Tomorrow night is our administration night for returning cadets. This is where we fill out all of the necessary paperwork for another training year and put everything in order so that we can get started smoothly.
As I previously mentioned in the WRO, we won’t be charging the $60 annual assessment fee for the Air Cadet League of Canada’s OPC this year, but we still need to participate in OPC lottery ticket sales. This means that you’ll need to bring $60 for your book of OPC lottery tickets, which can be recouped if you choose to sell them all.
As always, we have four fundraising nights throughout the year, but we’re changing the balance a bit by eliminating one weekend of Cadet Tag Days and adding one additional bottle drive:
14 Sep: Autumn Bottle Drive
4-6 Oct: Cadet Tag Days ($100 post-dated attendance cheque required on Administration Night)
11 Jan: Winter Bottle Drive ($100 post-dated attendance cheque required on Administration Night)
25 Apr: Spring Bottle Drive ($100 post-dated attendance cheque required on Administration Night)
Also, in order to minimize the complexity of handling cash for canteen night, we are moving to a “Canteen Card” system. Cadets can purchase a $20 pre-paid card and every canteen item will punch off $1 from the card. Cards will be available from the SSC every Wednesday in September and then on every CO’s Parade night for the remainder of the training year.
Yes, Wednesday is largely an administration night for returning cadets, but if you have a friend who is really interested in our program, don’t think that you have to wait to invite them out. Bring them out tomorrow night and we’ll be happy to have them!
