I'm swearing in on the 28th of June........ I'm also going out west to PPCLI after. 

I'm hoping for 1st or 3rd as well.  I've lived in Edmonton for a few years already a while back and I really like theh city.  Plus, Shilo doesn't really seem like its a booming metropolis of fun, but I could be wrong.

I was supposed to be sworn in on the 28th too, they called yesterday and changed it to the 5th of July, something about having to be within 30 days from oath to BMQ... I wonder if they'll changed yours to the 5th.

Hey Arsenal,
They did change the date of my swearing in to July 5th, so I guess I'll see you there.  I'll probably be on the same train to St. Jean as well.

No doubt.. I'd bet most of us will be on the same train.

Whats everyone doing over the summer to get ready? I plan to lay on the beach in Grand Bend all summer ;D.
