Imagine yourself as a brand new
Airman at Tyndall Air Force Base.
Now think about that weekend
coming up where you don't know
anyone, you don't have a vehicle to
travel anywhere and you're bored.
What do you do? Head to the Living
Room, a place that has re-opened for
the Airmen to kick back and relax.
"It is open for all dorm
residents who want to
come to a fun alcohol-
free environment," said
Staff Sgt. Sean Finley,
325th Fighter Wing
Chapel NCO in charge
and Living Room
TLR is attached to the
laundry room in the back
ofbldg. 1036.
Usually open on
Friday, the chapel
has scheduled it to be
open on multiple days
throughout the week.
A calendar has been
sent to all Tyndall dorm
Thanks to donations
from the Officers
Spouses' Club, the
chapel was able to
purchase a 1,080-pixel
high-definition projector
for TLR. A dvd/vhs
player with surround
sound is hooked up to
the projector.
"It's like having Airman 1:
your own little movie Squadror
theater," said Sergeant Rockban
Finley. "Previously, Room is
people have donated to hang o

dvd's and games."
A Playstation 3 was also
purchased with the Chapel Tithes
and Offerings Fund to fully utilize
the potential of the projector. In
addition to, various board games
and a second television set are
"Ultimately, we want the dorm
residents to be the people to open
and close the Living Room," said

st Class Zachary Kuiper, 325th Civil
Firefighter, plays the guitar on

a place created for the base dorm
ut and get to know one another.

Sergeant Finley. "Two individuals
have already volunteered to help."
Key holders will make sure the
room doesn't get roughed up,
and clean up before they lock up,
according to the chapel.
"The Living Room has been
revived," said Airman 1st Class
Zachary Kuiper, 325th Civil
Engineer Squadron firefighter,
dorm resident and a volunteer
key holder. "It just
gives us (Airmen)
something to do."
Places like this
weren't available to
Airmen in the past.
"Airmen should
come (to TLR)
because it's a
comfortable place
to hang out within
walking distance
from all of the dorms.
It's a great place to
socialize and meet
other people from
other squadrons on
the base," said the
sergeant. "It's a great
alternative from going
downtown, drinking
and making some bad
decisions. I wish we
had something like
this when we lived in
the dorms."
If you have any
questions about the
Living Room or
eronica McMahon would like to be a
Engineer volunteer key holder,

Tyndall Tigers survive Hurricanes: 94-83 SEMAC victory

The Tyndall Tigers men's varsity
basketball team improved their
season record to 10-1, surviving the
upset bid of the visiting Hurricanes
from Naval Station Mayport. They
took a hard fought 94-83 victory
in Southeastern Military Athletic
Conference action Saturday.
The Tigers began the game on
fire as they quickly jumped to a
double-digit lead and appeared on
the verge of running the bigger,
taller visitors from Jacksonville
out of the gym.
With 3:02 seconds remaining in
the first half led and a 17-pointlead,
Mayport went on a 13-5 run to trim
their deficit to nine points, making
it a 45-36 game. The momentum
had swung over to the Hurricanes
and in the second half, Mayport
kept chipping away at the Tigers

lead. With 7:57 remaining to be
played, the Hurricanes tied the
score at 71.
After a time out, the Tigers
displayed heart as they pulled
together and repeatedly denied the
Hurricanes the chance to take the
lead. The Tigers found their groove
again. Taking a double-digit lead,
Tyndall went into the delay game
and connected on timely free
throws to seal the victory.
Paul Figueroa, a newcomer to the
Tigers' coaching staff, summed up
the victory best by saying, "When
the game was on the line, the Tigers
responded like champions."
Melvin Smith led the Tigers in
scoring with 22 points; followed
by Marqus Armour with 18 points;
Chris Walker and Jared Austin
both scored 14 points each; and
Antonio Bazemore scored 10
points. Armour and Bazemore

tied for rebounding honors with
10 each and Smith led in assists
with five. Kerega McCollum led
the Hurricanes in scoring with a
game-high 29 points.
The Tigers are ou eas
on their bye week
this weekend, but
will return to the
hardwood as they
travel to Hurlburt
Field to challenge
the Commandos at 3
p.m. Feb. 9.
Tyndall has
clinched the
number one seed
in the upcoming
men's post-season
tournament, Feb. 16-
18 at Hurlburt Field. Keeser
Ft. Benning
A win against the Moody
Commandos means
the Tigers are the

conference regular season champs;
however, if they lose, they will be
co-champs along with their arch
rivals the Eglin Eagles.

provides military members with
a free, safe ride home within
