MANDATORY FTU & VALIDATION SURVEY
The National Cadet and Junior Canadian Ranger Support Group will begin issuing Air Cadets FTU (Field Training Uniform). Each cadet is entitled to one Jacket, one pair of Pants and one pair of Boots.

Please note we are only allowed to place one order for the entire squadron, (all cadets on one order). We have already delayed the order, as we want to get as many measurements as possible; however, we are unable to delay this order any longer. Please don’t miss this opportunity to receive an FTU.
This is a multi-purpose form; it will cover personnel administration to make sure we have the correct contact information for each cadet and touch on how training may be conducted in September.

Parents Watching Parades
When watching our cadets during opening or closing parade please remember that the band playing O Canada and God Save the Queen along with the march on and off of the flags are significant acts of respect for our country and our monarch please remain silent during these portions of the parades. Thanks.
IMPORTANT - Pick Up/Drop Off and Parking
All parents dropping off or picking up cadets or stopping by to enjoy watching part of our parade please remember the following issues related to parking to ensure the safety and well-being of all cadets and parents.
Under no circumstances should any 111 Parent or Cadet park in the following illegal locations as you are subject to ticketing or towing by parking enforcement personnel and it puts the Squadron at risk of having our neighbours phone the authorities to have the rules enforced:
The area on 11th Ave gets very congested at the beginning and end of the each training night in order to ensure the safety of all of our cadets and their families please remember there are easy drop off/pick up points on Maple Street to the East of the Armoury or on Arbutus Street to the West of the Armoury. Please make the process faster and easier for all cadets and their families and help reduce the impact on our neighbours by using these locations.
Thanks for your cooperation.
