1. The air mass exercise is taking place this weekend (28-29 Sep 19).  All cadets are to be at the Pembroke Armoury for 0630hrs on Saturday with breakfast eaten with all gear ready to go. Health Card and re-usable water bottle are absolutely necessary.
  2. Due to recent changes to air cadet gliding in Central Region (i.e. Ontario), we are now limited to one day of gliding in the Fall and one day of gliding in the Spring.  638 Algonquin Squadron has been scheduled to glide in North Bay on Saturday, October 5, 2019.  We will travel up to North Bay on Friday, October 4, 2019 and return to Pembroke after a day of gliding on Saturday.  We are limited to 30 cadets who can participate in Fall gliding.  In order to participate in Fall gliding you must submit a completed permission slip no later than 2130hrs (9:30pm) on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.  A final list of cadets who have been selected for Fall gliding will be posted on the Squadron’s website on Thursday, September 26, 2019.  Priority for selection will be given to cadets who did not get an opportunity to glide last year. If you hand in your permission slip and something changes that you are unable to attend you must inform Captain Dan Duchene.
