This is not a Canadian Forces Website
This website has been much anticipated and is always a work in progress. Please forward any feedback or ideas you may have about the website by visiting the Contact Us section and filling out the feedback form. Please keep checking back for updates as we create the site and ensure you keep an eye on the calendar under Training for upcoming events. Please note that should something be cancelled last minute, it may not be reflected right away on the calendar, but you will be informed by your Flight Sergeant or at closing parade on Mondays. It is crucial that you listen to the announcements for updates. We will do our best to ensure the calendar reflects that change as soon as possible.
Registration for the 2014-2015 Training Year is Closed
Tagging is the squadron’s primary source of income to assist us with paying for facility rentals, activities, equipment, etc. We will be tagging on Oct 3, 4 and 5, 2014. Cadets are required to participate in 3 shifts of tagging. Should a cadet need to miss a shift due to extenuating circumstances, a signed note from the parent/guardian shall be handed in through the chain of command to the Deputy Commanding Officer.
Shift 1: Friday Oct 3 - 1700hrs - 2100hrs
Both Sunday shifts count as one shift. Certain locations open earlier on Sundays than others so spaces are limited. If you do a full day on either the Saturday or Sunday, lunch money will be provided. The start times for the shifts above are the time cadets are expected to arrive at the LHQ and the end times are the times cadets are expected to leave the LHQ for home. Drivers will be picking cadets up a bit earlier than the end times listed above.
Cadets should enter the LHQ through the back door of the squadron and form two lines down the hallway. Senior cadets will be paired with junior cadets. Cadets should be in C-2 (ribbons) and have their parka. Should a cadet not have a parka, a civilian jacket of a conservative style and colour may be worn. Cadets who do not have uniforms yet, will wear their regular Monday night attire and the same rules for jackets apply. Cadets will be signing up for tagging shifts within their flights.
Cadets Interested in Band
We are determining interest early for the band next year so we can hit the ground running in September. The sooner we have the information, the faster we will be able to set up.
Ideally, there will be two levels of the band. On parade nights, the Band Flight will function as a Duty Band to provide ceremonial support to the squadron during Opening, Closing and Commanding Officer Parades. In addition to this, there will be a Performance Band. This band will be comprised of the Duty band and any additional cadets that have other parade positions or functions during training nights and cannot fall in with the band regularly. The performance band will be geared toward playing public parades, performances, competition and the demonstration for the Annual Inspection. For the time being, our optional training night will be on Tuesday night.
Please send a message via the Contact Us section indicating the following preliminary information so we can begin planning:
I am looking forward to working with all of you,
Captain L. Yap VII
