    Weekly Update: March 5th to March 11th

    I’d like to start by first congratulating everyone who attended Aurora Cup this weekend. The level of teamwork, sportsmanship, and commaderie of the cadets in attendance was something to be proud of all on its own. However winning Top Overall Sqadron was an amazing bonus! I am incredibly proud of all the hard work of the cadets this weekend.

    • This is mandatory aircrew survival training and it is important that all cadets make an effort to attend as this will affect the completion of their level. As always, we will make any attempts to accommodate those who are unable to attend for valid reasons however due to the nature of the subjects being taught, it is far easier to get it covered while we’re out in the field.

    League Tickets & More Weather Updates

    This evening your cadet will be sent home a lottery ticket book from the Air Cadet League. This is a fundraiser we do every year that helps support the Air Cadet Glider Program as well as 517. It is mandatory for each cadet to sell one book however it is encouraged to sell more. The more books you sell the more points you will earn towards your priority ranking for summer camp. All books, sold or unsold will be due February 28th.

    Fundraiser Reminder & Important Upcoming Dates

    Sign ups for the Level 3/4 Weekend will start at break tomorrow. This is mandatory training (and assessments!) so all cadets that will not be in attendance should submit a note to Admin.

    Staff cadets will be asked to sign up for this as well in their usual location – note there will be specific classes for instructors to choose if they are available. 

    Cadets and staff are welcome to wear their appropriate civilian attire tomorrow. We are asking that cadets donate $1 to do this and the money is going towards the Upper Room Food Bank in Kingston.

    Staff cadet applications are now due on NOVEMBER 29TH. The application date was just announced and it is sooner then in previous years. There is lots of information in the Level 5 Office.

    Level 5 cadets that are in charge of events between now and the Holiday break are required to check in with Lt Roberts at some point this week to talk about your plans – this means you must come with some sort of idea as to what you are planning!
