Team APG is hosting a communitywide Organization Day, dubbed Olympic Sports Day, at various locations on post July 26 (with a rain date of August 3). The day is set aside for garrison and tenant organizations to strengthen partnerships and build camaraderie while participating in competitive sports.
The daylong installation-wide organization day will still include the following competitive scored events: softball, kickball, volleyball, flag football, 3-on-3 basketball, a two mile relay race and golf skills. Recreational events will include Texas Hold-Em, spades, bowling (regular and Wii), dominoes, ping pong, billiards and horseshoes.
Multiple police working dog demonstrations have been scheduled as well as appearances by McGruff the Crime Dog.
Events will take place at APG North’s Shore Park, Ruggles Golf Course, Fanshaw Field, Shine Field and the recreation center and gym. Food will be available.
The bracket concept is a single elimination setup, with as many as 15 teams competing per event. First, second and third-place awards will be presented for each event, and the overall winner will receive the Commander’s Cup.
The event is open to all APG employees. Although mission will dictate participation, the Olympic Sport Day will be considered the place of duty for Soldiers and Department of the Army civilians. The uniform will be civilian casual for observers and civilian sports for participants.
The day is set aside for garrison and tenant organizations to strengthen partnerships, build camaraderie and boost morale while participating in competitive sporting events and other fun activities.
