Saturday 1st June 2019
0930hrs-1530hrs(approx end) - Lunch will be provided. Cadets are to arrive in appropriate civilian clothing with their uniform. Parking may be an issue as there is a motorcycle ride scheduled for the morning.
We apologize for the late notice of added commitment. Cadets are to do their best to make it to practice but are more than welcome to only attend the ACR as it will be a combined effort with their band. We were offered to perform at 3 other unit's ACR and we wanted to make sure we picked the best one that benefits the squadron and fits into the aim of our band program.
