SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- On the night of April 15 at 6 p.m., the 50th Mission Support Group and Wing Staff Agencies can expect to witness a coming-together with obstacle course tackling, mysterious concoctions and a feast of heroic proportions.

These events of course, will be continuing with Air Force tradition -- the combat dining out.

The event is open to all members of MSG and Wing Staff Agencies as well as their guests others over the age of 18.

"The purpose of the dining out is to [increase] morale, but it's also good to do it with Wing Staff agencies. We can all come together, have a good time and get to know each other better," said Senior Airman Oceana Goodsell, 50 MSG self-assessment program manager and combat dining out organizer.

Combat dining out, which will be catered, will include the basic Rules of Engagement and grog bowl procedures of a typical dining out, but there may be tweaks to the ROEs, which will be released on a later date.

Unlike its more formal counterpart, dining out, combat dining out will be a more relaxed atmosphere, with more messiness.

Those attending would be wise to leave their mess dress uniform at home.

In exchange, military uniforms of any era with superhero flair are more appropriate attire. Attendees are encouraged to bring water guns, foam dart guns and water balloons as ammunition for the action.

"It's going to be a lot of fun. It will be a good time for everybody to relax and let your hair down," said Goodsell. "We encourage [attendees] to incorporate a super hero theme, so if people want to dress like the Avengers or wear your favorite superhero T-shirt with [Airman Battle Uniform] pants, please do."

Airman 1st Class Emily Moreno, 50th Force Support Squadron, and unit ticket sales representative, is excited for the upcoming festivities.

"I think the thing I look forward to the most is seeing different variations of the uniform, the different games we'll get to play and the obstacle courses. I think this is an awesome morale event," said Moreno. "I've never been to one before. I think this is a good chance to get to know other Airmen."
