Join DEF Detroit and the largest ever gathering of Department of Defense (DoD) Other Transaction Authority (OTA) Organizations in one place for a night of Feather Bowling at Bath City Bistro on Tuesday, June 4th at 5:30 PM in Mount Clemens! Feather Bowling is a Belgian sport that could be described as a cross between bocci ball and shuffleboard. It is played using wooden discs or balls that resemble a wheel of cheese and are rolled from one end of a trough shaped lane to the other, with the object being to land the balls closest to a feather “planted” at each end of the lane. It’s addicting!
After you get your feather bowling in, sign-up to come out the next day, Wednesday, June 5th for an Other Transaction Outreach industry and government event on at Macomb Community College in Warren, MI. The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) – Ground Vehicle System Center (GVSC) Acquisition Management Office (AMO) has partnered with U.S. Army Contracting Command – Warren and the Macomb Regional PTAC, and is inviting industry, academic, and government partners to learn about recent changes in DOD policy and guidance in leveraging the Other Transaction Authority from the organizations representing the vast majority of practical OTA experience. This one-day event will include an introduction to OTA for government and industry, expert analysis of the latest policy and guidance changes impacting OTA execution and administration; and a showcase of the leaders in OTA execution from across DOD.

If you are a military member, work in government, are an entrepreneur focused on national security, or find the idea of helping solve tough problems enticing, then DEF’s monthly Drink & Thinks are a great way to learn more.
Why should I register? Taking the couple minutes it takes to register helps the local DEF team to better prepare the planned space for everyone who plans on attending. Thanks in advance!
What are my transportation/parking options? Parking is available in the vicinity of the venue, but rideshares are never a bad plan either.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Feel free to message DEF any questions you may have on Facebook in advance, or shoot us an email. We don’t like spam, but are interested in just about anything else that falls into DEF lanes, so, when in doubt, reach out! We are, after all, about connecting people.
