Provincial Marksmanship Success!

Our marksmanship team represented our corps exceptionally and brought home plenty of hardware from the Provincial Marksmanship Championship April 23 and 24 at HMCS Cabot in St. John’s. Overall, the team of MWO Samantha Burke, MWO Amber King, Sgt Daniel Hewitt, Cpl Jessica Perry-Nichol and LCpl Joey Williams, coached by Lt Didham, finished third place taking home the bronze medal. There were some outstanding individual performances, especially in standing shooting, with MWO Burke finishing 1st overall and MWO King 2nd. MWO Burke has now advanced on to the National Marksmanship Championships as an individual competitor. This year’s nationals are held in Gimli, MB from May 2-7. Congratulations to all team members and good luck to MWO Burke! You can view the results from all provinces and follow along with the nationals at this link: hw7.ca

37093_remembrance-poppy1We have lots in store this weekend, including some tryouts for optional teams, as well as assisting the Royal Canadian Legion with their Poppy Campaign.

Here’s a quick run-down of the activities happening this weekend:

Also on Saturday and Sunday, our Master Cadets (WO Hayward, WO Leake and WO Payne) are participating in a Master Cadet Workshop as part of their mandatory training.

Sunday, Nov 8
10am-12noon – Band Practice
10am-12noon – Open Marksmanship Team Tryout
11am-1pm – Open Biathlon Team Tryout
Again, open tryouts for anyone wishing to be part of either of these optional teams

On Thursday Nov 5 from 7pm-8pm – Our Supply Office will be OPEN. If you are missing those last few items, come visit our supply room during these times. There may be ore uniform parts arriving in the coming days, so we will post another announcement if supply will be open for other times.

Tuesday, Nov 10 – No Cadets

Wednesday, Nov 11
We ask all cadets to meet at the LCdr Paddon Building in full uniform at 7:30am. It is an early day, but an extremely important one to us all. There will be a bus there to meet us, which will bring us to the various Remembrance Services we will be participating in. We will post complete details as Remembrance Day approaches!

It definitely looks like a busy weekend, but please bear in mind that band, marksmanship and biathlon are optional – we encourage cadets to attend but they are by no means obliged. All of the Poppy activities this weekend are by volunteer only. We look forward to seeing all of our cadets on parade for Remembrance Day on Wednesday!

Best of luck to the cadets that will represent 2515 at the Provincial Orienteering Championships on Sunday, Oct 18 in Shea Heights. Those cadets are MWO Samantha Burke, WO Clark Payne, MCpl Tyrell Wyatt, Cpl Muneeb Azher, Cpl Conor Nemec, and Cpl Jessica Perry-Nichol.

Good luck everyone and do us proud!
