Squadron Open Day 2009

84 Squadron is holding an Recruitment and Review Open Day and social barbecue on Sunday, 30 August 2009, and you are invited!

The cadets will be using the morning to tell their parents, supporters of the Squadron, and potential recruits, about all of the activities they've taken part in over the last year. And there have been a few.

Cadets from this Squadron have traveled across Europe and the world: skiing in the Alps, living on a military base in Germany, and representing the RAF on the International Air Cadet Exchange to New Zealand. They've experienced aerobatics in RAF training aircraft, flown solo in motor gliders (before being old enough to drive), and been passengers in helicopters. We've been shooting, played sports, won competitions for modeling, lead the Royal British Legion Remembrance Sunday parade in Baginton, manned the finish lines at two Race For Life events, tackled assault courses, packed hundreds of christmas shopping bags and done a lot of shoe polishing in between!

We'd like you to hear from the cadets themselves, see what we do day-to-day, and hopefully sign-up to experience it for yourself! And if that's not enough, then there's the barbecue at lunch-time - no matter what the weather!

Cadets are to arrive by 1000hrs, guests are invited to arrive for 1015hrs. We will be aiming to begin serving food by 1230hrs.

Please download the appropriate letter below, and make contact us to let us know if you are coming and wanting to stay for the barbecue.

Training Programme - Sun 9 Aug 09

OIC's Inspection today. Though if the weather is half-decent, there is a good chance he may get called in to work - an unusual occurrence this summer!

Other than the formal parade and inspection, as far as the cadets are concerned, it is Projects and Open-Day preparation. Those who need coveralls, bring them!

Dress: No 2 - Wedgewood Blues.
