Just a reminder that our summer monthly virtual check-in through Zoom will take place tomorrow evening at 1800hrs. Fill out the below electronic RSVP to get an invitation!
As mentioned in the 2020 Campaign Plan, we are taking the opportunity of the current situation to recapitalize our material. This will allow all Air Cadets to receive a Field Training Uniform (FTU). However, while Public Health Measures remain to combat the spread and transmission of the COVID-19 virus, we are requesting your help to provide us with the measurements required to place the orders. In order to do that, we are asking you to consult the attached measuring guide and respect the instructions below. Please return the attached form completed as soon as possible.
TECHNICAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR INDIVIDUALS TAKING MEASUREMENTS
- This form should be completed with the assistance of an adult.
- Individuals being measured should remove bulky items such as wallets/cell phone from their pockets.
- They should NOT stand at the “ATTENTION” position.
- All measurements should be taken close but NOT TOO TIGHT due to slight grow.
AIR CADET FTU FORM FILLABLE
Cadets are to email their fillable form to the Supply Officer, OCdt Pekilis B. here.
THIS FORM IS DUE TUESDAY 25th AUGUST 2020
With summer 2020 underway, cadets are encouraged to enrol in a Virtual CTC. There are still spots available and 608 cadets are more than welcome to register!
Many of the courses posted have multiple sessions so registrations will be accepted throughout the summer.
More information on the Cadet’s Canada FB page.
I am reaching out to you all today to see if we can obtain some assistance with the virtual sunset ceremony that was initiated back in late April 2020.
As you may be aware, we have had a number of Officers and Cadets working on a Virtual Sunset for Blackdown CTC for the last little seven weeks. To that end, we have noted that we are coming up a little bit short on video submissions for the music portion of the Virtual Sunset. The team leads have been working with the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo (RNSIT) to create these videos (3 separate musical arrangements) and it would be important that we keep them engaged as a long term partner wit our organization.
What we are looking for is to see if you could you to pass along the following information to your local units in an effort to have any and all cadets that are musicians (cadets that have attended Intermediate or Advanced Music Courses) that may have an interest in participating in this Virtual Sunset.:
Thank you in advance for your assistance and if there are any questions, please feel free to contact me.
