Night Owl/Early Bird Drop-Off Service
Drop off your keys and car at the service box located on Building 635 (in the driveway of the
Auto Hobby Shop), we‘ll do the work and call you when your car is ready.

Roadside assistance
Did you know that the Auto Hobby Shop provides a $20 on-base Roadside Tire Changing and
Jump Starting Service? Program 963-4942 in your cell phone and call our staff for assistance on
Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Wednesdays and Thursdays
from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Buyers beware!
Buying a used car without having it pre-inspected by a professional may end up costing you
more than you bargained or budgeted for in the deal. Before handing over the check, have it
checked out by the experienced technicians at the Auto Hobby Shop. For $25, they will do a
nose-to-tail checkup on your prospective purchase. It could be the difference between getting a
peach of a deal or getting stuck with a lemon. Call 963-4942 for more details.

Resale Car Lot
The fee to place your car, truck or motorcycle on the Resale Car Lot is $3.50 per week. All
others, including RV‘s, boats and trailers, is $7 per week. These vehicles can be viewed on our
website at www.jbcharleston.com or at the newly relocated lot along Davis Drive, just up the
street from the Stewart Avenue and Davis Drive intersection.

Here’s a bright idea!
Is your car‘s night vision leaving you in the dark? Chances are the plastic headlight lens covers
on your vehicle have ―clouded up.‖ It‘s time to make an appointment with the Auto Hobby Shop
and have our technicians restore those dull lenses for a crystal-clear view at night. Prices start
at $40 per set, and they‘ll even throw in a free car wash! Call 963-4942 for an appointment.

CrossFit
CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and
tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and
hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide. Our program delivers a fitness
workout that is by design, broad, general and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing.
Combat, survival, many sports, and even life rewards this kind of fitness. On average, it also
punishes the specialist. The CrossFit program is designed for universal scalability making it the
perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We‘ve used our same
routines for elderly individuals with heart disease and cage fighters one month out from bouts.
We scale load and intensity; we don‘t change programs. Check us out! Classes are Monday-
Friday, 6-7 a.m. and 5 – 6 p.m.; Tuesday – Thursday, 12 – 1 p.m., also Saturdays, 9 – 10 a.m.

Spinning with Marcus
Are you thinking about taking up spinning, but are not sure what it‘s all about? Don‘t worry; just
come out and join Marcus every Tuesday & Thursday between 10 and 11 a.m. This spinning
class is designed for all levels, including beginners. Learn the basics of proper bike setup, hand
positions, and safety issues. No need to sign up, just show up with your bottle of water and
work-out towel.

What is the fittest, strongest unit on base?
How would you like to be recognized as a member of the most physically fit unit on JB
Charleston? Two new fitness initiatives are – The Fittest Unit and the Strongest Squadron
programs, both of which are quarterly fitness awards. For the Fittest Unit award, the results will
be based on individual test scores collected from the Fitness Assessment Cell with data from
the Air Force Management System. The quarterly ―Fittest Unit‖ award will recognize the unit with
the best composite score average by dividing the total male and female scores by the total
number of active duty tested. To determine the winner of the Strongest Squadron competition,
each active duty squadron member will perform as many push-ups and or sit-ups as they can
during a week. The overall goal is to reach one million push-ups and sit-ups for the installation.
The squadron with the highest percentage of push-ups and sit-ups based on the number of
overall eligible Airmen in the squadron will win. Units that win either category during a quarter
will receive a trophy and have its name posted on the JB Charleston Unit Fitness Award board
located in the Fitness Center. All members of the unit that wins in the third quarter will receive a
personalized ―Fittest Unit‖ or ―Strongest Unit‖ t-shirt. Unit fitness program managers and
physical training leaders who would like more information on how the program is administered
and tracked, can contact Steve Parrish at 963-3347.

Local “AMC idol” talent contest Aug. 25
Would you like to take your karaoke or shower opera performances to a new level? Is it worth
getting paid up to $500 for giving it a shot, and the opportunity to perform with a live band, sing
to a national audience and win an additional $1,000? If so, it‘s time to sign on the dotted line
and step up to the mike because Charleston‘s version of Air Mobility Command‘s ―icon‖ talent
competition is set for Thursday, Aug. 25. ―AMC icon‖ is a competition loosely based on the
―American Idol‖ television show. Each act will be reviewed by a team of three local ―celebrity‖
judges on several categories including technical excellence and showmanship. Our local winner
will go home with $500 and will be invited to perform at the command-level competition Oct. 20
at Scott AFB, Ill., if they are active duty. Second and third place winners will receive $300 and
$200, respectively. All participants are equally eligible to win the base-level contests however,
only AMC active duty Air Force members, including AMC affiliate units (guard and reservists),
can represent JB Charleston in the command finals. At the AMC competition, the first-place
winner will be handed $1,000. Also, the winner of the AMC competition will receive a special
audition/interview opportunity with the USAF Tops in Blue. Participants here in Charleston will
be able to perform karaoke-style the song of their choice, which each contestant must provide
on a CD, with the entire song not to exceed five minutes. This is a one-person contest; no
groups or backup singers allowed. Also, no self-accompanying instruments, such as a guitar or
piano, are permitted. At the command competition, all acts will perform live with the AF Band of
Mid America singing the same song that was performed in the base-level competition. Sign-up
deadline is Aug. 5. Four rehearsals will be held before the local competition. Each contestant is
required to make at least two of the four rehearsals in order to compete on Aug. 25. The venue
for the local competition is the Charleston Club, with all of the action starting at 6 p.m. in the
LowCountry Bar & Grille. There is no cover or admission and everyone is invited to possibly
witness the making of a new musical star. For more information on ―AMC icon‖ and to
