On Saturday, the 861 Band along with 17 other Cadet marching bands, competed in the Lower Mainland Band Competition at Richmond’s Minoru Arena.  An amazing and solid performance by all the Cadets revealed itself when our Cadets marched on to capture the GOLD in the C Division. The accolades didn’t stop there, for our Drum Major, Warrant Officer Second Class, Pausch received the ultimate honor of being awarded Best Drum Major for the whole competition!  Congratulations to all of you, job absolutely well done.


Drill Competition

All of the cadets were polished and in great form while they competed for the Fraservalley title. Our 861 Cadets, led by Warrant Officer Second Class McEwan, put on a great show – we were all very proud of them!

Congratulations to WO2McEwan for placing 2nd in the Best Drill Commander category
