The Packers asked for up to 600 shovelers to come to the Fleet Farm gate on Wednesday morning.

The Packers provide the shovels and pay $12 an hour for the work, with payment immediately upon completion.

"This is the easiest way to get it. We have other ways. We try to snow blow it down, but it builds up as we go," says Todd Edlebeck, Facility Manager, Lambeau Field. "In three-and-a-half hours, we can have this bowl cleaned up with the help we get."

Shovelers must be 18 or older.

The Packers want to make sure the stadium is ready in plenty of time for hosting Washington on Sunday, Dec. 8.
