D.   Turn east (left) at Churchill Avenue where you will go through the main gate for the base.  There may be a Commissionaire on duty who may stop you.  They will be aware of our activity so just inform them that you are there for the cadet drill competition at the LTF and they will let you in.  They may ask to see ID of whoever is driving the vehicle;

E.    Once on to the base, continue on Churchill Avenue and then turn north (left) on Rhine Road; and

F.    Turn east (right) on Vimy Avenue.  You will then see the LTF on your left hand side.

G.   When arriving, please DO NOT use the south entrance doors.  This is not the main entrance, so you would likely not naturally do this anyway, however, we have been informed there is a goose nesting outside the south entrances so we are to stay away.  Please use the main west facing entrance.

From the 395 Squadron Parents’ Association:

  1. ACR tickets go on sale next week.  Cadets pay $5 deposit all other tickets $40.  There is no discount for children who are not cadets.

 

  1. Bingo dates for the next 4 months are at the PA office. We need summer volunteers as we must still man these Bingos.

 

  1. Our Casino Fundraiser is July 7 and 8 at Palace Casino.  We are in need of daytime and evening/nighttime volunteers.  Casinos raise approximately $80,000 and are our most important fundraiser.  Volunteers must be 18yrs old or older.  Please sign up with the parents association.  This is a major fundraiser that only comes up every 2 years.

 

From Major McLellan:

 

1.             The Spring Field Training Exercise was very successful this past weekend.  Thank you to the cadets for being well prepared and eager to learn, thank you to the staff for organizing the training and especially thank you to the parents that came out to assist with food and other support tasks.  A great all round team effort!

 

2.             Any cadets who took pictures on the Spring Break Trip, please share them with Maj. McLellan so that we can have one squadron photo album to remember the trip by.

 

3.             With the Annual Ceremonial Review coming up, all cadets need to review how to maintain their uniforms.  Please look on the squadron website for information about how to wear and look after your uniform.  There’s even a YouTube video!

 

4.             All cadets need to research and familiarize themselves with our Reviewing Officer for the ACR, the Chief Reserves and Cadets.  Look up who it is and some details about that person.  You will be quizzed next week!
