Good evening everyone,
For those of you who are attending the sports competition tomorrow morning, just some quick reminders.
- Be at the squadron HQ no later than 0715hrs on Saturday, January 28
- You’ve each signed up to be participants. We expect you to be there to help out your team. However, if there’s a situation preventing you from attending, you need to contact the squadron by phone, or by email, prior to 0700 on Saturday morning.
- Bus leaves at 0730 SHARP – Don’t be late.
- Bus is due back @ HQ around 1745hrs. Make sure you inform your parent/guardian
- It’s possible that we could head back earlier than expected. Make sure you alert your parent/guardian that they need to be accessible.
- Lunch is being provided
- Health Card
- Any prescription medicine that is required must be presented to the staff upon arrival at the squadron
- DO NOT BRING ANY NON-PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE!!
- Re-fillable water bottle (with water)
- Snacks for the day
- Something to entertain yourself with during the bus ride and while you’re there
- Note: You can bring electronics but they are your responsibility. If they get stolen or broken, that’s the chance you take.
- I’d rather you take some time when you’re not playing to socialize and to cheer on the other team (see below about that).
- Health Card
- What to Wear:
- Sports gear
- Athletic shoes
- Gym pants or athletic shorts
- WEAR YOUR NAVY BLUE T-SHIRT PLEASE
- NOTE: I have the new Squadron T-Shirts. You’ll need your navy blue t-shirt to wear as an undershirt.
- Do not wear just shorts and t-shirt for travel. Dress appropriately for the weather.
- Sports gear
New Info – Sports Teams:
Because we have 13 participating at this point, you’re able to play in 2 sports. We had a pretty tight timeline to put together the teams on Monday night. Unfortunately not many of you were at cadets, so we put together a list of who he’d recommend for each sport. See the email sent out earlier in the week for the team list.
Because you’ve been assigned a team, it doesn’t mean you can’t play the other sport. We can discuss during our bus ride out to Cayuga.
For the ugly part – You’ve all signed a Cadet Code of Conduct form when you started at the squadron this year. Make sure you’re respectable towards each other and also to any referees, staff, officers and adults on-hand. Any breech of the cadet code of conduct will be dealt with accordingly.
Have fun. This is meant to be an team building/bonding exercise. Don’t let the small stuff, or a bad call, or something else along those lines get in the way of having a good time.
See you all Saturday morning.
Lieutenant / Lieutenant Dan Couroux
Commanding Officer, 809 “Newark” Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron (RCACS)
