Marksmanship [Cancelled]

Other Information: Due to the freezing rain warning marksmanship practice has been cancelled, it will start back up in the New Year.



When: Saturday December 14th from 08hr40 to 13hr30

Where: Camp Fortune

Dress: Dress in layers and be ready for the weather. It is usually about 5 degrees cooler at CF than in the city, and we will be outdoors almost the entire time. Handwarmers are a good investment for exceptionally cold days. Experience has shown that a pair of thin gloves under mittens works well both on the range and on the trail. Cadets who wear glasses – it is a good idea to apply a little anti-fog spray to them before practice.

Other Information: Bring plenty of drinking water (there is no potable water on site), and a lunch. The region requires you to your provincial health card at practice. FSgt Rudin-Brown will be waiting at the base of the trail with the squadron banner. Meet there and she will escort the team to the chalet.  Please clearly communicate pick-up time to your parents in advance as there is NO CELLUAR signal on site, and you will not be able to call /text them. Please review the 211 Squadron biathlon handbook. If you have any questions, don’t reply to this email, but to 211squadronbiathlon@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP!
