I haven’t seen any word yet on how our team placed in the NGTA Band and Drill Competition this weekend, but I’m confident that our team put their best foot forward, when commanded to do so, of course. (Please, pardon the bad drill humour.) As soon as I have any information back from the NGTA office, I’ll be sure that everyone knows. Thanks to the entire team and OCdt Couroux for the effort they have put in to make 809 proud. I don’t need to see the standings to know that they’ve accomplished that already.
Thanks to Cpl Lett, Sgt Lett, and WO2 Voogt for assisting the local Royal Canadian Legion branch with their Honours and Awards dinner on Saturday evening; and also to 2Lt Nicolescu for volunteering to supervise at the last minute.
If you haven’t RSVPed for the Annual Cadet Awards Banquet on the 24th, please do so as soon as you can. Once again, dinner for cadets is free, children under 12 are $10 each, and adults are $15 each.
All Monday evenings from now until the Annual Ceremonial Review on the 25th, with the exception of Victoria Day, are geared 100% to display preparation for the review. It’s important that all cadets come out for these. If you can’t make it out, let the staff know as soon as possible.
This week, we’ll be doing our spring fitness testing, so all cadets should be in sports attire and ready to push their best.
By Wednesday, I also expect to have further details and a sign-up sheet for our recruiting booth at the Virgil Stampede.
