Preconference Trip

Tuesday, June 12, 2007: Tour of Miller Park and Pettit Center

From the outside, Miller Park (home of the Milwaukee Brewers) is a grand structure with its facade consisting of red brick, arched windows, and clock tower at the main entrance. Directly outside Miller Park are statues of Milwaukee icons, such as Hank Aaron. One of the most impressive aspects of Miller Park is the retractable roof. The 12,000 ton, seven-panel roof has a unique fan shape design. It can open or close in ten minutes and sits 175 feet above the playing field.

The Pettit National Ice Center is an official U.S. Olympic Training Facility, located in the heart of Southeastern Wisconsin. One of only a handful in the world, the 3,000-seat center houses one of the fastest 400-meter indoor speed skating ice ovals and two international size ice rinks used for hockey, figure skating, and short track speed skating.

The preconference tour is limited to 35 and the $16 fee includes transportation and snacks.
