From a press release by the Packers Hall of Fame:
*** Packers Hall of Fame Launches ***
** Digital Archive of Packers History **
April 20, 2010 Green Bay, Wis. – After two years of behind the scenes work, the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame has enhanced their online presence with a multi-faceted approach:
* A new public website (packershalloffame.com) to promote the organization’s mission to protect and preserve the history of the Packers.
* A members-only online area (packershalloffame.com/access-pass) with the objective of ‘keeping Packers history alive.’ This elaborate online system launched in mid-January with 250 pages of content, hundreds of photos, more than 10 videos, trivia and poll questions and more. New content will be added each month with the goal of building a complete digital archive of Packers history — including video, audio, and written stories from fans, coaches, players, and staff about the ‘most storied franchise in all of sports.’
* Individual websites for each individual who has been inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame (in process — and scheduled to be completed by the end of 2011). See an example at daverobinson.packershalloffame.com.
Fans can get their ‘All Access Pass’ to the members-only online area by signing up at packershalloffame.com and paying a nominal monthly fee.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, independent of the Green Bay Packers, with the mission to preserve and protect the history of the Packers. It was established in 1967 and, since then, 144 individuals have been inducted at the organization’s annual Induction Banquet. The Green Bay Packers are the only sport franchise with both a facility-based (in Lambeau Field) and an online (All Access Pass) Hall of Fame. Fans can learn more at packershalloffame.com.
I have had the opportunity to view some of the plans the Packers Hall of Fame website has to offer, and from a fans perspective, they are simply not to be believed. It will truly serve as an online extension of the physical Hall of Fame at Lambeau Field, with some never before seen Packers history at your fingertips.
I encourage all Packers fans to check out the Packers Hall of Fame website.
