Spring Tag Day (Saturday April 13th) – [Updated 20190405 1616 Hrs]

April 13th is Tag Day!

This is an important squadron function, so please plan to attend.  Please note:  You need two fundraising points to attend the year-end trip. Fundraising points are acquired at the rate of 1 point per shift (morning or afternoon).  If you want to attend the year end trip and have not participated in a previous fundraising event or tag day, you will need to complete both morning and afternoon shifts on this tag day.  For cadets participating in both the morning and afternoon shifts, lunch will be provided.

Looking for all cadets to come out for the morning, afternoon or all day (pizza lunch for those staying for the whole day!)

This is an important event for the squadron as it’s an opportunity to:

  • represent 211 in our community awareness about our program
  • raise funds for Squadron activities
  • earn fundraising points required to be eligible for the year-end trip (each half day = 1 point…2 points required for the year end trip)
  • have the opportunity to practice speaking in public

While most cadet activities are run entirely by the Squadron, Tag Day requires the participation of parent volunteers to make it a success.  If you are a parent and available to drive cadets to their location and to stay with them for half a day or all day, please send an email to Squadron Support Committee member Carol Ann Hartung at cahartung@gmail.com

Spring Field Training Exercise (FTX – Friday April 26th – Sunday April 28th)

The squadron’s spring FTX is scheduled for the weekend of April 26th – 28th. Details on sign up and the kit list are still to come.
