Lunch will be provided (Pizza is the only real choice in Wingham, we can do vegetarian pizza, and gluten free) – if you have other dietary restrictions, consider bringing lunch you can eat.

Parents, please ensure you have a cell phone or means of contact with you, given the weather forecast, if we are able to start flying operations, we may end early if conditions change. Safety is the primary obligation.

Cadets will be required to act as ground crew under the direction of staff cadets at the airfield – they will learn and practice ground handling of glider aircraft. Wear comfortable footwear, you will be on your feet while at the airfield.

Please watch the Facebook page and the website for potential weather cancellation.

22-24 Sep – 121 Tagging Weekend

Fall Tagging Weekend

Parents & Volunteers, *Urgently Needed*

On September 22, 23, and 24, 121 Red Arrows Air Cadet Squadron will be organizing our first major fundraising event of the training year.  Known as Tag Days, during these few days, every cadet will be signing up for mandatory shifts (minimum of 3) to help the squadron raise funds to put towards extracurricular activities like familiarization flying, squadron competition teams, survival exercises, field trips, sports activities, and other exciting events.  Cadets will be standing in front of assigned public locations in pairs to solicit donations.  Please encourage your cadet to discuss this activity with their respective Flight Commanders.

As a representative of the Squadron Sponsoring Committee, we would like to invite all parents to help out in this exciting event. We need parents to help us drive and supervise cadets to/at different locations, serve snacks, as well as count money.

All Squadron parents can be a Parents Driver.  In order to do so please note:

  • You need to bring your Drivers Licence and Car Insurance papers with you.
  • Let us know how many cadets you can take in your car.
  • Make sure the cadets have checked in with their location and are not blocking the entrance before leaving.
  • Check on the cadets occasionally during their shift.
  • Complete the driver form available from SSC each morning. Drivers_log

The Sponsoring Committee needs as many volunteers as possible to help our cadets to make Tag Days run as smoothly as possible.  Use the Contact Us form https://121redarrows.ca/contact-us/ to let us know how you can volunteer
