CO’s Message

It’s an exciting week for competitions! On Wednesday, we have our annual Effective Speaking Competition and on Saturday, we go to Cayuga to compete in the Niagara Air Group Sports competition. It’s a great kick-off for an exciting February.

The Effective Speaking Competition takes place on the same night as our regular CO’s Parade, so the dress will be C1A but we’ll dispense with the actual CO’s Parade if the Effective Speaking Competition goes long.

Further details about the NAG Sports Competition will be posted before Wednesday.

Weekly Routine Orders – Week of 6 Jan 19

RO Number

Summary
Welcome back! Here’s hoping everyone had a great Christmas and is enjoying what we’ve had so far of the new year.

January isn’t a heavy month, but we have a few upcoming activities.

  • CO’s Parade on the 9th. Let’s make sure everyone gets back into practice and, just as importantly, that everyone’s uniforms still fit properly.
  • Winter Bottle Drive on the 12th. This is one of our mandatory fundraisers and so it’s important that all cadets (and as many parents as possible) are participating.
  • NAG Sports Competition on the 26th. We took away four out of five trophies last year. Let’s see if we can keep them, and maybe add a fifth, this year.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone’s return. Remember, if you know anyone else who you think might benefit from our program, don’t hesitate to invite them out.

Summary
We had a great showing at Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Santa Claus Parade yesterday. 809 Newark was given the first position in the parade and asked to form a flag party to start things off. We flew the Canadian flag, the Niagara-on-the-Lake town flag, and our own squadron banner as we and Snoopy (“Curse you, Red Baron!”) led the parade through the streets to the tune of “Snoopy’s Christmas” by The Royal Guardsmen. A big thank you goes out to Turkstra Lumber for providing the truck for our display; to Vintage Hotels for the loan of decorations; to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 124; to Lt Russell and all supporting members of the staff and sponsorship committee; and our cadets for another successful parade.

Our extra-curricular activities are done for the calendar year and we’re starting to slow things down as we approach our winter stand-down from 20 Dec 18 to 6 Jan 19, but there are still a few things happening:

  • Our effective speaking program will be continuing on Monday nights until 17 Dec.
  • We have a Merit Review Board on 10 Dec for FSgts and WO2s wishing to be considered for promotion.
  • We have our December CO’s Parade on 12 Dec with a few things to announce.
  • We have our formal Squadron Mess Dinner on 19 Dec to end the first part of our training year on a high note.

We’re still looking for new cadets to join our ranks, so if you know anyone who might be interested in what we do as a squadron, bring them out on 12 Dec. It’s a light training night and they get to see some of our pomp and ceremony, too.

Tonight we begin our practicing for the Annual Review Parde at the end of the month with our last CO’s Parade of the year. Make sure your shirts are pressed, your hair is cut (or up neatly for our females), your boots are polished and (males) you are freshly shaven.

The remaining Wednesday nights are very important for our completion of training. Please make every effort to attend.
