From the CO's Desk...
we start this training year a bit later than other years, we need to reflect on the past several months. I have a number of people to thank that have helped my transition as the new Commanding Officer go smoother than I had anticipated through this global pandemic.
Our training year will start this coming October 2021 and I am sure all of our cadets are eager to return to a fun and exciting training year!
With COVID on the 4th wave, the most important factor we all need to remember is the safety of our Cadets and our Staff members. The training this year will be a hybrid approach with both in-person training and virtual sessions. The plan is to have an engaging, challenging and safe training days both in our community and at our LHQ.
The plan is also to return to the traditional Summer Camps this coming Summer 2022 which is very exciting. More on this will become available soon.
Over the first few weeks, the staff will endevour to get everyone who is in uniform to the Supply Office to get needed exchanges done so we can all once again wear our uniforms proudly. More information will follow this task.
The senior cadets will assist staff with the planning phase of this training year. The seniors will provide input to the TRG O and assist the TRG O with the overall function of the training plan for the entire year. 2 NCO's will become Assistant TRG NCO's and will rotate monthly as the Asst. TRG NCO both virtually and while in-person.
This year will include some great additions of equipment with our corps, but I will not explain that until later in the month as this is a huge surprise!
Thank you to the Staff and Support Committee for keeping engagements continuing througout the past several months, you are all very hard workers and a huge asset to this Cadet Corps.
Stay safe and see you all very soon.
