SUPPLY – Cadet Parka:

The 2014 budget is closing on 15 March 2015, this means that no uniforms can be ordered after the 15th of March.  If you need uniform parts please let Capt Sweitzer now on Wed Night.  The 2015 Budget will be available around 1 April so the downtime is short.

I have access to some Cadet Parkas (need to be ordered by 15 March).  If you do not have a Cadet Parka (level ones meet this criteria) or require a larger size, please signup on Wed night at the START of the night so you can be sized.  If you have a parka that is too small, please wash it and return it so it can be reissued.
