BASE TOUR WEEKEND
Saturday April 29th - Sunday April 30th
Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts and getting supplies from Detachment, we have decided to cancel our Spring Field Training Exercise (FTX). Instead we have decided to turn our base tour day into a weekend activity. Activities to included tour of the control tower, fire hall tour, and static tour of a C17 aircraft. Cadets will be sleeping overnight at Trenton Cadet Training Centre. We may stay overnight on Friday as well. Timings to be determined.
Cadets are to sign-up by this Wednesday 29th March so we can properly coordinate accommodations and meals.

MONTREAL TRIP STILL A GO
Despite recent weather conditions, the trip is still on. Precautions will be made to detour near Mallorytown if the 401 is still closed. Navigation through the downtown core will be tricky. Weather is forecasted to be cloudy to sunny for Thursday and Friday. We have been assured by Franklin Coach Lines that we are getting a very good, experienced driver.
