Unfortunately, we did not get enough teams and support to enable timely scheduling and bookings, so therefore Exertion 2017 has been canceled for April 1, 2017 at Trenton High School. This decision was not made easily.
It is disappointing to make this decision at this time especially knowing the work by staff and practice some cadets have been putting into preparing for the competition.
As EOA squadrons are in the process of dividing into the two new areas, the future of any Exertion competition will need to discussed by the COs.
It is sad to see Exertion not run this year especially after 30 plus years of competitions.
The CO's of Quinte Region are currently discussing the idea of a local competition. It would still be hosted in Trenton and more cadets would be able to participate to form composite teams to balance a round robin set-up. More info to come.
