OTTAWA RECREATIONAL TRIP – MARCH BREAK 2018

OTTAWA RECREATIONAL TRIP

MARCH BREAK 2018

121 Red Arrows Squadron will be participating in a trip to the National Capital Region from 10 – 12 March 2018.

We will be bringing the cadets to the Capital Region at the start of March Break and will be visiting several locations and will be seeing several important sites including the:

  • National Aviation Museum
  • National Museum of History
  • National War Museum
  • Centre Block – Parliament Hill
  • Rideau Hall
  • Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
  • Diefenbunker

The Cadets and staff will be staying at Connaught Cadet Training Centre near Ottawa where breakfast will be provided each day. The cost of the trip includes the cost of staying at Connaught and all meals and attractions.

The current estimated cost depends on how many cadets sign up for the trip. If we bring 40 cadets, the cost is $350.00 but if we can manage to bring 50 cadets then the price per cadet drops to $300.00. The deadline for payment will be Tuesday 27 February 2018.

Please note that the 1st payment of $100 is due immediately with the remainder due no later than 26 Feb. If this short notice creates some difficulty with funding, please do not hesitate to contact us if this is the case. (co@121redarrows.ca)

We realize that the turnaround time between this notice and the trip is rather short and can appreciate the issues this may present but we only just received approval from our chain of command a few days ago.

Should we not be able to reach our critical number of at least 40 cadets then we will need to reschedule the trip and try again next year.

Please read the attached document and forward any questions or concerns you may have to Captain Miller by email. (captain.craig.miller@live.com)
