Spring FTX Information

This weekend, from 29 April – 1 May, cadets will be taking part in a mandatory Field Training Exercise at Mansfield Outdoor Centre, in Mansfield, north east of Toronto.  This activity is mandatory for all cadets, as there will be assessments that can only be completed in the field.

Cadets must be at Don Montgomery CRC no later than 17:15 for kit verification before we depart on the bus at 18:00.  Cadets must eat dinner before arriving, as dinner is not provided on Friday night.

All Cadets must have their Health Cards before boarding the bus.  Paper copies will not be accepted.  Any cadets without a valid Health Card will not be permitted to attend.

The Kit List was provided to cadets last week.  Cadets must dress for the weather.

We anticipate cadets will be returning at 16:00 on Sunday, 15 November. Any changes to that will be reflected here as well as on the Facebook page.

For Cadets & Parents – 2016 Spring Tagging

Twice a year, the cadets of 631 Sentinel Squadron go Tagging.  Tagging is the most important fundraiser of the year: every dollar the cadets earn goes directly into the squadron budget.  The more money raised, the more activities the squadron can run for the cadets.  Tagging provides the money for accommodations, equipment, training supplies, meals, and much, much more.

In order for all cadets to benefit fairly from Tagging revenue, all cadets are expected to complete a minimum of two shifts.  Cadets who do not participate in the required number of shifts may have their summer training offers refused.

Sign-up for tagging was started two weeks ago, and has concluded tonight.  As a reminder, the tagging shifts are as follows:
Thursday, 14 Apr – 17:30 – 21:00
Friday, 15 Apr – 17:30 – 21:00
Saturday, 16 Apr AM – 07:30 – 12:30
Saturday, 16 Apr PM – 12:00 – 17:00
Sunday, 17 Apr – 10:30 – 17:00

Dress for cadets is C-2, and cadets should be prepared for the weather.  Cadets without a uniform should be in white shirt, black pants and black tie.

We also require parent volunteers to act as drivers during Tag Days, to take cadets to and from their Tagging locations.  The more volunteer drivers we have, the lighter the load on all drivers, and the faster we can get cadets out to their locations to earn!  Any parents who have not already volunteered to drive, and are available on any of the above dates are asked to come forward when they are dropping their cadet over the course of the weekend.

This year, we are also offering some fun and exciting incentives for our cadets:

The Top Five earners will receive a gift card to Scarborough Town Centre, valued at $100, $75, $60, $40 and $25 respectively.

Any cadets who earn more than $200 over the course of the weekend will receive a free ticket to our Annual Squadron Banquet.

Finally, cadets will have the opportunity to throw pies at Senior Cadets and Staff!

Each cadet who individually earns $150 will be provided with one pie.  Each additional $50 will provide the cadet with one additional pie. Cadets who work all five shifts will also receive a pie.

Cadets can then throw those pies at anyone who has been “unlocked” by the total amount brought in by the entire squadron:

$7 000 will unlock WOII Huynh & WOII Chen
$8 000 will unlock WOII Antao
$9 000 will unlock CV Lemos & CV Samson
$10 000 will unlock Lt Mathulan Manikkarajan & 2Lt Kumaraswarmy
$11 000 will unlock Lt Manoharan
$12 000 will unlock Lt Manojen Manikkarajan
$13 000 will unlock Capt Baitz
$14 000 will unlock Capt Davidson
$15 000 will unlock Capt Lee

Once the final tally is determined, we will announce more details on putting pies to faces.

As well, the staff are offering secret incentives if our goal of $15 000 is met.  For example, Capt Lee has promised that if we meet that goal, he will allow the cadets to shave his head!

If you’ve always wanted to throw something at the CO and his staff, this is your chance!
