Signup sheets:
When applicable, we do have signup sheets out for activities.  Cadets need to signup (or check name off) to attend certain activities.  We use these for counts when we need food, lodging and transport.  We also use them to set timings and to contact you if things change.  In most cases the signup sheets are available on Wed night on the table where you do attendance.  Signup at that time or throughout the night.  AFTER Cadets is done (9pm) we don’t want people signing up.  Please take time at the start of the night or canteen.

Absentee:
We understand that life gets in the way sometimes and you can’t make a Cadet night.  Please call the office 306-757-2252 or email using the link on this webpage to state that you cannot make it.  Please try to do so before 6:30pm

Sewing:
Do you sew?  Do you enjoy sewing?  The Supply officer can now order the sew on Wedge patches.  Wedges (head dress) used to come without a patch or Brass (insignia).  The used to be a “brass” and got added after.  Now they are sewn on and come with the wedge.  If there are parents out there who can and are willing to sew, I can order patches for the older wedges that are still serviceable rather than throwing them out.  If you are interested in sewing a few please contact Jeff Sweitzer at jeff.sweitzer@sasktel.net
