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.
