On Thursday December 1st Operation Supply Drop Team Phoenix teamed up with the Arizona Deadpool Corps to bring some support to the VMFA 211 Avengers Squadron. VMFA-211 is a United States Marine Corps fighter attack squadron, currently consisting of F-35B Lightning II stealth STOVL strike fighter jets. Known as the "Wake Island Avengers" and the "Bastion Defenders", the squadron is based at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Arizona. After arrival in Yuma we checked our ride to make sure everything was ok. The flight crew gave it the once over and said we are good to go! Parked and hanger closed we moved on to setting up for the event. Well most did, some of us could not stay away from the bubble wrap. Who can? With our tables and photo area set up we started to get flooded with people. Everyone enjoyed the Santapools we had along for the ride. We have many more photos if you would like to see them. Link After eating some of the wonderful food that everyone brought to share, we started the raffle. Lets just say folks got a little excited for it! This was a awesome event at Yuma MCAS with the AZ Deadpool Corps supporting VMFA 211 Avengers. Thanks again for reading about the trip to Yuma MCAS and as always we look forward to sharing more of our fantastic experiences with all of you! if you would like to help Operation Supply Drop and its Teams please check out the Link for more info.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out another OSD team Phoenix event. Pokemon Pokemon Pokemon, its everywhere. Pokemon has invaded Team Phoenix too. On Sunday Aug 14th we held a Mandatory Fun Pokemon Meetup at Tempe Beach Park. Even with the sun blazing up the Beach park to over 100 many folks showed up before sunset. Soon as the sun set it was walking time, and boy did we. Walking around our marked off .5k we meet many new friends and a few Veterans and Active Duty members of our armed forces. Was great to see everyone out having a good time! Over the next 2 hours everyone tried to throw a little ball at some sort of creature on a phone trying to catch the most Pokemon for some Dback tickets.. but eventually the winner caught over 125 Pokemons!! wow As the Catching Contest ended, we counted up the totals announced the winner and then we started the raffle for Dback tickets, a Super Nintendo and a Nintendo. Everyone had a blast playing Pokemon at the park, we even got in a little trouble..Someone was getting thrown in the water one way or another. With the volunteers we had helping out, we had the numbers to be able to run the event and take the time to speak with some of our Active Duty and Veterans. Wanted to thank Rona, Chris, Chris, Kyle, Alicia, Mattie and Jeremy for helping making this event a fantastic fun time! Everyone had such a good time at this event we are doing another next month on Sept 4th.

Thanks for checking out another Team Phoenix event! Answering the call for support from Capt Hayek and Marine Core Air Station in Yuma to enhance a pool party they are holding for the Marine Aviation Weapon and Tactics Squadron one or MAWTS-1. We gathered up our troops to support this Poolparty which included, the Arizona Avengers, the AZ Deadpool Corps, AZ Elite Integration and many more. The Poolparty caravan had 9 cars with over 25 supporters! We all meet up across the street from the base, the 15 cosplayers, 2 cameraman, and 3 helpers. Some of us had lunch while others prepared our costumes. Arriving at the location on base we built up our raffle and giveaway table while the cosplayers prepared for the photo shoot. The pool was really nice with 2 story slides and a water fun area that included spray guns and dump buckets. We had a huge lawn area with lots of canopies to block the setting sun for what little time it had left. Set up like a true party there was over 60 feet of Subway sandwiches, 10+ coolers with everything to drink you could think of from juice to beer for those who are old enough. With some "new marines" around (as the Capt called them) we did not have to lift much as they were assigned to us. They later posed for some funny pictures.. As the kids swam, the cosplayes took pictures with everyone, Mattie handed out raffle tickets, MAWTS-1 enjoyed the party. We did some walk arounds in costume to draw more kids over to our cosplayers, but it was 110 out and we had weapons.. so ya.. that did not last long till a base police truck came up to us. We thought for sure we were about to get in trouble, nope they just wanted to check us out. Of course we took some time to sunbathe too, cosplayers need some sun too! As the party came to an end we raffled everything off the left table and gave the Col. Wellons the right tables contents and about 3 boxes filled with Krontrol Freeks, consoles, games, shirts, lootcrates and much more. Was great to see the Col Wellons pose for pictures with us and watch his entire unit enjoy it all. Everyone at the pool party got a lootcrate and a prize. Some got signed comic books, video games, some got consoles. At the end of the day everyone had a great time, enjoyed some funny pictures, and left with goodies. Capt Campbell and Col Wellons could not stop saying how impressed they are with the support. Operations Supply Drop Team Phx could not have done it without the Arizona Avengers, the AZ Deadpool Corps, Elite Integration, George Gifford, Pryat, Rona, Chris and Mattie. Thank you all for the support!
