May is nearly upon us and things are about to get busy. We’re starting with the inter-flight Drill Competition on Wednesday, which is the final deciding factor for this year’s Top Flight Award at the Annual Ceremonial Review on the 25th of the month. May the best flight win!
Next Saturday is the NGTA Band and Drill Competition to be held at CFB Borden. Our Drill Team has been working hard on Mondays to make sure that they are as prepared as possible for the competition. The bus leaves 809 Squadron HQ at 1000h (10:30am) on Saturday with an expected return at 1745h (5:45pm) on the same day. If you’re on the Drill Team, ensure that you arrive no later than 0945h (9:45am) on Saturday.
We’re in the midst of planning for the Annual Cadet Awards Banquet on the 24th, which is the night before our Annual Ceremonial Review on the 25th. Dinner for cadets is free, children under 12 are $10 each, and adults are $15 each. An event invitation will be sent out today via evite.com. Please let us know how many will be in attendance, including your cadets as soon as you can so that we can prepare for the correct number of guests.
