Weekly Message for 16 June 2021 (9 points of information)

1.     We have a lot more awards to give out! Come celebrate our cadets' successes and have an opportunity to say goodbye to our graduating cadets during our Supplementary Awards Night this Wednesday 16 June 2021. Cadets are to report to our Microsoft Teams' Opening Parade Channel at 1845 hour in your Squadron red t-shirt.  Don't have a Squadron t-shirt? Attend this event in appropriate relaxed civilian clothing.  See letter that was recently sent to Parents and Cadets for more information regarding this important event.

2.     Do you love, despise, or endure technology? This Saturday night  (19 June 21) we're getting together from 1900-2030 hrs (7 - 8:30 PM) to discuss tech of all types and what we love to use it for and what apps are best for certain tasks. Love a certain program for habit tracking or a certain game? Need to vent about ChromeBooks or online meetings? Come join in our casual discussion facilitated by Sgt Godden and have your voice heard. All Cadets welcome.

3.     Love to cook and/or bake? We're making a truly Canadian Dinner on 26 June 2021 Saturday during Checkpoint from 1900 - 2030 hrs (7 - 8:30 PM) and would love for you to join us. This is definitely a situation in which there cannot possibly be too many cooks in the kitchen! Sign up on the website activity calendar before Friday night and to view the recipe to shop for your ingredients ahead of time. 

4.     Beginning 30 June 21, Checkpoint will switch its meeting night to Wednesdays. That night, we'll be making scrumptious Butter Tarts in time to rock your patriotic picnics on Canada Day! Sign up via the Squadron website activity calendar by 29 Jun 21 to join us!

5.     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.

6.     In July, Checkpoint will be hosting a 'Battle of the Bands' of sort, where we'll be facing off our favourite songs, artists, groups, and genres against one another until we proclaim a champion. Watch the Squadron website activities calendar for updates and sign up.

7.     Keep in touch throughout the Summer via IG (@2_vandenbos) and/or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/2WhitbyAirCadets), VandenBos Cadets. 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.

8.     As advertised during our ACR earlier this week, check out our YouTube links for all of our Graduating Cadets' 2021 Legacy videos. These videos are now available to be played via our Ready Room Media Gallery.
