CO’s Message

This past week represented good growth for 809. We had six new cadets sign up for our program and we’re really excited to see their contributions over the upcoming years. Welcome to the squadron!

That said, we can always make room for more! If you have friends who you think would enjoy what we do, invite them out while we’re still early in our training year.

Sunday’s Decoration Day ceremony was well-represented by 809’s cadets. We had eight cadets sign up for the event but had 11 on parade! To all of the cadets who participated, whether you signed up or made the last-minute decision to come, thank you.

This week, we have our first Drill Team practice on Monday from 1900-2000, followed by squadron sports from 2000-2100. Wednesday, for our regular training night, we’ll be conducting our first Effective Speaking class with Mrs. Gowans for our level two cadets. We’ll also have Capt Hollands, our Zone Training Officer visiting us from Toronto to see how we’re doing.

Next week, beyond our mandatory and optional training nights, we have our Cadet Tag Days fundraiser. This serves two purposes. There’s the obvious fundraising component that helps pay for many of our training activities, but it also gets us out in our community and reminds everyone of who we are. More than one cadet has joined us after seeing cadets participating in Cadet Tag Day activities. Every cadet needs to sign up for two shifts for the weekend. Those who sign up for both shifts on Saturday will have lunch provided. Sign-up sheets can be found here: https://809cadets.ca/events/event-sign-ups/.

Remember that you need to be logged into the web site to see the sign-up sheets.

One last thing. We’re no longer posting the Wednesday night training schedule in the Weekly Routine Orders. In order to see what’s being taught to whom, refer to the Events Calendar for full details. It can be found here: Events Calendar.
