BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Teams and squadrons wanting to participate in the Oct. 2 Buckley Sports and Field day need to sign up at the Fitness Center by 11 p.m. Sept. 25.
The sports and field day is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with events throughout the day including a spin bike race, mush ball, ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, basketball, tug-o-war, 5k fun run/walk and a variety of sprinting races. The Top 3 and commanders will also play the Buckley Panthers in softball at 1:30 p.m.
"This is a great time to get away from your desk and support your squadron while it is still warm enough to play outside," said 2nd Lt. Jessica Gruver, Buckley Fitness Center officer in charge. "The main focus of the program is to promote camaraderie and a sense of esprit de corps amongst all the units and to provide a fun, competitive day away from the stresses of the work environment."
All dependents and spouses 18 and over, as well as Department of Defense civilians and military members, are welcome to participate.
