*If you are going to be absent please be sure your send an email to 893air@cadets.gc.ca 

Thank you for your interest in joining 893 Beaufort Air Cadets in Qualicum Beach.  We meet on Tuesdays from 1815-2100 hrs weekly following the school year calendar.  Our first meeting will be this upcoming Tuesday September 12th at 1830 hrs (6:30).

The evening will be an open house with the parent committee outlining their role and needs for the year to parents.  Cadets and parents will complete the registration process and once registered will be measured for a uniform. Please bring identification with you to complete the registration. The returning cadets will be available to tour the facility and answer any questions you may have.  You are not expected to remain for the entire evening and can leave once you feel we have answered your questions.

An outline of the next few weeks will be sent out early next week. We try to take advantage of the weather and do plan several activities on the weekends through October.  Once the cooler and rainy season is upon us our time is focused on the training material we are mandated to provide as well as optional extra curricular activities.  This year we are hoping to offer Marksmanship, Biathlon, Effective speaking, ground-school/CASC and other team activities.  These are subject to the interest of the youth and the staff availability.  As staff, much of our time is volunteered and we do our best to be available to support  everything offered.

If you have an questions please feel free to email me directly at Brenda.aumonier@cadets.gc.ca and I will respond as soon as I can.

Upcoming Events:

The first evening back will be Tuesday, September 12th at 18:30 (FTU's). It will be an OPEN HOUSE so parents need to come in and sign papers & pay registration.
