Some questions have come up about the upcoming week-end FTX:
- we do have high quality sleeping bags that we bought in bulk for sale at $50
- Supply does have a limited number of sleeping bags that they can issue. This will be on a first come basis (we really encourge people to invest in a sleeping bag).
- Supply will issue backpacks to those cadets who need one on Wed night
- all meals are provided (Ration packs - Saturday lunch/dinner & Sunday lunch). The Parent's Association is planning on doing a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning)
- please eat breakfast on Saturdayat home
- PLEASE ensure that you dress for the weather as the training plan has everyone outside all day.
Cadets / Parents:
There is a field training exercise (FTX) next weekend at Camp Pineridge.
Field exercises are part of the mandatory star level training so each cadet is expected to attend.
The following is planned:
- Gold star & above cadets will go the the site on Friday night. They will meet in the parking lot at 16:30.
- All other cadets will meet on Saturday morning at 09:00 in the parking lot and will hike into the camp (less than 1 km).
- All cadets will be staying in cabins (which have limited heat).
- Equipment issue will happen on Wednesday night and cadets will take this home that night.
- Pick up will be at 15:00 on Sunday at the parking lot.
- All signed out equipment must be returned the following Wednesday.
Camp Pineridge Directions
This weekend exercise is weather dependent. If winter returns in the next few days, we may have to postpone the exercise.
If you have any questions, please stop into the office on Wednesday night.
