    Let's Put An End To Breast Cancer!

    I'm sure there are links on the weekend website with ideas as well but here's a few that I know have been successful for people: fundraising parties, Texas Hold'em poker tournaments, car washes & having a table set up at a craft show or something, and tag days, where you get permission to be...

    Let's Put An End To Breast Cancer!

    As of yet undetermined, not sure if new CO will give us permission though but there's still plenty of time to decide that!  :P But I can tell you now to bring some kleenex for the opening/closing ceremonies!

    Unit training with local police service

    32 brigade did a domestic response exercise in early december that incorporated the local police department in a sort of protestor/riot scene. Also, there's talk of Mississauga fire department and my regiment sharing a training building in the future....things to look forward too perhaps?? Swanny

    This is not the Canada I remember [Boo-ing Team USA]

    I agree....too much analyzing, it happens in all games. Ignore it & carry on is all, in my opinion.

    Cambrian Patrol 2005

    Well, they only started off with MAYBE 20 people who actually showed up the first training weekend. And more have dropped out rather than people being chosen at this stage. I hope whoever makes the final team, I think to be chosen by June, that they do well! Swanita

    Missing some training

    That might be a little more difficult as you'll be missing more days of training. Submit a memo anyways and see what happens, of course specifying the reason is for a wedding in the family. Good luck with that.

    Missing some training

    It may depend. Once you've learned how to write a memo, write one to give your section commander specifying the dates you will be gone. What has happened to my recruits in the past is that the leave may be granted as long as your unit will be able to make up the training that you will be missing...
