Fall Training Weekend – Oct 14-15 2017
As the picture show, our new cadets had a chance to practice their camping skills over this weekend! Learning to setup camp, the basics to stay safe in the forest along with an immersion in our weekend training routines.
Our cadets cadets with 2+ years experience in the unit had a chance to setup up camp with minimal equipment along with fire building workshops.
In addition, we had a special visit from the Pictou County Amateur Radio Club who presented the basics of ham radio with their newly erected antenna tower.
Overall, it was a beautiful warm and sunny weekend, with the fall colours in full bloom at Camp Roderick near Sunnybrae. Additional pictures can be found in our picture section.
