Band and Drill Team Competition – April 2018

Competition details for Saturday, April 21, 2018

Cadets who are participating in the band and drill competition this weekend will be excused from tagging on Friday evening and all day Saturday. Please ensure that your uniforms are perfect – badge placement, boots shiny, sharp creases in pants, etc.!!!!

Drill team practice – Friday from 1800-2100hrs, weather permitting. We will post an updated note on Friday by 1600hrs to confirm practice. Practice will be in civilian clothing – no boots but bring your wedge.

The competition will be held at CFB Borden, approx. 1.5 hours away.

Permission forms are to be signed and brought in hard copy (not a scan on your phone!) on Saturday. Please bring your health card and any medications you require to take throughout the day.

Please meet the bus on Saturday morning at 0915hrs in civilian clothing. Bring your uniform on a hanger(s) and in a garment bag (a garbage bag with a hole poked through it for the hanger(s) will suffice if you don’t have a garment bag). Label your bag with your name and squadron number (758). Boots should be covered or wrapped in kiwi cloths to ensure they don’t get scuffed. Lunch will be provided and will consist of box lunch. We can’t guarantee how many vegetarian meals will be provided so we recommend bringing your own lunch just in case. There is nowhere to purchase food.

Cadets should return to LHQ (55 Avondale Blvd) at approx. 1730hrs (5:30PM). We will have cadets call or text when we are on our way.

SPRING TAGGING INFORMATION 2018

TAGGING: APRIL 20, 21, AND 22, 2018

We are looking for lots of parents to drive our cadets to locations! If you can volunteer to drive, please speak to a member of the sponsoring committee when you drop your cadet off and ensure you have a valid driver’s license and insurance. If you have questions, please email 758argusnewsletter@gmail.com for more information.

Parents, please take care when dropping off your cadet. On Friday evening, there may be some overlap with the daycare and the parking lot will be busy. Please drive with care.

All cadets are required to participate in 3 shifts of tagging. This is the squadron’s primary fundraiser and as such, all are required to contribute. If you cannot complete your shifts, please bring a signed note by your parent/guardian the following Monday. Cadets will meet at LHQ (basement of the daycare) for all shifts. Cadets enter through the back door, while parents volunteering to drive enter through the front.

The shifts are as follows:

  • Friday, April 20, 2018: 5 pm to 9:00 pm (arrive as early as you can – we know many cannot arrive that early)
  • Saturday, April 21, 2018: 9 am to 1 pm AND 12:30 pm to 6:00 pm
  • Sunday, October 22, 2017: 10:30 am to 5:30 pm.

NOTE: Optional ½ day (1 shift) is in the afternoon on Sunday 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm. If you arrive at 10:30 am, you are required to complete a full day (2 shifts). No exceptions will be made.

Cadets who are staying all day on Saturday and Sunday will receive lunch money and will stay at the locations they are tagging at for their lunch. Cadets are reminded that they have 30 minutes for their lunch.

Uniforms must be pressed, boots polished, hair groomed, etc. Cadets who do not yet have a uniform are required to meet the same standard in what they wear. We are in the public eye and as such, are representatives of the cadet program as a whole. Cadets who are fooling around, slouching, chewing gum, etc. are not a positive reflection of the squadron and the program and will be cautioned accordingly.
