TAGGING: APRIL 12, 13 & 14, 2019
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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. 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 12, 2019: 5 pm to 9:00 pm (arrive as early as you can – we know many cannot arrive that early)
- Saturday, April 13, 2019: 9 am to 1 pm AND 12:30 pm to 6:00 pm
- Sunday, April 14, 2019: 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.
Permission Forms page has been updated with new forms for upcoming activities. Cadets and parents/ guardians are encouraged to meet the timeline for for submitting permission forms as there will be NO extensions.
