By | June 07, 2007

ANDREWS AFB, Md. -- The Air Mobility Command's MatchUP game started and will continue through the month of August. 

Servicemembers and their family members are encouraged to see how they match up. 

"MatchUP is AMC's summertime program where participants can win great prizes by participating in various activities at their base," said Col. Benjamin Trotter, Air Mobility Command Manpower and Personnel, Services Operations Division, Services chief. 

The 2007 program will award more than 12,000 prizes in 90 days. 

The grand prize will be a 2007 Saab 9-3 Aero. Additionally, top prizes include a Carnival Cruise for two, along with extra spending cash. 

Each base will also have five guaranteed cash winners at the conclusion of the program. Services coupons will also be offered as instant prizes when registering game pieces. 

Online coupons will give the recipient their choice of six options to redeem at various services facilities. 

MatchUP is based on the old T.V.-game, Concentration. Match-UP is a Web-based program in which participants attempt to match up various symbols in the fewest number of turns and in the fastest time. 

MatchUP is an inter-active web-based program designed to help increase awareness and participation in Air Force programs, services and activities. Players receive game pieces for participating in MatchUP designated events. Each game piece is worth an entry into the grand prize drawings and is also a chance to play MatchUP. Players register their game pieces online at or utilize the toll-free MatchUP hotline at 888-597-9960. 

MatchUP also awards thousands of dollars in the Base Race. Your participation in MatchUP can help Andrews win thousands of dollars toward improving the base's quality of life.
