121 PIPES AND DRUMS

ALL BAND MEMBERS

We do not have access to William C Winegard Public School on three of the four Thursdays in April. As a result, we will be holding our practices at a different location.


Given the lack of space in the City of Guelph on Thursday nights to both train and parade we will be taking advantage of the generous offer made to us by Waterloo Textiles (215 Queen St W, Cambridge, ON N3C 1G6) and will be using their buildings.


If you are unable to make it to practice due to the new location, please email Captain Miller at captain.craig.miller@live.com.
Please be sure to follow this schedule:

Thursday 18 April 2019 – William C Winegard Public School
Thursday 25 April 2019 – Waterloo Textiles

DRESS STANDARDS & INSPECTION

Parents and cadets please visit: https://121redarrows.ca/cadet/resources/dress-standards/ for a comprehensive list of the requirements for an outstanding uniform.

The squadron Standards Officer is seeking continual improvement in the dress standard, and a new tracking system has been implemented to monitor individual cadets.  This next week the inspection will again rate boots on a scale of 1 to 5, as well as hair and appearance.  To score a 3 on boots, a minimum of a high shine on the toe is required.  To attain such a shine, an experienced cadet requires about an hour each boot, or two hours.  A good movie can result in a good shine.  “Kiwi” polish with clean warm water and a soft rag is recommended.  See YouTube for numerous videos on how Air Cadets polish boots.

For hair, parents please ensure the following standards are maintained:

Hair Male Cadets.

The following additional details apply to male cadets:

Hair must be taper trimmed at the back, sides, and above the ears to blend with the hairstyle; be no more than 15 cm (6 in.) in length and sufficiently short that, when the hair is groomed and wedge is removed, no hair shall touch the ears or fall below the top of the eyebrows; be no more than 4 cm (1-1/2 in.) in bulk at the top of the head, gradually decreasing to blend with the taper trimmed sides and back; and be kept free from the neck to a distance of 2.5 cm (1 in.) above the shirt collar. Taper trimmed square back styles and shaving of all the hair on the head are permitted;

Hair – Female Cadets.

The following additional details apply to female cadets:

Hair shall not extend below the lower edge of the shirt collar (see exception below). Exaggerated styles, including those with excessive fullness or extreme height, are not authorized. Braids, if worn, shall be styled conservatively and tied tightly; secured at the end by a knot or a small-unadorned fastener. A single braid shall be worn in the centre of the back. Double braids shall be worn behind the shoulders. Hair shall be a maximum length when gathered behind the head and braided which does not extend below the top of the armpit. Multiple braids and/or cornrows shall be directed toward the back of the head, pulled tight to the head and secured at the end by a knot or a small-unadorned fastener. Multiple braids extending below the lower edge of the collar are to be gathered in a bun. With the permission of the sqn CO, a reasonable period may be authorized in order to transition from short to long hairstyles during which time hair may extend below the lower edge of the shirt collar.

Dominos Gift Cards


Do you like to eat pizza? Do you like to support your Squadron? Here is a great way to encourage your squadron at no extra cost to you!

The Sponsoring Committee is selling Domino’s gift certificates for a large pizza that Domino’s has generously donated to the Squadron. Purchase a gift certificate for a large pizza for $10 and you are supporting the Squadron directly!

You get to redeem your certificate at Domino’s and the Squadron will be collecting the $10 and using it as a fundraiser going towards the Normandy trip this spring. You are essentially paying the Squadron for your pizza vs paying Domino’s directly.

We have a limited quantity of gift certificates, therefore ensure to purchase yours soon! The Sponsoring Committee will be selling tickets at the end of parade nights starting Tuesday February 5th until they are all sold.
