Our Spring Field Training Exercise (FTX) will be held 6-8 April 2018 and it will be a joint exercise with other air cadet units from Halton and Peel Regions. It is called Exercise "Halton-Peel Strong" and will be conducted at Blackdown Cadet Training Centre (CTC) located on Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Borden, just west of Barrie, ON. Attendance is mandatory for all cadets who did not attend the Exercise "Autumn Wind" in the Fall. Sign-ups must be submitted either online HERE, or by speaking to the Commanding Officer, Major Fox, in-person tonight (Monday, March 19, 2018). Permission Forms and further details (including a Kit List) can be found HERE. Every cadet must have submitted a signed copy of the Permission Form before boarding the bus the first night of the FTX. - THE DEADLINE FOR SIGNING UP IS THIS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2018. Due to the multiple units attending this event and the logistics involved, if a cadet does not sign up by the deadline, the cadet cannot attend.
*** Level 3s & Level 4s, please ensure that you check the Duty Staff Schedule to see when you are expected to act as a Duty NCO for your PO 303/403 Leadership practice/assessment. If you become aware that you cannot fulfill your duties on your scheduled night, it is your responsibility to find a replacement through your NCO chain of command. ***

MESSAGE FROM THE COMMANDING OFFICER:
To all members of 820 Chris Hadfield Squadron,
Our squadron does not own a building of its own, therefore we conduct all of our activities at locations that we rent in advance throughout the year from September until June, including our regular training on Monday nights. This year, however, we have not yet been issued a rental permit in advance for our use of Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School for the year. This means that, at the moment, we are going week-to-week and sometimes day-to-day with our use of Jean Vanier CSS. This affects regular Monday night training, Tuesday night Ground School sessions, Wednesday night Performance Band rehearsals, and Thursday night Drill Team practices. Our sponsoring committee (SSC) is currently working very hard to correct this situation with the school board. Until then, in order to get the most up-to-date information with regards to training each night at Jean Vanier CSS, please keep a close eye on our website and our Facebook page, and ensure that you are subscribed to our REMIND messaging and email service. Training conducted at other locations is not affected. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes, and we thank you in advance for your continued support and active involvement with all the great things that we do here at 820 Chris Hadfield Squadron.
