Announcements – October 7, 2015

Fall FTX:
The first Survival weekend is on the Thanksgiving long weekend (9-11 Oct 2015).  We are planning to have the cadets home in time for Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday.  The Exercise will be at Camp Saskadet near Greenwater Provincial Park.  Kit Lists were handed out last week.  Please see the Training Officer if you did not get one.

Cadets are to meet on FRIDAY NIGHT at the Armoury at 4:30PM.  The Buses leaves at 5PM.  Please make sure you eat before you come or pack a HEALTHY bag lunch to eat on the bus.  No pop or junk food.  There will be no outside food allowed at the camp.  NO UNIFORMS.

Upcoming Events:

11 Nov 2015:  Remembrance Day is a mandatory event for all the Cadets.  If you have a uniform by them make sure it is clean and neat.  There are two main services that we attend…Cenetaphe and Barndt Centre.  The Cenetaphe is generally for the older Cadets and are chosen by the officers.  If you think you want to do this please make sure you see Supply in the next 2 weeks to get sized for a parka, gloves and toque.  The rest (majority) of the Squadron will be at the Brandt Centre.  Cadets will arrive through the players entrance on the south side of the building between 9:30am-9:45am.  Some cadets will be on parade, the rest will help with the offortory.

11 Dec 2015:   Fundraising Dinner.  Once again Siman Auto has asked the Cadets to act as servers and dishwashers at their Staff Christmas party.  We are looking for 6 Cadets from Level 3 and above to do the service(530pm start) and then help with the cleanup.  We will also be looking for 2-3 other cadets to help around 8PM-11ish with the cleanup.  Signup and more details will be available in the next few weeks.  The staff will choose the servers from the signup list.

Supply

New uniforms are starting to arrive and most of the returning cadets have been reissued or parts are on order.  This week, we will start sizing the Level One (new) Cadets.  Orders take approx 2 weeks to arrive.

Also remember that you require a NOTEBOOK and PEN each night.
