Case Study - US Air Force 2021
Client: US Air Force
Event Type: Set up as entertainment for the airmen on base
Size: Hundreds of airmen with pre booked appointments
Duration: 5 days
Location: RAF Mildenhall, Suffolk
To provide a fun and engaging for the airmen and their families who are based on site. During these tough times it has been difficult for everyone based on site so it was booked to give a new and memorable experience for them.
We were contacted by Jennifer Kuhlman from the Unite programme at RAF Mildenhall to see if we could provide entertainment for 5 days for their squadrons. We were able to provide this and agreed to set up on the dates agreed. We arrived on site on Tuesday to set up, then ran it until Saturday evening. Jennifer had opened it up for booking 1 hour slots to enable lots of people to play, and it kept it organised and fair.
The event was great and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. With our software we were able to cater for all abilities from complete beginners right through to low handicappers. We played on courses such as Augusta National and St Andrews right down to a mini golf course for the young children. We were fully booked throughout the whole 5 days and received some great feedback. We had lots of people asking if we could come back in the future, and they are now looking to purchase their own set up from us! Even the base commander wants to buy one!
“We had Playpro Ltd come to RAF Mildenhall for 5 days and Scott was wonderful to work with. He kept in constant contact to let me know how the day was going since I wasn't always where was set up. Everyone who used the simulator had great comments and we are actually looking to either have Playpro come back again or purchase a system to have on site.”
