Title: 4 week summer BMQ CFB kingston 2013
Post by: 1hSarnia92 on June 08, 2013, 16:22:03
So basically I am just wondering if anyone knows any information on a reserve BMQ in Kingston Ontario this upcoming July? Or is anyone going to be attending this course? One of my units CO's mentioned the possibility of a BMQ in Kingston starting on the 3rd of July but that's all he knew. Would all of the training be done at the RMC in Kingston? I'm just curious because I have never been to CFB Kingston. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Your unit only has 1 CO, he/she is the unit commander.  There will also be OCs who are the company/squadron/battery commanders, and Platoon/Troop commanders, etc


Would all of the training be done at the RMC in Kingston? I'm just curious because I have never been to CFB Kingston.
RMC is not part of CFB Kingston, also I'm confident that a Reserve BMQ course would not be run out of RMC.  If a BMQ is run in Kingston, I assume it would be run out of a reserve armoury or somewhere on CFB Kingston.  I believe some new barracks went up in Kingston on the CFSCE side plus a new/large mess.

Yes, 21 EW is running the course, led by their Reserve Sqn.

As for details, are you loaded on this course? If you are, joining instructions should have been sent by now, or will be out shortly and they contain the info you need.

Skeletor: They're using McNaughton side, only use the new dining facility on the Vimy side. For quarters, the BMQ-L thats running now was housed haphazardly in the mods (B-77). AFAIK they are working on getting them into proper quad rooms for subsequent courses.

I was just sworn in today, and I was told that I would be loaded on to the summer course in Kingston if there were any openings.

32 Svc Bn, where is everyone else coming from?

Like Jammer said,  all that info will be in your joining instructions.  Also,  I hope your spelling will be a lot better in your autobiography then it is on here, otherwise I see rewrites in your future  :P

Ask your unit clerk for them. They will probably attach them to your claim and route letter which you MUST bring with you.

I am a Vehicle Tech for 31 Svc Bn (Lon) and I will be attending this course. Anyone know what the 4 hooks on the kit list are? No one in my unit knew.
Also, anyone arriving on Sunday?

4 hooks might refer to coat hangers.  White, plastic coat hangers.

Based on seeing a few of the young "gentlemen" around town, I hope basic training is being carried out in RMC... >:D

The training will not be done at RMC.
the joining instructions say that it will be done at CFB Kingston.

The joining instructions ask that we bring documentation showing we have either a current CF EXPRES or Land Force Command Personal Fitness Standard evaluation.
I wasn't given this at my unit.
This is going to cause a few problems isn't it.

PteAJL, again.. have you spoken with your unit about this? Or are you now just reading your joining instructions for the first time?

When does the course start? July 3rd? If so you are able too speak with your unit on Monday about this.  Until then, do not over think things and assume everything will cause you problems.  You are not the first person your unit has sent on BMQ, so relax a little.
