Corn Maze Timings and Parents Meeting Reminder

To clarify this weeks update, the timings for the Corn Maze will be from 1pm-3pm.  Thank you to those who brought this missing info to our attention.

This is also a reminder that there will be a parents meeting tomorrow at 7pm.  We will be going over the many upcoming activities as well as providing more information on how as a parent you can help support the squadron.  There are several fundraisers and community events that we could use occasional adult support for (similar to the Air Show).  If you are interested in helping out in this way, please attend the meeting tomorrow or pass a message through our social media.

Junior’s Weekend Information

This weekend Oct 14 and 15th is our Junior’s Weekend.

This is an opportunity for the Level 1s and Level 2s (first and second years) to complete some mandatory training. What this means is that cadets that do not complete this training will likely be held back from promotions and may not complete their training level this year. This is in accordance with our national training standards and documents.

Saturday will be range from 9-4 at the Morfee Center (where we had CO’s Parade). Cadets that have not shot independently before will be given classes on range safety and proper firing techniques. All cadets in attendance will be given the opportunity to shoot. This is mandatory for level 1 and 2 cadets. Not participating may hold you back from promotions in the future. There will likely be no opportunity to make up this training this training year. Cadets who are being moved up to level 3, or were moved up in previous years and HAVE NOT shot independently before may attend this training however they MUST sign up by Wednesday night. Dress is appropriate civilian clothes.

Sunday will be a garbage clean up in Greenwood. Pick up/drop off point will be at the Greenwood soccer field and this will also be 9-4. This again is mandatory for cadets to attend. There will be one other opportunity for cadets to complete this activity this training year however we encourage all level 1 and 2 cadets that can come to please sign up and attend. Dress is appropriate civilian clothing and please dress for the weather with layers.

Lunch is being provided on both days. If cadets have dietary restrictions they need to make that known on the sign up sheet. As well, if cadets are only able to attend one day, please ensure that is also noted on the sign up sheet. We need accurate numbers for the lunch.

Any questions should be directed to the squadron email for Lt Roberts to answer.

Air Cadet League

The National Air Cadet League is having an online auction of merchandise/services as a means to generate much needed revenue to support the work of the League.

The auction is being hosted at an online auction site for non-profit organizations called eFlea. The link to the ACL auction is https://aircadetleague2017.eflea.ca .

As a point of consideration, the Air Cadet League funds the maintenance of all gliders and tow planes that are used across Canada.  These activities would not be possible if it wasn’t for the support of the league.

 

Thanks
