We are back!

We are back! We now have this awesome upgraded website. We did our best to streamline everything in order to make it as simple as possible for you to access your content. Check out the new public portal which does not require a WebGuy login to see the blogs and now also has access to our free public photo gallery. 
 
In the Members Area, you will have all the great WebGuy content you are used to, plus the reorganized class specific pages with links to BCT by squadron and every major class specific event as they occur. 
 
Thanks for your patience while the site was down.  We hope you enjoy the new look and organization.
 

Parent Member Plus Gift Shop Offer

Parent Member Plus Members,
 
Here is a special offer for you today in our AOG Gift Shop. With each order over $20, we'll throw in a free Spirit Tumbler with Joe Falcon on it!

How does the offer work?  When you go the store, just shop as you normally would, placing over $20 of purchases in your shopping cart.  Once you go to checkout, after putting in your member number (that gives you your 15% member discount), you'll see where you can put in a Discount Code.  Put in code PMP2014.  That will subtract .01 from your order, which will tell our shippers to add a free Spirit Tumbler when they ship your order. 
 
Thanks for the support you give to your cadets each and every day!

Free Parking At Colorado Springs Airport 1 Nov - 31 Dec 2014


As an enticement for travelers, the Colorado Springs Airport announced it will provide free short-term and long-term parking for the holiday season, plus 50 percent off for valet parking. The free offer will continue two full months, from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31.
 
In a release, airport officials said the benefit was offered “to show appreciation to our community for continued patronage. COS plans to bring further offers and promotions throughout the holiday season.”

Website Upgrades!!

Just wanted to remind everyone that the website will be down tomorrow, all day, October 21st. We are performing upgrades to the site that will make it easier for you to view content and easier for us to get that content to you. The website will back up the following day on October 22nd. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to providing you a better WebGuy experience!

Combat Search and Rescue Demonstration

Check out page 123 of the Military Training gallery for some great pictures of the Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) Demonstration that took place on the terrazzo yesterday. The cadets had the opportunity to see 2 A-10s, 2 HH-60 Pavehawks, and a C-130 perform a fully fledged Combat Search and Rescue operation demonstration. The Combat rescue officers and PJs came and "rescued" the commandant who was then taken away in one of the helicopters. Afterwards the cadets were able to look at the helicopters and talk to the pilots. 


Website Upgrade and Maintenance.

Hey
Families! We are going to be taking the WebGuy website off line next
Tuesday for the entire day for an upgrade and maintenance. When we come
back up, we will have a new look and an expanded public portal. We
also are making it easier to find the photos you are looking for. To
mark the event we will also have a one-day special in our on-line store
just for you Parent Member Plus members. While the site is down, our
Facebook and Instagram pages will still be active, so check there for
updates.

Intramural Championships

Happy Friday!
 
The Intramural Championship Finals in Ultimate Frisbee and Softball were contested on the Terrazzo last night.  Congratulations to Cadet Squadron 21, winners of Ultimate Frisbee and Cadet Squadron 6, winners of Softball.  There are 600 photos of all the action in the Extra-curricular gallery starting on page 161.  Enjoy!!
 

Flying Team Regional Competition!

The USAFA is currently hosting the regional competion for the National Intercollegiate Flying Association. The USAFA Flying Team is joined by five other schools in the region to include Colorado Northwestern Community College, Metropolitan State University, Utah State University, Westminster College and Utah Valley University. The teams were required to plan their events in the morning

 

Then taxied their planes out onto the runway

 
They then performed the graded Navigation portion, where GPS units were used to track the accuracy of each teams ability to navigate to predetermined points.

 

 
The next event was the Message Drop. The teams were tasked to drop a square wood box from 200ft above the ground onto a target roughly 3ft x 3ft in size. Pretty sure USAFA won.  Their drop was within 13 feet of the target.
 

 
The next event was the precision landing in which the teams were graded on the quality of a landing within a certain area.

 

 
We'll let you know the results of it as soon as we get them!

More Air Force v Navy Pictures!

While it was over a week ago, we were able to acquire some more photos from the football team's game against Navy. It's always good to relive such a glorious win over Navy Laughing
