Packers Looking for Shovelers to Clear Lambeau

Posted Thursday, December 20, 2012 --- 12:02 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- With the Green Bay area expected to receive 10 inches or more of snow, the Packers are looking for several hundred people to shovel snow at Lambeau Field.

The team put out the call Thursday for up to 600 shovelers. Workers need to be at least 15 years old and they'll be paid $10 per hour. The team provides the shovels, and the work will start Friday at 8 a.m. and continue as needed.

The shoveling ritual can be a frequent occurrence at Lambeau, an outdoor stadium that can get heavy snowfall in a short time. Heating coils under the field help keep the playing surface snow-free, but snow can pile up pretty quickly in the stands.

Green Bay hosts the Tennessee Titans at noon Sunday.
