Bring a lunch that does not need to be heated. Supper will be provided. Bring snacks, juice, water.
Dress to be outside. Summerside is showing a high of ~10’C on Sunday, but it will feel much colder with the wind. There is little to no wind protection at the airfield.
Bring games, books, etc to amuse yourself and your fellow cadets. We will bring some sports equipment, but space if limited as we are on an active airfield.
The bus will be returning to the Armouries at 1900, if that time changes, updates will be posted on Facebook and Cadets will get a chance to call their parents.
NOTE: If you do not have all your paperwork completed, you must have it with you before you can board the bus. If you are unsure if your paperwork is all up to date, please contact the squadron on Facebook
There are also 4 extra seats available on the bus, if you wish to go, contact the squadron on Facebook and you will be added to the list.
