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 Mandatory Fun event! This time around we teamed up with Phoenix Comicon to bring our group of Veterans, Active Duty and their families to the PHX Comicon. Group members Rona, Oscar, Andilynn, Rick, Matt, Derrick, Alex, Rick, Susan and families all had some Mandatory Fun with Operation Supply Drop Team Phoenix at the Phoenix Comicon! The PHX Comicon is now the second biggest Comicon held in the USA. What is a Comicon you ask? Well Phoenix Comicon is a multigenre entertainment and comic book convention held annually in Phoenix. It was founded as the Phoenix Cactus Comicon in June 2002, and originally consisted of a one-day six-hour with 432 people in attendance. PHXCC plays host to comic related panels, programming events, art contests, and autograph signings for all ages. It is now a four-day event (Thursday-Sunday) with over 100k attending this year, 2016! Originally showcasing comic books, science fiction/fantasy and film/television, and related popular arts, the convention has expanded over the years to include a larger range of pop culture elements, such as horror, anime, manga, animation, toys, collectible card games, video games, webcomics, and fantasy novels. The excitement was very palpable as the hours counted down to go time for the PHXCC. As we all meet up at the Hyatt before going off to explore everything the Comicon has to offer it was clear that some of us were more ready then others.. Everyone got some of our fantastic OSD shirts to rock and we went off to meet with some artists and take group photos with the Arizona Avengers. We are honored and privileged to have had the chance to talk to Adam Orndorf, Michael Martin(Veteran), Steven Pulawa(Awesome Guy!), Dan Jurgens, Fugizi Art, and Chad Hardin. They took the time out of their crazy busy tables to speak with our group members, each of them, one by one, even signing their programs and anything else they had with them! Class act gentlemen, Thanks for your support! After meeting with all of these fantastic gentlemen we headed upstairs for some group pictures with the Arizona Avengers. In the Hall of Heros they had whole areas set up for Resident Evil, Star Wars, DC Comics, AZ Avengers, and much more, each area was filled with props, sets, cosplayers and more making the pictures really cool! After meeting the artists and taking the group picture with the Arizona Avengers we parted ways and let them enjoy everything that the Phoenix Comicon has to offer. Every OSD group member in attendance took home a signed program with everyone artist we meet autograph, personal signed work by an artist, an OSD shirt and more! OSDpool took this chance to come out of his hotel room and have some Mandatory Fun talking about OSD to everyone!! Dressing up as something that catches everyones eye and makes them smile is fantastic! More to come very soon, OSDpool will be back.. Mandatory fun at the PHXCC was a fantastic time with Team Phoenix and its supporters! We meet some new people, enjoyed some good laughs and did so with fellow veterans and their families!
