Orienteering Meet May 26th

There is an Orienteering Meet on May 26th at Centerville Park, Centerville (Map available here: https://avoc.whyjustrun.ca/events/view/3329). Cadets would need to be there at 1045 and the meet starts at 1130. It is a sprint series meet and should not last longer than an hour. Cadets will need to provide their own transportation. Parents may carpool but our staff are not allowed to arrange this.

This is an optional event for cadets, and is also on the same day as the squadron gliding.

Cadets that have not done orienteering yet will go through an information session during ACR Prep in the next few weeks.

Any cadets that wish to attend orienteering must sign up on Lt Roberts’ office door this Wednesday so we can sign up and secure maps.

More information on orienteering can be found here: http://orienteeringns.ca/about-oans/what-is-orienteering/

Sunday 13 May

  • Cadets will be arriving at Birchall for 5:30pm.  Please ensure that your cadet is picked up in a timely manner.
  • Note from Capt Bourque: Any delays will be communicated through both social media and phone calls home by your cadet.  Any delays in pickup where we are unable to reach parents will potentially mean that the cadet will no longer be able to attend overnight activities.  While we appreciate that things happen the expectation is that we will be able to reach home within reason when a child is in our care.  If your son/daughter will be walking home, it is important that this is part of the original plan, otherwise we are held liable indefinitely until they are in your care again.  I cannot expect my staff to wait for an undetermined amount of time, so unfortunately police will be involved if we feel we have attempted to reasonably make contact and have had no success in reaching you.  I appreciate your understanding.
