SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --

Team Schriever members, 18 years and older, and their guests are invited to put on their best Star Wars or Star Trek-themed attire and attend the 50th Space Wing combat dining out June 23.

 

Any military attire, past or present, is an acceptable pairing with your space movie-themed wardrobe.

 

“It is fun for everyone and will get people involved in the event,” said Staff Sgt. Oceana Goodsell, 50th Mission Support Group and event coordinator.  

 

Social hour begins at 5 p.m. at the base track, where attendees can socialize and purchase drinks. Shortly after, guests will also take part in grog-related mischief and enjoy dinner.

 

“The games are a surprise,” Goodsell said. “We don’t want anyone getting the upper hand.”

 

According to Goodsell, 50th MSG ambassadors are putting on this event, and it is the first dining out where the entire 50th Space Wing is invited.

 

Goodsell explained that after last year’s excellent turnout, they decided to open it up to the entire 50 SW.

 

For this year’s dining out, there will be four tents set up to the west of the track, one for 50th Network Operations Group, 50 MSG, 50th Operations Group and wing staff agencies, where guests can set up and hang out.

 

“The planning process for a combat dining out takes tremendous effort from a well-established team,” said 1st Lt. Sarah D’Alessandro, Airman and Family Services Flight event coordinator. “Last year's event took nearly eight months to plan and we could not have done it without the hard work and dedication of our planning team and all the volunteers.”

 

D’Alessandro will attend the event this year as well, and said it will be similar to last year’s, but on a larger scale. Attendees are allowed to pitch tents and camp out, creating more of an all-day event.

 

“CDO's are all about camaraderie, esprit-de-corps and bringing members together for a fun night outside of work. This is such an important thing to do, especially with the nature of our jobs,” said D’Alessandro.

 

Ticket sales end Friday.

 

For more information about the event, or to purchase tickets, email Senior Airman Ashley Boylan at 567-5060, or visit Building 210, Room 146A.
