Field Day Explanation

This upcoming Friday is Field Day. It is the culminating event of 1st Beast. It is possibly the most fun event in BCT. The squadrons compete in each event in order to hopefully earn the title of "BCT 1 Field Day Champions". Here are some shots from the past couple years to give you a feel of what some of the Field Day events are like.

NOTE: For those parents that are close by and willing to make the trip to USAFA, Field Day starts at 0630 and ends at 1030 on the Athletic Fields. You won't be able to see your Basic face to face but you might be able to catch a glimpse of them participating in the events. Spectators are allowed to sit on the bleachers next to the athletic fields, but are not allowed to interact with Basics in any way.
