Reminder: If a cadet cannot make it to a Wednesday night/regular event, the cadet should leave a message on the squadron answering machine 632-3215. Please do not e-mail Capt Phinney or post on facebook. This will ensure the admin o gets the message and can mark the cadet as excused.

Note: Our website is up and running. It is currently under construction but we have started to add some helpful resources such as the IGs for instructors and the squadron handbook and standing orders. If you have a suggestion for information that should be on our website, just let one of the staff members know. We have also started a Twitter account to reach anyone that prefers access on Twitter.
