CO’s Message

Good evening!

For all of the cadets working on the on-line ground school, there’s been an extension for completion of the course. Previously, the deadline for completion was 0300 (EST) today but is now 0300 EST on Monday, the 24th of January. If you’re still working on those last few bits, you’ve got an extra week to get those done.

We’re still running virtual training, but are anxiously waiting for updates and will let you know as soon as we can about getting back to in-person training.

I’ll be scheduling another parent meeting for early February and will be nailing down a solid date for that over the next week or so.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.

See you on Wednesday!

CO’s Message

Good evening!

Thanks to all of the squadron’s families, friends, and Sponsorship Committee for the fundraising work that they put in on the weekend. With COVID-19 making a resurgence of late, the logistics of running a successful event were made much more complicated than they normally would be, so the appreciation of the squadron goes to each and every one of you for stepping up.

We’re still running exclusively on virtual training until at least the 24th of this month, but we’re going to make the best of it and carry on with our training until we can meet in person again. Updates will be provided as soon as we have them.

For the FSgts who are ready for their Merit Review Boards for WO2, these will be held virtually on the 29th of the month. We’ll be providing review materials and coaching in the time leading up to them.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety. When the new year starts, we may have some perks for those who have done so.

See you on Wednesday!

Weekly Routine Orders – Week of 19 December 2021

Date
19 December 2021

CO’s Message

Good morning!

These will be the final Weekly Routine Orders for the calendar year 2021.

This Wednesday evening is our 13th annual Squadron Mess Dinner. Due to the influx of COVID-19 cases, the dinner will have to be held virtually again, but this is still a better thing than not having it at all. For those cadets who have signed up, Swiss Chalet dinners will be delivered by the Squadron Sponsorship Committee and their hordes of volunteer elves immediately prior to the dinner schedule. We’re all looking forward to celebrating the commitment and fortitude that the cadets, volunteers, and staff of 809 have shown over the last year. This is easily the #1 reason for our success prior to the pandemic and definitely during it. We’ve all shown that we more than deserve the “Immortal” motto that we’ve come to identify with. Well done, one and all!

Our chain of command is rightfully concerned about the current infection numbers with the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus and has directed us to shut down all in-person and virtual activities after the Squadron Mess Dinner. This works out well for us as we were going into our Winter Stand Down until January anyway. We’re expecting to get an update on how we’ll proceed on the 10th of January, so this does mean that our stand-down has been extended by at least a week and that we won’t be returning to training on the 9th. We’ll be providing updates to everyone the moment we get them.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.

See you on Wednesday!

CO’s Message

Good evening!

We had our first parent briefing on the evening of the 10th and, as was expected in the weeks leading up to the holidays, attendance was sparse. Not to worry though, we’ll be running another in mid-January with a lot more information on what’s going on with the summer training program.

We have two training nights before our Winter Stand Down and they’re both going to be a lot of fun, even if only one of them is in-person. This Wednesday, we have a full evening of marksmanship with an opportunity for each cadet to show their skills and get a baseline for improvement throughout the year. Next Wednesday, we have our last training night of the year where we’re going to have our best approximation of a Canadian Forces Mess Dinner. Even if we don’t get it quite right, we’ll have a good time and enjoy some food (which will be delivered) together. We’ll need to collect the names of all cadets intending to participate, along with any food restrictions you might have so that we can get the order right. Lt Russell will be covering that this Wednesday.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety. When the new year starts, we may have some perks for those who have done so.

See you on Wednesday!

CO’s Message

Good afternoon!

A reminder that 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. We understand that December is a challenging month for scheduling, so we’ll add more briefings as necessary to bring those who can’t make it up to speed on what we do here.

I have a bit of bad news with respect to the Merit Review Boards that were initially scheduled for the 11th. These aren’t happening and our next opportunity will be the end of January. We’ll build up review and practice opportunities when we return from the winter stand-down so that everyone can be properly prepared.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.

CO’s Message

Good morning!

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!

Good afternoon!

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:

Effective Speaking

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:

CO’s Message

Good evening!

I hope everyone’s recovered from our first FTX of the year! (Okay, our first FTX in almost two years if you can believe it.) It’s good to be back at practical training again. Thanks to Lt Nicolescu for bringing it all together and to all of the senior cadets and staff members for making it a success.

This week, our focus is on Remembrance Day. I’ve already put out the call for cadets to volunteer at the vigils this Thursday and we’ll all be wearing full dress uniform (1A/C1A) on Wednesday to make sure we’re prepared.

If you haven’t submitted your uniform sizing to CI Dau, best to do it as soon as possible. To be very clear, mixing and matching of uniform items isn’t acceptable. It’s all or nothing, so if you don’t have a C1A uniform that fits, wear civilian clothing on Wednesday. There have been plenty of reminders, so unless you’re a new cadet or CI Dau has told you that we can’t get the right sizes yet, there aren’t really any excuses.

I’ll be away from the 12th to the 23rd, and won’t be in attendance next week, but will be back on the 24th and ready to pick up where we left off.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.

See you on Wednesday!

CO’s Message

Good afternoon!

There are a few items to consider for the coming weeks.

First, the Royal Canadian Legion (our primary sponsor) has officially begun the annual Poppy Campaign. Most immediately, this means that the poppy is a mandatory part of our uniforms until the closing of the afternoon Remembrance Day service on Thursday of next week. If you don’t have a poppy for your uniform, we’ll have them at the check-in table on Wednesday. This also means that the Legion Poppy Campaign is looking for volunteers in the community and cadets are authorized to participate.

Second, our first FTX is this weekend! We’re looking forward to a couple of days of hands-on training on Saturday and Sunday, so be prepared to come out and have a good time!

Third, Remembrance Day is next week and we have a role in it. Traditionally, 809 has stood morning vigil in shifts at the Old Town Cenotaph and has participated in the Old Town service in the morning and the Queenston service in the afternoon. Our role is scaled back this year due to COVID-19 precautions, but we’re looking forward to participating.

Further details surrounding the Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day will follow. These events demand full dress uniform, so if you’re still missing parts, let us know and we’ll get that dealt with as soon as possible.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.

See you on Wednesday!
