Well, “Chadburn” Did It Again

This past weekend the Squadron’s Band and Drill Team with arms competed in the Eastern Ontario Area Cadet Band and Drill Competition which was held at CFB Kingston. We are excited to report that both teams finished first in their categories and will be advancing to the Central Region Competition at the end of May.

Provincial Cadet Marksmanship Championship

If last weekend appeared to be somewhat busy then readers should know that the band and drill competition was not all that took place . There was also the Provincial Cadet Marksmanship Championship that was held at CFB Trenton. 15 of our cadets competed as three different teams at the competition. The team pictured below finished 3rd overall in the province and will now head off to Gimli Manitoba for the National Cadet Marksmanship Competition.  We wish them good luck and offer a very well deserved congratulations to all competitors.

Cadet Fund Raising

clip_image008

We had another very busy weekend with our annual spring Tag Day fund raising going on from Thursday until yesterday.  We dodged some pretty bad weather that was forecast and managed to have a very successful weekend.  I would like to thank all of the staff and cadets as well as Mr. Brooks from the Rotary Club of Oshawa for all of the hard work that went in to making the weekend a success.  A very special thank you to Mr. Lloyd and Mrs. Bone for all of their work securing locations for our cadets to utilize for this crucial fund raising activity.

I am always amazed at the level of dedication of some of our cadets who sign up for and then complete all seven shifts, I know that this also involves their parents and a lot of driving and sometimes waiting for things to be finished.  I do appreciate the effort it takes and thank you all for your continued support.  It definitely is a team effort.

As we get closer to the year end trip, I just want to make sure that parents are aware that like some other activities within the Squadron, just because a cadet signs up for the trip, doesn’t mean that they are guaranteed a spot on the bus.  As I have mentioned previously, if more cadets sign up than we have space for, a priority list will be established and those who do not make the cut will be reimbursed their fee.  It is necessary for us to establish a cut off point as we are limited by bus seating and bed space.  If anyone has concerns with this policy, please feel free to contact me.

That’s all for now.

Stay Safe and Have a Great Week

Major Bliss
