6. Re: 2021/2022 Sports Staff Team Member candidates - Thanks to all Cadets who submitted their pre-interview materials to CI Haripal and CI Schmidt to earn an interview to be considered for an appointment as a 2 Squadron 2021/2022 Sports Staff Team Member. Successful candidates have been scheduled interview times on Thursday 29 July 2021. See the website Activities calendar entry for specific timings.

7.     Join the Band - Now that you have heard and seen the band perform at Virtual ACR - think about being a part of the band next year.  We need new players for every instrument, especially percussion. No experience is necessary.  If you want more information or want a head start over the summer email CI Barron.  Watch for sign-ups on the website in September.

8. Keep in touch throughout the Summer via IG (https://www.instagram.com/2_vandenbos/) and/or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/2WhitbyAirCadets). And don't forget to check the website for regular updates, too. Please record and enter your measurements into the 'Update Measurements' section of the 'SUPPLY REQUEST' submenu option on the Squadron website in mid-late August so that we'll be able to be better suited to fit you into Dress Blues, FTUs, and Squadron Red T-Shirts ASAP in the Training Year.
