Thank you Peter Algra, Philip Algra, Jack VanSanten, Tino VanSanten, Phil VanSanten, Shayne Kinshella, Justin Best, and Steve Willing for doing such a bang up job on November 29th!

This years competition was the definition of crunch time! After many deviations and complications in the the band training year, we were able to dig deep and find our excellence on the competition day. There wasn’t a better example of being cohesive as a team than this event. Our band performance was outstanding; awing even the judges. We had a great amount of support shown by our cadets families in the stands. Thanks to the committee for putting on a wonderful lunch.
The rock climbing event on Monday April 23rd was a huge success. Beginner or expert, everyone had a blast. Captain Martin did a great job organizing this event and I was extremely pleased that Mrs. McEwan and the committee were able to cover the costs. Those who did not come really missed out on a great time!!!.
