    Each year a member of (CA, CO, FL) in good standing is selected and recognized as 'Alumni of the Year' (AOY).  This program was initiated by then AFTAC CC, Colonel Shaffer in 1995 and was intended to recognize the selected alumni association member at the Center Annual Awards Banquet along with other appropriate ceremonies.  The Alumni conducts an Annual Snowball that follows the Christmas Season.  The AOY is announced at that affair and AOY's from other units often travel to Florida and attend that event.

    Softball
     
    Lovingly called "The Toilet Bowl"
      2012  2013   
     The Toilet Bowl is a softball competition between the various directorates.  It was started at the 1155th Tech Ops Division and the HQ decided to continue the tradition.  It gives the members time to play against each other and a way to have an outing for their families.
