Here is the information for this week:

Tagging: Thursday 12 Oct – Saturday 14 Oct 17

Cadets will be tagging at the various locations indicated in the attached schedule. Dress for the event is shirt, tie, tunic, and wedge. This is our biggest fund raiser so please ensure you are there for your shift.

Tagging Schedule October 2017

Tagging Supervisor Instructions:

Bring the tagging cans and the tags to the location assigned. A tagging schedule will be e-mailed out/posted on the website/posted on the facebook page. When tagging, cadets will stand in the entrance/exit of the store (unless directed otherwise by the store manager). Cadets can greet customers (example – Have a nice day.). Cadets should give those customers who make donations a tag and thank them. Cadets should be on their best behaviour as they are in the public eye. Cadets should not be slouching, chewing gum/eating, have their hands in their pockets, acting unprofessionally, etc. Please correct any issues that you notice. Cadets should be in their full uniforms (if they have them – some first years may not have uniforms yet) including shirt, tie, tunic, and wedge. At the end of the shift, please drop off you cans to the armoury (unless advised otherwise that someone will be picking up your can). Please ensure that the cadets’ names are on the bottom of the can. We track how much each cadet raised.

Recruiting – this year we will again be running a “bring a friend” program. All cadets are encouraged to bring a friend who may be interested in joining cadets. If their friend joins and stays over three weeks the cadet who brought the friend will have their name entered into a draw for a prize.

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.
