Our fourth annual fun-packed Pegasus Challenge has sadly come to an end. This is an annual three day event that happens every year at the end of May. The Pegasus Challenge is based on the concept of the Amazing Race. This year’s event took place from May 19 to May 21. The first day of Pegasus Challenge took place in the squadron with the focus on food challenges. Similar to food eating contests, the cadets are to eat the whole plate of food as fast as possible. All challenges on the second day happened around Vancouver.
Seven teams competed in this year’s race. Each team was made up of five to six people, ranging from people that had participated in the Pegasus Challenge in the past, to cadets who did not have any experiences within the challenge. Each team was named by a colour. Meanwhile, the majority of level 4s and 5s (Sergeants, Flight Sergeants, and Warrants) and officers acted as the staff team and ran the challenge.
As you can see, the three day challenges involved competition, teamwork, and physical fitness. As physical fitness is one of the cadet’s mottos, this challenge fits nicely with our motto. It aspired me to see how the cadets were always engaged and having fun in the Pegasus Challenge. I would highly encourage any cadets who enjoys being outside, having fun, and getting more involved to sign up for the challenge. It is also a great way to learn how to interact with your cadet mates in a competitive environment.
