Good news! We’re BACK (did I emphasize that enough?!) to in-person training this week! Get your boots blacked and your FTUs ready. It’s time for the webcams to start collecting dust again!
There are a few things coming up that I’d like to bring to everyone’s attention. We’re going to be having an on-line parent briefing on Friday, the 10th of December at 1900 (7:00pm) to introduce parents and guardians of new cadets to our program and to offer a refresher to the parents and guardians of existing cadets. It will be held on Google Meet and won’t take more than an hour or so. If you know of any parents whose children might be interested in our program, by all means extend the invitation to them.
Also, though we are authorized to resume in-person training again, this unfortunately doesn’t extend to our annual Squadron Mess Dinner on the 22nd of December. We’re going to have to do what we did last year, arranging for deliveries of food and conducting the rest of the event on-line. Once again, we’ll look forward with hope to being able to do this properly next year.
Lastly, there is an opportunity for FSgts to attend an Merit Review Board for WO2 promotion on the 11th of this month. If there are any FSgts interested in sitting the MRB (and I recommend it for all, if only to have the experience of the thing) I’ll need your responses by Wednesday training at the latest.
Thanks very much to 2Lt Couroux and the staff for holding things together while I was gone. We have a phenomenal team here backing up this squadron and I’m proud to serve with them.
Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.
See you on Wednesday!
