DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. -- As luck would have it, the sun smiled down on Dobbins Air Reserve Base this year during the third annual 94th Airlift Wing Team Day.

Encouraged to wear jerseys of their favorite sports team, many participants chose to wear garb from alma maters or hometown football teams.

Col. Timothy E. Tarchick, 94th Airlift Wing commander, an Ohio State University fan, was seen sporting his bright red Buckeye jersey. Linking up with other Buckeyes within the wing, he opened up the team day games with a demonstration of Ohio State education by spelling out O-H-I-O in college football fashion.

"We work here every day, and spend more time with the people we work with than our own families," said Tarchick. "This is the perfect opportunity to get to know them better and do some team building."

Team day participants were divided up by group, with the wing staff and Aeromedical Staging Squadron forming a combined fourth team. Representatives from each team participated in events such as Win, Lose or Draw, ping pong, air hockey, cornhole, football toss, volleyball and tennis.

Tech Sgt. Richard F. Conyers Jr. won five points for the AW/ASTS team's overall score by playing tennis.

"This day was important for the wing's morale," said Conyers. "It goes a long way to break up the usual day-to-day grind. I would like to see this implemented during a drill weekend so that the Reservists can also participate and benefit from team day as well."

The competition was stiff between the operations, maintenance and mission support groups, with the wing staff/ASTS team lagging slightly behind the pack. At the end of the day, the mission support group was awarded the team day Commander's Trophy.

"The 2010 first annual team day was awarded to the operations group," said Tarchick. "So, this year the mission support group will be added to the back of the trophy. It was a great day, and we will do it again next year."
