience, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. They proudly serve Oneida Nation Beef as well as a variety of other unique options in a relaxed atmosphere.
Noodle Bar offering lunch and dinner. While you’re trying your luck at the Casino, enjoy a taste of the Far East at the Asian Noodle Bar.
Purcell’s Lounge is the place to be! Open daily at 3:00pm, go in and enjoy one of their new Martini’s or freshly-squeezed juice drinks. Also hot or cold sandwiches & appetizers are available. You can also enjoy a cocktail outside on Purcy’s Porch, their outdoor deck just off Purcell’s Lounge.
Enjoy Oneida Casino’s newest addition with their food court which is attached to the Radisson Hotel, featuring Boar’s Head Deli, Chicken Fry & Grillmasters. You may also enjoy Packers heritage at Lombardi’s Sports Bar & Grill located inside the Oneida Casino.
The indoor pool is open 24 hours Sunday through Thursday and until midnight on the weekends. Unwind in the whirlpool and sauna or work out in our newly remolded fitness center.
Need copies, send a fax, or use of a computer? TheBusiness Center is available 24 hours a day and has a Federal Express pick-up daily Monday through Friday for your urgent delivery needs.
The Coffee Shop which is located in the hotel lobby and proudly serves Starbucks® where you can enjoy a hot Mocha, Latte, or Cappuccino.
Our reunion will also have some great tours planned. The current thoughts are to have: Wednesday (a day touring Door County with various stops throughout the day; including the Maritime Museum and culminating in a traditional Fish Boil dinner before returning to the hotel), Thursday (choice of either a tour of Lambeau Field and the Packer’s Hall of Fame OR a city tour to include the Railroad Museum and local brewery), and Friday (tour of the Oneida Indian Reservation and a wine and cheese tasting). Additionally, we are setting aside Thursday evening so we can have individual ship gatherings.
We will have a fantastic hospitality space on the 1st floor of the hotel where I plan to hold our Welcome Social and which will allow us to bring in our own snacks, drinks, and alcoholic beverages. It even has a fireplace and a small kitchenette. We also have a space (OUTDOORS) to hold our now famous Limburger Cheese Social, which we will plan on having Thursday afternoon following the tours.
I am still working on our Saturday night banquet dinner which will include desert/coffee/tea and will be preceded by photographs by Classic Imaging. There will probably also be a cash bar during the banquet. We will also have some special entertainment; which I will save as a surprise. Afterward, we will have our annual raffle and 50/50 drawing. If you have any ideas for making our 2019 Reunion in Green Bay even better please give me a call at (803) 847-9154 or you can email me at: email@example.com.
SEE YOU IN GREEN BAY!!!
