I hope everyone enjoyed the lessons on Tuesday!
We are off to a slow, but great start! All cadets should have been measured for uniforms now and many received their initial issue this week. New uniforms continue to arrive weekly, so if you are waiting for an item, please be patient!
October 25 – Marksmanship begins and will occur from 1830-2000 hours at the hangar. All cadets are welcome to attend. Appropriate civilian attire is required – no uniforms!
October 26 – All cadets will wear appropriate civilian PT (Physical Training) clothing so that they can participate in Canada Fitness Testing. Ensure you bring a water bottle, a mask and appropriate footwear for running (and completion of the “beep test”).
October 31 – We will host advanced placement training, for those identified last week, at the hangar from 0900 – 1600 hours. Dress will be civilian clothing for cadets and FTU’s for instructors. Course cadets should bring their parade boots for drill classes.
