The Untimely Passing of Don Gorder Print E-mail

Don and Andi Gorder have been members of the Cheddarhead Pack of Houston since 'day one.' 

In viewing the slideshow depicting snapshots of Don's life, it was hard to find -- indeed there were very few -- pictures when he was not wearing either Packers or Badgers gear.

A "Celebration of His Life" memorial service was held at St. John Lutheran Church on Thursday, July 7.

This is a photo of the sideboard with the guestbook, some flowers, a picture on Don in his hospital Packer Gear, the Superbowl 45 trophy (no, not the real one) and a deck of cards (he will be missed by his Sheepshead playing buddies).



At Andi's request, in tribute to Don, members of CHPH engaged in our traditional "Who Are We?" cheer. Andi and their son David participated, with David leading the cheer. 

Don was a great guy who will be sorely missed... but rest assured that when the crowd at Lambeau Field is panned, we will see him sitting on the 50 yard line.

GOD bless you Don, and thanks for everything. It was truly a pleasure to have known you.  We will miss you.

Amazing Grace Golf Tournament Fundraiser Print E-mail

Scott and Becky Scasny, huge Packer fans and long-time CHPHers, have asked for CHPH Members to come out and support their "Amazing Grace" Charity Golf Tournament this coming Saturday, 6/19.

CLICK HERE to see the brochure with all the information.
As most of you already know, Becky and Scot lost their daughter Grace to Neuroblastoma - a devastating disease that claims many children - and hold this fund-raiser every year to help support research, patient support and treatment programs. This is a cause worth our support, and hopefully, thru fundraisers such as theirs, a cure can be found.

There will be food, a silent auction, and fun and games for the kids. There is no cost to get in the tournament.
Though this not "Packer" related, it is "member" related; the kind of thing that we should be doing for members of our club whenever possible. All proceeds go to the Nueroblastoma Cancer Foundation in Grace's name.
Thanks, and look forward to seeing you there.


Happy Thanksgiving watching the Packers - Kitties Print E-mail

First of all, to all our Club Members and Packer Fans everywhere: HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


This Thanksgiving Day, the Packers travel to Detroit to take on the Kitties. Kickoff time is 11:30.

Now we know this is early, but it is also a good thing. You won't be working, so getting up in time to come to the game should not be a problem. And, with the game starting at 11:30, there is plenty of time to get home and ready for Thanksgiving Dinner! A Win-Win situation.

And when we win, it will be a WIN-WIN-WIN!

Also, Nick's is serving Turkey and all the trimings during the game. Yes, there will be brats as usual, but with all the talk of turkey wouldn't it be nice to sample a bit of Nick's turkey while watching some Packer football? You betcha! If you have a dish that goes with turkey dinner and you want to share it with your fellow Packer fans, bring it along. All contributions are encouraged and welcome.

One last thing. The issue with the big screen television at Nick's has been repaired. It was simply a bad cable connector and it has been replaced. No worries about the reception now!

So, Happy Thanksgiving. Come and join your fellow Packer fans for some turkey (and brats) while watching the Packers cook the Kitties.


Private Party Set for the Nov 15th Cowboys Game Print E-mail


This week our Packers will take on the Cowgirls at Lambeau Field.  Kick off time is 3:15 PM.

For those who were not at last Sunday's game, an announcement was made that this game will be a "closed, private party" at Nick's for CHPHers and Packer fans with a few exceptions.

Lambeau South will be open to Dallas fans who are accompanied by a CHPHer or non-member Packer fan; however, the CHPHer or Packer fan will be responsible for keeping the Dallas fan in check.  If your guest gets unruly, offensive or rude, they will be removed and so will you.

If a CHPHer or non-member Packer fan becomes unruly, offensive or rude, they will also be asked to leave the premises.

Nick has asked that some of his 'regulars', the ones that are with us for every game, also be admitted as his guests. This is something that he will regulate and be responsible for. The same rules will apply to them.

We will have monitors at the doors.
It is unfortunate that we have to resort to these measures but this promises to be a highly-charged, emotional game for all. We will not have a repeat of the problems we experienced during the last Cowgirls game.

As a reminder....if you see a problem, immediately advise Nick, a staff member or a CHPH committee member.  Do not engage the disrupter.

We promote a family atmosphere on gamedays and as such, we ask that as adults, each member be aware of their language during a game.  We want our young Packer fans engaged in the CHPH gameday experience and want their parents to feel comfortable with bringing their kids to Lambeau South.  Let's keep it that way.

Party time starts at 2:00. We suggest you come early to get a seat.
New members:  If you did not receive your CHPH shirt, be sure to see a committee member on Sunday.
