From the Co-Presidents:

Hello CPC families!

It is hard to believe November is already here and it is time to look forward to Thanksgiving! We have so much to be grateful for this year and our amazing CPC volunteers top that list! We are thankful for the friendships we've made as we work side by side with you on behalf of our Colorado cadets.

We would like to send a big THANK YOU to Steve Clancy, Tim Thompson, Jeff Ditlevson, and the rest of the Tailgate crew for a fantastic tailgate season! The CPC tailgate's reputation is widespread amongst the cadet squadrons and USAFA Security Forces and it's awesome that we can give back to those communities. Thanks to each and every one of you who brought food, helped with set-up and clean-up, and jumped in where needed each home game. I even overheard Alex, one of the members of the USAFA Falcon team, tell his parents to go to the Colorado Parents' Club tailgate because it was the best.

Thanks also to our Goodie Bag volunteers who helped with assembly and delivery on October 24th! Over 1400 goodie bags were assembled and delivered to each squadron in record time. Stacy Prater, Nico Mason, and the rest of the Goodie Bag team are AMAZING! We would be remiss if we didn't thank the Vista Ridge JROTC for all of their help, as well.

We are looking forward to watching Air Force football (and especially the Drum and Bugle Corps) play in the Commander's Classic in Arlington this weekend. One more win to go against Army and the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy will be back at the Air Force Academy! Go Falcons!

As you know, a club our size can not continue to operate without our volunteers. There is still a need for volunteer support. Please consider sharing your time and talents:

  • Fund Raising Chair (elected position)

  • End of Year Celebration Chair(s)

  • We need a 2024 or 2025 family to work with Colleen and Gary Foster to coordinate details for the for the 2022 New Appointee Event on 12 June. We are hoping for a fun, in-person event at Top Golf to welcome the new Appointees for the Class of 2026. Please reach out to Colleen Foster for more information.

Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving holiday!

- Paul and Kathy Puseman,
USAFA CPC Co-Presidents
