JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas (AFNS) --
The Air Force Services Center will begin rolling out the first leg of a new free BMX stunt tour to five installations this month.
Current tour dates and locations are:
The tour is expected to expand to additional installations as the schedule progresses.
With the tour, each installation will host two shows from the BMX Pros Trick Team that includes a special youth-oriented anti-bullying themed demonstration, said Shandy Scott, AFSVC Business and Recreation Branch chief.
"We know our Airmen, Guardians and families dedicate themselves to the missions asked of them and we understand the importance of delivering programs that allow them to unwind and make memories," said John Kundinger, AFSVC Business and Recreation Division chief. "Strengthening our military communities is what we do.”
Kundinger said, events like this BMX tour allow Airmen and families to enjoy themselves and to find the boost needed to tackle whatever comes their way next.
Additionally, with the success and popularity of events featuring dirt bikes, motocross, inline skating and BMX stunts, Scott said AFSVC was looking to create experiences for all age groups and expand their interest in outdoor recreation opportunities.
“Aside from providing memorable experiences for our military communities, the events offer an opportunity for installation outdoor recreation teams and force support squadron activities to re-introduce their brands to Airmen, Guardians and families and really showcase everything their services teams offer,” Scott said.
