2012 Football Frenzy underway at AF clubs

Four airmen have already reaped the rewards of their Air Force club membership, and with free tickets in hand they and their guests will spend Veterans Day weekend in the Big Easy where the New Orleans Saints host the Atlanta Falcons.

In addition to game tickets, as winners of the first Football Frenzy 2012 drawing, their prize packages also include airfare, a rental car and hotel accommodations.

Winners included Charles H. Doan, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.; SSgt. Andy Ford, Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio; Edward Lanigan, Hurlburt Field, Fla.; and Col. Michael McNerney, Royal Air Force Station Mildenhall, England.

As Air Force club members, they participated in the annual Football Frenzy promotion at their local clubs, and their names were selected Oct. 12, during the first drawing of the 2012 season. Two more drawings are planned, but only club members who participate in Football Frenzy are eligible to win.

“Club membership comes with a variety of benefits, including the opportunity to win great prizes like tickets to a National Football League game,” said Shirley Stevenson, Air Force Personnel Center Football Frenzy coordinator. “Football Frenzy and other special programs are a great way to thank members for their patronage, and they help promote membership as well.”

Since the program was implemented in 1995, nearly 500 club members have been elected to attend NFL regular season and championship games.

The next Football Frenzy drawing will be Nov. 19 for the Dec. 13 game when the Dallas Cowboys host the Pittsburgh Steelers. The final drawing – Feb. 3 – will be for the championship game, slated this year for New Orleans.

“NFL game tickets are already a great incentive to participate in Football Frenzy, but championship game tickets are huge,” said Stevenson. “Few people can afford to buy them, but any club member in good standing could win them,” said Stevenson.

Club members and their adult (18 or older) dependents are eligible to participate. Members must attend a Football Frenzy event at any participating club and fill out an entry form. All participating clubs submit the forms to the Air Force Personnel Center Directorate of Services in San Antonio, where drawings are held.
