Need to lose those calories in preparation for Thanksgiving? Head to the Fitness Center’s Turkey Trot on November 19 (page 18).

Looking ahead, the festive season is just around the corner and on December 1 will see RAF Mildenhall’s Christmas Tree lighting in Washington Square. We’ll have all the attractions of a Christmas market - grab a drink, browse the stalls and listen to our carol singers!

We’ve got a great British Christmas tradition coming to Mildenhall on December 10 - the pantomime, with a performance of Robin Hood at the Bob Hope Community Center. Great fun for the entire family –audience participation is a must! Get your tickets in advance from the Bob Hope Community Center.

MIL-D-CON 2022 ROUNDUP!

Last month we at 100 FSS hosted the biggest event of the year - MIL-D-CON! Held Friday through Sunday on September 29, October 1 and October 2 at the Galaxy Club Complex, it was an event for the books! Responding to the positive feedback about our virtual content in years past, we once again provided a multi-platform experience!

We offered virtual content on Friday and Sunday, with the live and in-person experience on Saturday.

So, what is Mil-D-Con you ask? Well, let us tell you about it! It is a comic con for all! For

will enjoy this narrative. For those who haven’t... you’ll wish you had!

The 100 FSS Mil-D-Con Experience begins the week prior when you may have noticed a couple superheroes walking among us on base as Captain America and Captain Carter visited. Then, as days go by, you’ll see equipment, trucks, cones and tape being put up. A couple days before take-off, you may be disgruntled to see the club parking lot blocked off, but you will be amazed to witness the set-up of the 180/40 ft entry/vendor tent. A physical

Then, the day before, Thor, Superman, Wonder Woman and Spiderman arrive... well, life-size replicas, that is.

Friday (and Sunday) is virtual day. On all social media, folks were entertained with Mil-DCon greetings by actor Dean Cain and numerous others. Cool and creative video by staff and volunteers filled our followers’ feeds. And on that Friday evening, In the FSS BHCC Gamer Room, we hosted a virtual Q&A with legendary gamer LEGIQN. You can watch whole discussion at youtu.be/L-sKpFBsMjE

And now it is the night-

RAF Mildenhall's biggest event of the year gets bigger!
RAF MILDENHALL NEWS
6 | NOVEMBER 2022

before-and-morning-of. Late into the night and in the wee hours of the morning, dozens of staff are putting up tables, backdrops, balloons, signage, lights, electrical, and stuffing thousands of goody bags. And then it was time for over 4,000 visitors arrive to see the food trucks outside and the thankfully a contained T-Rex outside. They then enter the tent to be greeted by Chewbacca, superheroes galore, and Storm Troopers. Action cars such as the famous DeLorean and others are there. And the vendors. Oh, the vendors. Creative wares, stuffies, collectibles, paintings, and so much more.

Inside the club there was a lot going on – giveaways, gamer tables, board games, retro arcade, gaming competition, more vendor booths, artist displays, costume contests, photo ops (The Iron Throne from Game of Thrones), and children’s activities.

Did we say celebrities? Yep, they were there, too. And did we mention the... Hmmm ... well, you get the idea. It was awesome. You’ll just have to attend MIL-D-CON 2023 to get the full experience. For those who were there, please share your experiences and ideas. For those who weren’t – we will see you next year!
