Capt. Lemoine is currently away, but will be back for our next training night. In the mean time, if you need anything that you’d typically approach the CO about, feel free to contact me during his absence.
Back to virtual training.
Well, we had a great run of in-person training. Now, under the direction of RCSU, we’re back to virtual training until further notice due to the increase of COVID-19 infections in the Niagara Area. This has affected every Squadron/Corps in the region so we’re not the only ones having to revert. Let’s make the most of this and have fun. Virtual training is being conducted through google classroom at our usual location. Remember, you need to be logged in using your 809 cadets email address in order to participate.
Lt Nicolescu has provided the following schedule. Links to the individual meeting rooms per class are included:

Mrs. Gowans is starting the Effective Speaking classes this Tuesday evening, Nov 16 @ 1900hrs. As with our parade night, this class will be conducted on-line at our squadron Google Meeting site. For 2nd year cadets, this is mandatory. However, anyone can, and is encouraged to take part. The classes will take part for the remainder of the year and for at least the first month of 2022. This year the SSC has put forth prizes for the squadron level competition. I encourage everyone to take part as it provides you with a solid background for you to become fantastic instructors, and the benefits will stick with you for the rest of your life. If you’d like to attend, please tune in to see what Mrs. Gowans has to offer. She is asking that you be prepared to present a 1-2 minute presentation about yourself. Remember, in order to access the site, you need to be logged in using your 809 Cadets email address. Here’s the link for the class:
